Lech, Austria

Lech, Austria

It’s not very difficult to have winter fun in Lech, Austria.

My client asked whether I did photography in the snow on location. Well… I had not done it before but yes I do do it. I was slightly apprehensive, more whether I would be warm enough as I’m always cold and whether the snow would be too reflective. Of course there was not need to be concerned.

From the flight with Swiss Air to Zurich, then a dedicated coach that takes you from Zurich Airport and drops you off right in the middle of Lech, a good 2,5 hrs; talking about luxury!

Everything was totally wonderful: I’ve fallen in love with Lech, as the pistes are easy to navigate and ski, it’s very leisurely and the weather was ideal. Beautiful blue skies, great play times and great locations to photograph.

Lech still has this authentic feel of a proper ski village yet has all the high end experience you might come to expect from a place like Lech, even the seats on the ski lifts were heated. From cosy bars outside where skiers have their ‘apres ski’ drinks under heaters while still being in full gear, to cosy restaurants that serve rosti, pancakes and of course the best hot chocolates http://www.lechzuers.com.

To respect the privacy of the family, only a couple of images are on this blog.

You probably never thought of having a professional photo shoot done in the snow. It’s fun and you can relax and let me photograph you and your family enjoying the pistes and create special memories of special destinations.
