Nature and Landscape Photography

Photo workshops, Photo and video workshops

Daniel Rodrigues, photographer and mountain guide with the Compagnie des Guides de Chamonix, will take you on the balcony trails at the foot of the Chamonix peaks with a camera slung over his shoulder. He will teach you the basics of nature photography and will pass on his little secrets for taking sumptuous landscape photos.


We will leave in the early morning to go to the plan de l’aiguille. The northern faces of the Chamonix Needles provide the setting, with marmots and ptarmigan acting as extras. We will learn how to use our camera, while discovering the techniques of taking pictures in the mountains. Flowers, fauna or landscapes will be captured by our camera during this half-day initiation.


Discover the basics of photography applied to the mountains. Understand the mechanisms and priorities for successful photography.
