The master-class photographer Joachim Bergauer was born on 12.07.1965 in Schwarzach (Salzburg). The entrance to the advertising industry was the result of the photography in his adolescence. The artist also gained journalistic experience while working at the austrian boulevard during his long lasting function as a press photographer.
In the 1990’s, Joachim Bergauer founded his establishment with two assistents. He’s specialised to image-, advertising-, and art-photography. Ever since, the salzburg citizen is commonly booked by various advertising agencies and magazines (New York Times, Spiegel, Profil, …) in his home country and abroad too. World-famous celebrities from sport and media are also visiting his studio very often to get in the right light for upcoming successful pictures.
At the beginning of 2000, Bergauer founded in addition to his photography an advertising agency and ever since, he is cooperating with costumers like Atomic, Infineon, Volksbank Salzburg, Falkensteiner Hotels and Sparda Bank inter alia.
The artistic part is also not neglected and this is why Joachim Bergauer’s works are admired and favoured at exhibitions in Canada, France, Germany and Austria frequently.
Agencies like Ogilvy & Mather and Kiska invite the artist as an advisor to implement common worldwide campaigns (like KTM for example).
Joachim Bergauer is also working for the curatorship of journalists, the BFI and the WIFI as a consultant. He also has, just like Andreas H. Bitesnich, a important function in the master-class for photography and design.
The Photographer received the “Salzburger Landespreis for marketing and advertising” – the most famous award for advertising agencies in Salzburg – in the years 2004 and 2006 for the best advertising campaigns. Hasselblad Sweden is using Bergauer as a worldwide advertising medium
