Photo walk Hamburg Airport

This is how beautiful 111 years look

Planespotting from the best perspective - directly on the grounds of Hamburg Airport!

Very exclusively you get to the best photo spots of the airport, such as the apron, to shoot the perfect picture. Experience the fascination of aircraft photography up close - you rarely get this close to aircraft arriving and landing.

In keeping with the 111th anniversary of Hamburg Airport, the PHOTOPIA Academy is presenting the fascination of aircraft photography with this photo walk.

In addition, you will gain exciting insights into flight operations and the airport grounds in the model show using a detailed model on a scale of 1:500.

The photo walk will be accompanied by the experienced trainer and owner of the FF photo school Frank Fischer and will be available to you with advice and practical help.

Frank Fischer has been a photo trainer since 2001 and is the owner of FF-Fotoschule. In countless workshops, webinars and on photo trips he has taught thousands of photographers the fun and new techniques in photography. For several years he has been organizing the PHOTOPIA Fototörns under the guidance of the artistic director of PHOTOPIA, Christian Popkes.

Please bring the following equipment for the photowalk: Camera with telephoto lenses / focal lengths (min. 200 mm), a monopod if necessary and possibly a small step (flash not allowed).
