Silvia Truessel Photography, Uster, Zurich, Switzerland.

I love photography and writing, the nature and wildlife of Africa, traveling and storytelling. I am a pastor with heart and soul and deep down I remain a nomad. My dream is to live and work in southern Africa one day and have enough time to devote myself to photography and writing, discovering nature and observing the wildlife.


August 2019 to March 2020: Basic and advanced module of the course Photography CAS. Auditing of the degree by the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK).

Due to the corona crisis, it was no longer possible to attend the final module.


From 2009 in self-study with various lectures at Nikon Switzerland, workshops on various topics as well as photo trips in Botswana with professional photographers (e.g. James Gifford).


I am on may way with a Nikon full frame and various lenses, love the filter system from Lee Filters, tripods from Gitzo and Flipside Backpacks from Lowpro.
