Immerse yourself in a week of photography under the guidance of Paul and Maria. Explore the glorious French Pyrenees with your camera and come back with new photographic skills that will elevate your work to a new plane! Improve your confidence and enjoy learning new ways to express yourself photographically in this magnificent landscape, just a stones throw from the delightful French town of Foix.
Our workshop is based at Chez Arran, a renovated farmstead that lies on a sunny hillside, in a deep and impressive mountain valley right at the heart of the Pyrenees. It is now a renowned activity centre that caters for the creative as well as the adventurous.
We will visit authentic French villages and markets, and stunning landscape locations. Together we will eat, drink and sleep photography in a warm, friendly environment with like-minded enthusiasts.
The week will consist of talks, projects and opportunities designed to inspire you. And because we have two teachers, we can work with beginners and advanced participants at the same time, giving you loads of one to one attention.
We will be exploring:
- Camera Skills
- Approaching new subject matter with individuality and imagination
- Tackling photographic projects and working thematically
- Digital Workflow
- Portable Flash
- Sequencing Images
- Camera Vision
- Location Shooting
- Critiques, and
- Portfolio Reviews
In a supportive environment, you will receive practical feedback alongside the advice and help necessary to improve your photography. And Maria and I will be happy to share our individual working methods and pass on our experience and tips. So do join us for a week of challenge, entertainment, fabulous photography and FUN! We would love to welcome you to our workshop 'Ascend to New Heights' in the beautiful French Pyrenees.

The Photographers Place 1976 to 1996
The fabled Photographers Place was the first residential photography workshop in Britain and ran in the the Peak District of Derbyshire for 20 years.
The most renowned photographers of that era gave master classes there and many of today‘s contemporary photographers have been influenced by attending those workshops.
