New Website

The new website is online.

After many nights, many hours… selecting own photos which is very difficult as each photo connects with some memories.
It’s not the final version, I will add more in the future, but I love it.
Thank you to all who helped us to get this website up and running.
Enjoy it!

KEEP THE BALANCE, KEEP THE FOCUS

During the lock-down, we felt that one of the challenges was to keep the focus on what matters and keep the balance among all this contradicting information circulating.
What matters, what do we need to read, how much should we discuss and talk about this pandemic or focus on the daily tasks.
We both believe that this applies not only for the time during the pandemic but applies every day.
Please scroll through the images below and let us inspire you.
These images are available as limited fine art prints.
The series is limited to 15 prints for each photo and two artist prints.

#metoo Well done Sofia

Wir alle kennen den #metoo-Hashtag, ich dachte bisher, er sei nur außerhalb meines Freundeskreises, mit der Corona-Pandemie geriet er sogar ein wenig in Vergessenheit.

Gerade in dieser Zeit outet sich die griechische Olympiasiegerin Sofia Bekatorou über ihr eigenes Schicksal und geht mit einer Erfahrung an die Öffentlichkeit, die sie seit über 20 Jahren mit sich herumträgt.
Es gehört viel Mut dazu, in der Sportwelt gegen einen mächtigen Verband und olympische Funktionäre zu kämpfen.

Ich arbeite seit über 10 Jahren eng mit Sofia zusammen, sie kämpft wie eine Löwin, wenn sie etwas erreichen will, bleibt dabei aber immer sehr freundlich und einfühlsam.
Bescheidenheit ist eine iherer wichtigsten Tugenden, welche sie sehr gut beschreibt, die erste griechische Fahnenträgerin. Das habe ich selbst in Rio bei den Olympischen Sommerspielen 2016 mit erleben.

Der Kampf gegen die mächtigen Funktionäre des griechischen Olympischen Komitees ist noch nicht zu Ende, das ist erst der Anfang, aber Dank dem Mut der Sofia diskutiert nun die griechische Regierung in den kommenden Tagen über die Aufhebung der Verjährung von Sexualstraftaten. Das wird den Weg für viele weitere Fälle öffnen.

English

We all know the #metoo hashtag, I used to think it only happened outside my circle of friends, with the Corona pandemic it even fell into oblivion a bit.

Just at this time, Greek Olympic champion Sofia Bekatorou is coming out of the closet about her own fate, going public with an experience she’s been carrying around for over 20 years.
It takes a lot of courage to fight in the sports world against a powerful federation and Olympic officials.

I have worked closely with Sofia for over 10 years, she fights like a lioness when she wants to achieve something, but always remains very friendly and caring.
Humility is one of the words that describe her very well, the first Greek flag bearer. I was able to experience this myself in Rio at the 2016 Summer Olympics.

The fight against the powerful officials of the Greek Olympic Committee is not over, this is just the beginning, but thanks to the courage of Sofia, the Greek government is discussing in the coming days to lift the statute of limitations for sexual offenses. This will open the way for many more cases.

Well done courageous Sofia

#rethinking: Gespräch mit Dr. Franzi Glueer von der ETH Zürich über den Aletsch Gletscher

Dieser Artikel ist Teil des Gletscher Projekt www.glaciers.today

English version

Am Großen Aletschgletscher ist das Zusammenspiel von Gletschereis und Felsstabilität zu sehen – und wie schnell dieses Gleichgewicht aus dem Lot gerät.

Dr. Franzi Glueer ETH Zürich

Wer bist du und was machst du in der Aletsch-Region?

Ich bin Ingenieurgeologin beim Schweizerischen Erdbebendienst und forsche an Hangrutschen und Felsstürzen im alpinen Raum. Am Grossen Aletschgletscher habe ich 5 Jahre lang die Felshänge im Bereich der Gletscherzunge vermessen und konnte die Entwicklung eines langsamen tiefgreifenden Hangrutsches zu einer rasanten Massenbewegung verfolgen.

