What our clients say
The Zambia trip in June 2023 was marked by many great animal encounters and beautiful scenery. I especially remember a pair of leopards, about one year old, who were playing with each other and I even managed to take a picture of the female sailing over the male. Wonderful! Equally impressive, however, were the beautiful morning scenes. Antelopes and even lions presented themselves in the ground fog at sunrise! Once again, Thomas and Hannes took excellent care of us, and the local guides also did a good job. This makes us want to do more!
The photo trip Botswana up close exceeded all my expectations. I experienced and photographed countless unforgettable moments. Hannes' professional guidance was brilliant. The whole "surrounding" with a super lodge, extremely good safari guides and the cozy group made this trip the perfect experience. Thank you. I can only recommend this photo tour to everyone.
It was my first photo tour to Africa. The diverse - and thanks to the driving skills of the guides also up close - encounters in the private game reserve were impressive: leopards, cheetahs, lions, hyenas, jackals, elephants, giraffes, antelopes, zebras, monkeys, bee-eaters, eagles, vultures and much more. With Hannes Lochner we also had an excellent photo guide with us, who was able to share a lot of his experience with us. That makes you want to do more!
Amazing experiences with truly professional guides. Super nice wild-life at a close distance. Cool and impressive lodge and food. Think Tina Turner wrote your song: "Simply the best".
As usual, the tour was excellently organised. The lodge and the game reserve in southern Botswana are simply top. The game reserve has a great variety of species and a high density of predatory cats, which made the time pass (too) quickly. I can truly recommend this trip to anyone interested in wildlife.
The tour was planned and carried out professionally as usual. The passionate photographer Hannes Locher looked after us very well. I was thrilled by his passion for cats and his humorous manner. Gladly again!
The trip to the beautiful Kalahari was a dream, many animals, wonderful landscapes and moods. Hannes looked after us perfectly in his humorous way and helped us to take great pictures. Definitely recommended!
The smell of the first big rain after the dry season I will remember forever! And the pictures of it are in my photo album and in my heart. Pictures that have become even more unique thanks to Hannes Lochner. It is a privilege to discover such an exciting area as the Kalahari. Even more so when Hannes Lochner is there. He showed us with humor and patience countless photo tricks and we were able to benefit from his enormous knowledge about photography, animals and nature.

As always, excellently organized trip to the Kalahari with the guidance of Hannes Lochner. His knowledge of the Kalahari and photography gives even experienced wildlife photographers a final tip for a very special photo. Glad to travel at any time again with Hannes and Amazing Views.
I joined for this trip directly after the cats of the Kalahari: the contrasts of both trips (Kalahari: desert steppes in beige versus Mashatu: rich green partly with yellow flower carpet) are fantastic! Very good mentoring by Hannes and Thomas, who can give even experienced photographers a tip or two. Very comfortable lodge with excellent staff, especially the local guides are to be emphasized.
This was my seventh photo safari, but the first time during the rainy season. Seeing the different animals and birds in a green landscape is a unique experience. Thanks to the excellent guides from the lodge, who made sure that the rainy season had no negative impact on the number and quality of sightings of cats of prey, birds and other animals. The photo tour guidance by Hannes Lochner and Thomas was excellent, as usual for Amazing Views. Many thanks!
excellent organization everything worked smoothly- breath-taking camp with best food and loving hospitality - perfect driver chosen who took us through thick and thin and to the most beautiful places - an unforgettable journey
Since it was my first time on a photo safari, I was overwhelmed by the many impressions of the animals. The rainy season in Botswana was a pleasant travel time and the sight of the flower carpet was unique. The local driver and the guide were very keen to show us as many animals as possible. Thomas and Hannes Lochner always had good advice for taking pictures, thank you very much for the beautiful trip.
After Namibia, Botswana, India and Spitsbergen, "Untouched Africa" was my 5th trip with Amazing Views. I was totally thrilled again, the organization as well as the photographer James Gifford were extremely good. We were able to observe and photograph the animals - especially elephants - respectfully and yet from close up. Many thanks for unforgettable days.
Kerstin & Kristina
So far it was the most beautiful Africa trip with Amazing Views. So close to the animals, countless elephants, on a safari from early in the morning until late in the evening - it was simply a dream. Animals so close - you never forget that. And then in addition the best guide James at your side - and the adventure is perfect. Top organization from A (Amazing) - Z (Zimbabwe)!
Zimbabwe is an unforgettable experience, far away from mass tourism, with intense closeness to wild nature combined with exceptional hospitality in the lodges. James Gifford supported and inspired us all tirelessly with his vast experience of wildlife as well as his photographic skills. Now all our cameras are professionally set up, thank you James!
This was our first trip with Amazing Views and I can only say that it was very well organized. Hannes Lochner is a great photographer and an extremely likeable person. He showed us "his Kalahari", which is so different from the usual safari destinations. Many thanks to Hannes and the Amazing Views team.
Kristina & Kerstin
For the second time after 2019, we were able to travel to Namibia along with Amazing Views. Although Covid-19 made a lot of things more complicated, the organisation was smooth from A-Z. The Namib, the Dead Vlei, all the Oryx antelopes, helicopter flights, the countless evening moods were just fabulously great - and as a bonus we were virtually alone in many places. It couldn't have been better. And the Okonjima Game Reserve at the end was the absolute icing on the cake for us.
An excellently organised trip to the Kalahari with on-site support by the nature and wildlife photographer Hannes Lochner, who left no question unanswered and gave valuable tips on the respective camera model, the settings and the composition of the pictures. Pleasant accommodation, delicious food and time spent together rounded off the whole photo safari positively. Recommended for beginners as well as advanced photographers. Anytime again with Hannes Lochner and Amazing Views.
I have been to Botswana with Amazing Views before, I was also lucky enough to go on the first trip to Churchill to see the Polar Bear babies. All trips were unforgettable. Now again, to travel to Botswana during the rainy season was awesome for me. To photograph the animals between the lush green and yellow flowers, and to see them rolling around in it was fantastic. Plants, which I had thought to be dead in October, came back to life. Unique and an unforgettable experience. The trip was as usual, very well organized and everything went like clockwork. The lodge was super. Excellent support by Thomas and Hannes Lochner, who explained or showed with a lot of patience again and again the right adjustments and the right perspective. Not to forget the drivers and trackers who tried tirelessly to fulfil our wishes. I am thrilled. Many thanks to all.
As a repeat offender, I have already been on the road with Amazing Views several times! As always, the tour was very well organized. Expectations are exceeded again and again. Best guides guarantee for an unforgettable experience! Absolutely recommendable! - A big praise to Thomas and Jennifer! - Keep going!
A great trip over four outstanding, but also very different stations within the Okavango Delta. Both the driving and the photo guides provided unforgettable moments and helped with words and deeds to "shoot" fantastic photos. My rather high expectations were even exceeded. For a wonderful trip, many thanks to Amazing Views!
Reto & Marlene
"Amazing Views" lives up to its name. We took home unforgettable impressions from a varied, very well organized and exclusive tour to a fantastic wildlife area. Thomas and James led the group in a friendly and professional manner and knew how to respond to each participant individually. We felt very comfortable, even though the hyenas, hippos and elephants regularly visited our camp at night. Predicated as very recommendable ... actually a must
Sonja & Jürgen
We were back in Botswana after 30 years and felt wonderfully looked after by Thomas and James, and the whole team of Letaka Safaris. We would never have imagined such a great trip. From the competent photo and tour guide of James to the extraordinary beautiful campsites and the interaction with the nice fellow travellers, there was nothing to complain about. We can only recommend everyone to join this trip. To Amazing Views, you are top!
