Karin Erni, freelance photographer
After a 6-year-training in Fine Art and photography at the School of Fine Art Basel/Switzerland and at University of Fine Arts Zurich/Switzerland (master in photography in 1999), I worked a few years as a freelance photographer and camerawoman. Then I decided to share my experience with others, first as a workshop-teacher at Nikon Image House, then as a technical assistant at the photography department of University of Fine Arts Zurich and a photography-teacher at the School of Fine Art Basel.
In 2010 I settled in Brittany, where I renovate a former farmhouse and continue working as a freelance photographer.
