THIS IS WHAT WE DO

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.

Behind the Scenes

A TEAM OF PASSIONATE PHOTOGRAPHERS

Jean-Luc Grossmann

Jean-Luc is a French photographer living in Zurich, Switzerland. Beside his main occupation as a freelance photographer in the corporate world, Jean-Luc is pursuing visual storytelling ideas, self-exploration, creativeness and bring awareness to themes that would otherwise be outside his realm of everyday opportunities.
The spirit of travel and adventure plays an important role in Jean-Luc’s life. To live hand in hand with nature and to explore remote and wild places around the world has always been his passion since he was a little kid. But travel is also about the locals he meets along the way and the insights he gets into their culture. These encounters often become one of the things he treasures most about a journey.
Jean-Luc continues to explore all facets of photography, encouraging others to be curious about the new and the unknown.

Justin Hession

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

Pascal 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.
