Skype Session

Not everyone likes to travel as much as I do. I get that. That's why I offer Skype sessions (1½ hours+) – this way, you can ask me anything that interests you without even having to leave your comfy couch. 

These sessions start at CHF 190, and additional time add-ons are an option. 

Do you have questions or do you want to know exactly how I can help you during a Skype session? Drop me a message for more information: hello@andrearufener.com.

One On One

These sessions are in person and we will cover everything I can teach in either a half or a full day. You can visit me at home (and meet my cute cat, too) or I will happily travel to wherever you’d like to have your session (Paris, anyone?). 

We will start off with a portfolio review of your work, followed by a few hours of Q and A, going over questions you have prepped for me: I am an open book, so feel free to ask me anything you want to know. Afterwards we will go outside and photograph a couple* together. This way, you will get to take a peek behind the scenes and see how I work, how I deal with my clients and how I use natural light for my pictures. After the photo shoot we will go through our images together and work on a few in post production.
(* during full day sessions only) 

These sessions take at least half a day (4h) and start at CHF 490.

Shoot me an email and we can plan out our One on One time together!

I worked in Marketing for international companies for over 10 years, studied in Minneapolis, had jobs in Hong Kong and Melbourne, graduated my Marketing studies as the second-best student nationwide in 2008 and was a part time tutor for 5 years at one of the leading Marketing schools in Switzerland. Until in summer 2017, I listened to my heart and quit my successful career to become a self-employed photographer. This proved to be one of the best decisions of my life.  

Today, I get to document love stories and people all over the world.