The Amazing Views have organized an absolutely great trip. Letaka Safaris offered a great organization. The rangers are very good drivers and very successful with their game drives. Their great knowledge in interpreting footprints and the perception and interpretation of animal sounds was terrific, so that we had many impressive moments while discovering this animal world in such a great landscape. With James, the whole thing was topped: an extremely good photographer, with a knowledge he was able to convey very well. I have profited enormously from him. His warm way of leading the group was absolutely terrific. A great trip with unique impressions and pure emotions. Thank you all for this experience, it is unforgettable.
A very well organized, "little" adventure which - fortunately away from the mass tourism streams - gave me many impressive, some touching and moving, several unique moments in the African wilderness. The photographer, James, not only has an excellent feeling for the motif and the right moment, but also for the different needs and requirements of the individual participants. All in all a successful trip, which not only fully met my expectations but in some aspects even exceeded them.
The trip was very well organized, and the accommodations were great. The guidance of James Gifford was again very good. He knows how to give you good tips in a pleasant way and makes every effort to ensure that everyone in the group gets their money's worth. The Bushwalks were a new but sensational experience for me. Getting close to a bull elephant at about 2 m and being able to take pictures will probably leave a lifelong impression on me. Many thanks to James and Amazing Views for this exciting trip!
I liked the photo tourUntouched Africa very much. It was top organized and excellently guided by James Gifford. The Victoria Falls are impressive and the richness of species in Hwange and Mana Pools is great. A highlight was a short bushwalk in Mana Pools, which made it possible to photograph a passing bull elephant from a distance of two meters! Many thanks to James and Amazing Views for this great trip!
Traveling with Amazing Views is the best. The most beautiful spots are discovered and photographed, and the coaching is unique. Each participant is picked up and promoted at his or her level. It was and is amazing with amazing views! Travelling with you has a huge potential for addiction. Hardly at home you want to book a new trip right away. You will not get rid of me so quickly. Sorry! 😉
On the Pantanal trip in July 2023, the biodiversity impressed me the most. The jaguars were great, lying in wait for caimans along the rivers and swimming across the river in front of us. Beautiful animals! But also impressive were the giant otters, which even put a jaguar to flight. We also encountered a swimming tapir. The many bird species - kingfishers, herons, giant storks, hawks, cormorants, etc. - always offered great motifs. - offered great motifs again and again. We were competently accompanied by Thomas and Marcos, who shared a lot of his knowledge about the animals with us. Everything was well organised. A rewarding trip!
We had to wait a long time before we could finally travel to Patagonia. But it was worth it in every respect. What an incredible 10 days we experienced in this unique landscape! Perfectly guided by Thomas Brühlmann, Cristina Harboe and the other local guides, we were able to let off steam photographically. But the highlight was definitely the 3 days of puma tracking. Here we were able to benefit from Rodrigo Moraga's many years of knowledge and photograph the animals at almost arm's length. I would love to go there again right away!
Amazing experience!! Thank you Amazing Views and Daisy G Gilardini for a top line photography experience. Daisy’s experience and helpfulness, her passion for a great photography experience made this trip so special. She is as genuine and nice as I hoped her to be and her professionalism is outstanding!
Our Churchill polar bear experience was incredible. Our photo guide taught us all so much and was able to help us all make sure to get some amazing photographs. I loved this trip so much that I am thinking about going back next year. Worth every penny!
New York - I would never have thought that I would be so fascinated to discover a new kind of photography in the midst of a crowd of people. To document a city in black and white under professional guidance is simply just so much fun!
Amazing Views is really worth of its name on this fantastic journey into the beauty and wilderness of Alaska! Starting with a variety of animals that we could observe, great landscapes and unique excursions...you went from one highlight to the next and when you thought: "More is not possible", the next highlight of the trip already came. Playing brown bear teenagers, who came a little bit closer, bald eagles in flight and very photogenic in the treetop, otters, seals, dolphins, whales, moose, foxes, caribous, black bears, beavers, puffins and much more we were allowed to admire and photograph in the animal kingdom. Among the landscapes, there were unique (early) morning moods, glaciers and lakes, foggy valleys and as a special gift, Mount Denali with all its splendour. And all this on land, on water and from the air. A memorable experience and a very special trip, with great people and the perfect organization and support by Thomas and Jeff! With Amazing Views anytime again. Thanks to the whole team!
Erwin & Pia
Alaska had been in the back of my mind for many years because of its vast photographic possibilities. Finally it worked out and we experienced such a unforgettable journey of superlatives. During our various trips to USA and also Canada we were constantly accompanied by warning signs for moss crossing, but never got to see one. Jeff and Thomas, especially Pia, were finally able to fulfil our wish and we experienced a wonderful morning in a moose area near Anchorage and were able to take pictures of the animals at close range. An unforgettable experience that we will never forget. To go into all the other highlights would go beyond the scope here. We are grateful that we were able to experience all this at our age.
The Alaska Into the wild photo tour was fantastic. Bears, sea otters, moose, caribous and much more could be photographed at close range. The trip was not limited to wildlife and landscape photography was not neglected. Special thanks to Jeff Schultz. His knowledge, experience and helpfulness made the trip an unforgettable experience. I can only recommend this photo tour!
WOW! It was sensory overload and I'm still processing everything that I saw and experienced. I just finished doing a first look at my photos (over 12,000) and am re-living the exceptional tour. Accommodations, food, leadership and the weather (most of the time) were the best possible. So many bears and so close. Seeing all of Denali for several days was a minor miracle. Flying up to it is beyond words. How can I describe the thrill of the helicopter ride to the glaciers, the boat trip on Prince William Sound with all the wildlife we saw and its gorgeous scenery, Lake Clark with its many bears and their crazy behavior, Denali Camp with its pristine beauty, gourmet food, much wildlife and the crazy road getting there? And the group I was with became instant friends of mine who I already miss. It was a trip I'll remember the rest of my life. Thank you, Amazing Views!
Alaska - Into the wild was an unforgettable journey for me, even though I don't photograph at all. Highlights after highlights, breath-taking landscapes alternated with incredible animal encounters. We saw bears, moose, sea otters, porpoises, humpback whales....., some of them from close range. In addition, the organisation both before and on site was excellent, the accommodations were great and with Jeff Schultz we had a photographer at our side who was not only familiar with the area and always friendly and helpful, but also made many experiences possible for us through his knowledge and experience. Although I was a bit sceptical in advance if this trip is really recommendable for non-photographers, I did not regret my participation in the trip for a minute and I firmly believe that this was not my last trip with Amazing Views.
I am still completely blown away that I had a chance to experience this breath-taking, wild beauty of nature. And watching the King of the Arctic in his natural environment is the crowning glory. This trip was rounded off by perfect organisation and execution, first class food, super nice crew and really great tips from the experienced nature photographer Daisy Gilardini and Thomas from Amazing Views, who delivered a perfect all-round carefree package for me. Sorry Thomas, if I have to repeat myself again and again: THANK YOU VERY MUCH to you and Jennifer for making such trips possible!!! I would like to be part of this journey once again.
The polar bear photo safari with Daisy was a once in a lifetime wonder. Seeing a polar bear and her cubs emerge from their den and later begin their long journey to the Bay was more emotional than I expected. This was the best wildlife experience I have ever had.
