About me

From sketching at 4 to capturing landscapes with passion. Swiss landscape photographer on a lifelong artistic journey.
Immerse yourself in the captivating world of Swiss landscape photographer Jennifer Esseiva with this autoportrait. Adorned in a flowing ice-blue dress, she celebrates body positivity against the serene snowy backdrop of Canton Fribourg. Witness the magic of a lone frost-covered tree, standing as a symbol of resilience and beauty in the wintry countryside.

I am a Swiss landscape photographer. There has always been an artistic streak in me. I started drawing at the age of 4 and discovered photography 11 years later during a course at school. It was at that moment that I was hooked on this art form, which has become a real passion and a means of expression for me.

I am is a creative and passionate person but I did not want to have a professional career purely artistic. That is why I decided to go into graphic arts and visual communication to study multimedia design. After 7 years as a web designer, I decided to continue my professional career in digital marketing.

Spontaneous or planned, almost no weekend goes by where I don’t go out and take pictures. Arthur, my camera, is always with me. It has its dedicated place in the back of the car or as hand luggage when I travel. Arthur is my companion on every trip! It has captured the beauty of Switzerland, Faroe Islands, Scotland, Azores, Myanmar and many other places.

After trying my hand at portraiture, reportage, wedding and nude photography, I have perfected my skills in landscape photography. I particularly like dramatic looking waterscapes. The more overcast, the more rain, the happier I am! Not only is there less chance of someone being unintentionally photographed, but I find it gives a totally different dimension to landscapes.
