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.

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.
