Shotview : WIEN TOURISMUS, TUSH with Jamie Burke, portrait workshop with Peter RIGAUD, editorials for BOLERO MEN, SLEEK, L'OFFICIEL, STERN

WIEN TOURISMUS booked Peter RIGAUD for another season, in order to capture subjects for the upcoming seasonal campaign. Peter recently published a photo book about Vienna. He lived up to his reputation and managed to find motifs, which not only make the prospect of travelling to Vienna rather attractive, but also have us longing for winter.

He also photographed public figures for STERN magazine. This included a portrait shoot at the Natural History Museum, with actor Hans Zischler. Together with illustrator Hanna Zecka, Zischler wrote the best-selling book ‘Schmetterlingskoffer’: The story of a suitcase containing mounted butterflies, which had been lost within the archives of the museum for a long time.

Furthermore, he produced two portraits of the German Green party's star politicians Jürgen Trittin and Renate Kühnast, whose party is experiencing genuine peaks in voter surveys.

The countdown is on and a few last spots are still available (as reported by GoSee). Peter Rigaud - the master of portraiture and journalism, will share his knowledge at a LAIF MASTERWORKSHOP, a new discussion platform for professionals and students, taking place from the 29th to the 31st of October in Berlin. Conditions for prospective participants are the required equipment (camera, laptop and software) as well as submitting the PDF application to Laif. The workshop only has 12 seats available and costs 490 Euro each (50 % discount for students)

Together with Isabelle Thiry, Markus PRITZI produced the ‘Ganz Unten’ ( way down low) series for the latest issue of SLEEK magazine. The delightfully gloomy editorial introduces the topic of the related article, which deals with the paradox tendency prevailing in fashion circles, to dress up as crazy as possible, instead of cherishing fashionable sophistication.

In collaboration with Lale Aktay, Joachim BALDAUF shot the men's accessories series of L'OFFICIEL HOMMES GERMANY, titled ‘Access all Areas’. Motifs featuring Jamie Burke were produced for TUSH. For BOLERO's ‘City Trips’, Joachim conjured the flair of 1950s Berlin.

A quick reminder: New shotview member Amira FRITZ is being exhibited in Paris and Berlin! The Fédération Française du Prêt-à-Porter Féminin (5, rue Caumartin 75009 Paris) will be showing works by Amira in their most precious halls until the 30th of November. The exhibition at the Berlin Gallery for Modern Photography (Schröderstrasse 13, 10119 Berlin) will run until the 4th of December.