Wie bist Du zu diesem Projekt gekommen?
Ich habe an Hangrutschen in Patagonien geforscht und dabei Prof. Simon Löw von der ETH (Ingenieurgeologie) kennen gelernt. Nachdem ich einige Jahre im Ingenieurbüro geschafft hab, hat mich das Aletschprojekt dann in die Forschung an die ETH gezogen.

Wie lange bist Du nun schon in der Aletsch Region am Messen & Forschen?
2013 haben wir dort die erste Totalstation zur Überwachung von Spiegeln in den Felswänden aufgebaut. Meine Forschungsarbeit über das dort installierte Messsystem und die grosse Hangrutschung von Moosfluh konnte ich im 2018 abschliessen. Seitdem arbeite ich beim Schweizerischen Erdbebendienst und forsche auch an anderen Hangrutschen in der Schweiz. Zur Moosfluh komme ich aber immer wieder.

Was sind die wichtigsten Erkenntnisse aus deiner Forschungsarbeit am Aletsch Gletscher?
Ich hatte das grosse Privileg mit meinem Team von Ingenieurgeologen der ETH Zürich, die Entwicklung eines Hanges von einer langsamen zu einer sich rasant beschleunigenden Massenbewegung zu beobachten und zwar von Anfang an, da wir zu einer Zeit unsere Sensoren installierten, als die Moosfluh noch kein grosses Thema war. Dass die fehlende Last des Gletschereises auf den Hangfuss eine Massenbewegung aktivieren kann, war hier mehr als deutlich. Auch, dass der mit der Gletscherschmelze sinkende Grundwasserspiegel im Hang einen grossen Einfluss auf die Bewegungsraten hat. Des Weiteren habe ich am Mechanismus der Hangbewegung Moosfluh geforscht und ein System entwickelt, wie man anhand von gemessenen Bewegungen an der Oberfläche auf den Mechanismus in der Tiefe schliessen kann.

Wie motivierst Du die so lange über diese Thema zu forschen?
Für mich ist der ganze Bereich der Naturgefahren irgendwie eine Herzensangelegenheit, und am Aletsch gibt es noch so viel zu erforschen, da könnte ich noch lange dran bleiben.

Was können wir Menschen aus Deiner Sicht verändern um den Klimawandel zu bremsen?
Ich forsche ja mehr an den Auswirkungen, die durch ein sich veränderndes Klima entstehen. Momentan habe ich die Möglichkeit noch viele andere Hangrutsche und Felsstürze zu untersuchen. Da wird einem schnell klar, wie verletzlich man ist im Vergleich zu den Kräften, die in einem solchen Hang frei werden. Dieser Respekt vor der Natur lässt einen aufhorchen und handeln. Ob das nun umweltfreundlicher Reisen ist oder ein verändertes Konsumverhalten, es gibt vielfältige Lösungen um die eigenen Treibhausgasemissionen zu vermindern und damit etwas gegen die Erderwärmung zu unternehmen.

Beginne das neue Jahr mit Balance

Er hat es wieder getan
Skateboard-Bauer und Holzmeister Christoph hat nach monatelangem Testen und Tüfteln das neue Top Indiana Balance Board vorgestellt.

Ein einzigartiges Stück Holzkunst, mit dem er die Messlatte in dieser neuen Trendsportart sehr hoch legt.
Über die Feiertage durfte ich die neuen Produktbilder und ein Action-Shooting mit Elia Colombo, einem unserer Schweizer Top-Foiler und Balance-Meister, machen.

Seit ein paar Tagen habe ich nun so ein Board zu Hause und das alte Gefühl vom Skateboarden, Surfen kommt langsam zurück, meine Balance hat sich in einer Woche vile verbessert und ich habe das Gefühl, dass ich den ganzen Körper inklusive Rückenmuskulatur nebenbei trainiere.

Da die Produktion noch nicht ganz läuft, ist der Verkauf / Handel auf einige wenige Läden beschränkt, wer auch ein Board haben möchte, kann es auf meiner Website bestellen.

