Thomas Furter lives and works as an architect and photographer in Wald, Switzerland. His focus is on landscape and travel photography.
He prbably has got the photography through his family. His grand-grandfather had a studio where he portrayed people on silver coated glass. Thomas’ grandfather was a passionate mountaineer. His only companion was usually only his Leica. He published his pictures in various books. Thomas’ dad then made his first pictures on medium format with a Yashica. And at the age of 12 Thomas went into photography with a SLR camera, himself.
At the age of fifteen, he began taking black and white shots, which he enlarged himself. When he was 20 he was fortunate enough to open his first exhibitions and publish his first reports. He decided to study architecture by the time and founded his own business in 2007.
There has hardly been a corner of this earth to which his camera did not accompany him. Be it climbing in the Fisher Towers, UT or paddling the Yukon, AK, hiking in Corsica (F) or ski touring in the Swiss Alps. Especially his passion for alpinism made him visit hard to reach areas in Europe, Canada and the USA.
