Improve your skills, learn something new

Over the years, our courses have evolved. These days, most people are familiar with digital photography to some degree, so it is not so much about converting from film, but more about how to build your expertise and confidence in getting the results that you want, and to find new ways of getting creative with photography. So our current series of Stepping Stones photography holidays use a modular concept, enabling us to easily adapt to the needs of our guests.

Whatever your ability, build your skils and enjoy getting creative in inspirational locations with a professional photographer to guide you. Hands on workshops and plenty of excursions to explore this beautiful region of France.

For those new to photography we will show you the fundamentals of good photographic techniques and how to avoid common mistakes, leading to perfect photos every time!

If you are already an avid photographer – get immersed and inspired and drive your photography to the next level out on location, or with lighting, layers and advanced shooting techniques in our fully equipped studio with Elinchrom studio lighting.

Learn how to use the most important features of photo editing and management software with techniques to simply enhance and bring out the best from your images in our digital darkroom running Photoshop Lightroom and Photoshop Elements.

Great Foundations

If you are a newcomer to digital photography or have been using a camera for quite some time but are not getting the best from it we can help. We will provide an excellent foundation for all your future photography.

We want to take away the mysteries that hinder producing great photographs and create some magic as you learn to see things in a new light.

Gaining a good understanding of the technical aspects to photography is essential to achieving consistent results and will enable you to move on to using the controls in a more creative way.

Control and quality

Once the techniques are second nature, the discovering and capturing of imags will take on a new dimension.

We aim to build your technical and artistic skills, increasing your confidence and giving you the opportunity to use your imagination to make stronger images.

Then it's not just about having captured that strong image, it is also what you can do with it after it leaves the camera.

We will introduce you to the amazing world of Adobe Lightroom to manage, manipulate, print and share your images.