Art inspires and motivates

Art inspires, art motivates, We need art to remind us that life is worth living there is a life, a family, friendship and also an economy after the coronavirus.

In the last two weeks, I read so many articles and news about this virus. Somehow I struggle to accept the fact that we slow down the global economy because for something we are not sure but think it will be bad. Sweden is on a different strategy, will be interesting to see the results of it. We need more testing, but we s still think the real numbers of the infected person is ten times higher, but if they are ten times higher than the virus is not so lethal, etc.

By reading the statistics of the previous flues I see that Germany had 25’000 death in the 2017-2018 winter and the US had over 65’000 death. I’m confused, would like to argue but I can’t change the politics I can’t change the fact that we are all living hidden in our apartments in slow motion. I think by now we all heard all the different theories and arguments.

Yesterday I got a call from China, China is closing down again the movie theatre’s, KTV’s etc.

This morning a friend from Italy called me, he got a phone call from the hospital, his mother is not well, the fever is high up and he can go and see here any more. He told me with a firm voice once she dies they will put here in a spacial bag and cremate here.

For a few seconds, I thought about the photos of the army tracks in front of a hospital in Italy. 

I feel sorry, really sorry deeply sorry. we spoke about the family dinner we had last time all together in an Italian restaurant eating “fritto misto” mixed seafood. But we also realized this dinner is already many years in the past.

I’m not sure how many more of these calls we all will get in the coming weeks, sincerely hope not too many, hope not a single one.

For me, it’s time to make a jump if I could I would like to jump in the future with the same elegance Laetitia did it during the shooting.

Every time I look at this photo it motivates me to move on, leave the old world behind. Ok, I agree we can’t leave the corona-virus behind, not yet. But we can start to plan and organize for the post virus time.

Maybe I see the glass a bit more than half full but it’s time to move on.

Before we finish..there is one more thing:

The power of imagination is to enable us to see an alternative future where reason sees none.

I wish you a good week and plenty of energy and maybe this photo can motivate you to jump in the future.

From now on you can find this photo on Saatchi Art.

Body Art Photo Workshop

Guess it’s about time for two confessions, don’t worry nothing really bad.

Last week I promised you that I will finish the big wave photos from Nazaré, I agree the photo above doesn’t look like a big wave photo, will probably take a few more days.
Body Art Photo workshop, how comes..?
Since quite some time, over a two years I started to shoot more and more with women. All this started with a pregnancy photo of a friend and guess what, we did really well on a international contest.
So step by step this style and photos evolved, until one day I got a call from a Cirque du soleil acrobat although I haven’t really published or disclosed to many of this photos.
Here name is Laetitia and you will see many more photos of her in the future.
She proposed that we should shoot together, I’m not in here league I thought and told here.

In the mean time we had more then one shooting, and since a few weeks we call this project (notshy.art). Right before end of last year we run a private nude art photo workshop with two very ambitious photographers who really loved that day.

Why don’t we give a chance to more ambitious photographers to shoot with such an amazing model. Laetitia in the mean time got even published on the Spanish playboy magazine.

So here here we are on March 22nd we will run our first workshop. It’s a Sunday and we simply want to give 5 photographers the chance to shoot with us.
The workshop is divided in two parts:

Morning
We look at the studio light, light shaper, soft boxes etc and see how we can modify the light and play with it.
All photographers learn the using light with an egg, we organize an big ostrich egg, already did some test with it. It’s really great how you can play with shadows gradients etc.

Afternoon
In the afternoon Laetitia will join us and we will set up 4 or 5 different sets/compositions and shoot with here.

I’m really looking forward for to this day, hope you will join us.

Body Art Photo Workshop in Zurich 22. March 2020

A Moment with Shirley Robertson

JK_Shirley_2018_12_5686_CO copy

Shirley, in my view, is an exception. I always ask myself who that person is, what makes her different and capable of winning two Olympic Gold medals in a row?

I know there are plenty of athletes who have more than two gold medals, but in my view sailing is unique as the complexity of this sport is superior than in many other Olympic disciplines.

