Carnival Craziness

Carnival (Fasnacht) has just finished again for another year in Central Switzerland and I am still finding confetti in the buggy, the flat and my camera bag! Carnival is a great opportunity to take candid shots of people, as “Guggenmusik” players and even individuals not in music bands go to a lot of trouble for just one week of the year. There are balls on every weekend from January onwards and then it all culminates in the week just before Lent when everyone goes out onto the streets to hear the music bands every evening and there are parades and local events in most villages.

I teamed up with a local children’s and maternity boutique called “Pumpels” (www.pumpels.ch) in Zug and took photographs of children being made up for carnival. All their families were entered into a prize draw with the winners getting a complimentary family shoot with me in the spring. All those who entered won a half-price voucher to use towards a family shoot so everyone was a winner!

… und schon wieder ist Fasnacht in der Zentralschweiz vorbei und überall finde ich noch Konfetti im Kinderwagen, in der Wohnung und in der Fotoapparat-Tasche! Ich fotografiere immer gerne am Fasnacht und war selber mal 5 Jahre lang in einer Guggenmusik im Kanton Nidwalden!

Ich habe auch Kinder beim Schminken im einem Kinder-und Umgangsmodeladen in Zug (www.pumpels.ch) fotografiert. Jeder Teilnehmer hatte die Möglichkeit, eine Foto-Shooting mit mir in der Frühling zu gewinnen und alle haben einen 50%-Gutschein für eine Foto-Shooting erhalten.
