Shooting the giant alps of Switzerland is no easy task when you only have 24 hours to do it in
A quick departure from the UK last week saw me in Zermatt, Switzerland, for only 24 hours. A whistle-stop tour of the Pennine Alps with a focus on the Matterhorn gave me plenty of opportunity for some fine art black and white photographs.
With clear skies and not a cloud to be seen, I took full advantage of the night sky for a dramatic astro photo which shows the milky way galaxy standing tall above the Matterhorn, dwarfing the 4478m giant mountain.
The alps are such a stunning part of the european continent and it’s definitely a place I will be holding workshops soon (if you’re interested, get in touch via the contact page). It was also great to be shooting alongside the stunningly talented landscape photographer Tom Mackie, who suggested I join him out in Switzerland for the day. He’s definitely one of those people you want to go out with to shoot, good fun and productive all at the same time!
