Hello, I am the photographer behind Robert Peterson Photography. I am an American, currently living in the amazingly beautiful country of Switzerland. I live with my Swiss wife and 3 young children. Switzerland is such a spectacular little country, so I want to show everyone its beauty on this website. Below are a few of my photos that I have for sale at Zazzle.comandPixels.com. The Zazzle links are for canvas prints, and the Pixels links are for many different products. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your time surfing through my website. Robert

PHOTOS OF THE DAY!
This was my amazing view on October 25th, 2015. I was up on the Lucerne, Switzerland old wall tower for about 2 hours waiting for the sunset. I was really blessed with an almost perfect evening, it wasn’t too cold, there wasn’t too much haze in the air, there was mostly blue sky with feathery clouds mixed in, and then the blazing orange sunset over Mount Pilatus. I took about 400 photos in that 2 hours, so I will be posting more from that day on this website, so I hope you come back to check them out. I also wrote more about this evening in this portfolio post, Lucerne Switzerland Sunset View From Tower

“You don’t take a photograph,
you make it.”
“ You’ve got to push yourself harder. You’ve got to start looking for pictures nobody else could take. You’ve got to take the tools you have and probe deeper.”
William Albert Allard
“Which of my photographs is my favorite?
The one I’m going to take tomorrow.”
Here is a sample of my latest blog posts. They will be mostly photography related, but I will probably throw in some other non-photography posts from time to time also.
