Matthias Taugwalder
Matthias Taugwalder
Zurich, Switzerland

Matthias Taugwalder was born in 1981 and grew up in Zermatt (Switzerland). After spending his childhood in the mountains, he studied Business Informatics at the University of Zürich. He is a direct descendant of the mountaineers Peter Taugwalder and Son, who experienced the drama of the first ascent of the Matterhorn with Edward Whymper on 14th July 1865. The family tradition is obligatory, it is a matter of honour for him to take his panoramic shots by climbing the ascents and doing without helicopter services.

Taugwalder is a passionate panoramic photographer. The focus of his photographic creativity is the Alps and the surrounding area. By capturing the structures, forms and aura of the mountain landscape as realistically as possible, he meets documentary standards. In addition, as a computer expert, he makes full use of the opportunities offered by electronics.

Since 2008, Matthias Taugwalder has been a member of the board of the directors of IVRPA (International VR Photography Association) – an international association of panoramic photographers.

Alongside his freelance activities, Matthias Taugwalder runs his own company Concept360. Concept360 offers different services in the field of panoramic photography, with a special focus on high-alpine and high-resolution panoramic photography. The list of clients includes companies, advertising agencies, museums, newspapers and publishing houses.
