Philippe Wiget, Photographer
I’m a professional photographer helping clients with strong imagery for their communication and branding needs, mostly in corporate, portrait, industrial, technology or architectural contexts. With my roots in marketing communications and science, I’m a partner to my clients, working as a collaborator and goal oriented. My photography clients range from small local to large international companies, architecture offices, communication and advertising agencies, editorial publications and other institutions.
My core competences as a photographer are in industrial, architectural as well as portrait and reportage photography, with a can-do mindset open for new challenges. While being based in Zurich, photo productions happen where my clients ask me to go.
My work is used in corporate communications and branding like annual reports, editorial and corporate publications, public relations, advertising and other visual uses – both off- and online . It’s my job to make projects possible and create photos with a purpose.
Beside commercial assignments, I work on personal projects.
