A Trail Runs Through It

This is the story about the start of a company. But it’s also the story of the Alps, in a sense.

Summer is officially here! This means just one thing, staying outside and bouncing around the Alps climbing, running, biking and of course making images of it all for the brands we work with. After returning from Nepal, we made the decision to stay closer to home for the remainder of the year. The more we explore our backyard, the Berner Oberland, the more we wonder – why leave? This, combined with being very motivated to …
