The photographs of Swiss based photographer Dominik Orth (born 1978) are versatile and compelling. His images tell stories of countries and their souls; of nature and its secrets, of people and their lives. Sometimes they touch and go straight to the heart, sometimes they awaken a dormant longing. However, it is Dominik’s aesthetic and artistic expectation that characterize his work. His pictures are full of atmosphere and stand out through intense color tones and uncluttered compositions. What matters most in his work is that each picture can stand on its own, with its own story and emotions.
For more than 10 years he is exploring destinations near and far with his camera and has shaped his own style. Each of his pictures are the result of the initial confrontation and his personal connection with a place, its inhabitants and its nature. Dominik honed his skills in capturing the cultural characteristics of individual countries and the beauty of its people and its surrounding environment. His driving forces are his curiosity for the unfamiliar, the unknown that excites him and his deep fascination of discovering new countries.
Dominik Orth holds a Master’s degree in psychology and business administration from the University of Zurich. His professional yet down-to-earth personality, his strong networking skills and his passion for photography, have made him valuable contacts all over the world and make of him a very pleasant and flexible photographer easy to collaborate with.
His work in the fields of reportage, landscape and portraits includes domestic and international clients such as DKSH, Unicef, Nikon, Louis Vuitton, Credit Suisse and Chivas Regal. Recently he is the official photographer of The Swiss Air-Ambulance «Rega».
His pictures have been published in renowned national and international newspapers, magazines and Annual Reports of multinational organizations. Furthermore, his photographs have been on display in several exhibitions in Switzerland and Germany and are sold to both, private and institutional collectors.