The world today is superficial. I see the tendency of running after the quick win, the low hanging fruits. Competing and winning two Olympic Gold medals requires the complete opposite, long term commitment, dedication, the energy to get up again and again after a defeat, isn’t that incredibly inspiring?

Will I be able to see and experience this during the shooting with here?

The portrait project with Shirley was not a short one. We have been talking about it since months; soon we realized we need many different photos, we need a series of images, each of them for a different purpose. It clearly would take a day to get this done.

It would be an intense day, and at the same time, I felt the weight on my shoulders: responsibility and a privilege. I cannot only spend a day working with her, ultimately what I see through my lens is what the people, who do not have the chance to meet here in person, will see of her.

JK_Shirley_2018_12_5573_CO

We all know the expression: A picture says more than a 1’000 words…So let’s get this x-thousand words right.

At the end of the project, we selected 20 different photos, each showing Shirley with here many facets, each with a different message.

It turned out to be an intense day, a potpourri of colors, ideas, a combination of clothes, expressions, lights, coffee breaks and much more. It’s tough to stay focused for so long in front of the camera, but she did it, and how she did, was terrific.

Not only is she a good sailor, but no wonder why she works at CNN, BBC and much more. One set after the other, she always came back on the set with outstanding positive energy, motivation, and commitment.

Even more, we could guide each other, she trusted me, and then we executed those ideas one by one, until the end of a long and intense day.

Is that one of the secrets and reasons why she can win two gold medals in a row? Did I had the chance to experience what makes the difference of losing or winning? Probably yes!

I have not experienced this with many people such a persistent focus and commitment over a long time in front of the camera.

Thank you, Shirley, it was more than a moment, it was a precious time with you and your partner Tim.

Look at the photos with this link.

A few days after the shooting I got an email from Shirley:

I know I have said it ten times already – but I’m chuffed with the images, they show oodles of personality.”

Sport & Beauty Photography

For the past couple of months, I’ve had the pleasure to work with a very special world class athlete – Priscilla Leimbacher. Priscilla is one of the world top five bikini fitness athletes.
Portrait and sport photography is my homeland. I feel confident anticipating the action whilst mastering the light and composition of each photo.
However, over the last couple of years, I’ve had the chance to taste the beauty photography and learnt that the element of action is being replaced by the much higher expectations in terms of lighting and postures. I truly enjoy working in the studio, where I have the full control which then creates endless ideas and possibilities.
I have already planned another shooting with Priscilla Leimbacher which will take place in the upcoming weeks, shortly before her next world class competition.

A Magic Moment


 

JK_Braden_17_12_25102

Portrait session with a leader

I took a deep breath after hanging up the phone receiving confirmation to photograph Kristine Braden for the next Sphere Financial Magazine cover. I had the feeling this portrait session is going to be special, very special.
This is neither the first time I’m photographing personalities in the financial industry nor the first time taking a portrait of a woman. This time, it will be the first time I will be photographing a women e leader in the finance industry: Kristine Braden, CEO of Citibank Switzerland, she is also the first and only board female member of the over 100-year-old Swiss Bankers Association.

JK_Braden_17_12_25082Doing online research and getting to know the person is the first step in the preparation process. For every Sphere magazine cover, we feature a CEO of a Swiss bank on a an Eero Aarnio Ball Chair, and I always challenge myself to find a way to combine this chair with the personality of the subject and the brand that he/she is representing to make the cover portrait a “Wow”. Working on color scheme is never easy – finding the color scheme that fits with the personality of the subject and the brand behind. American contemporary graphic designer Paula Scher created the current Citibank logo after the Citicorp-Travellers Group merger, blue is the key color but the red coming from the umbrella of Travellers is also important.
In the mean time I contacted Citibank Switzerland PR head Yvonne Chan to schedule the time slot and to share the idea. We had a great conversation and even discovered our common love and passion for China. Taking a portrait is teamwork, and the moment when Kristine Braden and Yvonne Chan walked into my studio I felt all the essential elements were present. Reciprocal respect, openness, commitment. I knew I’ve got two very good team-players to make it happen. This is not always the case, taking a good portrait is such a fine balance on letting it go, influencing, guiding or interfering.

