2020.09 Expedition: Heimat Tour – The Best from Southern Germany adventourous horse photo tour for equine photographers by The Pixel Nomad

Equine Photo Expedition 12.-19.09.2020

Heimat Tour

This year, Corona has probably put a huge crimp in the plans for all of us. There is almost no area that is not affected by this crisis. I also had to postpone, cancel or restructure my Explorer Events. Since I don’t want to let the joy of travelling be taken away from me and I know that there are many other enthusiastic travelling photographers, I would like to invite you to a very special trip for this battered year 2020.

Explore southern Germany

I was born in Southern Germany, grew up between the Black Forest and the Swabian Alb. I have lived in the northern Black Forest and in Munich, among other places. I know the south of Germany (almost!) like the back of my hand. From the Bavarian Oberland, over the Allgäu, to Lake Constance, the Swabian Alb, along the Danube, the Black Forest and the Palatinate, Germany’s south has a lot to offer. So why wander into the distance when it can be so beautiful at home? After this difficult time, we want to strengthen the local tourism with this tour, learn more about our local culture and traditions and of course take pictures of local and autochthonous horse breeds.

Join the adventure

This tour offers sessions with local horse breeds, with special emphasis on rare and endangered breeds and free living horses. The choice of sessions, locations and breeds allows for a wide variety and experience.

Impressions of the locations and models

This Heimat Tour offers beautiful landscapes, native breeds of horses, free-roaming herds and regional attractions await you on the horse photo tour.

Adventure is calling, so we must go


Your photographic adventure of a lifetime is calling you to join this unique horse photo tour. I have explored the best locations during my travels to take photos: from the highest glacier valley, to dramatic mountain sceneries, perfect beaches, free roaming horses and beautiful stallions — each session is a highlight and many locations will literally blow your mind and will make your flash drives glow hot. During the 6 to 10 day Expedition we will visit my favourite places and discover their horses in a small and diverse group, so the adventurers can inspire each other, exchange knowledge and share experiences.

Exciting and unique

What to expect

During the past years I have made many contacts to amazing horses and people in different parts of Europe. For my unique horse photo tour Expeditions, I will put together one highlight after another. Our horse models will be mostly local horse breeds with a special focus on rare and endangered breeds. Each Expedition in unique and I don’t plan to repeat them in the following years.

Think outside the box

What you can learn

The Equine Photo Expedition is not like a workshop. We don’t have any theoretical classes, but focus on travelling, exploring and discovering new locations, amazing horses and the best scenery the place offers. But this doesn’t exclude any learnings! We will share experiences and give each other insights in our workflow, by spending time with each other and work together. Before embarking the tour we will have a preparation call to get to know and clear things up. A harmonic and social group is crucial to a successful trip together as a group. I strongly encourage you to step out of your photographic comfort zone and experiment with new techniques, lenses and angles during the tour.
