Lakes and Mountains September 2017

Come September, pack up your camera gear and join us on a unique photographic journey through the breath-taking Alpine landscape of Europe. This EuroPhoto Roadtrip offers you freedom to explore the incredible legacy of the last Ice Age in the company of a small group of like-minded individuals. We will journey in comfort over the highest mountain range in Europe, stopping wherever we want to. Take the ferry across Lake Lucerne; enjoy an ice-cream on the shores of Lake Como; watch the local fishing community plying their trade; survey the luxury yachts and do some people-watching in Geneva – or simply marvel at the magnificence of the rugged, unspoilt peaks. What better way can there be to take fabulous pictures and enjoy life?

" I have been on 3 photography holidays with different companies, and Appleton Photo Training was by far and away the best of the bunch. It was literally dawn to dusk full on photography. Andrew is a very selfless and supportive instructor, he demonstrates techniques and then gives ample opportunity to develop your own ideas. He provided a lengthy one to one feedback session, giving constructive critique of my images. The holiday was varied and fast paced, ranging from landscape, street photography, dance and fashion models, including one to one with the models. The accommodation and food were excellent. Andrew, together with his support team set a friendly atmosphere, which produced a great team spirit amongst the delegates. If you want variety, want to take your photography to a higher level and have a great time get yourself on an Appleton road trip, you will love every minute."

Sometimes, you don’t have to set up the shot, wait for the light or deliberate on where to shoot from. It’s just there, waiting for you. That’s the feeling I got as we approached this pretty little fishing village on the eastern shore of Lake Como. Of course, it helps...
