Heidi

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.

Erich

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!

Madeleine

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.

Manuela

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.

Silvia

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.

Frank

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!

Jana

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.

Lars

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.

Stefan

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 :-).

For whom is this Photo Workshop Zermatt suitable?

This workshop is aimed at beginners with basic knowledge (you know where to adjust aperture, time and ISO) as well as advanced photographers. We hike with the photographic equipment on the two days in each case about 2 to 4 hours. This workshop involves moderate walking on hiking trails. A moderate level of fitness is required on this tour.

Arrival

Zermatt is a car-free town. By car you have to drive to Täsch (parking available). From Täsch, the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn takes guests to Zermatt every 20 minutes.

Accomodation

For our group, enough double rooms are reserved. You are staying with another participant of the same sex in a double room (or if you register as a couple, with your companion).

Recommended camera equipment

  • A camera with manual adjustment options (including SLR, system camera, bridge camera, compact camera)
  • At least 1 object in the normal range as well as wide angle and medium telephoto lens (e.g. 70-200mm)

Weather

The weather can change rapidly in the mountains. Therefore bring suitable clothing, preferably in the onion principle including rain jacket/trousers and good, robust hiking boots.
This workshop takes place in any weather. Even if the weather is cloudy or rainy, there are often exciting motifs to photograph. In case of bad weather we will put more emphasis on theory. For the possible photography of natural phenomena like the starry sky, appropriate weather (e.g. clear sky) is a prerequisite. This cannot be guaranteed.
