Foodelia International Food Photography Awards

Most of the time, I cook the dishes for my food photography myself. This was my first failed attempt at a chocolate cake for a cookery book project. The cake was made from only three ingredients, egg whites, sugar and chocolate. I should have left it to cool for longer, but I was so desperate to taste it that I took it out of the tin too soon with the unfortunate result that my amazing creation sank in the middle.

I tried to save what could be saved and cut a tiny slice of the cake which I put on a small plate and decorated with some berries. With the right angle and a good lens I was able to balance the size. A diffuse light source and some patience for the final composition did the rest. To my surprise, I won an international food photography award for my work, which was a great honour. I have to add that the cake tasted pretty good!

An award is always something special. To enter the annual Association of Swiss Photographers contest, the first thing you need is a really good idea. You then need to realize this idea perfectly in both a technical and artistic sense. The standard is always so high that any of the top 40 entries could win, but I was lucky enough to take first place in 2020. In addition, I featured in an article by the journalist Haymo Empl for Zuger Zeitung when I won the award.

Premium Imaging – GraphicArt

When Urs Ziswiler from Graphicart Zurich called and asked if he could send somebody to interview me, I agreed without really thinking. For years, Graphicart has been the most professional, trustworthy and helpful photographic equipment supplier in the business. I felt a bit undeserving of being added to the circle of outstanding and well-known photographers who are regularly featured in the „Premium Imaging Magazine“. However, it was an amazing article which I was thrilled to be a part of.
