PlanetVisible is a small, like-minded and flexible photography collective positioned to collaborate in the creative process of shaping visual stories. We are passionate about caring for people, the environment and for creating a positive impact on our planet. Our lives started in different parts of the world but it is the shared exchange and passion for storytelling and visual imagery that bonded us as friends. This friendship has grown into a purposeful partnership that is today PlanetVisible.
By working closely within a team we create a collection of versatile and striking images to fit individual projects. We listen carefully to our clients requirements and deliver professionally crafted work that appeals to editors and publications. By collaborating with magazines, newspapers and online media, PlanetVisible has the reach to bring exposure and attention to local stories and share them with the world.
Working on projects is heightening our motivation and creativity enabling us to cover in-depth stories in short periods of time. It’s this “togetherness” which is enriching our photography.

- Walk through the world with eyes wide open and be curious about our surroundings
- Be respectful of our different environments and take nothing for granted
- Be open to new ideas and differing views
- Focus on stories that should be told
- Give access freely to what we have learned and experienced
Behind the Scenes
A TEAM OF PASSIONATE PHOTOGRAPHERS
Jean-Luc confesses that the spirit of adventure is strong within his soul. Born in Paris he has lived for the past 33 years in Switzerland where he works as a professional corporate photographer. He loves to discover foreign cultures around the globe and feels as much at home in the desert as he does on pack ice. His various trips have led him to countries as diverse as Greenland, Madagascar, Cape Verde, Namibia and Vietnam. Jean-Luc continues to explore all facets of travel and outdoor photography, encouraging others to discover the world around them and to be curious about the new and the unknown.
Having travelled the world as a backpacker in the 1990’s, Justin recognized his passion for the visual image. He spent the next three years studying photography before gaining employment with News Corp thus entering the world of newspaper photography. It was a great classroom and one that created a multi skilled base for future work. For the last ten years, Justin has resided in Zurich, Switzerland working as a freelance photographer for some of the biggest companies in Europe. His love for the visual image has never diminished and he works passionately on new and intriguing projects that constantly push his photography in different directions.
Pascal Richard grew up surrounded by paintings by various artists like Chagall, Miro and Dali. As his parents owned an art gallery in Zurich, he understood from an early age the power of expressing things through images. At the art school in Vevey, Switzerland he realized that photography is an incredibly strong medium to discover, document and share what he likes most – humans and their various ways of living, creating and working. He believes that there is always a story to be told and follows his passion to uncover new and inspiring projects around the globe.
