3 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep


Description

Chamonix valley is well known for its mountains, its mythical summit… Mont-Blanc and its beautiful hikes. The Balcons du Mont-Blanc offer exceptional panoramas over the Mont-Blanc massif. Sunrises behind the range and sunsets creating shimmering colours on the Mont-Blanc.

The photography themes of these 3 days that we will spend together are the following: panorama, mountain and sunset.

Come to one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the Alps and discover how light evolves throughout the day. The mountains, needles, glaciers, vegetation and fauna render this massif remarkable. You will greatly enjoy capturing beautiful images.

I propose to you the following program:

Day 0: I can welcome you in the accommodation of your choice. I can make some suggestions (not included in the price).

Day 1: Meeting at Chamonix at 9 AM

Departure; we will go from refuge to refuge. Equipped with our cameras we will hike, and by going higher we will see the summits better and better. We will reach the refuge.

Day 2: From refuge to refuge

The morning light allows us to take pictures of the panoramas and to enjoy the mountain environment. This refuge is an invitation to enjoy the sunset.

Day 3: Chamonix

Facing Mont-Blanc, we will be able to continue taking pictures in the early morning. We can walk around the refuge and then the hike will reach the valley heading to Chamonix. Group separation.

The highlights of these 3 days are:

  • Supervision by a mountain professional

  • Limited car journeys

  • Taking our time to take pictures

I invite you to contact me if you are interested in photography and beautiful landscapes. I will be pleased to make you discover these fantastic panoramas as well as helping you improve your photography skills.

About the guide

I'm an international mountain leader (UIMLA) working the all year round in the mountains with different types of clients. I love sharing my expertise, knowledge and passion for nature with people who wants to enjoy a good time in the mountains. We can go from 1/2 to several days together.
I will let you discover the mountains, the nature and the fauna. I particularly enjoy approaching animals, you should come and experience it with me. I'm also organizing specific hikes for photographers which allow us to see the environment and humans differently.
My specialties are photography and handicapped people who I bring up there !
I also enjoy travelling abroad because I love discover new things and learn from new cultures.
Please get in touch with me if you come in Haute Savoie. It will be my pleasure to guide you in my backcountry.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