It was a one-hour portrait session (but think about how much it means to have one hour from such a person). I would like to sit on a couch and talk with her about the world, the unusual political situation, impact and consequences of digitization, or even block-chain because this is an interesting moment we are living in. The reality is we discovered we are both sailing enthusiasts, but soon afterwards we had to start shooting – time is always short. One hour seems long, but it was just right for what we had to do.
The latest Sphere Magazine was published a few days ago and I simply love these photos of Kristine Braden, a smart and attractive business woman.
I had the pleasure to photograph portraits of several personalities in the past years, every single time was an unique moment. I feel so privileged to have these opportunities to work with such great people.
After the shooting, Kristine sent me a message, “It was a blast shooting with you.” And yes, this message made my day even better.

Thank you Kristine, and thank you Yvonne. Thank you for making and being part of this magic moment.

Portrait Session in China

Swing_China_20153239-2

 Portraits Aufnahmen sind jedesmal eine Entdeckungsreise, speziell wenn man dafür noch in den Flieger steigt und einige Stunden richtig Zeit hat und sich Gedanken über die Person zu machen.
Xie Shiyong ist eine junge Aufstrebende Managerin im Chinesischen “Sillikon Valley” Shenzhen. Was ist das für eine junge Frau die selbstbewusst ein Fotograf aus Europa bucht um Bilder von Ihr zu machen dachte ich mir?
Nach einigen Stunden im Flieger, Zollkontrolle und einer kurzen Nacht ging es am anderen Tag in ein Fotostudio in Shenzhen. Traf sie wie meistens üblich in dieser 13 Mio. Grossstadt in einem nahe gelegenen Shoppingcenter. In Shenzhen Downtown gibt ja fast nur noch Büros, Wohnungen bzw. Wolkenkratzer und eben Shoppingcenters.
In den letzten drei Jahren habe ich gelernt, dass Chinesische Frauen sehr sensible sind wenn es um ihre Portraits Aufnahmen geht. Das Wort Nein existiert nicht, höchstens ein zurückhaltendes “maybe” was meistens genau “Nein” bedeutet und trotzdem verhandelt diese Junge Dame grosse Verträge für ein bekanntes Amerikanisches Internetunternehmen in China.
Der Nachmittag mit Xie im Studio werde ich nicht so schnell vergessen, am Anfang war sie recht zurückhaltend. Nach ein paar Aufnahmen stand sie im Profil vor der Kamera und als sie den Kopf noch hinten senkte wusste ich, dass dieses Shooting ein Erfolg wird.

Vor ein paar Tagen bekam ich via WeChat ein schönes Feedback.

Before this shooting, I felt nervous and not that confident, but after I saw your photos, I really feel like I’m a strong woman through your camera

A day trip to Paris

Bruno_Trouble_2015_flat_web_v

The reason for this day trip to Paris was Bruno Troublé the mastermind of the Louis Vuitton Cup,  a very charismatic personality in the international sailing world.

He did spend part of his life organizing sailing events, negotiating contracts, and sailing on many different boats.

Some years ago when I landed the first time in Auckland I saw the advertisement from Louis Vuitton
“To sail in the Americas’ Cup you first have to win the Louis Vuitton Cup” a clear and strong message.

I still remember the days as a young Laser sailor training on the lake Lugano spending every few years the nights in front of the TV watching the Louis Vuitton Cup, followed then by the America’s Cup.
At that time it seemed a world so far away.

After years of yachting photography and dreaming about presenting my images on a IMAX screen suddnetly you get this magic phone call.

The Swiss National Museum of transportaion, (by fare the largest and most visited museum in Switzerland) was planning a special exibition about sailing and this is the museum with largest IMAX screen in Switzerland.

The selection of the photos turned out to be a challenge, you wnat as many as you can, covering different subject and following a story.

The editing of the video ws done by James McIntyre love the work he does.
