We will visit authentic French villages and markets, and stunning landscape locations. Together we will eat, drink and sleep photography in a warm, friendly environment with like-minded enthusiasts.
The week will consist of talks, projects and opportunities designed to inspire you. And because there are two teachers, we can work with beginners and advanced participants at the same time, giving one to one attention that we are able to give.
We will be covering:
- Camera skills
- Approaching new subject matter with individuality and imagination
- Tackling photographic projects and working thematically
- Digital workflow
- Portable flash
- Sequencing images
- Camera vision
- Location shooting
- Critiques, and

We will demonstrate our individual working methods and share our experience and tips. And we aim to provide a supportive environment where you will receive practical feedback alongside the advice and help necessary to improve your photography.
So do join us for a week of challenge, entertainment, fabulous photography and FUN! We would love to welcome you to our workshop ‘Ascend to New Heights’ in the beautiful French Pyrenees.
