Tobias Schuermann

Toby, born in 1968 in a small village in Switzerland, is the youngest of four children.

From an early age, travel has been his main passion and the places, colors and cultures that surrounded him motivated him to buy his first camera, a Pentax A3 in 1985. From that moment on his life changed, as he was able to capture these magical moments and rather than just having them as memories he was able to share them with others.

At the age of 27, Toby left Switzerland and moved to Japan and then Taiwan, where he remained for several years whilst learning about the culture and how to speak the language. In 1999, Toby moved to the Hawaiian Islands where he fell in love with this unique paradise. It was here that he worked as a helicopter pilot instructor and tour pilot for thirteen years, giving him not only a bird’s eye view of the magical surroundings but also the ability to experience and see places only a few lucky people had ever been.

During these years, Toby spent time with some of the best photographers and film crews from the likes of National Geographic to Sports Illustrated, which assisted him to perfect the art of capturing the most inspiring images.
