Favourite images of 2011

It’s hard to believe its 2012 already and I have been reflecting on what a year 2011 was for me and my business.

I photographed many more corporate and charitable events as well as corporate portraits too – this included shooting at the Theater Casino in Zug several times, the Park Hotel in Zug, the Hallenstadion, the Mövenpick and Widder Hotels in Zurich as well as the prestigious Zunfthaus zur Meisen.

I was asked to photograph different things which stretched me as a photographer too-I photographed at Zurich Fashion Days on the red carpet and catwalk which was a lot of fun. I also photographed a group of 65 employees standing on a ladder on a balcony at KKL (they were below in the forecourt…)

I also now lead a photography group of women from the International Women’s Club of Zug and it has helped me to learn more about photography by teaching them. I set up onsite studios at three events in Zug this year and photographed couples at gala events and families with Santa.  I also teamed up with photographer Ron Sumners and we continue to work on projects together and are sharing a bigger studio space as of January too.

I have continued to photograph even more families this year particularly from September onwards and the studio has become particularly popular with younger families especially when the fog descended as it tends to for a part of the year in Zug…

2012 will be a year for streamlining my systems, getting support but on the other hand continuing to hone my style and develop as an artist.

So this just leaves me to say a huge thank you to my clients, suppliers, friends and family who have supported me throughout 2011 – see you in 2012!!  Here is part 1 of my review – these are from several outdoor family shoots which I have decided to concentrate on this post and showcase – part 2 will be families in the studio – enjoy!

My first shoot of the year in the first few days of January was to capture this family with Grandad visiting from the US.  Shoot location:  Zug by the lake (and it was cold…)

This shoot started at the couple’s home in Wädenswil and then we continued outdoors – also on a very cold day in January!

This very lively 18 month old was visiting her grandmother in Zug – I used some of my very rusty Russian on this shoot as she lives in Moscow …

This shoot with Tala took place in a small park in Zurich with several clothing changes – I have become quite good at spotting large shady trees to use as dressing rooms…

This little boy was a joy to photograph and his parents has just bought a basket which was the perfect fit for him…

We had to seize the day for this family as the two older children are away studying in the US and were only back for a short time in the summer.  Location: Villette in Cham

My first twins shoot of the year (and several were to follow) – there were lollipops and matching dresses… location: Villette in Cham

Another family shoot at the ever-popular Villette in Cham – the challenge for me as a photographer is to choose different locations there to make the images look different for each family.  This time we had bubbles in the fields…

When I came to photograph this baby at home in Wädenswil, I also delivered a canvas from the family’s pregnancy shoot earlier in January.
