Equine-Photography in Switzerland

"San Jon" in Scuol - photo weekend with Fabienne Gassmann from @FrauSternfotografiert


The mountains of the Lower Engadine in Graubünden are so fantastic to make you hold your breath. However, when the leaves and needles of the lark trees turn a warm yellow in autumn, then it is the perfect backdrop for our shooting-weekend  on San Jon. San Jon, a large horse farm with approx. 75 horses, is gently nestled on the eastern slopes of the little town "Scuol". Here you can get a taste of the “Western air”  as well - in addition to lots of horses, there is also a cozy saloon and a guest house with cozy guest rooms in a Western style.

The horses live outside all year round on a large winter paddock with feeding stalls and two huge open stables and in the meadows in summer. For some horses there are also spacious, airy boxes in a hall with wind protection nets. This is especially perfect for old horses because they can eat in peace and at their own pace and even lie down without youngsters annoying them. During the day they go to the paddocks or the meadows.

We want to photograph horses in this really beautiful mountain setting. We plan portrait, free running, forest, stream, up or down.

Since we have a meeting room available, LR and/or Photoshop training is possible between the shoots. If you are interested, please indicate when registering.

The training courses last 3 hours each on Friday and Saturday and must be paid extra.

These coaching sessions are planned depending on the interest and level of knowledge of the participants. Please calculate around CHF 190.00 or EUR 200.00 extra for 3 hours each.

Would you like to come with us?

Our shooting weekend takes place from October 31st. - 03.11. 2024. Arrival is on Thursday evening and departure is planned for Sunday morning. So we have 2 full days to take photos.

You can also easily reach Scuol by train and there is a shuttle from Scuol train station to San Jon.

You can use the resulting photos commercially. We ask that you submit 2 photos per shoot, so a total of 8 or max. 10 images for use by San Jon.

Who is Fabienne and why are we doing this together?

Such a trip (and its preparation) is complex and not a Sunday stroll. We simply share the responsibility and the implementation between 2 people - experienced horse photographers and horse photo tour organizers.

I'm also a big fan of Fabienne's photos. Have a look?
