HERE’S A CHOICE OF ITINERARIES FOR THIS SPRING:

CHAMONIX - MEET & PHOTOGRAPH A GREAT CHEF THEN OFF TO DISCOVERY NOOKS & CRANNIES OF TOWN
Before getting on the off-the-beaten track through Chamonix, we’ll pop into Chef Michey Bourdillat’s Matafan kitchen to discreetly observe the lunch preparations in the luxurious Hotel Mont-Blanc. After the walk, plan to eat one of your best lunchtime meals ever. A unique opportunity for foodies. The menu of the day at the Matafan - beverages aside - is €23.

SERVOZ - A RURAL VILLAGE OF FARMS, RED COWS, APPLE BLOSSOMS & A BAROQUE CHURCH
A traditional village of farmers, artists and lucky people who have chosen a quality of life environnement to enjoy. Servoz isfamous for it’s stone fountains, architecture and red cows. All this with an extra dose of sunshine. Apple & pear orchards will be in bloom and we’ll have a date with a herd of cows for the milking.

IF YOUR A GOOD AT MATH, THEN YOU WON’T NEED THIS PHOTO-CLASS. BUT IF YOUR NOT....

This walk makes learning technical photography stress-less - or almost - and sometimes even fun. Mostly because it’s based on seeing with your eyes and not with your camera’s functions. For either modern digital or traditional film cameras.
For one or two participants max.

VALLORCINE - A UNIQUE MOUNTAIN VILLAGE OF ARCHITECTURE, AUSTERE BEAUTY & SINCERE SMILES
At the north end of the valley lies one of the most curious mountain villages in the Alpes. We’ll visit the heart of the ancient Walser hamlets before making a stop in Guy Ancey’s café where his famous hot chocolat will be sure to give us a lift.

COUPEAU, LES HOUCHES - LATE AFTERNOON LIGHT MAGIC IN A NATURAL RESERVE
Perhaps the most impressive view of the Mont Blanc range is to be seen from this alpine plateau. Ancient larch wood chalets in a luminous birch forest and a well-kept secret location for some of the more rare alpine flowers to be found in the valley make this walk especially interesting for the macro-photographer. Young and budding naturalists will enjoy the discovery.

MARTIGNY – THE GIANADA ART FOUNDATION & IT’S GARDEN + THE VINEYARD HAMLET OF PLAN CERISIER
For a distinct change of scenery: a Roman arena, a world-class art foundation and a charming wine-grower’s hamlet surrounded by grape vines on steep slopes where we can stop for a glass of wine, slice of fruit or hazlenut tarte...

OFFER YOURSELF A POETIC PORTRAIT AS A GIFT - A PERSONAL PHOTO-SHOOT AS YOU LIKE IT
Leave your camera behind and let me concentrate on taking the photos of you in a natural setting. Or perhaps of you with your family, friends and even your pets. Or you may want a photo-story done to remember a special moment or event during your holiday. We’ll choose together the location and the time. Ask for a quote to know the prices and conditions.
