Träume immer noch vom Reisen

Bleiben wir noch ein wenig in Asien, inzwischen hat sich das Jahr in China geändert. Wir befinden uns jetzt im Jahr des Ochsen. Leider habe ich kein Bild von einem Ochsen aus China, aber ein gutes Bild von einem Jack in Tibet.
Die Geschichte ist ein bisschen lang, ich musste/durfte viel über die Jacks lernen, bis ich endlich ein solches Bild machen konnte.

Tibet: Jack heard leader Photo ©JUERGKAUFMANN.COM All rights reserved

Unsere tibetischen Freunde meinten einfach, du riechst wie ein Tourist, trink jeden Tag eine Tasse Jack-Buttertee und du wirst das ohne Gefar überleben, den die Herdenführer sind eine Mischung aus wilden Jacks und zame Jacks und diese sind agressiver als unsere Rinder. Für einen Touristen wie mich ist das nicht gerade ein Vergnügen, aber es hat funktioniert “in der zweiten Woche..”.

Vielleicht denkt jetzt jemand, warum schreibt er über Tibet und bringt es mit dem chinesischen Neujahr in Verbindung. Das könnte eine abendfüllende Diskussion werden.

Hoffe wir können bald wieder Events organisren, Tiber mit den Bilder gibt einen schönen Abend.

3’500 km durch Tibet hinterlassen einige wertvolle Erfahrungen, auch solche, die man hier in den Medien nicht liest.

English Version

Still dreaming of travel

Let’s stay a little bit in Asia, meanwhile the year has changed in China. We are now in the year of the ox. Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of an ox from China, but I have a good picture of a Jack in Tibet.
The story is a little bit long, I had to/ had to learn a lot about the Jacks until I finally could take such a picture.

Our Tibetan friends simply said, you smell like a tourist, drink a cup of Jack butter tea every day and you will survive this without Gefar, because the herd leaders are a mixture of wild Jacks and zame Jacks and these are more aggressive than our cattle. For a tourist like me this is not exactly a pleasure, but it worked “the second week…”.

Now maybe someone is thinking why is he writing about Tibet and associating it with Chinese New Year. This could be a full-length discussion.

Hope we can organize events again soon, Tiber with the pictures gives a nice evening.

3’500 km through Tibet leave some valuable experiences, even those that you do not read here in the media.

Vermisse die Reisen

Es ist Sonntagmorgen und es regnet, nicht der gewünschte Sonntag für einen Vielreisenden, der jetzt zu Hause im Grau sitzt.

Ich vermisse das Reisen, gestern hat mich das Fernweh wie so ziemlich einmal pro Woche gepackt und ich träumte eine Zeit lang von meinen Reisen / Fotoprojekten in Asien.

In den letzten Jahren durfte ich China ein wenig kennenlernen, dank einiger spannender Projekte mit chinesischen Firmen und sehr guten Freunden in China selbst. China ein wenig heisst 10 Jahre, aber da das Land so unvorstellbar gross und vielfältig ist, passt “ein wenig” genau.

War gerade im Kaficarl in Küsnacht, um meinen sonntäglichen Take Away Cappucino zu holen.

Scheinbar bin ich nicht der einzige, der das Reisen vermisst, deshalb zeige ich Ihnen einige Bilder von einer meinen vielen Asienreisen.

Fangen wir an mit Hongkong, es wäre schön, wenn Sie von nun an öfters hierher kommen würden. Nehme Sie weiter auch mit nach Sanya, eine Insel im Südchinesischen Meer, ein Paradies so schön wie die karibischen Inseln. Ich zeige und erzähle Ihnen auch von den 2’000 km quer durch Tibet. Burma Myanmar, Singapur, Laos, wird werden sehen wie weit wir gehen.

Mehr Informationen zu diesem Bild

Wann immer es ging versuchte ich in Kowloon zu übernachten im Eaton Hotel.

