International Photo Festival Olten


International Photo Festival of Switzerland


25th – 27th August 2017

Love photography? Then here is a festival which is bound to be of interest to you! The first International Photo Festival of Switzerland is a 3 day event taking place from 25th – 27th August 2017 in Olten. The idea is for people to get a “behind the scenes” look at the workings of photography from top international photographers, to find out what inspires them, and how they create their best work.

The program of keynote speakers includes top photographers and people working internationally for news agencies such as the New York Times, National Geographic, Geo and Washington Post, etc. All the keynote speeches are in English. In addition there are workshops, seminars as well as portfolio reviews where you can get top photographers to give you an opinion on your own portfolio. The seminars will be mainly in German but a few will be conducted in English – check the program for full details.

Not only will you get a chance to see some amazing photography but you will also hear the stories behind the work in the photographer’s own words.

The event is the inspiration of Swiss photographer Marco Grob, Creative Director Charles Blunier, Paul Merki, previously of Light + Byte and photographer Remo Buess from Olten.
