Are my photography workshops worth it?

Sometimes I am asked if it’s beneficial to attend mine photography workshops? Therefore, I am sharing my thoughts on why you should attend and what to look for when searching for the good one! Anyone interested in travel photography should consider attending a photography workshop, especially one that is an expert organises. Indeed these workshops offer an excellent chance to see, learn from, and exchange ideas with professional photographers. A great workshop provides insight and expertise that photographers cannot find elsewhere. Finally, I think the best reasons to attend a photography workshop is that you can learn how to make better photos and have a unique experiences in a great location.


My Photography Workshops are small, usually with a maximum of 4 people. Therefore, I will spend time with you individually and mix up the groups regularly, so everyone gets a fair share of my time.

We will explore a visual approach and techniques including layering, good use of the environment around you, along with introducing compositional elements that will add depth and detail to your images

Brittany is a spectacular land, but it is good to be prepared to sudden and unpleasant situations. In fact, the weather is definitely variable, so it can range even on a sunny day to a storm of water. Moreover the place is famous for its powerful oceanic storms with winds that sometimes reach 200km / h. So if we have luck to come across a similar weather event is good to accept the situation and have a good anti rain. So, A waterproof backpack cover is a must, to have the equipment always under cover; these are extreme situations, but not improbable, so starting biased is always part of the game

Invest for skills and experience in a Photo tour

I think the best reasons to attend a photography workshop is that you can learn how to make better photos. So i believe that investing in experiences is a much better investment than investing in gear. Also you have some benefit that you don’t find on line or for free. In fact, attending a workshop you can gain distilled wisdom about photography from the instructor.

Also you need to work hard if you actually want to improve your photography. In conclusion ,you have to be really focus and remember yourself often why you are there.

Sustainable Photography

Sustainable photography should be truly important to a responsible traveler. In this regard I try to do my small part and to follow some guidelines when I travel and do my photography workshop in Brittany and Normandy. A sustainable model of photographic culture is absolutely necessary right now. So, in the way we pay attention to these things in our daily life, it is possible to include those passages in our photographic activities.

Come in my photo tour and not only can you get amazinglandscape, but there’s also a veritable array of culinary delights to get stuck into.
