four exceptional locations for your corporate shooting in switzerland

There’s nothing like a photo shoot in the open air to break with the usual “stock type” advertising images. For your corporate shooting, rather than a meeting room, you have chosen a natural setting as a background, the cameras are waiting, your colleagues are on the alert. The only thing you are still missing is the name of the place where you will take the perfect picture. You haven’t made up your mind yet? Don’t worry, Lakeprod recommends some Swiss nuggets.

mountain authenticity: on the shores of Lake Geneva

The largest Alpine and subalpine lake in Central Europe, Lake Geneva is one of the jewels of French-speaking Switzerland. Its beauty stems in particular from the diversity of the places that border it: vineyard route, Alpine chain, seaside resorts such as Montreux etc. This variety of towns and landscapes makes it an ideal place for all types of shootings. In particular, discover Vevey, on the north bank of the canton of Vaud. Its monuments such as the Château Saint-Maire, the Cathedral or the Tour de l’Ale make it a choice location for your photo or video shoot. In a single shot, you can capture: the lake, the Alps and the alleys of the quays of Ouchy. The perfect background to showcase local products, cultural activities or tourist services. Don’t be afraid of climatic constraints. Sublime in summer as in winter, Vevey offers you a mild climate suitable for photo and video shoots.

For a grandiose event, let yourself be conquered by the Pont du Diable Gorges in the heart of the Parc Sylvestre. A river flows there almost 50m underground. Make nature, sports and thrill lovers dream with a memorable photo session while diving or snorkeling. If you’re a fan of old stones, choose Fort de l’Écluse. A strategic passage from the Jura to the Alps, it has hosted the Ecluse Parade since antiquity and will appeal to cultured audiences.

refinement, calm and exoticism: the city of lucerne and the ruinaulta

Lucerne and its surroundings are famous for their wooden covered bridges. The Kapellebrücke in particular is a must-see in the city, as is the Alstadt and the colourful old town centre. Water, tiles, bricks and flower pots: an incredible range of textures is available for your lens, for stunning renderings on social networks such as Instagram. Be careful however to entrust your project to an experienced photo studio. This superb background should not overwhelm your campaign subject.

The Ruinaulta offers you for its part exoticism and fullness. Nicknamed the Swiss Grand Canyon and nestled in a green setting, it culminates at an altitude of 400m. As quiet as it is abrupt, this unusual place crossed by the Rhine provides calm and a change of scenery for your advertising campaigns. The mere sight of it is a journey in itself. Our tip: wait until sunset to capture the blaze of the peaks.

for a wildlife shooting: the hollows of the van and the val d'anniviers

Does your company wish to deepen its mastery of animal communication campaigns? If so, visit the Creux Du Van nature reserve. Many endemic animal species live there in the wild and as long as you respect their habitat, you can photograph or film marmots, ibexes and other creatures from the summits. You can do the same with a wide range of unique plants, such as asters, anemones and gentians. This is an opportunity to reintroduce a little something unexpected in sometimes very conventional advertising campaigns, while paying homage to the fauna and flora of the mountain pastures.

Need photos or videos of a riding session? The ranches and the magnificent horses of the Val d’Anniviers will know how to satisfy you. To surpass them in beauty? It’s almost impossible. During the summer, opt for a short gallop in the flowery valley; in the winter, the alpine snow will provide you with another excellent setting to showcase your chosen animal. Note that this type of shooting requires a certain amount of logistics in terms of transport, accessories and management of the animal. But with a good studio, the photos or videos you get will be worth it.

our poetic touch: niesen funicular and trift a gadmen bridge

With a view stretching from the Jura to the Bernese Alps, over Lake Thun and the Simmental, another breathtaking panorama awaits you in the Niesen. How many holidaymakers or influencers will you come across while photographing the view? Social networks are full of images of the summits, so be inventive. Take an interest in the small, bright red funicular that climbs up the mountainside. If you take a closer look, you’ll find its little train-like charm. Pass on this picturesque magic to your customers and followers. Immortalize the valour and smallness of this machine from another time, work on the colours and exposure in post-production and give it a lovely vintage look.

Less technical in appearance but just as fascinating, the Trift Bridge offers a spectacular view and crossing of the Gadmen Abyss, overlooking the canton of Bern. Its 170 metres long and no less than 100 metres above the ground will appeal to thrill-seekers, but also to poets and nostalgics. Because it looks like just a few pieces of wood connected by a rope!

All in all, Switzerland has something for every occasion. There are so many possibilities for your corporate shoots, whether in photos, videos or other media. Switzerland’s natural jewels will give your campaigns an unforgettable flavour.
