Open to all skill levels. Foundational photography skills, such as those covered in our popular Digital Photography 1-2-3 series are recommended.
You will need to bring your own camera and telephoto lens to this outing. We recommend a dSLR or a mirrorless type camera, but the most important factor is that your lens is capable to zoom in close. Some of our favourite lenses are the 300mm (from Olympus), the 100-400mm (from Canon) or the 80-400mm (from Nikon). Consider renting or borrowing a lens for day (before buying any new equipment). We're happy to answer questions about the benefits of one lens over the other. A monopod can be especially handy for stabilizing larger, heavier lenses.
Van pick up at Zurich HB, Museumstrasse 1, 8001 Zurich.
Matt Anderson is Viewfinder's lead photography instructor and is responsible for course development and for teaching a number of Viewfinder’s photography courses and workshops. Matt’s photography career began in the USA where he worked at three different daily newspapers and freelanced regularly for the Associated Press in Seattle — where he grew up. These days he regularly shoots for the Zurich-based Keystone agency and works with corporate and private clients in the Zurich area. Matt’s three passions are: exploring new places (near and far), creating impactful photographs, and helping other photographers become more creative and effective in their craft. Matt feels privileged to work in a business that combines his passions and brings him in contact with so many interesting people from all over the world.
For this weekend trip, we'll head to the French part of Switzerland and stay at a nice hotel right at our bird photography location.
