Interview: Photographer Alex Annen (Switzerland)


Can you tell us a little about you?

I have 35 years old, live in Switzerland. I’m a commercial and portrait photographer, working both from studio and exterior.


How and when did you get into photography?

As I often say, I discover photography with live music photography and learn to love it with portrait photography. I began 5 years ago.

What does photography mean to you?

Everything. Without it I wouldn't have discovered that I can be creative. I discovered another way to live and be whole.


Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

Location photography is something amazing. Create atmosphere and highlights people is important for me.


Where do you get inspiration from?

In book, movies, video music and in the world in general.

Do you think in advance what you want in the picture?

Most of the time, yes. I left a place for improvisation but i prefer to plannify what I wanna do.


Studio, on location or both?

Both !


Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

Paid Professional


What has been your most memorable session and why?

I had to create a shoot for a designer dress. For this session, I do 1000km to go in a special place in France. It’s memorable because that was my very first big project with my best friend as model, my wife as MUA. And “fun” fact, 3 days before this shoot all of my camera gear has been stolen. I had to find a replacement material to not throw all this organisation to trash.


Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

Canon from the beginning and my fav lense is the 50mm f/1.2, on my R5 actually.


What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?

Make Mistakes. A LOT. I learned a lot of things from my mistake and without it I would not be the photographer that I am today, and I have a lot to learn.


What do you think of our new magazine?

It’s really good to have platform who promote work from all over the world. Thanks for all your work !
