Sports and Events

Freelance sports and event photographer

Between 2008-2014 I spent my time living in the beautiful Swiss Alps. It was during this time that my love for sports photography grew and I’m proud to have worked with  and photographed some world class athletes.

In the winter months, my sports photography work would mainly cover ski and snowboard photography. The pinnacle of working in this genre was 3 amazing seasons assigned as a staff ski photographer on the European stages of the Freeride World Tour ski and snowboard event – a dream come true for any big mountain ski and snowboard lover.

During the summer months, I would focus on golf and cycling photography, covering  events both in Switzerland as well as the French Alps and Italian Dolomites. For 3 seasons, I worked as a staff photographer on the Trois Etapes pro/am cycling event and since 2012, I have photographed the Golf Club de Sion Pro/Am golf tournament.

In addition to covering sports events, I also work closely with individual athletes, taking images of their respective sports as well as portraits and marketing images that can be used by magazines or sponsors.

As a professional sports photographer, my mountain skills and understanding of the sports I cover allow me to take my camera equipment to any location and capture images suitable for both large format print and online use.

Philip Bruchez – Pro/Am organiser at Golf Club de Sion, Switzerland

“Running an event like the Pro/Am can be tricky. Phil takes the stress out of my job by being able to look after both the design of our brochure and course signage as well as our photographic requirements. He always comes up with something a little different each year that impresses both us and the players and is very easy to work with. His photography skills are second to none and he never fails to capture both the action and atmosphere of our tournament, no matter what the weather!”
