Everyone who is familiar with Switzerland knows that the mountains are never too far away. You live with them, their shadows, their weather, their lights. They can mean you well, they can make things difficult for you – or even impossible. They are an untamed force in our midst. The motifs presented here were captured by CHRISTOF SCHMIDT in the canton of Grisons, in the mountains above the legendary village of Davos, a popular ski resort and known for its conference center, where the famous and almost mystical World Economic Forum takes place each year.
Christof Schmidt tells GoSee: "Almost horizontally, the Parsenn Ridge Trail stretches from the Gotschnagrat all the way to the Strela Pass on an average of almost 2300m altitude and is rightly considered one of the most rewarding mountain hiking trails in Switzerland. The photos were created in late autumn – with lots of luck with the weather and a little patience."
Christof Schmidt is a passionate landscape photographer. Mountains are his greatest passion. So when he is not working, he is always on the lookout for impressive pictures of nature. The motifs (a must-see in XXL!) have been released by him for all purposes. If you are interested, feel free to contact him and explain the use you have in mind. You are sure to find a sympathetic and interested listener.

The BMW1 motif is part of personal work by photographer CHRISTOF SCHMIDT. The vehicle was illuminated with a flash and then combined with backgrounds and surfaces from his photo archive in post production, which was done by Christof himself.
"Rent a Car is a very old photo series of mine that I still love." says CHRISTOF SCHMIDT. He explains: "I shot these photos ten years ago in South Africa. Equipped with only a handful of roll films, a medium-format camera and just one lens, we travelled around Cape Town." The photos are analogue, shot on film." And to create the authentic vintage look, Christof Schmidt used coarse-grained color films. Go & See!

Swiss resident photographer Christof SCHMIDT presents here on GoSee his project 'Business Cards' with transportation motifs. For the photo agency MAGROUND, he photographed atmospheric backgrounds in an industrial port at night and presents a dance series which he photographed with his daughter.
"Working with kids is such a wonderful thing, dancing with no music at all. For this personal work, my daughter had lots of fun during the shoot. The photos were created with a large-format analog camera from Sinar, combined with a digital back from Hasselblad."
