Any camera which has a wide angle lens and allows for full manual control of exposure settings will work fine on this day-trip. We are “brand-agnostic” at Viewfinder, so any camera brand is just fine. You will need a tripod for this outing. If you don't own one, please inquire about using one of ours or else borrow or rent one beforehand. Please be sure to charge your camera's battery and consider bringing an extra battery with you as well.

Student Testimonials

I loved the approach of Dagmar and Matt. I've been on several trips that have allowed me to access parts of my camera (and Switzerland) that would have otherwise passed me by. I have taken good photos and met fabulous people along the way.

I would highly recommend Viewfinder Center as a good place to learn photography in a friendly setting. I followed the Advanced Study and several other workshops and daytrips before that. Learning a new skill and making friends. It has a great community too to share and keep being inspired.

One of the most innovative motivating photo school with really professional instructors. Can recommend it to anybody from beginner to advanced photography-lovers!
