Portrait Madlaina E Kougionis 0003

My name is Madlaina Walther and I live and work in the Engadine, Switzerland.  After having finished my Master's degree in Physical Education at the ETH Zurich, I completed the formation as Snow Sports Instructor with Swiss Federal Diploma.

Besides my interest in sports and movements, I'm fascinated by photography since I have been a child. That’s the reason why I studied editorial photography at the MAZ Lucerne (The Swiss School of Journalism). I'm specialized in outdoor/action sports as well as nature and landscape photography.

For me, sports, snow sports activities and photography include all important elements: exercising in the great outdoors in all weather conditions, share my experiences with others, not only through teaching but also through the expression of photography. In addition, sports and photography let me discover places that I didn’t know before.

I am looking forward to your inquiries regarding my photography or sports services. Click here to see my portfolio. For my offerings in the domain of sports, click on Sports.

As I have a special interest for women working as action sports photographers, I founded the Facebook page "Women in Action Sports Photography".
