The category TALENTS should give a more detailed perspective about the life of different talented people,who decided to take an artistic career path and why they love their work. Most of the artist are known for what the achieved, but the struggle to reach the goal remains in the shadow. With this serial of talented artists, which will be published once a month, we want to talk about their career path, how they reached their goal and what they love about their job.
Anja Wurm is the first talented swiss artist that we have chosen, because her incredible pictures speak for themselves. Since completing her apprenticeship as a photographer she worked independently and still does. She lives mostly of advertising and the one or other editorial job. Together with strong stylists and make up artists, she gets the best result out for the perfect picture.
What she likes most about photography is that you can tell a story, or you can show a different perspective of the world. It conveys a message, which can be understood universally, as there is no writing necessary.
Her advice for emerging photographers in Switzerland is to get a lot of references or win awards. It is important to take a lot of pictures as possible and dare to ask people, if they want to join a project itself. If you do so, you can gain a lot of experience and make a lot of contacts as well. The opportunity to present your own work as a photographer in an exhibition is certainly a good strategy and to participate in many various events as possible, so you can see how other photographers work and it is also a good opportunity to socialize.