Mitten drin im alten Hong Kong in der Nähe gibt es ein Tempel und der berümte Fischmark von Mong Kok.

Der erste morgen in Hong Kong fange ich immer sehr früh an ca. 5 Uhr, der Jetlag hilft sehr. Um diee Zeit fängt da auch das leben an und man hat die Chance die echten Hong Kong’er zu beobachten.

Nach ein paar Aufnahmen gab es jedes mal Morning Tea und frische Dim Sum.

Ein anderes Highlight am Morgen früh ist der Chai Tee vom Pakistaner im Quartier, leider habe ich aber kein Bild davon….schade.

Big Waves in Nazaré

Nun bin ich zurück in Zürich, die paar Tage in Nazaré waren sehr Eindrücklich. Die Wucht und Kraft dieser grossen Wellen überrascht mich jedesmal, genau diese rohe Naturgewalt zeigt uns wie klein und verletzlich wir Meschen eigentlich sind.

Im Momenet habe ich ein paar Bilder auf den Social Media Paltformen gezeigt, es wir aber noch ein paar Tage dauern um eine richtig starke Auswahl dieser Bilder zu treffen.
Wie sehr oft reise ich an ein Shooting und jedesmal gibt es eindrückliche Bilder. Je nach Betrachtung finde ich meine Favoriten und jedsmal gibt es ein paar Bilder welche herausstechen und mich überraschen.

Als Segler weiss ich wie gross die Möwen am Atlantik sind, richtig grosse Vögel, und trotzdem wirkt diese Möwe auf dem Bild klein und verletzlich.

Noch ein Punkt dazu: wir Menschen lernen mit der Natur umzugehen, die Big Wave surfer beherrschen das und sind richtige Stars geworden, aber keiner fliget einfach so über die explodierenden Wellen wie die Möwen.

Big Waves Project

Big waves have many similarities with my other outdoor project glaciers.today, the unleashed natural forces are simply fascinating.
The glaciers move slowly but unstoppable trough the valleys and the waves roll over the water and we have no chance to stop or alter their course in any way.

Both natural forces are a strong source of inspiration and show me every day the vulnerability of the balance of our natural habitat. The glaciers are melting more and more with the climate change and the storms are are getting more frequent.

In the next days I’m traveling back to Nazaré the home of big waves. A new and strong storm system is approaching the Atlantic coast, this system will last for 3-4 days. I’m really looking forward to see and photograph this natural forces.

#mademyday

Every few days a good photo, no junk food.

We look at hundreds of photos every day. Within a split second, we decide if we like it and then we are off to the next task or thought.

Rio de Janeiro Brasil, Corcovado Sunrise from the Corcovado

Photos became junk food, but what really matters is the slow-food, the one we enjoy and try to get feel all the flavors. Maybe also understand what was the cook thinking when he composed the menu, what inspired him. 

I will try to choose every few days a photo and publish it in my linked in account with the tag #mademyday. It can be a photo which I like just because it makes me happy, it can also be a photo which make me think or just a photo to talk about an good story.

Good story, yes there is a story behind the Sunrise over the Guanabara bay in Rio. Took this photo in 2015 right after the Olympic test event.

We tried for months to get the permission to shoot the sunrise from the Corcovado. It looked like a mission impossible. Below the Corcovado is a big favela and as a gringo like me you don’t even think to go up there alone by yourselves as you would do in the Swiss mountains. Way to dangerous.

Shortly before I was about to flying back home I met a group of managers involved with the organization of the Rio 2016 Olympic games. And guess what, a few phone calls and I could choose the day when to go up there.

A entire well armed escort team drove me up there. They picked me up at 4am in the morning in front of the apartment I rented in Gloria an area in Rio de Janeiro.

At 7:30am when the city started to wake up again we where all back in Gloria having a coffee in one of the bars in Rio de Janeiro. The guest where looking a bit strange. What is this gringo/foreigner doing with armed police officers in a bar so early. They had no idea what we saw that morning.