I learned to appreciate Daisy very much, not only as a photographer, but also as a person. Once in a lifetime experience, got a deep insight into the polar bear family life, got to admire the polar bears and fluffy, cute cubs playing in the snow! Among the many photos there are some really great pictures, which thanks to Daisy. It was a pleasure. Thanks a lot for the great days!
Despite initial doubts about weather conditions (cold / wind) and hand baggage regulations of the US companies, the whole trip proved to be an excellent opportunity to follow & observe a polar bear mother. Thanks to the peace and quiet and support from Daisy who made that possible. The outermost cold protection suits including shoes were great. An impressive experience that will stay vivid for a long time.
The tours are always super organized by Jennifer and Thomas! I especially liked this tour, because you experience the nature of South Africa and Botswana in its unspoiled form. The animals are not on display, you have to look for them / discover them. But you get to see all the animals, up close and personal. Also, the season with occasional thunderstorms and wildflower carpets has its special charm. Absolutely recommended!
Kristina & Kerstin
Alaska - Into the Wild was very much to our liking, it was a scenically and photographically varied trip. There is something for everyone, whether on land, from the air or on the water. Unbelievable landscapes, a fantastic sunrises and animal encounters (especially the bears) that you won't forget so quickly. Jeff Schultz is a wonderful photo travel companion; warm, calm, patient and always helpful. A really great person and perfect choice.
I had a dream, and it came true! Svalbard with Jenny and Daisy can hardly be 'topped'. The organisation- incl. consideration of my 'special handicaps' was just great. In addition, the team on board was extremely customer oriented. Thus we experienced indescribable photo events from day to day.
Philip & Barbara
The trip to Spitsbergen with its unspoilt landscape, abundance of animals and the fascinating play of lights was a matter of the heart. We were able to experience a lot on this perfectly organized trip. The accommodation on the ship was perfect and the excursion mode fully met our taste. Among the many photos there are a few great pictures, which are a joy thanks to Jenny and Daisy. Many thanks for the great days Philipp & Barbara.
Svalbard, Arctic, polar bears, glaciers, walruses, birds, and pure nature. This trip is unforgettable, but not only because of the nature, the animal and bird life and the silence and tranquillity of this area, but also because of the amazing view and One Ocean. Everything just fits: the ship, the crew, the staff of One Ocean, who left no question unanswered, were always helpful, cheerful and obliging. Especially THANKS to Jenny Brühlmann and Daisy Gilardini. Not only do they have a profound knowledge of photography and the area, they are also very good at communicating it, and they managed to turn me from a non-photographer to a proud owner of a camera and have total fun taking pictures. I have learned to appreciate both of them very much, not only as photographers and tour guides, but also as people.
A beautiful country with open, friendly and sociable people. There were so many new impressions and photo motives every day that after a short time the everyday life seemed far away. Jenny and the local tour guide organized everything super and showed us participants many beautiful places and it allowed us to concentrate on the situation and on taking pictures. A great trip with Amazing Views through Myanmar, I can only recommend it to everyone!
Jürgen & Sonja
We found Jenny’ s kind, calm & competent support, Organization of the buses and hotels very good. Also, the 2 days with the friendly, dedicated professional photographers gave us a lot. The golden rock was overwhelming, also because we had 2 days’ time. Unforeseen encounters with a village festival or the nuns were impressive.
Myanmar is definitely worth a trip for a photographer. For the duration of the tour the number of stops is appropriate and there is enough time for taking pictures. The people are great - if you give them a smile, you will get a smile back. I hope that it will stay like that. The group size with a maximum of 8 people is also perfect for taking pictures with the local photo professionals. An absolute highlight is the balloon flight over Bagan, simply unforgettable.
Extensive journey. Impressive were not only the buildings and nature, but above all the friendly, open and sociable people. Exciting were also the two days with local professional photographers, who gave insights into their work. The active teaching on the second day was also instructive and stimulating.
Experiencing Provence with great, like-minded people was a real highlight. The endless rolling purple fields are truly a feast for the eyes and the associated fragrance simply beguiling. A real benefit for participants is the shared enthusiasm for photography, the trained eye for extraordinary motifs and last but not least, the great commitment of the tour guide, who spares no effort and leaves nothing to chance in order to offer the best that is possible on location. A perfectly organised photo trip down to the last detail. Jenny personally visited the many beautiful lavender locations the day before our arrival and enabled us to photograph the most beautiful fields far and wide, at the best time and in the best light. This photo trip is definitely recommendable. Thank you Amazing Views.
The trip to Tenerife is worthwhile for lovers of coastal and mountain landscapes, sunsets and sunrises and, of course, star photography. The selected hotels are very centrally located, the journey to the photo spots takes usually about an hour because of the very hilly landscape. The photo guides Ralf and Fabio, who were helpful in every respect, reacted with great flexibility to the very changeable conditions, so that we came back not only with pictures of the coasts, mountains and sunrises and sunsets, but also with top pictures of the Milky Way. The fantastic group also bridged the inevitable waiting times in a very entertaining way.
Those who do not shy away from windy, damp and chilly weather will be rewarded with some of the most spectacular, wild and lonely coastal landscapes in Europe. Bernard, the professional photographer and guide from Ireland and profound connoisseur of the Faroe Islands, and Jenny Brühlmann from Amazing Views are the best guarantee that every participant will take home the maximum of experiences and great pictures. The fact that fun is not forgotten, is the icing on the cake.
My fifth trip to the Outer Hebrides with Amazing Views confirmed once again that the total package offered (photo spots, hotel, local guide, a perfect group and last but not least Jenny as "tour guide") is hard to top. Starting with the comprehensive information before the trip, the daily organisation of the photo spots which, thanks to the local guide, were not easy due to the constantly changing weather conditions, the consistent and always available support of Jenny and Nick, the comfortable and safe transport from the hotel to the photo spots and the hotel itself (ambiance and culinary), this trip is an experience of a special kind.
Stunning nature and fantastic light showed me the beauty of the Isle of Skye and brought me much joy and satisfaction with the great organized trip in the North of Scotland. I never thought I would be able to take such beautiful photos. This is of course thanks to our photo leader Nick, who contributed with a lot of local knowledge and long photo experience. Although it was an intense few days, I would recommend the trip to anyone.
It was my first photo trip and definitely not the last! For me it was an unforgettable experience. From the beginning to the end of the trip, we were accompanied by Jenny and Nick, who were always helpful and friendly. I did not have that much photography experience yet and was able to learn an incredible amount of new things from them during this week. They were able to pass on their photography knowledge to me in an understandable way. With their help, I was able to achieve the goals I had set myself before the trip. Our accommodation also left nothing to be desired! In my opinion, the fantastic dinner that we were able to enjoy every evening is especially worth mentioning! It was unbelievable what the three ladies conjured up in the kitchen every day. Every evening, I was looking forward to end the day with the whole group and great food. My conclusion: It was worth every cent and I would book immediately again another trip with Amazing Views!
This photo trip was top notch in all aspects - the guides, the food, the locations, the group. What more could you ask for?
The Outer Hebrides photo trip was my fourth trip with Amazing Views and my expectations were exceeded yet again, especially on this trip. In short, it was an unforgettable photographic experience week with a great and fun group in a time-honoured Highland Lodge with excellent cuisine! Jenny and Nick were always on hand with their photographic knowledge to answer any questions we had. Depending on the weather, time of day and light conditions, Nick took us to wonderful and secluded photo spots. And what I really appreciated: The perfect preparation and follow-up of the photo trips by Amazing Views! Many thanks to Jenny and Nick for the unforgettable week!
