vfg portrait in english
The vfg, association of creative photographers and vfg pool stand for creative professional photography.
Our ultimate ambition is to stimulate discussions about the photographic image and to promote
professional photography in all areas.


The vfg Bildersoirées (Picture Soirées) are the perfect opportunity for professional and personal exchanges and networking.
The vfg Nachwuchsförderpreis (Award for Promising Talents) / vfg Nwfp and the ewz.selection annually award the high quality of professional Swiss photography and thereby support public discussions and debates concerning photographic images.
The rules and regulations regarding the training of Photo Designers are established in the workgroup vfg Training and in cooperation with the SBf.
At regular intervals, vfg members and interested parties receive the vfg Herold with the latest trends and information.
The website www.vfgonline.ch + www.vfg.ch is a comprehensive informative page in the Internet for all issues concerning photography. It is updated daily with the help of all vfg members.
