Photography and Mountaineering in Chamonix

2 days above Chamonix, in the Mont Blanc Massif, to learn mountain photography techniques and take home unforgettable memories, with Thomas, UIAGM guide.


2 Days

All year


I invite you to come with me for two days in search of the best shots to be taken in the Mont Blanc above Chamonix (France) and Courmayeur (Italy).

Two days during which I will have the opportunity to share with you my experience and passion for the mountains, as a guide and photographer. We spend a night uphill, in a refuge, so we can be in the best locations at the sunset and sunrise, and enjoy a beautiful mountain experience together.

The Mont Blanc massif is ideal for this event dedicated to photographers because…

-From there we can see some of the most beautiful mountains of the Alps;

-From there we have access to different locations, which gives us flexibility depending on weather and light conditions;

-There are several huts and therefore different possibilities;

-Nearby we can find Chamonix, a world capital of mountaineering where a particularly convivial atmosphere reigns.

Depending on participants’ level, we will advance in high or medium mountain. We can go:

-To Aiguille du Midi and take the emblematic images on its and Mont Blanc’s edge;

-The side of Albert 1st hut to witness the beautiful lights of the Chardonnet, the Aiguille Verte, Les Drus, La Petite Fourche, etc as well as having the possibility of taking pictures of crevasses and seracs…and all that, 2 hours of walking from the top of the ski lift of the Tour;

-The side of Argentière refuge, to admire the beautiful north faces of the massif (La Verte, Le Triolet, Les Drus, Les Droites, Les Courtes, etc.);

-The side of Couvercle hut to capture the Grandes Jorasses filled with mythical stories of climbers of the past century;

-The side of Torino refuge from the Point Helbronner, onto Courmayeur;

-The side of Lac Blanc in the Aiguilles Rouges; opposite to the massif of Mont Blanc, to catch the best views thereon;


I will bring with me my computer, which we can use in the evening to present the pictures of the day and discuss areas of improvement. I take advantage of this moment to remind the basic principles of mountain photography.

I will make groups of 4 to 6 guests maximum, depending on the difficulty level of the route we choose together. I can add to this tour, which is oriented to photography, a reminder/learning of the basic techniques of alpinism: use of climbing ropes, walking with crampons, use of ice pick, making of main nodes…

I also offer this type of course in the Ecrins Massif.

I invite you to contact me if you are interested in coming to capture together some beautiful pictures in the heart of some of the most beautiful mountains in the world. It would be a great pleasure to take you up there and share with you a unique moment.

About the guide

Guide profile image


Mountain Leader

UIAGM / IFMGA High Mountain Guide
I come from the Hautes-Alpes and I have been immersed in the alpine world since I was young. I turned my sportive and artistic passions into a nice dream... to live and share it.
I've practiced all kind of mountain disciplines for more than 15 years, and today I am a passionate high mountain guide and photographer.
I started off climbing, and throughout my outings and meetings I discovered the universe of the high mountain, the beautiful world present up there.
I have improved my climbing, ski and alpinism skills to become an aspiring high mountain guide in 2010. I have also been a member of the National Male Alpinism Team (ENAM) of the National Mountain and Climbing Federation (FFME) 2009-2012.
With all the experience I gained in the Alps and through different travels around the world (USA, Alaska, China, Australia...), today I transmit and share my passion by taking you on my rope, in a climbing outing, a ski trip or on a beautiful alpine edge!

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.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
