Photography & Video Workshop

November 2-November 9, 2019

Get the most out of your digital photos and videos.

Historic landscapes, stunning natural light, and a mode de vie that takes life’s pleasures as they come provide an incomparable setting for the budding photographer or videographer. Dordogne is far off the beaten path; it’s original, it’s authentic, it’s photogenic.


You will explore simple techniques to enhance your images and discover new ways of seeing.

During the course of this workshop, you will photograph and make video journals of a variety of magnificent sites. Landscape, nature, history and people will provide the subject for your daily video journals and the book you will make from your best photographs.

Necessary equipment: A video-capable digital still camera. Tripod optional.
Computer access and software will be provided.
