One week photography workshops in Crozant, France for up to 6 photographers. Enjoy Les Marronniers (The Chestnuts), a former farm set in the tranquil Creuse Department of France’s South West Limousin region. Immerse yourself in a structured photography experience to bring your work up to the next level; technique, composition and processing will be studied. You will be transported by minibus to places of historical interest and natural beauty, so all you have to do is relax, take photographs and enjoy delicious home cooking.
Since all of us love the exquisite countryside, castles and villages of France, we will spend as much time as possible in the field under guidance taking spectacular images. This program is a blend, combining the best of a workshop and a photo tour.
I especially enjoy helping photographers at different levels of mastery, and I'm keen to share what I have learned with others to support their learning. If you are looking to produce great images, I have a lot of technical and aesthetic experience and would be pleased to share it with you. Photography and teaching are my passions!
In this one week workshop you will capture landscapes, village-scapes, rural buildings, ruins, nature subjects and close-ups. You will learn how to optimise these images in Photoshop CS6 or Elements to create stunning images. There will be plenty of time to answer all your questions and help you develop your photographic style. One of the first things we will do together is to sit down and agree an itinerary and goals for the week.
This workshop is for a small group of 5 or 6 photographers and therefore provides lots of individual attention and allows us to tailor the training content to your level and interests. The week being fully catered allows us more time to devote ourselves to your photographic goals and interests. The goal of the workshop is that you return a better, more knowledgeable photographer!

The cost for this workshop is £850 per person which includes the workshop trips/transportation, accommodation, meals and all tuition. You are responsible for transportation to the location in France, although we are happy to collect you from Limoges Airport or a local railway station.
