Swiss Alps — An Autumn Trip

Larchs in Samnaun 1

Last week, it was the right time to go for a trip to the Swiss Alps. The weather for pho­tog­ra­phy was gor­geous. Lots of dra­matic light changes, fog and beau­ti­ful clouds, illu­mi­nat­ing the fall col­ors in incred­i­ble ways. Espe­cially the larchs (Lärchen) showed their most beau­ti­ful reds, oranges and yel­lows. Here some impres­sions of this trip for you to enjoy! Con­tinue read­ing

Sound to the Faces

Enjoy the per­for­mances of the  bril­liant singers Elissa Huber, Estelle Poscio,  Sascha Kramer and Omer Kobil­jak with the pianist Jens Fuhr. Both sopra­nos are stu­dents of Jane Menge­doht Thorner and David Thorner. The video­clips are from the final per­for­mance of the 37th Sum­mer Acad­emy in Lenk, Switzer­land. Con­tinue read­ing

Singer’s Face

Sascha KramerLast week, I had the priv­i­lege to take pho­tos at the Singer’s Mas­ter­class of Jane and David Thorner at the Inter­na­tional Sum­mer Acad­emy in Lenk, Switzer­land. Eleven young pro­fes­sional singers, guided by these two incred­i­bly inven­tive, kind and bril­lant teach­ers! These faces show every­thing: total­ity, pres­ence, pas­sion, alive­ness, joy and love for music and singing. Con­tinue read­ing

Unnamed Beauty

Unnamed-2When I’m out with a cam­era it hap­pens some­times that some­body looks at me and then looks in the direc­tion I’m aim­ing. Then comes the ques­tion: “What are you pho­tograph­ing?” — In a joke­ful mood, I will tell the story of an invis­i­ble object, a rare bird or what­ever comes to my mind. But most of the time all I can say is: “Beauty!”. Con­tinue read­ing


Bättligorn from RiederalpA cou­ple of days ago, while on a trip to the Wal­lis Alps, my web­sites have been hacked. — For­tu­nately, I had good back­ups, so every­thing is online again.
To cel­e­brate the recov­ery,  I’m gonna show­case a mixed array from my last Swiss pics: a “Best-Of-The-Last-Week” kinda thing. — Above the Bät­tighorn seen from Rieder­alp Con­tinue read­ing
