David Mayenfisch, the Know-How
A proper know-how, teamwork and a fully equipped digital studio make every project possible. The camera and lighting equipment has sturdy shipping cases allowing compromise free studio like facilities on any location. We also take care of retouching and color separation for offset printing.
On specific request can the photography be done on film to take advantage of its texture, ambiances and permanent archival properties. We do the film scanning in house.

Born in Geneva in 1969, I became interested in photography as a teenager and was soon enlarging my own B&W and colour prints. Initially self taught, I gained further training assisting others.
In 1990 I was accepted by the "Art Center College of Design", California where my graduation work received the "1993 Kodak World Student Image Fine Art Photo Award" for a series of ethereal characters employing underwater techniques.
Working in New York I produced portraits of artists such as: Walter Dallas, Maria McKee, Cassandra Wilson, for a number of magazines and record companies. At the same time I continued to develop and refine the processes and techniques of the underwater ethereal character.
Still continuing with my New York assignments (Dianne Reeves, Regina Carter, dentsu advertising); I returned to Geneva in 1996 and continued the development of the range and versatility of my work from beauty and fashion to lifestyle advertising.
During my part time tenure as lecturer at Lausanne's HES-SO school of design (2002 to 2005) I took advantage of my intermittent academicals dunks to reconsider my ways of working among many others.
