SWISS ALPS PHOTO TOURS
SWISS FESTIVALS PHOTO TOURS
Traditional customs are alive and well all over Switzerland, with a rich variety not only from region to region, but also from village to village. Religious festivals, the farming year, and the events of history, national and regional, are all celebrated in one way or another. If Swiss daily life is a bit too rigid for your liking, the following energetic, magical, and occacionally excentric traditions will show you a side to the swiss character you might never have suspected.
Our aim is to raise your awareness and spark your creativity so that you not only go home with images to be proud of, but use your new found skills to improve and expand your photographic technique in general. Apart from the technical aspect of learning your camera settings and capabilities, you will learn how to turn an ordinary image into an extraordinary image by using your own creativity
These adventures are designed not only to guide you to the most photogenic locations carefully planned for the best light, but to aid you in mentally visualising a scene before capturing the decisive moment
