Short Workshop in Photography

Description | Schedule | Workshops | Suggested equipment


Description


The short workshop in photography is addressed mainly to those who want to better control their camera and apply some basic techniques, without going too much into technical details. The workshop is for both film and digital photography. A reflex camera is not required. A compact point and shoot digital camera is sufficient.

The workshop is distributed over an entire day. It will be held outdoors. The location may vary depending on the clients’ requests and the workshop itself. In case of rain, the workshops can be given under canvas cover. Most workshops are followed by a practice session where you will be able to apply the techniques learned during the workshops. A guide / photographer will be available on location to answer questions and give advice and suggestions. This concept allows learning at your level of knowledge in photography. This way, you can push your learning further if you are up to it.

We hope that you will find all the information needed. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us.

It would be a pleasure to meet you.
