Chamonix Adventure Festival, which runs from 31 March - 2 April 2016, has announced the launch of film and photography courses as part of this year's festival. The two 1-day workshops will be run by world class professionals; photographer Dan Milner and filmmaker Sébastien Montaz-Rosset.
Adventure photographer Dan Milner is used to dealing with difficult conditions in far-flung locations. Having had the pleasure of shooting some of the snow and bike world's most legendary names from Jeremy Jones, Travis Rice and Terje Haakonsen, to Matt Hunter and Hans Rey, his images have appeared in some of the world's most respected mainstream press from Mens Health and The Financial Times to Bicycling and dozens of specialist sport titles in between.
Dan will run a one day workshop, 1st April, on how to create more impact with adventure photography. Sharing tips and techniques for getting the best images in the outdoors, get an insight into how Dan creates his trademark thought provoking images, with a sprinkling of anecdotes from shoots around the world.
Filmmaker Sébastien Montaz-Rosset will present a one day film workshop also running 1st April. Explore how to get amazing results using the minimum of equipment and discover some of the latest innovations in adventure filmmaking.
Sébastien has recently produced a series of heightened reality videos filmed with 360 degree film cameras and the technology is one of several new techniques he believes will revolutionise adventure filming.
Sébastien is known for his 'less is more' approach to be able to get in the midst of the action, working with ultra runner Kilian Jornet on his record breaking mountain expeditions.
The courses will be held in easy access locations outdoors, taking advantage of the unrivalled landscapes and mountains of Chamonix. The mecca of trail running, mountain biking, rock climbing, skiing & mountaineering, Chamonix offers the perfect setting with a highly diverse set of subjects to work with.
The Adventure Film & Photo School enters its fifth year providing a unique opportunity for aspiring photographers and filmmakers to gain unique insights from some of today's most innovative adventure image makers. Participants will be able to make the most of the festival programme, with film screenings, art & photography exhibits and adventure sports events scheduled throughout the festival programme.
