Susan Brunner was born in 1966 in Switzerland near the City of Zürich.
At an early age, she was infected with travel fever. Her destinations were Australia, New Zealand, some Asian countries, America, Canada, Scotland and Sweden, just to name a few.
Susan’s love for photography was awakened in the 1990ies by her father; a dream was born.
During a two-year stay in New York, she studied Photography and received a Certificate in Professional Photography by the
New York Institute of Photography.
In September 2003, she moved to Australia to study photography full time. Three years later, she received her Art degree at the
International College of Professional Photography in Melbourne.
During her training, in Australia, her work about the drought of the last two decades in Australia was recorded for the Australian national archives in Canberra.
Over a period of ten-years, Susan documented life on a sheep Station in Australia's Outback. The resulting pictures bear witness to the history of a family that has farmed the land for five generations. Due to the long drought period, the family had to give up the Station in 2016.
Susan returned to Switzerland after her studies in 2006. She owened own photo studio for over 11years.
Her Photography school www.fotolearn.ch opened in 2013. She is teaching small classes in a variety of photography genres from Landscape workshops to Food photography and guided Photo tours.
Travelling and photographing landscapes gives her time to relax and re-energize her creativity for her daily life.
“Capturing our beautiful world for future generations” is what it’s all about for Susan!
Many of Susan’s photographic images have been recognized internationally and awarded.
Susan is a member of the Swiss Professional Photographers and Photodesigner Association (SBF) www.sbf.ch.
