Jennifer Esseiva is a Swiss landscape photographer. There has always been an artistic streak in her. She started drawing at the age of 4 and discovered photography 11 years later during a course at school. It was at that moment that she was hooked on this art form, which has become a real passion and a means of expression for her.
She is a creative and passionate person but she did not want to have a professional career purely artistic. That is why she decided to go into graphic arts and visual communication to study multimedia design. After 7 years as a web designer, she decided to continue her professional career in digital marketing.
Spontaneous or planned, almost no weekend goes by where she doesn’t take pictures. Arthur, her camera, is always with her. It has its dedicated place in the back of the car or as hand luggage when she travels. Arthur is her companion on every trip! It has captured the beauty of Switzerland, Scotland, USA, South Korea, Chile, Myanmar and many other places.
After trying her hand at portraiture, reportage, wedding and nude photography, she has perfected my skills in landscape photography. She particularly like dramatic looking waterscapes. The more overcast, the more rain, the happier she is! Not only is there less chance of someone being unintentionally photographed, but she finds it gives a totally different dimension to landscapes.
She often uses a tripod to take long breaks. This is necessary because Arthur has to stay still, otherwise the image will be blurred. Sometimes it takes between 1 and 3 minutes of pause time to capture a single picture. This technique allows to see the movement of the clouds and smooth out all the details on the water. She really likes these effects because they make the image unique.
Do you have any questions? Would you like to work with her on a project or would you like an art print? Contact her directly by email. She will be happy to contact you back!
