    Photo Workshops

    Summer in the Alps. The Austrian Alps in summer present a mesmerizing panorama of natural beauty and outdoor activities. Verdant meadows, adorned with colorful wildflowers, stretch beneath snow-kissed peaks. Crystal-clear alpine lakes reflect the breathtaking scenery, creating a serene atmosphere. Hiking and biking trails crisscross the landscape, revealing awe-inspiring vistas. Summer unveils local festivals celebrating alpine traditions and offers a taste of hearty cuisine. The Alps in this season offer a tranquil retreat and an opportunity to immerse oneself in nature’s grandeur.

    Photography, cycling, and more. Each day will include photography workshops and bike trips. You’ll have the option to wake early for a morning photo shoot, or sleep in and lounge; join other guests on an afternoon ebike ride, or learn new tips on photo processing; visit nearby villages, castles, and festivals, hike through endless olive groves, lay by the pool—or do it all! There’s no “one size fits all” day on this trip.

    Photography Shoots and Workshops

    A week of photography workshops. This trip blends two of our favorite passions: cycling and photography. Each day will offer both the option to work on your photography or to explore by bikeor to do both. Formal morning photo shoots amongst the spires and monasteries, plus late light shoots at dusk will highlight photography’s greatest ally: magic light. Magic light is that soft glow that illuminates the world in a way that brings out colors that even the largest Crayola pack hasn’t considered. It’s the light that kisses our eyes and our camera sensors, leaving any semblance of harsh contrast behind.

    As a professional photographer, Russell Graves has been studying light as it hits his eye and camera sensor his entire life. He’s learned not only camera techniques that help capture an image, but how to anticipate and prepare so that he is ready when those magical moments reveal themselves. And, lucky for us, Russell will be with us this week to teach us what he’s learned, to improve our ability to see both with and without a camera, to help us understand what being prepared entails, and to improve our ability to capture and process beautiful photos. And let’s face it, everyone who longs to go to beautiful places wants photographs that do the original justice.

    Cycling in the Alps
    A cycling mecca. There are many options when considering cycling routes through the Alps. There are steep slopes with rocky singletrack; there are bike paths that follow gentle river grades; there are paved lanes and small gravel paths that meander up and down hillsides; and there are busy roads carrying tourists in cars and RVs to all the most popular spots. Of the choices, we’ll avoid technical singletrack and busy roads and fill our days with the little lanes and paths that take us away from crowds—to the places where pure cycling joy lives. Lucky for us, the Alps that most of the world knows for skiing and trekking is also a cycling mecca, surrounded by magnificence and peaceful quiet.
    Exploring Alpine Treasures

    An abundance of treasures. The Austrian Alps lure summer visitors with a symphony of natural wonders. Adventurers seek thrilling hikes through verdant valleys and atop majestic peaks, reveling in the crisp mountain air. The allure of crystal-clear lakes invites serene moments of reflection or exhilarating water sports. Picturesque villages, nestled amidst emerald landscapes, beckon with their charming ambiance and rich cultural experiences. The alpine meadows burst into a vibrant kaleidoscope of wildflowers, captivating artists, photographers, and nature enthusiasts alike. From adrenaline-fueled activities to tranquil respites, the Austrian Alps in summer offer a harmonious blend of beauty and adventure, inviting all to bask in its breathtaking splendor.

     

    A Very Private Villa

    A villa of our own. We’ll stay in a fabulous villa near Saint Anton am Alberg, nestled amongst deep forests, and towering peaks. Luxuriously furnished bedrooms with private baths provide personal space, while expansive indoor and outdoor common areas invite the group to assemble and share experiences. We’ll enjoy meals prepared in our gourmet kitchen, and we’ll lounge on our terrace or take walks through the gardens. Our home for this week will ground us and nourish us and bring us closer to the country that those lucky enough to live here treasure. For one lucky week in the Austrian Alps, we’ll call this villa home.