Thanks to Jenny and Cody, despite the bad weather, we were always in the place where the sun provided a great lighting atmosphere for a short time. Jenny and Cody are a great team who took everything off our hands so that we could concentrate on taking pictures. The tips and tricks on image composition and editing were also very valuable. I can highly recommend the photo trip to Lofoten with Amazing Views. I look forward to the next photo trip with you.
The name "Amazing Views" was programme and true in every aspect. Everything was perfect, from the travel details & documents and the organisation of the trip to the choice of accommodation, the tour guide and the choice of locations. Of course, the weather and the chosen time of the tour in autumn played a big role. And they suited the impeccably organised photo tour perfectly. The size of the group was very pleasant and allowed everyone to be looked after according to their individual needs. Suggestions and wishes of the participants were also taken into account. I can recommend a photo tour with Amazing Views to the island of Senja in autumn in every aspect, although basic photographic knowledge and a good physical condition are an advantage.
I have already in past done some excellent trips and workshops with Amazing Views. However, the Photo expedition to Spitsbergen took it to the next level. Completely professionally managed - photographically as well as culinary and organisationally- we spent 10 intense days on board the cosy Origo. Svalbard offers countless wonderful motifs for both wildlife and landscape photographers. The north keeps me under its spell!
A successful photo trip, great photo spots and perfect timing. Thanks to Jenny's good preparation, we were always in the right place at the right time. The motifs were well worth getting up early for. Highly recommended!
This was my second booking with Amazing Views and I highly recommend them! Jennifer handled the uncertainty of the lavender being harvested early with grace and professionalism. It was a great trip.
The Svalbard tour with Amazing Views gave us a close-up immersion into the wildlife world that I didn't think was possible. When I signed up for this trip I thought, so few days for so much money. That changed completely. Every single day seemed like a fulfilled eternity. It was hard to believe how every sense of time dissolved. We were in this incredibly special world, in Spitsbergen, for a long, long time.
Daisy Gilardini is a first class photographer and an excellent photography instructor. She was able to explain some photographic principles to me in a way that I could understand and improve my photos. Her husband, David McEown is a gifted painter. He was painting every day during our trip and also was available to support me during a couple challenging landings. Daisy and David are two of the most talented and creative trip leaders I have met and I am fortunate to have traveled with them.
Daisy Gilardini supported by the outstanding Nansen Polar Expeditions team headed by Audun and Matin delivered a unique and one of kind "outstanding" photo experience. The MV Villa is a safe and secure ship for searching ice filled waters, and with superb meals served daily. Together with no set itinerary our expedition was truly that ---the guide and Daisy consulted daily on where to go to provide us the finest photo opportunities.
Amazing Views, Nansen Polar Expeditions, Daisy Gilardini and David McEown provided a great experience. Thank you to the team for making our experience so exceptional and providing optimal opportunity for capturing the wonderful wildlife from the best possible vantage points. This trip is one that will be remembered for its high standards that were always met.
Also on my third photo trip with Amazing Views, my expectations were fully met. Exciting photo spots, great company and exchange with two professional photographers, exchange with like-minded people, tutorials and individual image discussions etc. were all part of the package. Theory and practice were perfect for me. I really enjoyed the journey from east to west in northern Spain. The four locations offered many photo sessions in nature by the sea, with enough free space to photograph (without other tourists). Last but not least and very important, the group dynamic was excellent. Perfect information to prepare the trip as well as the PDF "Landscape Photography" is very helpful and important for me. Flawless organisation (on the road with group chats) and comfortable hotels close to the photo spots. The photographic support (and culinary) by Jenny and Fabio was guaranteed at all times. Many heartfelt thanks!
Perfectly organised photo tour in two vehicles with comfortable space. No effort was spared to optimise the photographic opportunities.
"Street photography starts at the end of your comfort zone" - This was the first sentence of Jens Krauer, course instructor, at the introduction to our course in Amsterdam. How true! During four often long days, we slowly left our comfort zone, hesitant and shy at first, and ventured further and further. Thanks to the skilful methodology and didactics of Jens, who confronted us daily with ever new, ever more challenging tasks, we gained confidence and self-assurance. By the end, we had grasped the essence of street photography and were already able to take some beautiful shots. Jens was an excellent and patient teacher who had brought us considerably further in terms of image composition and creativity. I really got an appetite for street photography after the course!
Isabella & Stefan
What a fantastic journey. The Faroe Islands offers incredible photo opportunities: rugged cliffs, waterfalls, blue fjords, wild and rugged coasts, and ever-changing weather and light. Together with the perfect organisation by Amazing Views and the friendly tour guiding by Jenny and Bernard, this was an unforgettable week. I would book again immediately.
Christiane & Sascha
In April 2022, I was on the photo expedition around Svalbard with my husband on the M/S Virgo. An absolutely extraordinary journey with great impressions of a fantastic Arctic and touching wildlife encounters that we will not forget for a long time. We think especially of the Zodiac trip lasting several hours, on which we were able to experience very relaxed and also curious polar bear, the great light moods in the evening and night hours, but also the trips with walrus encounters during snowfall in the backlight, which bathed the flakes in an organ-coloured light and conjured up a very special mood in the picture. We even had the opportunity to drive to the pack ice edge and do an excursion on the pack ice, which is probably not an everyday experience. A big thank you goes to Jenny and Daisy for the excellent supervision. They always had an open ear for the participants, questions were always gladly answered and fun was never neglected. The M/S Virgo is an absolutely brilliant "starting point" for photo expeditions, as everything is very well adapted to the needs of photographers. Another plus point were the guides / Zodiac drivers, who are also professional photographers and always knew how to approach destinations in such a way that everyone has the opportunity to take home their photos of the spots / wildlife. This was completed by lectures during the trip and by the spontaneity of the crew. If necessary, the route was even changed several times a day, just as it was best for the participants. As I participated the trip as a photographer and my husband accompanied the trip as a non-photographer, we were initially sceptical about what it would be like for a partner travelling with a group of photographers. We were very pleasantly surprised, he was very well integrated by Jenny, Daisy, the guides and the fellow travellers and certainly had as much fun as I did. We think back to the trip very often and always say to ourselves "What all we were able to experience there".... Thank you again!
I had to wait 2 years for this workshop. But it was worth it. Ireland and its landscapes are simply beautiful. The whole thing was rounded off by a friendly group and great guides who kept us on our toes. Despite lack of sleep, we arrived home happy, satisfied and with many great impressions and pictures. A big thank you to Jenny and Bernard for an all-round successful trip!
I have been dreaming of the Milky Way on the Teide and perfect pictures of it for several years. Now my dream was more than fulfilled thanks to the great trip with Amazing View, which offered much more than "just" the Teide. It was simply a perfectly organised trip with Jenny and Fabio looking after all the participants, which was top class. I have never seen guides unpack their cameras first then when all participants have found a very good position for their picture. Even if it took a while, they supported, helped and waited patiently until all participants* were placed. In difficult terrain Jenny and Fabio were always there to help the weaker ones overcome their fears or find a firm footing. Simply great this continuous support! Photographically, the trip was a poem of superlatives. The photographic themes were wide-ranging and so there was enough time for everyone to photograph the different themes in the best possible way. Then there was Fabio Antenore. He was not only the workshop leader but also an extremely likeable companion and comrade with a great sense of humour. He imparted his knowledge about timeblending with great joy and thus introduced us - not only the enthusiasts among us - to the subject with great skills. And also our knowledge grew daily almost without us noticing. Will I go on a trip with Fabio and Amazing Views again? Yes, anytime anywhere! Thank you Jenny and Fabio for this wonderful adventure.
