From bird-watching to bird photography: For many years, I have dedicated much of my free time to bird-watching and nature conservation. My pictures are an attempt to capture the beauty of birds and the fascination they inspire.


Andi Hofstetter

As an environmental engineer, I work with men as well as nature. I am also a nature photographer who tries to bring people closer to the beauty and diversity of local nature. I pass on my knowledge and enthusiasm for nature photography through photo workshops throughout Switzerland.

Nature has always fascinated and interested me. A few years ago I rediscovered nature and landscape photography. With my pictures, I want to communicate my enthusiasm for all the different facets of nature, the small and the big, the colors and the structures, the far and the near.
