Description

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;

-Etc.

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.
