Federico   Naef   (1962),   a    photographer  born  and  raised  in  Zurich, has mastered the art of developing and implementing innovative and creative ideas  to  achieve  aesthetic  and  meaningful  pictures.  From  a  young  age  Federico  was fascinated by cameras and their function to capture special moments and bring them to life. Drawing inspiration from the movie “Blow Up” directed by M. Antonioni, depicting the life of a photographer in London during the 60s, he decided to quit his studies and turn his career towards photography.


Starting  off  as  a  freelance  assistant  for  various  fashion-photographers,  he  pursued  his occupation  as  a  paparazzo  for  several  publishing  houses,  giving  Federico  the  ability  to expand his range of competencies and refine his skills in press photography. Later on he realized numerous works in the field of fashion, beauty and advertising, specialising on portraits, still-lives, and food. Having obtained profound knowledge in a range of fields,  he  was  appointed  photographer  of  the Zurich Opera  Ballet.  

 

Focusing  his  art  on societal tendencies, nature’s beauty, the news and more, by means of digital and analogue photography,  Federico  was  awarded  ADC  Gold  for Amnesty International - Not Here But Now- campaign, as well as the “Keeper of the flame”.


Federico Naef  worked abroad  in  various  capitals  of  the  world and took part ar international exhibitions. Continuous self-development have helped Federico become the artist that he is today.