This photo for sure #mademyday, enjoy it, I hope it also makes your day.

The photo part of the Illuminati series, together with images from Hong Kong, Manhattan, Mounth Kailash in Tibet and a few more.

Black Beauty and Velvet Light

The Custom bike came fresh, clean from Harley Heaven Zurich. One of a kind bike, each element is carefully chosen and assembled with a unique handcraft.

For months I was searching and testing a new light, a soft light endless nights in the studio until the light turned out to be soft enough to reflect so smoothly on a shiny surface like a mat surface.

Harely Nr 2 Test 25-Edit

The goal was to shoot the entire bike with this soft light. The tank turned out fantastic, same for the rest of the dark details, just the chromatic parts of the motor didn’t want to appear matt. After a few nights more even the shiny motor parts received this velvet look with the new soft light.

You just need to be in the right place at the right moment

Nazare Portugal Atlantic Ocean Waves
Nazare Portugal Atlantic Ocean Waves, November 2018

You just need to be in the right place at the right moment.

Some time ago during a meeting with an agency, we talked about photos of big waves and how to produce them. With CGI, “computer generates image” you can create one within a week or two, assuming that you find the right team capable of doing it.

Shooting this kind of waves turned out a bit more complicated. I heard about Nazaré a peaceful, quiet fishing village on the Atlantic coast of Portugal. They have big waves, actually famous for it. Since that day started to follow the weather, tide and wave forecast of Nazaré.
In the winter time you get almost every week 5-7 meter high waves, but very seldom you get 20 meters or move waves. It took me nearly 2 years to get the chance for such a wave.

There is a detail in this photo, who at first sight doesn’t look so obvious.
Look at the spray over the wave. It’s a perfect Fibonacci curve. The natural beauty defined by the mathematical formula which also has a lot in common with the golden ratio.

Here is the tricky question. What does it take to get this spray and big waves?
The wind must come from the opposite side of the wave. 90% of the time the wind pushes the water for miles on the open sea and when the wave comes closer to shore the build up. That’s the difference. The wind is coming from the opposite side.

When I saw that fact in the weather forecast, I knew its time to book the flight to Lissabon and a rental car which brings me to Nazaré. It took two years from that meeting in the agency until the day I booked the trip.

The evening when I finally got to Nazaré in complete darkness I drove down to the lighthouse, no moon no light. Whatever scary movie you imagine, there is nothing so impressive as the rumbling of the waves against the cliffs right below the Nazare Lighthouse.

The next morning with the first light I was back on these rocks, this time with my camera and a full set of lenses.

Please let me say this, as I heard that so many times:
You just need to be in the right place at the right moment.
Think about what it takes to be at the right place and the right moment?

The next morning during breakfast in the hotel, the lady serving the coffee looked at me and said; you got the right day, today the waves are not big anymore.

It’s over a year ago and I still checking every week the forecast of Nazaré, hoping to get one more chance to shoot this kind of big waves.

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.

RUND UM mit einem Sonnenuntergang

Letztes Jahr war die Rundum kurz vor dem America’s Cup in Bermuda, eigentlich bin ich wegen der Rudum ein paar Tage zu späht nach Bermuda gereist. Der Sonnenuntergang in der Region Überlingen hat es aber voll kompensiert.

Nun war ich wir wieder auf dem Bodensee. Die Wettervorhersage war nicht ideal. Wenn man den Himmel betrachtet war klar das da noch ein Gewitter kommen wird und genau das sorgt für das gewisse etwas. Die Sonne verschwand ein paar Mal hinter den Wolkenschichten, und so wechselte das Licht fast alle 5 Minuten. Leider waren die Zeitfenster für eindrucksvolle Aufnahmen somit etwas kürzer als sonst.

Es ist immmer wieder aufs neue Eindrucksvoll die Natur zu beobachten, sie ist immer anders und überascht uns immer wider aufs neue.
Mit einem Click auf die Bilder gelangen sie zu weiteren Aufnahmen.


