The Photo Book for Your Winter Holidays

Winter time is photo time. Winter mountain panoramas, snow-covered landscapes and the children’s first attempts at skiing are excellent subjects for taking pictures. In a winter holiday photo book, you can compile the most beautiful snapshots using numerous tools and templates and thus keep your very special winter moments in memory.

Capturing shared experiences during the winter holidays

No matter if you’re using the smartphone or the action cam - a photo of the whole ski group, a steep descent or an après-ski party will be quickly stored in your device. To make sure your winter photos turn out great, we've put together a few tips for taking photos in the snow:

Thus, after the winter holidays, a large number of photos has accumulated, and these have to be processed, sorted and selected. To make is easier to find all of your best photos from the holiday, it is a good idea to roughly sort out your photos during the holidays: Simply spend a few minutes at the end of each day to delete blurred, out-of-focus or otherwise unusable shots from your camera. This is a good way to reduce the total amount of photos, so you can quickly select the best ones for your Photo Book later.

Selecting photos for the Photo Book

If you manage to get the right mix of photos, your photo book will become a real eye-catcher. There are no limits to your imagination here. For example, you can create small collages that combine mountain panoramas at sunset and action photos from the ski slope. Of course, winter sports enthusiasts should not be missing from the photo book - single and group photos will show the experiences of the trips made together. In between you can also insert pictures of little breakdowns. Later on, when you look at the photo book with friends and family, there will always be something to laugh about and to reminisce together.

Structuring your Photo Book: chronological or thematic?

Once the images are selected, you will need to decide on the structure of your photo book:

  • classic chronological sequence of the winter holidays
  • thematic design (e.g. arrival, accommodation, ski slope, food photos, children’s snowman)
  • a mix of photos just as you like it

If you mix the photos, your photo book will appear livelier, since neither time nor thematic limits are set.


When sorting the images, group them by theme or chronologically. This makes it easier to create the Photo Book later.
