Shooting in the Alps

The photograph of alpine landscapes requires, in addition to photography skills, a certain passion for hiking and for the mountains.

Some locations are easily accessible by car or by cableway. Often, though, you need to walk for hours, in conditions of fatigue and of difficulties that sometimes reach extreme levels.

Be careful and not overdo: life is worth more than a picture!

There are wonderful photographs that depict the classic places of the Alps, the most known views.

There are also shots that show the true essence of the mountain; these are not like those of advertising because they capture the hidden and remote, less attractive to tourists.

.... but perhaps, now, even the tourists love the charm of the hidden places, of the unusual things, of the unknown. Isn't it?