Top instructors and top organisation! You rarely see such a dedication to the customer and desire to full-fill all the wishes.
I had a dream; to see and photograph a polar bear in the wild once in my life. So I set out on this adventure with Amazing Views. What I experienced is unsurpassable: accompanying and photographing a polar bear in the Zodic....it was a magical moment that turned into hours!!!! In addition I also had the chance to photograph walruses, sea lions and beautiful landscapes. My big thanks go to Jenny and Daisy for their so benevolent way of accompanying me and to the whole crew of the Virgo. The 10 days went by in a flash and I can only say THANK YOU and my dream came true.
Claudio & Andrea
Like all tours with Amazing Views, this tour was perfectly organised. We were super well looked after by Jenny and Daisy, who had endless time and patience for us, not only when taking pictures, but also when editing them. The ship (the MS Virgo) is ideal for photographers. The newly renovated rooms are very nice and functional with plenty of space for all the winter clothes. But the hammer is the lounge, which is ideally suited to our needs. Enough space for everyone with their laptops, power sockets everywhere, a big TV for picture meetings and presentations, and always enough pastries to keep our lines in shape. The Zodiac drivers were also responsible for scanning the horizon literally around the clock for interesting wildlife. The fact that these two are also full-time professional photographers was of course great, as it meant we were looked after even better and they also knew exactly how to position the Zodiac so that everyone got their picture. All in all, this trip easily exceeded our expectations.
The photo tour "Wild Scotland" has the right name. We experienced a week with weather typical for this region. Overcast skies, sunshine in between, dense fog in the mountains and short heavy rain showers with strong winds. It was a good opportunity to test out the waterproof and windproof clothing. The tour was well organised and everything worked well. Ralf led the tour prudently with a lot of humour, constantly coordinating with Nick, the local photographer, in choosing the next photo stop. They reacted flexibly to the changing weather. Both supported the participants very well in photo-technical questions and Nick, thanks to his very good local knowledge, was able to draw our attention to small details in the composition of the picture. The photo tour is recommended for photographers who want to experience the wild nature of Scotland and especially the beautiful Isle of Skye.
Simply excellent, unsurpassed!!! My compliments! Our guides Jenny and Bernard harmonised in an exemplary way, everything was well organised. Both were able to motivate and stimulate excellently and gave the best support. Without question: a unique, highly exciting, fantastic and unforgettable photo tour! Tour guiding which cannot be beaten. An organisation without bad luck, breakdowns or mishaps. A Faroe Islands tour with Jenny and Bernard >> you have to strike... immediately!
When the two natural phenomena of the Faroe Islands and Bernard Geraghty comes together, a fantastic photo tour is guaranteed! The experience was garnished with a great group and as always it was perfectly organised by Amazing Views. Thank you very much for another great photo tour!
The tour was super organised and I felt very comfortable. In our exciting and interesting Highland Lodge we were excellently spoiled with fresh and local food by the three wonderful cooks. Above all, of course, we were accompanied, looked after and supported photographically in a great way. The daily planning was always adapted to the weather/light and our wishes. Rough landscapes, white sandy beaches, 'wild' ponies, Highland cows, lighthouses, ruins and much more. Jenny and Nick put a lot of effort to give us the best possible experience. On top of that we had a great group. I had fun and learned a lot of new things. It was a great week in the Outer Hebrides!
Do you want to experience a great tour where you can fully concentrate on photography and experience wonderful moments? Then Amazing Views is the right one for you. On our Lofoten tour everything was perfectly organised. We were wonderfully looked after and cared for by Jenny and Cody throughout the trip. Thanks to them we were able to make the best out of the different weather conditions. As a great bonus, I was able to make wonderful new friends during this week. Conclusion: We had a wonderful time with many unique pictures....you are amazing.
Jenny and Nick passed on their immense knowledge of photography in an understandable way. We were guided to several beautiful, secluded photo spots every day and were able to capture unforgettable moments in pictures. I can unreservedly recommend the tour to the Outer Hebrides - also from a culinary point of view.
The photo tour on Lewis and Harris was simply great. The lodge on a secluded inlet was unique. Three ladies spoiled us with local specialities from the sea and from their own garden. The photo spots were varied, from Caribbean beaches to picturesque cliffs to abandoned houses. The supervision by Jenny, even apart from the photography, was super, she took care of everyone and everything. The mixed group of participants rounded it all off and so I spent an unforgettable week on the island. I was very satisfied with the photo tour guides. We didn't have to worry about anything. Jenny and Nick chose the photo spots depending on the weather, time of day and light and were there to help us with advice and action. Even special requests like the Highland cows or a visit to an old cemetery were fulfilled. Amazing Views is absolutely recommendable! Whether for an evening workshop or a photo trip, we would be happy to come back again and again!
Rugged mountains dropping steeply to the sea, deep fjords, red, yellow and white houses - a breathtaking landscape. Our pros Mel, Cody and Sven made sure we were in the right place at the right time, despite the very changeable, challenging weather, and kept spirits high throughout.
The photo trip "Slovenia Autumn Colours" was my second trip with Amazing Views and certainly not my last. Jenny and Dan were always available to answer our questions with their photographic knowledge. Thanks to the small group, the support was individually tailored to the participants. Dan, the local guide, had the foresight to adjust the photo spots to coming weather conditions. For example, excellent photos were taken in the Soca Valley during a rainy afternoon. Dan led us to photo locations with the best perspective on the wild Soca and I always felt safe with him as my mountain guide. This photo trip will remain within my best memories, and I thank Jenny and Dan very much for their professional and sympathetic company.
Hanni & Peter
We travelled with Amazing Views for the first time and were completely satisfied. No empty promises are made, and the focus is really on you as a customer. Dan took us to places we would hardly have found on our own. Dan and Jennifer were always there to help and advise us, and questions were answered competently. A big thank you to Jennifer and Dan.
I can only recommend photo tours with Amazing Views. Everything is always perfectly organised, they react spontaneously to weather, changing conditions and wishes, the tour guides are always top-notch, and you don't just feel like a customer but part of a big family with the same interests.
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.
We had great experiences with a total of 8 bears over three days - a good yield, considering that the bears do not appear at the push of a button! Thomas was a confident guide and the atmosphere among us participants was good and relaxed. Slovenianbears did a good job of organising the bear afternoons in the Hides. We had to bring the patience ourselves.... I liked the accommodation at Ana's, the food was good and plentiful. I found the excursions in the morning (underground lake, caves etc.) interesting, they gave us a good insight into the region (only the eagle owls didn't want to show up despite digital calls). There is nothing to complain about! - Bear-strong journey with AMAZING VIEWS to the bears in Slovenia!
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)
Personal, professionally guided photo tour where I felt very well looked after. The tour guide was always available with tips and tricks for questions or assistance. Fun and cosiness were not neglected. Top choice of spots and accommodation. The guide went to incredible lengths to ensure that we found the best conditions.
Beautiful spots, always responding immediately to the changes. Good mix of photography, having fun, eating and drinking. Necessary support is given, questions are answered. As always a great experience and Ireland is always worth a trip.
The trip was excellently prepared and organized from the beginning to the very last detail. Everything worked out perfectly. The travel documentation was very informative and comprehensive. Our companions Jenny and Nick were excellent hosts, always very attentive, helpful and in a good mood. The atmosphere within the group was great, also thanks to our companions. The trip will remain in my best memories.
