Big cruise ships in close up

Shipspotting on the Elbe River - together with ship expert and photograph Thomas Kunadt


Thomas Kunadt belongs to the most popular "Shipspotters" in Germany. The "Hamburger Abendblatt" introduces him as the probably best ship photograph in Germany. In his career he nearly took half a million photos of big ships. Those are his passion which is visible in every detail of his work. "It was a theatre stage on which ships passed by: The "Elbe", the horizon and the esthetic aspect fascinates me. Ships have a meaning of distance, freedom, greatness and each has its very own moment."



We invite you to experience one of his tours on board of the "Kleine Freiheit". The tours start at St. Pauli-Landungsbrücken or Blankenese and last 2,5 hours. During the journey Thomas Kunadt is going to explain the special features of the ships, give insights in the world of "Seamanship" and provides you with some hints of how to take the best ship photography.
