Matt Anderson – Co-Director & Instructor

Living in Switzerland since 2008, Matt's photography career began while studying journalism in the USA. He worked as a newspaper photographer at three different daily newspapers and freelanced regularly for the Associated Press Seattle Bureau. These days, in Switzerland, he has dedicated himself to helping other photographers embrace and expand their own creativity. He takes pride in creating easy to understand presentations, exercises and self-assignments that take the confusion and frustration out of learning. Matt feels that there's no better backyard for a photography school than beautiful Switzerland.

Dagmar Anderson – Co-Director & Assistant Instructor

Viewfinder's co-director, Dagmar Anderson, can be found working away diligently behind the scenes – where she assists with planning, instructor coordination and student inquiries at Viewfinder. An indigenous Swiss, Dagmar has chronically itchy feet and enjoys exploring new corners of Switzerland as well as visiting new countries and cultures as often as she can. Dagmar's long experience as a professional nurse in Switzerland makes her a great resource on longer, more remote trips. She's a fast learner and has become a skilled photographer since taking on her role at Viewfinder in 2012.