This was my 2nd trip with Amazing Views and I enjoyed again very much. Jenny and Dan were very dedicated photo tour guides who showed us the beauties of Slovenia and always supported us to capture them with our cameras. It was a great week with nice people.
As an auditor / organizer I have been trained for over 20 years to find problems / errors / weaknesses, and there was absolutely NOTHING to complain! Organisation and individual support were top. A special big praise to the guide Dan for the choice of the locations and the consideration of the upcoming weather conditions. When even the photo guides Dan and Jennifer unpack their lenses, it means something.
For me it was the first trip with Amazing Views and I am totally thrilled. The trip was super nice and decorated with many beautiful impressions. The support & guiding by Jenny and Dan was top. I will definitely travel again with them. See you soon and thanks for everything.
Lofoten is always worth a visit, but autumn is a special season with great colours - not only in the sky in the form of northern lights. We were always guided to dreamlike, partly hidden places in the best possible light and could benefit a lot from the knowledge of Cody and Jenny. A successful week, which unfortunately went by way too fast.
The photo trip to the Lofoten was great. Because of the individual care in a small group, everyone was able to benefit a lot, regardless of their level of knowledge. It is also ideal to be accompanied by a local guide, who can immediately adapt to the weather conditions and can always find a good spot - and of course he knows the insider tips.
To photograph the Lofoten in bright autumn colours, the changing moods in the morning and in the evening and the northern lights at night were simply uniquely beautiful. Jenny Brühlmann and Cody Duncan helped us with advices and tips and drove us to the very best photo locations. We could just get started and enjoy. Cody knew many special corners and spots, which produced wonderful pictures.
If you want to concentrate on photography, Amazing views is the right provider. The combination of a Swiss tour guide/photographer and professional photographer on location is ideal. It guarantees that, in addition to imparting photographic knowledge, the physical well-being is also taken care of. I am and will remain a repeat offender.
The photo trip was excellently organized. The local Cody Duncan always found the most beautiful locations with the best light. Also special needs were taken into consideration very well. The group and the arrangements fit perfectly together. As a summary; a great trip, many thanks to Jenny and Amazing Views.
All in all a great photo tour! The area was great, the spots were all well chosen and all participants were flexible, so that weather conditions could be taken into account. Jenni and Fabio were more than competent guides, who were always responsive to us participants and made the trip a great experience.
Many thanks to Amazing Views and Fabio Antenore. As a beginner within landscape photography, I was able to learn a lot about image design and post processing from Fabio. I can highly recommend this photo tour for beginners as well as for advanced photographers.
Franz & Heidi
As always, everything was super well organized. Jenny gave her everything. We had a wonderful and eventful week in the Dolomites with lots of nature, peace, silence, some rain, mystical Three Peaks fog, wonderful sunny days with sunrise and sunset and clear nights with starry skies. The small group of eight people made the tour very flexible and individual. Many thanks for the whole group for the good time!
Ireland - Kerry, Dingle & Wicklow I can highly recommend for landscape photographers. The support by Jenny and Bernard was great. Bernard, the photographer from Ireland, led us to many enchanted places that you would never find as a tourist. The visit in a rustic pub was very funny. Our group harmonized very well. Unfortunately the week was over way too quickly. We will gladly be back with Amazing Views again another time.
Beautiful destination, extremely aesthetic landscape. Due to the rapidly changing conditions, there are atmospheric shots in the morning and evening. Good small group size with different characters, was happy to get to know all of them. Top organized and personally attended by the owner. I felt that I was in the best hands. Enchantingly charming.
All good things come in threes – after experiencing Scotland, Croatia/Slovenia, this is absolutely true for the Ireland tour to Kerry, Dingle & Wicklow! Each of these areas offers something for everyone and even if two of them are very similar, they all have their own charm. If you have a guide with you who not only knows his trade, knows the country like the back of his hand, coupled with a great group of different people who nevertheless fit together very well, then the recipe for a great week in an incredibly beautiful landscape is perfect! By the way, the saying would have to be extended in this case: all good things come in threes - and even more! Ireland, Jenny & Bernard, we'll see you again, a Guiness (I'll stick to the pale ;)) on it!
Monika & Hans
Jenny and Fabio carried out an exciting and photographically impressive journey with excellent organisation and almost loving on-site support in a region that is not yet photographically well known. And we returned home with many impressive photos. This will certainly not be our last trip with Amazing Views. A very big thank you.
Absolutely professionally planned and organized and at the same time the necessary relaxed atmosphere for an unforgettable trip! I would recommend it to anyone who really wants to make progress.
The organization was flawless and the management by Dan and Jenny was great. They always responded to the needs of all participants and we were always guided to great photo spots. I felt very comfortable.
The trip was beautifully arranged in terms of motives, and we stayed overnight in well-kept, charming accommodations. Technically, I learned something important despite several years of photographic experience. Also a big thank you to Jenny and Dan for all the kilometres they covered by car and on foot to fulfil all wishes.
It was my first trip to Scotland, but definitely not the last! As a part-time press & event photographer, my concern with photo tours is not so much to be supported by the photographers, but to be in the right place at the right time. The group also significantly increases the motivation for getting up early. The local photographers Nick (Wild Scotland) and Marcus (Outer Hebrides) knows their region, they know exactly which photo spots work best in which weather and they also share their knowledge. The support by Jenny and one of the two local photo guides was sensational, communicative and always trying to bring out the best for the participants. My expectations were exceeded by far, even as an event photographer I was able to learn a lot in landscape photography thanks to the support. Thank you very much for these two photo tours in breath-taking Scotland. I will be gladly back with Amazing Views.
The trip to the Outer Hebrides has far exceeded my expectations. Not only is this one of the most charming landscapes I have ever visited, but the journey is rounded off by a time-honoured manor house where we resided and where we were treated with the most delicious food. I would like to emphasize the sensational care by Jenny and Marcus, the two photo guides who accompanied us. Both of them were always there for us participants, answered our questions or actively supported us in taking pictures so that we could take beautiful photos home with us. They themselves were photographically totally reserved. This is something I have not experienced with other photo tours. Even between the trips they both took care of us, e.g. discussing theoretical questions or helping with editing in Lightroom. THANK YOU and I am already looking forward to the next trip with Amazing Views!
The photo tour was perfectly organized right from the beginning, already the detailed information before the start of the tour indicated for an excellent organization. The daily planning, adapted to weather conditions and the interests of us photographers left nothing to be desired and the beauty of the landscapes contributed the rest. We always had the feeling that Jennifer and Nick wanted to bring out the best for the participants and we were always reminded to ask questions, get information and express wishes. Personally, I always felt very comfortable and in good hands, had fun taking pictures and certainly learned a lot. The "camp frenzy" also didn't come up because of the harmonious group - my conclusion: I'm any time happy to travel again with Amazing Views!
This fantastic photo week in the Scottish Highlands and on the Isle of Skye will remain in my positive memories for a long time. I rarely get so much good photo material together in one week. The support by Jenny and Nick was very pleasant and professional. They led us to unique photo spots and passed on their photo knowledge in a pleasant way. I was able to profit a lot and refine my photo technique. I was completely satisfied and would go on a photo tour with Amazing Views again anytime.
