At www.corona.photo, Paul Merki links reading tips, tutorials and news. The photographer, event organizer and former photo retailer has put together his own website to provide photographers with ideas, inspiration and special offers during the Corona crisis.
Merki is the founder and longtime owner of Light + Byte in Zurich and co-organizer of photo events such as ipfo.ch, digital-event.ch and photo-switzerland.ch. Photography has been the basis of his income for over 30 years. After the successful sale of Light + Byte in February 2017, the time has now come to give something back to the community, writes Merki on his platform. "With so much involuntary free time, it makes sense to expand your knowledge and acquire new skills so that you can emerge stronger from the crisis."
Under www.corona.photo photographers and photography enthusiasts can find links, tips, how-to guides, webinars and financial aid info for the self-employed. Corona.photo should be an addition to everyday lockdown, because nobody wants to just watch Netflix & Co. all day long.
