Project Description

Photography Weekend at Grimentz

25 – 27 September 2020

The perfect combination of your passion and an unforgettable weekend is only 3 hours away!
Join us to discover beautiful Grimentz and the neighbouring Moiry Dam.
Practice multiple fields of photography in a fun group, get personal advice and come back with stunning photos.

It’s going to be a fascinating escape from your everyday routine to fully concentrate on our common passion: photography. A picturesque old village with wooden houses, mesmerizing views, stunning nature combined with a group of likeminded people.

We will practice photographing landscapes, wildlife whenever possible, outdoor portrait shoots and night/astro photography. Our instructors will be there for you during the whole trip for any questions. There will be an editing session as well, where you will get personal feedback and help to select and improve your best photos.

Note: This trip will focus on hands-on photography rather than covering ‘the basics’. For the complete beginners, we recommend one of our beginner classes in advance for preparation. 

LOCATION

Located in the canton Valais, gorgeous Grimentz lies at 1.620 m in the Val d’Anniviers in the french-speaking part of Switzerland. Diving into the atmosphere of the (g)olden days becomes quite easy here: centuries-old buildings, narrow alleys and cultural heritage next to panoramic views and breathtaking landscapes. The perfect spot to forget about hectic life and completely focus on photography. We will improve our landscape photography skills at close-by Moiry Lake and Dam and will enjoy panoramic views from Bendolla.

Reaching there is possible via driving (parking spots available) or public transport (train + bus). We will send you detailed instructions about how to get there in your welcome information once you sign up for the trip.