In May I was in Scotland for the first time ever on an organized photo tour. Not only did I enjoy the breath-taking landscapes, but also the trip and its organisation was just perfect for me and met or exceeded all expectations. It is unbelievable with what commitment and passion the two photographers/guides Jennifer & Nick are working and putting their shoulders to the wheel. The planning is highly professional and everything is adjusted to the right light and weather conditions. If the weather did not play along, we reorganized and looked for other spots. It was an incredibly great and learning week together with other photo enthusiasts and we had a lot of fun.
The procedure was excellently organized and the spots were very well chosen. I appreciated the very good accompanying comments of Jenny on the shots. The motivation for getting up early was increased considerably by the group, I couldn't have done it alone. I am aiming for another workshop.
An unforgettable week! The trip was excellently organized and the selection of the photo locations was very successful. As a beginner I was always supported by Jenny or Bernard in a competent, helpful and patient way and I also got many helpful tips. Many thanks for this great week in beautiful Ireland.
Perfect organisation, motivated and motivating photo tour guides with profound knowledge of the place, comfortable vehicles with sufficient storage space, nice and like-minded fellow travellers - this is exactly how an optimal photo tour is designed.
Ireland, the "green island", fascinated me with its breath-taking landscapes. I could not get enough of the many facets of the green colour, the steep cliffs, the picturesque lighthouses and the countless sheep pastures. In short: My memory card was glowing... The perfect organisation and supervision by Jenny and Bernard made this trip an unforgettable, instructive and entertaining experience. A big thank you for the great trip.
The variety of landscapes and the pure nature in the north of the island was very impressive and offered countless photo motives. I was not only fascinated by the beautiful landscapes, but also by the energy, passion and great commitment of the two photographers/guides Jennifer and Bernard. Thanks to their professional planning and organisation we were able to photograph/explore the beautiful locations of the region under the best possible weather and light conditions. We experienced so much during this week, time flew by. Even as an ambitious photographer I was able to learn a lot and always felt as in good hands. It was simply fun. Thanks a lot!
Well prepared trip, carefully selected spots. Despite of not always optimal weather conditions, good and fast respond to the conditions and wishes of the participants. Great and instructive trip, and pleasant supervision by Jenny and Bernard.
The Lofoten photo tour was an impressive experience. The combination of winter landscape with mountains and northern lights is unique and very impressive. Thanks to the expert supervision of photo professional Cody Duncan, fantastic pictures are no coincidence. The perfect organisation by Jennifer Brühlmann also contributed to the success of the trip. Thank you both very much and good luck!
TOP organized trip with 2 highly motivated and talented guides, who gave everything for their clients. I am very satisfied, and I am sure I will book again! This is exactly how a photo tour should be designed. And then once a northern light up in the sky. Great!
Fantastic journey. Excellent organization. Excellent selected locations, Jenny and Cody are excellent photographers and were able to pass on their knowledge about photography very well with many tips & tricks. I can only recommend Amazing Views... and I hope ..see you soon !
From our initial enquiry to our return, the service from Amazing Views has been amazing. The guides’ knowledge and expertise helped us novices to get out of auto mode and produce landscape photos I’ve never had have been able to do on my own. The accommodation were both cosy and comfortable and perfectly situated. Would definitely go on another amazing views adventure
This photo tour to Lofoten has exceeded my imagination. The organisation was superb, as was the accommodation, guidance and instruction. I would very much recommend Amazing Views for any photographer wishing to experience this beautiful place.
Amazing views, the name says it all: unforgettable, impressive hotspots are targeted. The photographers help to put the objects in the right light and perspective. The trips are perfectly organized. Individual wishes are taken into account. Boredom is unknown on these trips; you are on the road day and night. Wonderful memories and great pictures are brought home.
Once again, a trip excellently organized by Jenny! With not always easy weather, Jenny and Cody always put together a great program for the day and spontaneously adapted it to the outside conditions. Whenever possible we took pictures at known or less known places on Lofoten. Unfortunately, rain, snow and wind made this impossible on some days. We used the time for joint photo reviews of our pictures, discussed and debated the composition and development and learned a lot in the process.
This is my first time in Scotland, and I am simply thrilled. The tour was top organized by Jenny and very professionally guided by Nick Hanson. We did not lack for anything. Very suitably selected hotels with very good Scottish cuisine including local specialities such as haggis. Partly off the beaten track we went to the most beautiful photo motives of Isle of Sky and the Highlands. Often, we took pictures at places we would never have found without the local guide. It is not easy to find spots on Skye that are always adapted to the weather, but Jenny and Nick mastered that. Thanks again and good light wherever you take pictures.
With Jenny, Harry and Nick we were allowed to get to know a part of Scotland. I can now understand your enthusiasm for this wild country. Thank you so much for letting me come along. As a beginner I felt well looked after among all the cracks, and not at all as an outsider. I got a different eye for the landscape around me and I am very grateful for that. My photo equipment is always ready.
Wild Scotland fully complied with the tender! With sunshine and blue "disturbances", with rainbows and hailstorms we were able to capture the landscape photographically. What more could the photographer's heart desire... Jenny and Nick were always helpful and competent at our side. Gladly anytime again!
A great trip that brings you closer to the rugged beauty of the Hebridean islands of Harris and Lewis. With the ever changing weather and light conditions we were able to take pictures at different locations. Jenny picks up each participant at his or her individual photography level and gives valuable individual input, so that beginners and advanced photographers alike feel comfortable on the tour.
Reto Savoca & Katharina Rentsch
Perfectly supervised by Jenny and Dan, we could explore the fantastic landscapes of Croatia and Slovenia photographically. With the small group and two guides we were able to respond to individual wishes - something that cannot be taken for granted. But with the great program there are hardly any special wishes left, but above all great photos! Many thanks for the great week and we are looking forward to Svalbard!
Once something goes perfectly during a journey, that may be luck. But if the level is the same on a second trip, then it's simply high quality! Also, on the trip to Croatia and Slovenia, everything was top, from the choice of locations to the accommodation and last but not least the local guide. Dan Briški and Jenny guided us to wonderful locations, whereby of course the Plitvice Lakes are an absolute must for every Karl May fan. But also, the variety of the Slovenian northeast with its wild mountain landscape could offer one or the other "boaaah!" effect. All in all, again a successful trip, from which I could take many nice memories with me.
Franz & Heidi
Organisation top! Jenny has organized everything perfectly and her cordial nature is simply contagious! The two hotels in Croatia and Slovenia were well chosen and suitable for the trip. The small group of six people made the trip very flexible and individual. Wherever possible, every wish was fulfilled, be it photography, resting time or food etc. It was very harmonious for me and the group fitted together. I enjoyed it and thank you very much for the good time!
Amazing Views manages to satisfy the most diverse photographer demands on their travels. Perfectly organized down to the very smallest detail and always lovingly and professionally supervised, we were taken to breath-taking photo spots where the masses cannot get to. Many of the participants were not on the road with Amazing Views for the first time - and that alone shows that Jenni and Thomas do just about everything a photo junkie could wish for. I've been taking pictures for almost 40 years and still learned a lot of new things during the week on the Outer Hebrides.
Seldom has a landscape impressed me as much as the one on Skye. The peace and simplicity of the landscape is breathtakingly beautiful. The weather was mostly good and so I took great pictures with beautiful light moods. Now I can reminisce at home while editing the pictures. Jenny and Nick were great tour guides/photographers and always brought us to the photo spots at the right time of day (sometimes even in the middle of the night). With their patient and humorous manner, they always gave us valuable tips. Thanks for the great organization and unforgettable days. See you next time...
