A very relaxed photo shoot in and around Interlaken on the 13th July, 2017. The couple are from Houston, Texas, visiting the Berner Oberland for the first time.

Mike contacted me earlier in the month about his surprise wedding proposal. He wanted to propose to his girlfriend Kate on the Harder Kulm, overlooking Interlaken.

There are plenty of locations in and around Mürren, Switzerland. But it seems the mountain village does not come alive until the middle of June. I visited at the beginning of May and there was still snow on the ground. It was very icy in places and I slipped over twice. The place was like…

A visitor to the Harder Kulm rides the plastic cow found on the viewing platform. Now this is totally FORBIDDEN. The cow is placed close to the edge. It’s easy for someone to loose their balance and head back to Interlaken sooner than expected. The Harder Kulm is a viewpoint situated 1,321 metres high overlooking…

Photographer for a corporate event at the Uto Kulm. A beautiful sunny day helped to make my life difficult! I was continually searching to find guests with their faces in the shade. I was waiting until the sun sunk lower in the sky. The light was too harsh but I found that my Fujifilm X-T1…
