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.

Magical Lavender Provence, July 2022

Elisabeth

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.

Svalbard, May 2022

Jennie

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.

Svalbard, May 2022

Joe

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.

Svalbard, May 2022

Diana

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.

Svalbard, May 2022

Thomas

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.

Faroe Islands, April 2022

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!

Svalbard, April 2022

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!

Ireland Kerry & Wicklow, May 2022

Renate

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.

Madeleine K.

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.

Svalbard, April 2022

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.

Svalbard, April 2022

Daniel

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.

Wild Scotland, May 2022

Lutz

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!

Faroe Islands, April 2022

Susanne

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!

Faroe Islands, April 2022

Leslie

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!

Outer Hebrides, March 2022

Marc

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.

Lofoten Winter’s Dream March 2022

Tanja

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.

Outer Hebrides, March 2022

Nicole

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!

Outer Hebrides, March 2022

Stephan

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.

Autumn colours Lofoten, October 2021

Thomas B.

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.

Golden Autumnal Slovenia, October 2021

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.

Istria & Plitvice Lakes Croatia & Golden Autumn Slovenia, October 2021

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.

Mystical Scotland, October 2021

Sascha

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.

Iceland Classic South, September 2021

Sabine

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!

European brown bears, September 2021

Daniel

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)

European brown bears, September 2021

Margrith

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.

Connemara Ireland, August 2021

Hans

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.

Connemara Ireland, August 2021

Frank

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.

Mystical Scotland, October 2019

Madeleine

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.

Slovenia autumn, October 2019

Thomas

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.

Slovenia autumn, October 2019

Deborah

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.

Slovenia autumn, October 2019

Gaby

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.

Lofoten autumn colours & northern lights, October 2019

Anna

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.

Lofoten autumn colours & northern lights, October 2019

Ursula

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.

Lofoten autumn colours & northern lights, October 2019

Susanne

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.

Lofoten autumn colours & northern lights, October 2019

Yvonne

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.

Lofoten autumn colours & northern lights, October 2019

Sebastian

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.

Unique Dolomites, September 2019

Michael

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.

Dreamlike Dolomites, October 2019

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!

Unique Dolomites, September 2019

Roland

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.

Ireland Kerry & Wicklow, September 2019

Margrit

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.

Ireland Kerry & Wicklow, September 2019

Daniel

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!

Ireland Kerry & Wicklow, September 2019

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.

Northern Spain, June 2019

Tanja

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.

Northern Spain, June 2019

Steffi

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.

Croatia, June 2019

Manuela

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.

Croatia, June 2019

Dominique

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.

Wild Scotland & Outer Hebrides, May 2019

Susanne

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!

Outer Hebrides, May 2019

Christiane

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!

Wild Scotland, May 2019

Andrea

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.

Wild Scotland, May 2019

Markus

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.

Wild Scotland, May 2019

Wilfried

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.

Picturesque Tuscany, May 2019

Sandra

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.

Ireland North - Wild Atlantic Way & Causeway Costal Route, April 2019

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 North - Wild Atlantic Way & Causeway Costal Route, April 2019

Isabella

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.

Ireland North - Wild Atlantic Way & Causeway Costal Route, April 2019

Philipp

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!

Ireland North - Wild Atlantic Way & Causeway Costal Route, April 2019

Hans

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.

Ireland North - Wild Atlantic Way & Causeway Costal Route, April 2019

Chris

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!

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.

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.

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.

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 🙂

The exact programme for the day will be put together on site at short notice in order to be able to respond to the respective weather and light conditions. You will be out and about mainly at sunrise and sunset, or during the day if the sky is overcast. Our photo guides will lead you to the most beautiful photo locations. Alex knows the region very well.

Accommodation

Our hotel offers an ideal location on the edge of the national park to discover the highlights of Saxon Switzerland. From the roof terrace you can enjoy views of the Lilienstein and the Elbe River.
All rooms feature elegant furniture, a minibar, a flat-screen satellite TV and a private bathroom with a shower and a hairdryer. The hotel also offers a restaurant with a bar and a large terrace.

Weather

The climate is rather dry and fresh. The maximum temperatures are about 12°C. In the morning, temperatures drop to about 6°C. There can also be frost.

Clothing

Due to changeable weather, you definitely have to be prepared for all eventualities. We therefore recommend breathable functional clothing using the onion principle, which transports perspiration to the outside without losing heat and dries quickly.
Well-worn, waterproof hiking boots with an appropriate treaded sole are indispensable for Saxon Switzerland. You should always carry a rain jacket and rain pants in your backpack so that you can react quickly if the weather changes. It is also advisable to pack hiking poles for the hikes.

Condition & hiking in Saxon Switzerland 

You should be fit enough to participate in for moderate hikes on the local trails and be sure-footed. Many photo locations are easily accessible by car or with a short hike. Certain locations may involve a walking time of 1 - 3 hours pre direction. The hikes can also involve up to 250 metres of altitude ascent/ descent. Afterwards you will be rewarded with breath-taking views.
Certain sections of the trails or individual photo locations may be somewhat exposed. A certain amount of head for heights will help. However, if you have fear of heights, there is always the option of taking photos from an alternative vantage point. Our photo guides will help you find a location that is safe for you.

Photo tour procedure

We will compile the exact daily programme on location at short notice in order to be able to respond to the respective weather and lighting conditions. To ensure that you can capture images at the right time with the right light for the respective location, we will be out and about especially at sunrise and sunset times. If the sky is overcast, we will also drive to suitable locations during the day. In between, you will also have time (as desired) to participate in image discussions and tutorials or to rest during short breaks.

Sunrise & Sunset

During the photo tour, the sun will rise at approximately 7:45 am and set at approximately 5:45 pm.
