    WARNINGS WORKSHOP IN BRITTANY:

    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.

In fact, attending a workshop you can gain distilled wisdom about photography from the instructor.

    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.
