Founded by award-winning photographer Raffaele Cabras Keller, the Swiss School of Photography is one of the most recognized Photography schools in Switzerland.

Photography is a journey full of discovery, learning and practice. We are happy to invite you to join us on this wonderful journey to transform your skills whenever your end goal is to get a new hobby or profession.

Photography is not just a click. It is a specific workflow. It starts with researching the spot/environment, planning the shot/lightening, using the right settings and post-processing techniques to get the best possible result. This workflow applies to every genre of photography, from portrait to architecture, from black&white to landscape, from macro to drone photography.  

With 15 years of photography experience we combine in depth technical knowledge and creativity skills to teach you fast and effectively. We focus more on practical and hands on experience rather than simply on theory, as the best learning comes from practice and through professional mentorship. We have a very small groups (up to 5 students) to provide enough attention and individual approach to each student. Most of the time we even have 2 instructors per course or workshop to double the attention to each student.

Regardless of your level and experience, we will teach you to take premium photographs, boost your creativity and reach your potential. 

 

Raffaele Cabras Keller   Co-Founder, Award-winning Photographer, Aerial Photographer and Videographer   I am a passionate photographer who grew up between the amazing Sardinian coast and the beautiful Swiss mountains.  I started at an early age to capture and discover the beauty of nature through photography. But it wasn't until I completed my engineering studies and academic research in the field of image processing that I began to travel.  My love for photography brought me to travel extensively around the globe during the last ten years. Besides documenting my trips and adventures on my popular Instagram feed  @mixyourshot , I also write tutorials for blogs and magazines. Furthermore my photos have been published by several international photography magazines.  I am a PolarPro, Haida Filters and Irix Lens brand ambassador and I have recently been awarded the Gold Medal at the prestigious Trierenberg Super Circuit 2017, received three awards at the MIFA Moscow International Foto Awards 2017, and collected 4 Honorable Mentions at the International Photographer of the Year 2017.

Nika Rudd   Co-Founder, Photographer, Digital Marketing   I was working in a global IT Consultancy as a Business Analyst in the UK. Nevertheless, I’ve escaped the corporate world after a while, that experience taught me to see how different businesses work and operate, how to adapt quickly for clients needs and manage business relationships. Also, at the same time I’ve started to travel more and created my Travel Blog on Instagram. I’ve learned everything about blogging photography and editing styles as well as everything about social media management and growth.  But the most important moment in my career was when I’ve joined one of the biggest Digital Marketing Agencies in London as a Digital Marketing Strategist. I managed delivery of Paid Ads Campaigns (£2-8 million budget) on multiple social media and digital marketing channels, there I’ve learned everything also about Social Media Advertising. On my spare time I was mastering my photography skills.  Now I teach photography and social media in Zurich and around the world.
