Topic: In June and July the “Almsommer” starts in the higher pastures of the alps. I will travel several weekends and will visit different alps in South Tyrol and Tyrol. The travel dates depend on the weather conditions. Pack your hiking boots and be prepared to hike up some pastures. Usually we will spend half a day on one pasture and so we will have 2 appointments a day. I will make sure we can have at least one early morning and one late night shoot so we can capture the best light. In between we will visit different breeders and will get the chance to take more pictures there.

Photo equipment: Each high pasture is a little different and with your standard 70-200mm lens you can’t do nothing wrong. I however do recommend also at least one wide-angle lens with e.g. 35mm or 24mm or even less, so you can capture the wonderful panorama of the mountains. I have good experiences with my 24-105mm lens for such trips. Don’t forget a lot of free space on your flash cards, you will take hundreds and thousands of pictures on one weekend.

Outfit and tack: It can be very cold depending how high we will go up in the mountains and it is very common to have fast weather changes. In the shade, mornings or evenings it can be very chilly, even if it is a hot summer day. Mist or rain can come up very fast and unexpected. So please pack also jackets and maybe a scarf. We will hike up a lot, so proper hiking boots are a must. Don’t forget sunscreen and a hat, we will be closer to the sun 🙂

Explorer Tour

Your Equine Photography Adventure starts here

Join me on this tour and discover new horses and new locations with me. During this micro photo tour I’m on the constant search for new exciting models and breathtaking backgrounds. Therefore we will travel together for a few days and schedule multiple interesting photo sessions.

Each Explorer Tour is unique! And each tour is a micro adventure. Discover rare equine breeds, free horses, golden Haflingers and other horse beauties with me.

  • Weekend or extended weekend tour
  • Around 2-4 photo sessions a day
  • Personal coaching in your field of interest (optional)
  • Only one or max. two spots available

Exciting and intense

The explorer tour is no wellness holiday 😉 depending on the distances I will organise 2 to 4 photo sessions a day. This can be exhausting and we will also spend a lot of time on the road. We will meet horses who have never had a shooting before and are unknown to the community. At the same time I also enjoy meeting experienced horse models which are a dream to work with. Each explorer Tour is unique, individual and a small adventure.


Perform photography on a new level

Do you know how to handle unexperienced horses? How to check out the location and search for the best spots? How to instruct the owner, models and helpers for the best poses? How to work flexible and spontaneous in a short amount of time? How to tickle the best out of a situation? And would you like to learn how to process the photos a whole session in Adobe Bridge and Lightroom? How to tackle hard-to-edit pictures in Photoshop? How to manage and secure all the data?

I can teach you in a broad field of techniques and efficient workflows or guide you through your photographic problems.

No teacher-student situation wanted? Don't worry, we can also meet at eye level and inspire each other by sharing our photographic secrets and enjoy the tour.
