Founder and Owner
I have long been interested in composition, design and aesthetic aspects. No wonder, then, that I have been passionate about photography since a young age. At 16, I was very proud to be photographing using an analogue single lens reflex camera, which my father gave me for my confirmation. Since then, I have been continually adding to my knowledge of the field of photography. Over the years, I attended many workshops and courses led by renowned photographers in my spare time and during the holidays. I then developed my photographic skills through individual study and, of course, lots of practice.
Today, I love nothing more than spending some time in wild and untouched nature. It could be a hike to a beautiful location in Switzerland, the wilderness of Alaska, the raw nature of Patagonia, or the originality of the African savannah – these are my favourites. I am passionate about photographing such natural paradises and the landscapes and wild animals to which they are home.
I have time and again been called back to southern Africa since my first visit there around 15 years ago. I was disappointed with the photos from my first trips so decided to dedicate my time to intensively learn about photography. In addition to learning about theory and attending courses and workshops with renowned photographers, I have been continually expanding my knowledge through many trips and excursions into the great outdoors.
I especially like photographing wild animals. Taking pictures of lions in the Kalahari or bears in Alaska is still a source of fascination for me to this day. One of my favourite experiences is a Walking Safari on foot, such as in Mana Pools National Park on the trail of the elephants. This allows you to get unbelievably close to nature. Encounters with animals still amaze me as much as my very first experience. I love looking at them, observing them and photographing them in their natural habitat. Striving for an image that perfectly encapsulates the situation is what spurs me on.
We select our photographers very carefully and pay close attention to both experience and personality. This means that our photo guides are not only top professional photographers but are also able to pass on their knowledge.
Many of our guides are living in the region in question and know it like the back of their hand. They will ensure that you feel at ease during the entire trip.
What our customers are saying
Iceland was my first tour with Amazing Views but definitely not the last. It was a great photo trip with interesting travel companions and great tour guides. Stefan and Fabio were always helpful, took their time with questions and you could tell that they are passionate about photography. Scenically, Iceland is amazing and has a lot to offer. We visited impressive waterfalls, barren rocky landscapes, black beaches, glaciers, a volcano (which unfortunately only smoked a bit but didn't spit fire at that moment), Icelandic horses, etc., etc.. One highlight was, of course, the northern lights. I was as happy as a little child about them. It really was a great week with lots of impressions and great photos.
It was my first tour with Amazing Views (and not my last). As a fan of wildlife photography, I got my money's worth. It was fascinating to observe the wild bears in the wild. Thomas' technical support was a great help for me as a beginner, and the exchange with the other members of the group was also extremely helpful. The organisation worked flawlessly, be it the transport or the accommodation in a smart guesthouse. To liven up the week, we also visited a cave and were able to use our skills there under difficult lighting conditions. All in all, the week was a huge success and Slovenia with its bears is definitely worth a trip. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
The trip was excellently prepared and organised down to the last detail. Everything worked out perfectly. The travel documentation was highly informative and comprehensive. Our photo tour leaders Jenny and Nick were excellent hosts, always very attentive, helpful and in a good mood. The atmosphere within the group was great. The trip will remain in my best memory.
As an auditor / organizer I have been trained for over 20 years to find problems and weaknesses, there was NOTHING to complain about on this photo tour! Organisation and individual support top notch. A special big thank you to the Guide Dan for the choice of the locations and the consideration of the respective weather conditions.
I booked this trip immediately after the cats of the Kalahari photo tour: the difference and contrast of both trips (Kalahari: desert with all the red and brown colour vs. Mashatu: rich green partly with yellow flower carpet) is fantastic! Very good support by Hannes and Thomas, who can also give experienced photographers helpful tips. Very comfortable lodge with excellent staff, especially the local guides.
The Lofoten Islands Photo Tour was great. Due to the individual tuition and coaching in a small group, everyone can benefit a lot, regardless of their level of knowledge. It is also ideal to be looked after by a local guide, as he can immediately adapt to the weather conditions and always finds a good spot - and of course he knows the insider tips.
