What our clients say

Christian F.

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.

Christian S.

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.

Day 1 – From Zurich to Zermatt

We will meet at 11 am in Zurich. If you are flying into Zurich, you will need to arrive in Zurich by 8:30 am at the latest. If this is not possible, we recommend that you arrive one day early. We will be happy to book a hotel for you.
We will then travel to Zermatt in our comfortable van. The duration of this trip is about four hours and takes you through stunning landscape. During the journey, we will also load our vehicle onto a train and cross through part of the Swiss Alps. We will arrive in Zermatt in the afternoon.
Zermatt is the ultimate mountain village. It offers breathtaking views of the majestic Matterhorn and its car-free streets are lined with 500-year-old wooden houses, shops, cafés and bars. Various different paths lead straight into the wild mountain landscape at the foot of the Matterhorn.
During the blue hour in the evening, we will photograph the Matterhorn from a fantastic viewpoint, hopefully in its best light.

Day 2 – Zermatt

In the morning, your photography guides will brief you on what you can expect from the rest of the tour – and of course, they also will share plenty of tips and tricks for your photography over the coming days.
We will then take a mountain railway and a gondola up to the mountain and we will check into a charming mountain hut. From our location you will have amazing views of the majestic Matterhorn – perhaps Europe’s most famous mountain – and enjoy the Alpine panorama. There is a fantastic view of the Matterhorn from the hut itself, even from most of the rooms too.
After the early supper, we head out to take great shots at sunset, dawn and night. Only a 20-minutes walk from the hut we will shoot at a very scenic lake. With a bit of luck the famous Matterhorn will reflect in the lake. If the sky is clear, we can also capture fantastic photos of the night sky with the Milky way (depending on the moon phase).

Day 3 – From Zermatt to Lauterbrunnen Valley

Today we set off before sunrise in order to be in the right place at the right time. After a sunrise photo session with a fantastic view of the Matterhorn, we head back to the hut to get some strength from breakfast.
We will then check out and take the mountain gondola and railway back to Zermatt. You will be driven to the Bernese Oberland in our van. We are sure that you will love this region with its imposing mountains and idyllic villages.
You will be staying in the Lauterbrunnen Valley, one of the most impressive valleys in the Alps. The valley lies between rocky cliffs and peaks and is dotted with 72 roaring waterfalls and colourful Alpine meadows.
Once again, we will take you to the most beautiful photo spots. You will photograph the Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau and other iconic mountains.

Days 4 - 5 – Meiringen and Rosenlaui

Today, we will travel to Meiringen in the Hasli Valley in the heart of Switzerland. The short journey will take us straight through the beautiful mountainous landscape.
The next two days, your guides will once again take you to picturesque photo spots, including a wild mountain valley and a glacier gorge. Marvel at powerful waterfalls and strange rock formations. For thousands of years, the glacial waters have been shaping the rock into a work of art.
The Rosenlaui Valley also provides incredible photo opportunities with its romantic landscape, rushing streams, wild waterfalls and rugged mountaintops. You are sure to be inspired by the scenery. Depending on the weather we will also visit a beautiful alpine landscape with a lake surrounded with mountains.
Switzerland Photo Tour

Day 6 – Lucerne

After a morning photo session, we will leave the mountains behind us and travel to Lucerne. For locals (and many others), it is without doubt one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Lucerne is situated on the lake of the same name, surrounded by an impressive mountain landscape. Its pretty old town is lined with historical houses decorated with frescos, as well as imposing 17th-century churches. The symbol of the city is the world-famous Chapel Bridge and its water tower. In addition to its traditional old town, Lucerne also has a modern side, showcasing innovative design. One of its architectural highlights is the futuristic Culture and Congress Centre.
You will photograph the famous Chapel Bridge as well as the idyllic lake and mountain panorama.
If the weather conditions are good, we will also take a trip into the countryside to capture a unique landscape. A picture-perfect hilly landscape awaits, with rolling hills crowned with lone linden trees. It’s a photographer’s dream.

Day 7 - Zurich

We will, of course, also photograph Lucerne at sunrise. You will then have some time to stroll through the beautiful old town.
Later, we will set off for the last stop on our tour. We will visit Zurich, Switzerland’s most cosmopolitan city, where you will have further opportunities to add to your portfolio. You can be assured that we will take you to the most photogenic spots Zurich has to offer.

Day 8 - End of photo tour

The photo tour ends after breakfast, when you can depart for your onward journey or your journey home.


During this photo tour you are staying in comfortable mid-range hotels that were carefully selected to meet our requirements. All accommodation establishments are located close to some of the photo spots.
One of the highlights is the charming mountain hut you are staying during the second night in Zermatt. You will enjoy a breath-taking view to the Matterhorn directly from the hotel. In Lucerne you are staying at a premier location very close to the lake with an amazing view on the mountain panorama.


Meeting point for this Swiss photo tour is at Zurich airport. Several airlines fly directly into Zurich. If you wish, we can recommend an agent for your flight booking.


On this trip you will be travelling with like-minded people who love nature and photography and who would like to deepen their own photographic knowledge.

Fitness level

This tour does not have particularly high physical demands. However, you should be fit enough to participate in hikes on the local hiking trails and be able to sleep at high altitude. For example there will be a 50-minutes hike on an alpine hiking trail to get to our mountain hut in Zermatt. Some photo locations may involve a little downhill and uphill hiking. Individual photo locations may be a little exposed. However, if you are afraid of heights, there is always the possibility to take pictures from a little further back.


This photo trip is outdoor oriented, and we will spend a lot of time outdoors in nature. We recommend robust and well broken-in hiking boots as well as appropriate outdoor clothing in the layer principle and rainwear.


The currency of Switzerland is Swiss franc, usually indicated as CHF. All major credit cards are accepted almost everywhere. The most common are VISA, Mastercard, American Express and Maestro. While Switzerland is not part of the European Union and thus is not obliged to convert to the Euro, many prices are nonetheless indicated in Euros so that visitors may compare prices. Merchants may accept Euros but are not obliged to do so. Change given back to the clients will most likely be in Swiss francs.

Schedule of the photo tour

We will arrange the exact day program on-site at short notice, in order to be able to respond to the respective weather and light conditions. To make sure that we are able to take pictures at the right time with the right light in the golden and blue hours, we will be outdoors especially at sunrise and sunset. In between, there will always be some free time to rest a little, explore the surroundings or participate in picture reviews and tutorials if desired. If fantastic weather and light moods arise, we can also include additional photo sessions.
