Our new project: Wild Vienna!


In November 2012, our newest photo project went online.

Not quite the typical subject for our usual (landscape dominated) work but very fascinating nevertheless. Although there is a lot of wildlife photography and photojournalism involved, we still feel we can implement all our 20 years of experience in nature photography into this creative venture. Thanks to our coordinator and communications-director Michael Ganzwohl, the project will run smoothly on the "surface", no matter how chaotic and unpredictable the creative work will be at times in the background...

Due to the wide spectrum of photography, we invited additional photographers, who we know will deliver great work: Thomas Haider (under water photography) and the up- and coming photographer/writer/filmer duo Chrsitine Sonvilla and Marc Graf. There are plans to even extend the team at some point for specific missions.

Creating this project (along with the work the "Image Library" caused) was the main reason of our delayed website relaunch. It is exhausting work but we really had a blast setting it up and take fresh Vienna photographs!
We'll post updates here frequently - stay tuned.

Check out the website and let us know what you think! (and - of course - like it on facebook f.e.!!!)
