My time here in Milan has come to end – but only for now. I need to go back to Zurich for a busy week of shootings in Switzerland and Germany. However, I am looking forward to be back soon in this sunny and fashionable city.
Alright, I am already a week here in Milan and my days look basically like: getting up in the morning, look for all the castings and where to get there and when. Then it’s all about waiting and waiting and waiting. Sometimes the line is even down the stairs to the entrance and beyond. Yes it needs a lot of patience.
Il dolce far niente. This is what I usually connect with spending time in Italy. A wonderful countryside, great food, easy-going and open-minded people. The list how to describe this country is long. In my case, it’s not about holiday this time but quite the contrary. We all know the feeling of looking for a new adventure. Routine and kind of a guarantee are great and priceless, but we’re all arriving at a point where we feel like making a further step into the chosen direction.
During various photoshoots I did in the last years until now, I could discover so many nice spots I haven’t really noticed before. Zurich is my hometown, but when you are rushing through the city most of the time, you miss much of its magic.
Usually in August there is vacation mood everywhere. Especially in my industry you can notice that. Many of the clients, agencies and production companies are away on vacation during this summer time. And this is absolutely right. I mean it is important to relax sometimes and recharge your batteries.
Munich – a city famous for its beer garden and the legendary „Oktoberfest“, where beer flows in liters and tons of sausages and pretzels got eaten. Munich is also known for the shopping streets, the residency of Munich, beautiful castles and parks and of course the place to be in the heart of the city – the “Marienplatz”.
