Pro mountain bike photographer and occasional Singletrack contributor Seb Rogers has been running hugely popular mountain bike photography weekend workshops in the Lake District and the Quantocks for several years.
Now he’s teamed up with Alpine specialists Trail Addiction to offer a week of riding and shooting on pristine Alpine singletrack. The course is aimed at photographers looking to hone their action photography skills on some of the best trails in Europe. Seb said “My classic course format has been a big hit, but a week-long trip to the Alps should provide slightly more experienced photographers with the opportunity to really improve their bike pics. Oh, and the riding’s pretty special, too.”
Starting Saturday 22 August, the course includes a week of Trail Addiction’s second-to-none guided riding in the Les Arcs area of the French Alps, with four days of photo tuition and feedback. The mix of photo tuition and riding is designed to balance riding with shooting, ensuring you get the best experience from the amazing Les Arcs trails. All the trails can be easily accessed by various lifts. There are singletrack trails to suit intermediate to advanced riders, with everything from flowing paths through Alpine meadows to steep, technical, forested rock gardens
The week long course costs £895 (£95 non-refundable deposit secures your place) which includes full board accommodation plus all guiding for a week, and photo tuition from Seb for four days. Riders and photographers will have to pay for their flights along with airport transfers, lift passes and accident insurance, which is compulsory for the course. There are just four places available, so make a move before it’s too late. For more info or to book a place, drop Seb a line (firstname.lastname@example.org)
