The Course

These stimulating and exciting seven day and four day courses are perfect for developing new skills as well as offering a very enjoyable holiday. With a maximum of four people, to guarantee high quality personal tuition, and designed for both film and digital cameras, it's suitable for all levels of experience. The main emphasis is on photographing the dramatic scenery and landscapes of the region, which also provide excellent backdrops for portraits. We now shoot night shots around the village usually in B/W which is great fun and very popular.

On most days there are visits to a variety of locations: the rugged Corbières hills gashed by rocky ravines, spectacular Cathar Castles perched on high peaks and dramatic mountain ranges. Lunch is usually followed by free time and then a late afternoon excursion to take advantage of the low setting sun and atmospheric Mediterranean light.

In the evenings there is time to discuss the technical aspects of landscape and portrait photography and review our achievements of the day.

But its not all hard work! The area produces some of the best red wine in the Languedoc and there is a visit to a local vineyard. Weather permitting, you can go swimming in idyllic gorges and lakes nearby. There is plenty of time to explore and to enjoy the inspiring light and scents of the beautiful land of the Corbiere.

"I enjoyed the scenery, the food, the wine, the comfortable house and the photography. I am going home totally chilled out and will happily recommend it to others. It's been wonderful!" - Esther
