Two worlds of know-how

Come summer or winter,
let us plan your outdoor photo production
in Zermatt, Swiss Alps.

Zermatt has snow twelve months a year

But summer also comes to the slopes beneath the Matterhorn, offering a broad palette of motifs from mountain meadows and hanging bridges to gorges and deep blue lakes.

We guarantee a smooth workflow for your photo or film production

As an executive production team we take care of our international clients’ needs in all aspects of planning photo shoots and film productions, and producing PR, corporate image and corporate video on location in Zermatt.

Longsleeve is your partner on the ground for advertising, fashion, film documentation, movies, incentives and events of all kinds.

The Longsleeve team is made up of commercial photographers, producers and mountain guides. Our portfolio ranges from specialist advice for equipment and set planning, line production and production management to mountain safety.

Guaranteed snow
The village is located at 1,620 m above sea level and is surrounded by 38 four-thousanders.

At the heart of Europe
The international airports of Zurich, Geneva and Milan are just a few hours away.

Ideal for every shoot

Whatever style you need, whether pastoral, modern, glamorous, in- or outdoor, summer or winter, Zermatt has the right setting.

We make it happen

Having collaborated on several productions, a highly experienced alpine guide and an advertising photographer from Hamburg came up with the idea of pooling their collected experience.

Extreme conditions
You need a hut in a spot where there isn’t one? A mobile studio on a glacier perhaps? Or a car on the Matterhorn?

Extreme transport
On the move in a cable car, a helicopter or a snowmobile? On horseback or with porters?

Extreme casting
Models who are great skiers too – whether from New York, Milan or a mountain village?

Putting safety first

Our mountain guides are intimate with the terrain and know the risks – in every conceivable weather. From securing a set with ropes and netting to Alpine rescue, Longsleeve has the professional skills and technical competence.

Dany Biner

Dany Biner was barely 18 when he completed his mountain guide exams. For five years he remained the youngest mountain guide in Switzerland.

Dany contributes thirty years of experience to Longsleeve, encompassing ice climbing, sport climbing, canyoning, technical climbing, expedition climbing and medical know-how. He has been working in the rescue service for decades. He also has two Himalayan expeditions under his belt.

Needless to say, Dany lives in Zermatt with a panoramic view of the mountains. After all, he was born wearing climbing boots. Even his dad ascended the Matterhorn in the record time of three hours at the tender age of fifteen.

Olaf Lumma

For years the commercial photographer Olaf Lumma has pursued his passion for outdoor sports behind the camera. This is what first brought him to the Matterhorn. Since then he has been in thrall to the idea of combining mountain and camera.

For him Longsleeve Productions is the perfect catalyst for people from different worlds who are keen to cooperate. When it comes to team play Olaf has experience enough, both as a photographer for international commercial clients and as owner of the Hamburg-based Play-Studios.

The contrast to Zermatt could hardly be greater: his two daylight-flooded studios are located in the middle of Hamburg’s hip Schanze district.

Cornie Le Roux

Cornie Le Roux has been handling international photo productions for more than ten years. His expertise encompasses most aspects of photography and moving images – budgeting, crewing, logistics, equipment, set management, catering and casting, in the studio or on location.

His legendary tenacity is founded on his degree in management and years spent on sets from Africa to Europe. What he wants, he gets. Only the weather is still not entirely under his control. Cornie left his place of birth, Cape Town, to explore and produce in the shadows of new mountains – and the whole of Europe.
