Description

Photo-hiking, finally the opportunity to walk to the rhythm of the photographer!

Since 2013, I associate my skills of photographer and hiking guide to offer photo training, including photo-hiking. My goal is to give you the tools to improve your creativity to make beautiful photos.

The camera sometimes appears like a complicated machine and is hard to tame, especially when you have a DSLR. Yet it is not so difficult to become master of the device and leave the automatic mode. For this you have to understand the three basic parameters of a photo and the operation of the settings. From here you can more effectively discover different techniques or photo styles: landscape, macro, portrait, night, yarns ...

That's why I propose a training offer on two levels:

  • Level 1: understand the operation of your device and master it to "Use technology at the service of creativity",
  • Level 2: discover different techniques or photo styles in more detail and thus "Develop your creativity" during photo-hiking,
  • and also levels 1 & 2: during a photo-hiking weekend.

The photo-hiking weekend that I propose here is the third of the proposals. I welcome beginners as initiates who want to improve because I treat both levels of training.

The so-called "Level 2" half-day photo hikes are the subject of another DirectMountain offer.

You can find all the presentation and the program on my website www.xaviermordefroid.photo.

Program

If you are passionate about photography, you may be frustrated on some hikes because we hurry you up, you understand that others are waiting for you! Well it's the opportunity to hike with photographers but especially take pictures and improve.

The weekend begins with the climb to the refuge punctuated by interventions and shooting. Arriving at the hut, we will settle down and continue training with a drink.

After the meal, we will leave to spot above the refuge and enjoy the last lights.

The next day, you will continue to go up to get the ibex. When you have photographed them well, we will finish our descent by taking back the rest of our equipment at the hut.

The price includes

  • Supervision by the photographer hiking guide

The price does not include

  • Half-board accomodation at the hut (to be paid directly overthere)
  • Picnics
