Verner Soler, an award-winning art director in the field of advertising, has long pursued his passion for photography. Verner was raised in a small village in the Swiss Alps where he learned to appreciate the natural composition of landscapes and the honest beauty of the working class while working alongside his parents on the farm. At 21, he moved to Los Angeles to expand his horizons. Photography became a way to stay connected to hisrural roots. Verner studied film and television at UCLA Extension and photography at SMC.
He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and son, whom he is teaching to speak “Romontsch,” the native language of the remote villages of the eastern Swiss Alps.
