Speaker at Lowland Photo Festival 2016

Lowland promo_4

One by one the names of the speakers are announced …and I am very proud and happy to be one of the invited speakers for Lowland Photo Festival 2016 in Antwerp (Belgium).

On Sunday 11 December I will give my lecture about ‘Variations in Trees’.  In Kinapolis Antwerper – Belgium.
The intro on their site starts with Who stands to shake on his or her legs for our enormous projection screen and a room with 671 seats … this year….me !, but I am also very excited and happy to be part of this great event.  Hope you all will come to see  my work  and hear me speak  😉 !

Lowland Photo Festival is one of the biggest photo events from Belgium and the Netherlands, during two days you can enjoy impressive lectures and seminars of an army of national and international photographers and you can also visit the largest nature photo fair of the Low lands (Netherlands & Belgium). Here you can find information about new photo gear but also where to go on your next photo-tour. For example my tour operator Nordic Vision photo-tours will also give acte de présensce.

My thoughts are with the people who died in Nice (France) and
with all the people who lost their loved ones. What a crazy world we live in, chaos!

New in 2017 – Italian Dolomites Photo tour



Experience the impressive decor from the ‘other’ Italy

When all my school friends went to the beach my parents took my brother and me every summer to San Cassiano, in the heart of the Italian Dolomites. Unfortunately when you are so young you do not appreciate all that beauty around you, it is much later that you realize that this was the seeding of my love for the mountains and for nature. Going back to my childhood holiday destination almost felt like going back home again. Tucked away memories came back and I rediscovered the beauty of these magnificent mountain ranges with their stone cathedrals. Pure enjoyment! I will be more than happy to share this beautiful area with you during this 8-day photo-tour – Kristel

First video debut | Intentional Camera Movement (ICM)

ICM Technique
by Kristel Schneider

Fresh spring greens with sunlight
A couple of months ago the local newspaper La Montagne asked me if I was willing to join in their video series “La Montage Images” featuring local photographers.  Their aim was to create short videos to promote photography to a wider public. The first season hosted all  the photographers who work for the local newspaper and because of the success they decided to start a second season  along with local photographers who would explain a photo subject to the general public. So not too technical, but rather show that photography can be fun to explore. I decided to talk about ICM technique –  a technique which to be used whenever you want to create abstract images by moving your camera about.

At the end of April we did the video shoot in a woody area, close to Ravel in Auvergne | France. My timing was right for the fresh green leaves on trees, which resulted in a nice
subject for the image example. I must say,  it was difficult to stay serious while I was  talking, especially as I had two cameras pointing at me while a guy with  big headphones and microphone was moving about.
I first only agreed on doing this video if I could speak English. Indeed I did not feel comfortable enough to do this all in French – hence the voice-over performed by a French native speaker.
