Your Best Mountain Photos Ever: Photo and Film Classes in Chamonix, France

Here’s an idea. Register for the Adventure Photo School, running August 20-23, 2012 in Chamonix, France, then use your new found skills to grab some awesome shots during your self guided Tour du Mont Blanc or Hiker’s Haute Route. Both hiking tours begin in Chamonix, France, which make this year’s Chamonix Adventure Festival and accompanying photo courses an easy add on.

This year’s Chamonix Adventure Festival takes place August 20-26, 2012. There’s an initial one-day workshop on August 20, which lays the groundwork for improving your photography, followed by the three-day Adventure Photo School covering everything from equipment and composition to post production. Take the one-day workshop as a standalone course, or use it as a primer for the more advanced three-day course.

How awesome would it be to take outdoor photography classes in Chamonix and then apply your skills during your ensuing hike!

What about aspiring film makers?

There’s a course for you too! The three-day Adventure Film School runs during the same peroid and focuses on movie making skills from novice to expert. Award-winning outdoor filmmaker Paul Diffley, together with local Sébastien Montaz-Rosset, will offer tips, tricks and practial information for filmmaking on and off camera. What better place to dabble in movie making, (or hone your skills), than in the spectacular mountain setting surrounding Chamonix.

Let us know if you’re interested in attending the festival and/or the accompanying courses. We can help you plan your hiking tour around these dates.
