    Frequently asked questions 

    What level of photography is required?

    The workshop is open to all levels of experience. The only thing we ask is that you bring passion, energy and the drive to be out in the field every day no matter what the weather is like.

    What should I bring?

    We will send out a clothing list before the trip. We recommend that you layer up! Bring comfortable clothes for sunny days and layers for when it’s colder such as in the morning and evening. A rain jacket, preferably Gore-tex and a wool underlayer will help when shooting after sunset. Merino socks and hiking boots are your best friend. As the saying goes “there’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing”. Temperatures during the day could hit over 20 degrees Celsius and on an evening in the mountains approach 0 degrees Celsius. 

    What are the required fitness conditions?

    During this workshop we will have to carry the camera equipment as well as clothes, food and water for smaller hikes. It should be doable for all fitness levels as we can plan enough time and adapt the route.

    Where will we be staying?

    At a comfortable Hotel.

    Can I bring a drone?

    Of course! Please only use your drone where it is allowed to do so. We would recommend bringing a DJI Mavic sized drone to give you a smooth travel experience. If you are interested we can show you the basics of aerial photo- and videography.

    What and where will we eat?

    We will eat dinner and breakfast in the mountain lodges. Where and how to eat lunch is up to you. 

    What about Corona?

    We will follow the Swiss government’s advisories. Masks and hand sanitizer will be available throughout the entire workshop.
