Teaching mountain photography is something I have been very keen on doing, initially through my books (and between us, there may be another one coming up soon) but increasingly in person. It was only a matter of time before I started to offer workshops, but heavy logistics to ensure safety and alternative solution for bad weather had always stopped me. Well, the day has finally come, and I am very happy to announce that I will be running such a workshop for the second edition of the Alpine ARC’ademy, organized by Arc’teryx in Chamonix in mid-June.
We will start with the last Aiguille du Midi bin, around 4pm on Friday, 14th of June, then head to the Cosmiques Hut to have a short class, before heading back out to shoot another ARC’ademy group bivying on the glacier. With some luck, we’ll have a superb sunset on Glacier des Bossons and Mont Blanc. We’ll rise early the next day for sunrise, shoot some easy climbing with Arc’teryx athletes before crossing the Vallée Blanche, an easy but spectacular glacier walk. Finally, we’ll all come down via the Panoramique cablecar from Helbronner, just in time for a beer in Chamonix. All of course with mountain guides for safety.
You can find all the details on the workshop page, and I suggest booking soon if you are interested, as there is a very limited number of spots.
See you there!
Edit: since the original workshop sold out in a couple of hours, we have added another session, immediately after the first one, starting on Saturday 15th at 4pm. Still a few spots available as I write this.
