Just over the hill from Lake Zurich lies an interesting playground for outdoor photographers. It’s forest, marshes and gardens offer boundless subject matter for honing your nature photography skills. Grab your macro lens and tripod and feed your springtime creativity! Dagmar Anderson and Susanne Venditti will lead the hunt for colourful flowers as well as frogs, snakes and birds. There’s something for every nature lover to photograph at this enjoyable nature oasis.
Our group will rendezvous at the Zurich HB before heading to our location in the Viewfinder van. Upon arriving, we’ll enjoy a private park tour by an English speaking naturalist. Participants will get acquainted with their surroundings and the different subjects that they may wish to spend more time shooting after the tour. Susanne Venditti will provide helpful tips on shooting macro subjects, birds and other nature subjects.
Our group will take a midday lunch break (at the informal park restaurant) and after a bit more afternoon shooting we’ll call it a wrap – returning to the Zurich HB by ca. 17:00.
One hour drive from Zurich HB.
EN/DE: This trip is conducted in English but both trip leaders are natives of Switzerland, speaking Swiss German, German and English fluently.
The Viewfinder van will depart from the Zurich HB at 8:30, returning in the evening by 17:00.
Open to all skill levels and all ages. Foundational photography skills, such as those covered in Viewfinder’s popular dSLR 1-2-3 Digital Photography Course are helpful but not required.
Come with whatever camera gear you have. Experienced/well-equipped photographers will find macro and telephoto lenses quite useful for photographing plant and bird life, but the less gear-crazy among us will enjoy photographing with compact cameras and even smartphones. This trip is less about the gear, and instead focuses on creativity, relaxing and enjoying a peaceful natural setting.
We’ll pause for lunch around 12:00 and grab a quick bite from the informal outdoor restaurant in the park. Please bring some cash to purchase a meal or snack.
Minimum of 5 participants, Maximum of 10.

Albeit a rather soggy visit to Seleger Moor, I had a great time and met a great bunch of people. Matt and Dagmar, well done for organizing a great day out.
