Philippe Wiget, Photographer

Architectural, corporate, industrial and portrait photography are my specialties as a photographer. My clients range from small local to large international companies, architecture offices, communication and advertising agencies, editorial publications and other institutions.

Based in Zurich with my own studio, I mostly work on location, wherever my clients ask me to go.
My work is used in architectural portfolios, corporate publications and annual reports, editorial publications as well as in other communication and marketing contexts. Beside commercial assignments, I work on personal projects.

Having a background in science, communications and project management and being fascinated by architecture, design and technology forms a solid foundation to understand my clients needs. It’s my job to make projects possible and create imagery with a purpose.

This website shows a selection of projects I’ve worked on. Please do get in touch to discuss your photography needs or any questions you may have: Click for contact details.