The trip was great! The organization and execution, as well as the support was super. We visited very nice photo spots, as described in the travel description. Also, we were lucky with the weather. Except for a little rain it was nice and warm. I also think it's great that we were accompanied by guides who know the region very well. This was my first trip with Amazing Views and my expectations were completely fulfilled.
Fantastic locations, professional assistance in photography, funny tours and warm-hearted people - especially the tour guides. Top organisation before, during and after the holiday. Once again you have left nothing to be desired on the Outer Hebrides! Thanks a million for these unforgettable experiences and of course the great pictures on my memory card! I am always happy to travel with you!
Jenny's skills and her warm nature scored so strongly that the grey sky became almost secondary. I would have chosen the same accommodation also by myself, perfect choice, and I also enjoyed the shared rides in the 9-seater. I can only recommend Amazing Views.
Amazing Views is characterized by the higher quality of its planning and execution at the highest level. The organization and the choice of accommodation is as you would plan it for yourself - perfect! The service is cordial and tailored to each individual. Finally a provider who is seriously interested in the results of his participants and therefore very motivating. Thanks for everything!
Jenny is a born organizer. She plans the trip meticulously and checks on site once again to make sure that all spots are accessible before she takes her clients there. She is open for beginners and advanced alike and explains everything patiently and according to the level of the client. And she has chosen sensationally beautiful spots! It was great fun, thank you very much!
The Toscana trip was just great! Jenny knows the area very well and so we were able to shoot at the best spots at the best time of day. She takes her time for every single participant and so you benefit enormously. For me as a beginner this was ideal to learn as much as possible - from camera settings to image compositions or even the image editing program Lightroom. The atmosphere in the group was also very pleasant and I really appreciated the exchange with the other participants. I can recommend the trip to everyone. Thanks for a great week and see you soon.
Perfect organisation, professional and cordial workshop management by Jenny, fantastic spots at the right time - just outstanding! Thank you very much for the great days, I could benefit a lot!
The trip was perfectly organized from the first to the last minute. The accommodation was great, and we lacked nothing. Jennifer and Cody, our two guides, always stood by us with their great expertise and there was no question that could not be answered by them. Moreover, both of them are excellent photographers and understand their craft perfectly. We lacked nothing. This was my first photo trip with Amazing Views but certainly not my last.......I will come back 🙂
Photo tour "Lofoten Winter Dream & Northern Lights Excellent organization. Super locations to photograph. I can only recommend Amazing Views for photo tours. I myself have profited photographically.
A workshop stands and falls with the course instructor. Susanne imparts her knowledge in a relaxed, friendly and professional manner. She takes a lot of time for each participant and is available with help and advice. The afternoon in the woods with the spring flowers flew by and I just went home happy. Thank you Amazing Views, the macro course was a hit for me.
As a "repeat offender" at Amazing Views, I always make new and beautiful experiences that bring me further in photography and also let me experience nature in a different facet. Organisation and implementation are, as always, perfect at a high level. It is a pleasure!
Individual guidance in the group, lots of joy and knowledge and fun. Professional guidance - thank you very much for the inspiring day.
Zermatt offers the perfect backdrop to showcase the majestic Matterhorn, be it at night framed by a fantastic starry sky or as a reflection in one of the mountain lakes. Thanks to the excellent organisation, you stay quite close to the photo spots and have relatively short distances - but due to the altitude, you should be in a bit of shape. The workshop continued to impress with its small group size, accompanied by two professional photographers. Thank you for two very impressive days.
After having my camera almost unused for few months in the cupboard, I was lucky enough to attend the Zermatt workshop with Amazing Views. Jennifer and Mel's friendly and helpful nature, the spectacular surroundings and the great motifs around the Matterhorn made this workshop a super experience for me, from which I took a lot with me and learned a lot. Also that is possible to get great landscape pictures even when conditions are not ideal and the Matterhorn once again prefers to hide in the clouds 😉 I really liked the fact that the workshop was very comprehensive about camera settings and the use of filters, landscape photography, night photography, RAW development and image processing. Mel and Jenny were always there with an open ear and advice and support. These were intensive and incredibly instructive days in beautiful surroundings, from which I took a lot with me and hope that we will see each other again soon at a workshop.
You guys are just the best! 🙂
Very well organised workshop with an experienced, helpful instructor who gave many good tips. He was able to pick up on the participants' needs and inhibitions. The workshop location very close to Zurich main station was great.
Dear Jenny, Ttank you for your time on Sunday! And thank your for the waterfall photography, competent explanations and patience with the guests. You were there when they needed you. You thought of everything: pole, grey and gradient filters to try out and you even took care of the coffee and the bread rolls. Thanks a lot ! I am looking forward to flying to Iceland with you to photograph "amazing views".
I can recommend the participation to the workshop "Fantastic Zermatt" to everybody. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced landscape photographer, the Amazing Views team impresses with its professional organisation and individual care and support for your perfect picture.
I was able to profit a lot from the course. The support was very good, not only in the technical area. Although the level of knowledge of the participants was different, the course instructors dealt with the needs and questions very individually. The atmosphere in the group was great, not least because of the uncomplicated but always very professional manner of the course leaders. I can only recommend the course to others!
I spontaneously registered for the course. I discovered completely new elements and possibilities of photography. The theory at the start was very clear, efficient and helpful. On site (in the "bustle" of the start) I felt very well looked after and accompanied by Jens with his open, spontaneous, competent and clear manner. Many thanks to Jens and Jenny.
Jens Krauer presented an excellent introduction to street photography. The theoretical part with the following practice on the street was perfect. This workshop motivated me very much to dive further into street photography.
The workshop at Bachalpsee was characterized by a very pleasant, social ambiance. Both the leaders and the other participants were a great fit, and the theory part was well adapted to the photographic level of those present. The place is also so beautiful that attractive photo subjects can still be found even if the weather is not quite ideal.
The workshop was perfectly organized. Because of the small group, Fabio was able to respond to each participant separately and to advise them according to their level. Also, the topic image editing was shown and explained in an easy to understand way. It was my first but certainly not my last trip with Amazing Views.
A big compliment to Jenny and Fabio, who with a lot of experience, untiring commitment and a lot of fun made the excursion to Zermatt a fantastic event. Their photographic skills outdoors and also their knowledge in the workshops of image editing is top and each of us could learn a lot. Both of them gave everything, they took great care of us. A real firework of experiences rounded off by the nice group and of course the best weather. Thank you very much, will join gladly again!
The three days in Zermatt were simply great. The whole trip was top organized, and nothing was missing. I can only recommend a photo workshop/photo tour with Amazing Views. They do it with extreme passion and leave nothing to chance. I will be very happy to do a workshop and/or a trip with you again.
The photo workshop was, as usual, well organized by Amazing views. In addition to the breath-taking Landwasser viaduct, the guides Jenny and Fabio showed us their photographic skills including the subsequent image editing. Impressive scenery, great guides with enormous know-how, great supervision, a great group and great photos made this workshop a highlight.
The workshop was held in a fantastic location with different lighting moods on the water. The two professional instructors Fabio and Jenny did everything to pass on their very comprehensive knowledge to the participants, be it during the shooting itself or the next day during the image editing. I was able to learn and profit a lot.
A very instructive workshop, which was also fun. Very good atmosphere, good didactics in both parts (camera and image editing).
The Landwasser Viaduct photo workshop was well planned and organized. I found the combination of photography and image editing workflow very good. Also it was great to have a possibility to test a PhaseOne. Thanks for the perfect organization and support :-).
