Bruno Bisang was born in 1952 and spent much of his youth in Ascona, a picturesque little town in the Italian speaking part of Switzerland.
When he was 19 he attended the School of Applied Arts for Photography in Zurich, wich was followed by a photographic apprenticeship.
Since 1979 Bruno Bisang has worked as a freelance photographer, first in Zurich, and then for a time in Milan and Munich.
Now he works between Milan, New York, Zurich and Paris for a renowned clientele.
Erik Almas, originally from Norway has made San Francisco his home. He is shooting constantly, traveling around the world for clients such as Toyota, Puma, Nike, Hyatt, USPS, Citibank and Amtrak.
Erik’s sensibility is down-to-earth, he loves what he does and on top of that is a most talented compositor in creating memorable advertising images for his clients. When Erik has his feet on the ground, he enjoys contributing to 7×7 & Genlux Magazine, shooting fashion stories with a passion for art and beauty.
Andric’s style is exceptionally clean, intriguingly hyper-realistic and always a combination of effortless visual simplicity and refined mood. His portfolio spans from still life to landscape, from portraiture to highly complex conceptual work, CGI and visual consulting. His imagery is often infused with understated humour, but always elegant and iconic. “A good image should always leave some questions unanswered, remaining interesting in a new way every time we see it,” he says.
With an obsessive attention to detail, Andric has been doing nearly all of his own post-production work since 1997. Although he uses CGI routinely, he believes that shooting as much as possible from real life is the key to creating compelling photography since even the most “impossible” image must be anchored in reality for it’s strength. He reserves the post-production phase for enhancing, modulating or creating atmosphere: the resulting imagery is always effortless.
Miles Aldridge is a British fashion photographer.
Best known for his cinematic images of women, Aldridge’s work is often brightly lit by fluorescent colors and depicts a world that is at once glamorous and surreal. He aggressively confronts themes of religion, popular culture, and 1950s Americana through his signature brand of moody imagery and dark humor.
Born in 1964 in London, England to famed album-cover graphic designer Alan Aldrige, he grew up surrounded by celebrities like John Lennon and Eric Clapton, fostering an early interest in pop culture and art. After studying illustration at the Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design, Aldridge worked as a music video director, and in 1993, turned to fashion photography.
His work has since appeared in many publications, including W magazine, Vogue, The New York Times, Harper’s Bazaae, and The New Yorker. His photographs are also held in numerous permanent collections including the National Portrait Gallery in London, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the International Center of Photography in New York.
Nicolas Bets arrives in Paris from his native Belgium at 17, to become, like his mother, a photographer. He graduated after only one year in photography school.
During seven years, he attends to great names in the profession, such as Claus Wichrath and Jean-Daniel Lorieux.
On its best playing field, combining delusion and rigor, the aesthetics and sense of detail are pushed to the extreme. Between the harmony of colors, the sets, and the expressive power of the characters (sometimes numerous) he puts on stage, Nicolas Bets signs a recognizable and unique brand of his kind.
Known for his memorable cinematic images, Peter Lindbergh is recognised as one of the most influential contemporary photographers. Born in Lissa (Germany) in 1944, he spent his childhood in Duisburg (North Rhine-Westphalia).
He worked as a window dresser for a local department store and enrolled the Berlin Academy of Fine Arts in the early 1960’s. He remembers these years: “I preferred actively seeking out van Gogh’s inspirations, my idol, rather than painting the mandatory portraits and landscapes taught in Art schools…”.
