Infos & Booking


During a weekend training in the South Vercors / Drôme valley, I propose you to improve your technical level in photography and your artistic skills on this exciting theme of macrophotography. This will be the opportunity to immortalize wild orchids and various butterflies.

This initiation to macro photography will allow you to approach its specific aspects: handling of the camera stand, use of macro accessories, depth of field, artistic rendering, etc.

I will share my naturalist view of flowers and the notions of responsible attitude towards flora.

Finally, you will do a daily analysis and sharing of the images obtained.

Macrophotography is an exciting subject that creates a very particular aesthetic that differs greatly from other photographic styles. Capturing unusual shots of a flower, an insect, a straw makes you aware of all the life present just under our feet. Macrophotography makes us aware of the importance of changing our way of looking at things in order to develop our artistic sense. This weekend is an opportunity for you to learn about this art form by first learning the specific techniques of macrophotography, such as how to use a tripod, how to manage depth of field, and how to render artistic results. You will be able to create your first macro photographs or improve your skills with the advice of an experienced instructor.

This weekend is for beginners or experienced photographers, passionate, and eager to initiate or improve in macro photography.

If you wish to broaden your skills in photography, I also offer a training in animal photography, especially vultures.
