I'm a professional photographer and instructor, originally from Switzerland, now running my own photo studio on the Gold Coast in Australia. In the past, I made a living as professional musician (singer in musicals and rock bands), however over the years my love for photography won the battle between "in front - or - behind the camera". My main focus is people photography, large or small, laughing or sulking, jumping running or posing. My clients range from advertising agencies, magazines and newspapers to fashion designers, models, bands and private customers. Prints of a selected range of my image are available at: http://swissphoto.smugmug.com/

The Eagle & The Beauty Dish

Published February 25th, 2012

For a band shoot, we had an EAGLE in the studio, and what a majestic creature it was.

As soon as the trainer took the eagles hood off, the eagle scanned the studio, checking out all the light stands, softboxes and other stuff, and with 2 flaps of her massive wings, she was up on my boom stand, sitting next to my Profoto Beauty Dish! Another look around, then she took off for a short flight through my studio, and landed - you guessed it - right on the beauty dish.

This bird obviously knows her gear, and only the best is good enough!
