– Autumn |  Photo-tour
(for Nordic Vision photo-tours – photography travel company )


  • Forest lakes, brooks and little waterfalls
  • Landscape- and macro photography mix
  • Abstract photography with Intentional Camera Movement technique
  • Guided by photographer Kristel Schneider

During the 8 days we will explore this beautiful mysterious forest landscape and visit a couple of lakes in the middle of the forest. We will explore the high Chaumes du Forez with its wetlands and open landscapes. You will discover a beautiful old glacial valley.  We strive to organize at least two photo discussions, focusing on how to create effective compositions (what works what does not) learning to look differently (eye for detail) and depending on the groups experience some basic image processing. The program includes short walks in nature to forests and lakes (depending on the weather conditions) and we will drive higher up in the mountains. This is not just a photo-tour but a workshop with professional guidance, where the group is kept small so that everyone gets personal attention and practical tips in the field.

Estonia: photography tour (NEW)
10-18 October 2019

  • Photograph peat bogs, forest and water landscapes
  • Creative landscape photography
  • Also for lovers of intimate landscapes and details
  • Guidance by nature photographer Kristel Schneider
  • Full board

Estonia, unknown to many photographers, invites you to explore the country with your camera. Estonia is the smallest of the three Baltic states and it is an unique piece of Europe. Not only because of its history, but especially also because three quarters of Estonia is covered with forests and peat bogs. As result it still offers a lot of untouched nature. This photo tour focuses on the 2 main elements of Estonia: trees and water.
Together with nature photographer Kristel Schneider you will discover the beauty of this almost Scandinavian-looking country. The journey starts on the island of Hiiumaa, focusing on the coastal landscapes of the Baltic Sea. We will visit Ristna, according to the Estonians one of the most beautiful beaches in the country, to photograph rocks and colored boulders by the sea.

Ruins, country houses and old wooden barns can be a photography subject if the group is interested in
these human elements. Then we move back to the mainland to take on the photographic challenge of the vast forests and bogs. Of course we hope for beautiful light and some fog so that the bogs show their mystical side. And with a bit of luck, we also capture the beautifull autumn colors. We take plenty of time for photography and can also return to photo locations to try out other frames or from a different point of view in different light conditions. During the trip, two photo reviews are planned that will undoubtedly provide a starting point for new inspiration. Besides the many possibilities for landscape photography, there is also a chance of wildlife in Estonia. We always keep our eyes and ears open to spot deers and elks, as well as for the many migratory birds. This can be a welcoming addition to the possibilities for landscape photography.

Join us to this special country and ‘get a taste of Estonia’!
