Calling all budding amateur photographers – be sure to save the date for a truly memorable experience in the South of France next summer.
Running from 21st to 27th of July, 2014, photography lovers from around the world will have the opportunity to participate in a seven day photography retreat in the beautiful South of France.
Participants will have the chance to get their questions answered by internationally acclaimed photographer Beatriz Ronzero during the first annual Provence Photography Experience.
What is F stop? What is aperture? How does shutter speed affect my photos? How can I shoot in manual for more control? You can leave your dusty photography manual at home however, because the classroom has never looked so inspiring: an ancient monastery, a lakeside sunset, and sweeping lavender fields.
Provence Photography Experience organizes the transportation, food, and location shootings, as well as workshops and question and answer sessions. Participants only have come with a camera in their hands and a desire to explore and create.
“People want to get more out of their photos. When they look at their photos they want to smell the freshly baked croissant, they want to hear the sounds of the marketplace, they want to remember the way they felt at that moment, and mastering the camera gives them that opportunity”, says Provence Photography Experience founder James Pouliot.
The Provence Photography Experience is not just a technical workshop, as the name suggests it’s an experience. The week will focus on photography, but will also be an exploration into the culture, history, and landscape of one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
