What to Expect
Lucerne by night is an impressive sight to behold. The reflections along the Lake and River of the city lights make this renowned alpine city magical. Grab a tripod (it can be rented as optional in this tour) for a 2.5 hour exploration of Lucerne on a private tour where we will teach you how to make beautiful night time images through mastering the most challenging elements of photography but also you will learn about important historical facts of the city.
Whether you are starting off, a hobbyist or have years of experience, we will find superb photographic opportunities for all kinds of interests. Capture not just the grand landmarks, but the stream of car lights and the blurred passing of boats on Lake Lucerne. Take advantage of the one-on-one experience of our private and personalised tour to develop your own creative vision while offering practical tips on photographing in low light and long exposures.
Each tour is private and crafted to the skills and needs of the participants. We will not couple you with people you do not know. Feel free to bring along guests, such as other photographer friends, or your partner and family, but we ask you to limit the group to four people. This way we can work at your pace to make sure you take away the skills that last a lifetime. A creative and exciting evening for everyone with an interest in photography or just wants to see our favorite places in Lucerne (camera is not necessary if you just want to see Lucerne at night).
