What our clients say
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 :-).
