With more than 30 years of professional experience in photography, we have a developed special talents to capture images of Heads of State, diplomats, scientists, artists, sports figure, international activists, and news personalities. During the past 6 years “Orbisswiss Photos & Press” has covered more than 2,000 events. Our digital images have been featured in major publications on 3 continents.

We are accustomed to cover Geneva international events at the United Nations, WHO, ILO, WMO, WTC, WIPO and other UN organizations. We also cover press conferences, individual groups, business meetings, N.G.O.s in Geneva, and select venues in Switzerland. We are a proud member of the Geneva Press Club (Club suisse de la presse).

Each image is selected for quality and subject relavance. Our aim is always to take the best photo of the person or persons!

Remaining discrete, respectful, and following established security measures when taking photos of VIPs is the badge of a seasoned reporter. Indoors, we primarily use Nikon mirroless equipment which does not emit any 'click noise' when taking photos.
 
Let us cover your next event in Switzerland - CONTACT. We are absolutely confident that you will be thoroughly satisfied with the quality of our work.
