    Photographer and director, Thierry Pradervand loves to create atmospheres and emotions through his images. In his studio, built in the center of Switzerland he shot more than 450 fashion editos for swiss and international magazines. He also worked an artistic director for other magazines to create and shoot their publicity concepts. His international jewellery and watch campaigns, lead him to shoot adds for the same brands as a director as well, opening a new world to him. He loves working with atmospheres and strong concepts with a short and efficient narration. But soon enough, the desire to deal with characters and plot emerged. This is when he created «Inred production», a film production company.
    THE FRUIT OF DESIRE is his first film as a director, completed in october 2016.
