Shotview Photographers : H&M campaign, Matthias Schweighöfer for PRO ORGANSPENDE, BURGTHEATER WIEN, MEISSEN, BWIN, new entry Peter GEHRKE & exhibitions in Vienna and Cannes...

Shotview Peter GEHRKE now represents Peter GEHRKE. The photographer has made his mark on the visual fashion world with countless campaigns for brands such as H&M, Acne, Diesel, CCDK and Minimarket. He is an ideal compliment to the talent the agency already represents.

He has a cool Scandinavian personality, with a stylish Stockholm-schooled eye for fashion and trends, as well as a fantastic instinct for colour and plasticity. A cordial welcome!

Peter RIGAUD was sent on tour by RAIFFEISEN CENTRO BANK to seek out selected partners from the bank’s client list and to document the economy’s gradual recovery from the credit crunch. CENTRO BANK wanted to capture the importance of the cooperation between banks and the economy, and to show that they are a good partner for growth security and long-term revenues. We have attached the aspiring businesses.

Peter RIGAUD’s talent for taking part in a silent dialogue in portraits, the depth and trust of which are clearly visible in the final image, ensures that he is not just a popular choice for the free economy: as his project for BURGTHEATER VIENNA, which has just been released, goes to show. He photographed the entire ensemble, which form the crème de la crème of German speaking acting. We have attached a selection from the 87 images.

The LEICA GALERIE SALZBURG was likewise impressed by Peter’s work and offered the Vienna-based photographer a space in which to present an exhibition of his portraits to the public.
