Light Landscape Painter

Klaus-Peter Kappest - naturally genuine.

The "Schmallenberg" photographer

Klaus-Peter Kappest is active as a photographer in many different fields. He awakens holiday desires for tourist destinations by creating fascinating images of landscape and nature.

In addition, he travels a lot in the north of our continent in snow and ice to bring us closer to the country and its people with his photo and film reportages. He captures the most beautiful northern light moments and snow formations with his camera.

Even photo documentations of the world of work and industry are presented by Klaus-Peter Kappest in an exciting and surprising way.

And fortunately the Schmallenberger Sauerland has become his new home. Here he lives and here he knows every stone by now. As a home and farm photographer of the Schmallenberger Sauerland and the holiday region Eslohe he has created more than 90% of the tourist picture archive.

A look behind the scenesEverything's real!

We have dedicated our 2019 magazine to the topic of "encounters". Because here in the Schmallenberger Sauerland and the Eslohe holiday region, special encounters are possible: with nature and the landscape, with denad people and with oneself. It is a real, authentic way of encounter that simply does you good.

Together with our photographer and the actress Daniela Bette-Koch, we created pictures for the magazine that show what makes this region so special. Also present: a camera team that captured the stories around the pictures. But see for yourself...
