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.
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 has owned her own photo studio www.gecko-fotografie.ch for over 10 years.
Her Photography school www.fotolearn.ch opened in 2013. She is teaching small classes in a variety of photography genres from the Basics to Food Workshops and guided Photo tours to Swedish Lapland and Scotland.
Photography is even more important today and she wants to help to produce better images, so that later generations can see a correct picture of our time.
Travelling and photographing landscapes gives her time to relax and re-energize her creativity for her daily life. You can see her work on www.susans-gallery.ch
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.
