Photoshoot Opera Singer Operahaus Zurich

Early July I did a photoshoot with a very talented opera singer in the neighbourhood of the Operahaus in Zurich. The weather was with us and showed Zurich (and the singer) at their best.

Photoshoot Dutch Painter Iris Duchateau

A couple of weeks ago I did an impromptu photoshoot with Dutch painter Iris Duchateau when we met each other in Normandy (France). Iris was originally a violin player who took up painting later in her career. I absolutely love her work – check it out on www.irisduchateau.nl.

Troop 625 Boyscouts of America Zug

I was asked to shoot the formal Group Portrait of Troop 625 of the Boyscouts of America in Zug (Switzerland). A great troop with great leaders!

Smoking kills … but man, doesn’t it sometimes look cool!

Earlier this week I was doing a photoshoot in Zurich and got talking to someone who was very interested in what I was doing.

In the course of our conversation I asked him if he would be ok if I took a picture of him. He happily obliged and wanted to put out his cigarette. I asked him to keep smoking though, because I always wanted to replicate the fantastic black & white pictures of James Dean and Steve McQueen whilst they were smoking.

I hope you like the result. Let me know!

Portrait La Lupa

La Lupa-1

Whilst I was doing a photoshoot around Bellevue in Zurich, I more or less literally bumped into La Lupa, a well-known Swiss singer and performer. She was immediately willing to pose for me for a portrait. Check her out! Her website is http://www.la-lupa.ch.
