Biography
Jürgen Schrader's picture

Born in 1960 I wanted to become a photographer right after school in the early 80s.
But as things sometimes don't turn out as expected I first had to go through many years of studies, working in advertising agencies, multimedia startups, raising children and all that kind of stuff before I finally managed to get back to my roots.

The new lit fire took me straight into spherical panoramas and I am still enjoying this amazing technique. Luckily I was able to find some customers that support me to follow this line and bring panoramic photography to a new experience, especially in the field of computer simulations.

With my background in general marketing I also discovered a talent to help customers to bring things to the point. This is why I get invited to help companies develop the content for and appearance of their web pages, packagings and general advertising material.

Biography
Sandra Mexa's picture

I was born in 1971 and grew up between my father's artistic drawings and paintings. Art always was a interesting subject for me and so was photography. Soon I got to use my father's old Pentax camera and found a way to learn more about photography.

I studied Economics and Management and got my Management Degree in 1994. By that time I decided to start a photography course where I met Carlos Chegado and a couple of years later we started a company: Olho de Peixe - Fish Eye, currently working in Photography among other businesses.
