Open to all skill levels. Foundational photography skills, such as those covered in our popular Digital Photography 1-2-3 series are strongly recommended for this workshop.
This workshop is open to anyone, especially those who wish to try out mirrorless camera equipment from Olympus. We'll have demo cameras and lenses available for participant's use. Regardless of your camera system, you'll benefit the most by bringing a wide angle and/or a medium length lens with you. A tripod will be handy for sunset and sunrise photography and is also useful for long-exposure and astro-photography techniques. If you own a macro lens — don't leave that behind! Sturdy hiking boots & outdoor clothing are must-haves as our hut and shooting locations are reached by hiking. A warm jacket, hat and gloves are essential for staying comfortable as you wait for the sun to rise at around 2000 meters elevation.
Pick up at 08:30 at the Zurich main train station, Museumstrasse 1, 8001 Zurich.
