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!