Seit einigen Jahren träume ich davon ein paar Monate lang auf und rund um den Bodensee ununterbrochen während mehreren Monate den See und die Umgebung zu fotografieren, und danach ein Buch zu Publizieren mit diesen Aufnahmen. Währe schön wenn sich das mal realisieren lässt.

Reflections Act 2

Blu26 Schweizermeisterschaft 2018 Zug

I’ve been looking at the reflection on the water for quite a few years, and as more I think about them, they become more interesting for me – the reflections are abstract and provide a wide space for imagination. I find something new in it every time when looking at the photos.

Last weekend I was photographing the Blu26 regatta in Switzerland on a lake which is known for not being the windiest place on earth, and yes, we had flat water for three days (sigh).

Time to be creative with the reflections, what do you see in them?

These and more images are now available as Fine Art Prints. Click here or on one of the photos to see the complete selection.

Bilbao Guggenheim Museum in the morning light

Sapin Bilboa March 1st 2018. Guggenheim Museum Bilbao

Spain Bilbao March 2018 Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in the morning light
Designed by American architect Frank Gehry, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao building represents a magnificent example of the most groundbreaking 20th-century architecture. With 24,000 m2, of which 11,000 are dedicated to exhibition space, the Museum represents an architectural landmark of audacious configuration and innovating design, providing a seductive backdrop for the art exhibited in it.

One of the most admired works of contemporary architecture, the building has been hailed as a “signal moment in the architectural culture”, because it represents “one of those rare moments when critics, academics, and the general public were all completely united about something. The museum was the building most frequently named as one of the most important works completed since 1980 in the 2010 World Architecture Survey among architecture experts.

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.

High Resolution Panorama from Hong Kong Skyline for the New Year

cropped-tumblr_inline_o0itj3wdcp1qcd3or_540.jpg

Happy New Year !

A few years ago this would have been a high budget almost impossible shooting producing a photo which can be printed with all details visible even on a size of 10m wide.

The base is a Nikon D810e the resolution of 36 megapixel and a great dynamic range capturing bright and dark areas in never seen quality for DSLR cameras. 10 perfectly captured photos stitched together give this panorama image resulting in a photo with 264 megapixel.

Detail view….

Not that we want to see what’s happeing inside the appartments of Hong Kongs citizens but we could if we keep zooming.

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.

Up in the sky

77 Bombay Street, “Up in the sky” this is one of the songs which I will always keep in mind for the 2013 summer, same for the shooting of last week.
At the heliport near Saint-Tropez after the normal preparation for an aerial shooting such as removing the seats, fixing the harness etc. we took off, the legs out in the fresh air under the rotor and Gilles sitting next to me, he is just back from the cup in San Francisco. A quick photo from us to document this moment and we are already high up over the bay from Saint-Tropez. The bay is almost white so many boats are out there. We are heading to the “other side” the beaches area with the legendary Club 55 the race course of Wally’s and the J Class yachts. My legs are a bit freezing and I’m going again trough my camera settings again, once we are on the spot all goes very fast.

Below my feet’s I can see the beach and the clubs and here are the big boats. From up here they look like normal sailing boats, a main sail a Jib and Spinnaker noting special but when you see the size of the crew you get a feeling how big this boats are.
Every time I’m up in the air I feel this freedom to move around fast, you talk to the pilot with the headset and you just go. I also feel a pressure you want..no you must do great shots now..the airtime is quite expensive. We look each other and smile it’s an great moment..the light is perfect the waves are there:  “la vertical la”  we say to the pilot via the headset and we are right on the top of a big wally yacht as they are dropping their massive spinnaker. I start to make on amazing photo after the other, it’s like being in a flow, you cant stop it it just comes, we move to the next boat, I even don’t feel .the cold air on my legs….and here is the song, “up in the sky you are just fine” ….enjoy the photos.
