Comfortable, sturdy hiking boots and hiking clothes are important as you'll be hiking to various shooting locations. A warm jacket, warm hat and gloves are essential for staying comfortable while waiting for the sun to rise around 2000 meters elevation. See details below in "Further Details" regarding fitness level.

Mike Bissig feels at home while photographying in the Swiss Alps. Although he lives near Zurich, he spends much of his free time in the alpine region of Uri, base-camping at his family's farm house in Urnerboden. As a Swiss adventure and lifestyle photographer he concentrates mainly on shooting for the outdoor industry. His photographs of outdoor athletes get used by companies like Mammut, the Swiss Alpine Club and various tourism agencies. Mike is able to draw on his extensive mountaineering and athletic experience for his outdoor projects at home and abroad and helps Viewfinder students learn how to get great shots in spite of stormy weather.
This weekend landscape photography workshop takes place on one of the most beautiful (and longest) alpine ridges in Switzerland. Uri's Klausen Pass will give you a fresh perspective and new inspiration to capture some of Switzerland's most stunning alpine scenery.
After completing this course you'll be well prepared for these upcoming photography courses!
