Markus Huersch

Director of Photography

Marcus HershI’m a cinematographer working internationally in drama, documentaries and advertising. Following my qualification as teacher, I studied History of Art, Philosophy and Dramatics at the University of Bern.

I built a house and owned a club, worked as a saddler, waiter and as a cab driver until I found that thing, that has kept me ever since. With nearly 15 years of experience, I’m still amazed by the diversity and the potential cinematography is offering me. Evolving with every assignment rather than repeating is my approach to storytelling.

To me, experience has little value if it’s not paired with an open mind and curiosity. Hence I have preferences, I prefer the diversity and wouldn’t want to commit to a specific style.
