Open to all skill levels. Foundational photography skills, such as those covered in our popular Digital Photography 1-2-3 series are recommended.
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.
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.
Upon arriving at our destination, we'll present some tips on the different tools, camera settings and compostion before we start pursuing our subjects on foot. We strongly recommend wearing sturdy hiking boots!
After completing this course you'll be well prepared for these upcoming photography courses!
