Switzerland Photography Workshop Results | Bob & Dawn Davis


Switzerland photographers................ whew! A tough crowd, but one I feel in love with. Bob and I taught a 2 day workshop in Zurich, Switzerland in March to an amazing group of photographers. I think we had about 38 attendees. Things are very different in Switzerland than they are here in the States. Things like First Looks, Engagement Sessions, and Mess The Dress sessions aren't really considered there. Networking isn't really big there either. As we all know here, networking with other photographers is huge! Our friend, Daniel Zihlmann is a photographer in Switzerland and he's breaking all the rules. He's created a group called The Wedding Crashers and once a month they all get together to network. They encourage each other and they are bringing a different spin to wedding photography. It's pretty amazing. It reminds me of what's been happening in the States since things like David Jay's forum Open Source Photo began. I love it! And I think the photographers from Switzerland are all going to make some huge changes there over the next year! It's pretty exciting!

A big thank you to Paul Merki from Light+Byte. He brought us over to teach this workshop and we are so humbled by that. I was really awesome meeting you Paul. Thank you for making this workshop possible!

Here's some fun shots Bob created. You can also see some great images on Facebook from some of the attendees that I could find... Daniel Zihlmann, Colette Anderes, Daniel Knecht, Thomas Wuscher, Jeanine Linder, Felix Oberhaensli, Simon Lutolf, Claire Morgan, Nadia Talamona, Daniel D├Ąppen.

Thank you to Daniela Aregger and Mike Leuenberger for modeling for us during the workshop! You're both so beautiful....!!!!!

I will be blogging about the rest of our amazing trip soon too!!! Stay tuned...!!! Here's a sneak peak at Anton Lorimer's blog post about our trip. The Lorimer family ROCKS!!!

Our Trip To Switzerland


Our trip to Switzerland started off pretty rough due to a pretty bad car accident within our first 6 hours of being there. Miraculously, none of us were seriously hurt. Bumps and bruises and a little whiplash, nothing to complain about. God was really watching over us big time. Someone said to me... "It's hard to believe you think God was watching over you when this accident happened. Don't you think if He was really watching over you this accident wouldn't have happened at all." It was a legitimate comment but I don't think that at all.


Have you ever seen this comic strip before? A friend sent this to me awhile ago (I don't know who the artist is, but he/she is brilliant), this comic strip changed my life that day. I realized that no matter what happens, it could always be worse.


This was our car. We were 2 blocks away from our hotel. We were a little lost, Zurich is not the easiest place on earth to drive. The accident happened, Bob and I and our 2 kids were all hanging upside down by our seat belts. The kids were screaming. It was like a bad dream!

I don't know what possesed me to even take this photo. I was on my way to the ambulance as our son was being taken to the hospital. We were all in shock. This is the only photo we have of our rental car. What I can tell you is that God was there. It was like He put the palm of His hand under the car when it flipped over. It could have been so much worse. We received hundreds of emails, Facebook and Twitter prayers.......... THANK YOU! They were all heard and we are forever grateful...!

Much love to you all......

~ Dawn, Bob, Bobby and Alli
