What you'll do

Through this short trip I will "teach you to see" and choose your subject, then how to highlight it to reach the sensitivity of the people targeted if not yours.

9:00 am: Departure from the Saint-Gervais-les-Bains ice rink. small presentation speech to exchange our first names and know who does what in life. Presentation of the applications that will be used in the field.
9:30 am: Start of the 1 hour hike on a route crossing 4 themes:
Photos of plants, Photos of open landscape, Photo of forest landscape, Photos of monuments.
10:30 am: photo editing and debriefing
11:00 am: Release of customers.

Although it will never replace the professional camera, the smartphone evolves and today becomes a photophone. True portal to our virtual double, its compactness and its immediate access make it takes an important part in our lives and allows instant sharing (Instagram) of our photos on social networks.
According to the adage "a picture is worth 1000 words", the transmission of an emotion or a visual message is more impactful than its translation in writing. Being able to send a powerful message to get noticed in the continuous "scrolling" of information that invades us has never been so important to grab the attention of your audience.

At 6 years old I asked my parents for a tent to sleep alone at night in the garden. Behavior can be common at this age, but that says a lot about my fully nature-oriented personality is outdoor sports. After 3 years around the world (Oceania, South East Asia, South America) during which I test products for new brands and write some award-winning travel stories, I returned to France and founded my Ambition Outdoor business in Chamonix at the end of 2017 -Mont-Blanc.
Former European level competitor and MTB Trainer at the Chamonix Sports Club when I started, I am also Medium Mountain Guide specializing in photography in order to translate the language of Nature to better educate you and the facts that have marked local history in from field observations.
