Mountain tours and workshops with professional photographers in Austria

One of the favorite autumn leisure activities of Austrians is walking, hiking at and on mountains - which is an easily accessible leisure in this country as around 60% of the territory is mountainous. This is also the reason why high-tech outdoor clothing such as hoodies made of water repellent fabrics and footwear with non-slipping soles for the better grip count to the best-sellers in late summer, early fall.

The upcoming autumn season will color the landscape again into a red, gold, brown, green outfit and it's as if the color range motivates autodidact photographers every year again to share mountain images with their friends and the unknown public online. A few are great, some of the pictures are nice, and most of the shared posts don't impress technically. Self-learning is good; but it's far more time saving to get advice from a professional.
