The workshop takes place mainly in German speaking part of Switzerland (cantons Schwyz and Glarus) and partly in Ticino (Italian speaking part). Swiss nature offers many outstanding locations – mountains, lakes, rocks, waterfalls, meadows – as you can see in the gallery of locations above.
THE MAIN INTENTION
The intention is to capture women´s essence in diversity of natural enviroment. Pure beauty of women´s body conneted with pure nature.
The weather plays important role in creating great pictures and while we will do our very best to ensure that you go home with several pictures you are really proud of, we cannot guarantee that we will have the ideal conditions for the workshop. Important thing is to be flexible and make a final decission about locations for the next day an evening before (according to the actual weather forecast). However, we have been pretty lucky so far (last 7 years), as you can see on the pictures in gallery. So we believe the weather will play into our hands again this year.
PRELIMINARY DAILY SCHEDULE
If the weather conditions are ideal or acceptable, we plan to leave the hotel each day around 5:30-6:30. We will travel directly to the first location where we are going to spend approx. 2-4 hours (depending on the particular location and conditions). After lunch we will move to the second location where we are going to spend another 2-3 hours.
The workshop is mainly about artistic nudes in nature, however we also might be shooting a bit of fashion/portraits in a small historical town one of the afternoons.
In the end of the day you can join us for dinner & nice conversation. 🙂
We will be working mainly with natural light. However, if you prefer to use flash, let us know in advance please. Reto has triggers for Godox system for Nikon and Canon plus one adapter for Sony.
We will have 2 reflectors with us (one for each group).
What to bring:
You should obviously bring your camera (preferably a DSLR or mirrorless camera).
It´s good to bring at least a standart lens (24-72mm). A wide angle lens and telephoto lens (70-200mm) can be very useful as well.
If you have, bring a tripod and ND filters.
You will propably also need some spare batteries.
In any case we kindly ask you to bring only the equipment you can carry by yourself.
For more information regarding photography equipment you can contact Reto directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Since this workshop will take place outside, please dress appropriately depending on the weather conditions. You should also wear some sturdy shoes.
On the day of arrival there will be a meeting at 6pm (we will meet all together in front of the hotel). We kindly ask all participants to take part in this meeting. If you can´t be present (for example in case of late arrival), let us know in advance please.
During the meeting we will get to know each other and you will also receive a schedule for the next 3 days.
The meeting will last max 1 hour and after the meeting we can have a dinner together.
