Mirko Ries

After an apprenticeship in business administration, several months in Southeast Asia, an internship at Migros Magazin and an abandoned study of psychology, he decided to completely dedicate his life to photography and work as a freelance photographer.

While traveling the world with his camera and working on various topics, mainly social issues, Mirko gained a deep understanding for other cultures as well as for people living beyond the norm.

Mirko is an open minded, curious, reliable and affable photographer for whom photography is not only a job but also his passion.
