Autumn in Auvergne phototour (2016)

New in 2016Autumn-in-Auvergne

– Autumn in Auvergne |  Phototour
(for Nordic Vision phototours – photography travel compagny )

one of the most beautiful seasons of the year. A season full with colors and atmosphere

  • Forest lakes, brooks and little waterfalls
  • Landscape- and macro photography mix
  • Abstract photography with Intentional Camera Movement technique
  • Guided by photographer Kristel Schneider

During the 7 days we will explore this beautiful mysterious forest landscape and visit a couple of lakes in the middle of the forest. We will explore the high Chaumes du Forez with its wetlands and open landscapes. You will discover a beautifull old glacial valley, Vallée du Fossat. We strive to organize at least two photo discussions, focusing on how to create effective compositions (what works what does not) learning to look differently (eye for detail) and depending on the groups experience some basic image processing. The program includes short walks in nature to forests and lakes (depending on the weather conditions) and we will drive higher up in the mountains. This is not just a photo-tour but a workshop with professional guidance, where the group is kept small so that everyone gets personal attention and practical tips in the field.

Date:  October 9 – 15, 2016
7 days – 6 nights

Website portfolio update | Latest Work

update
by Kristel Schneider

Spring time, the season of colors and new life.
For me the time where I focus a lot on flower photography, especially the last couple of weeks I visited my favorite flower ‘hotspots’ in the area
I was happy to see that the wild orchids were doing very good this year, some species came out even too early for me as they were already to damaged to photograph.
Nature is acting pretty unpredictable over the last couple of years and the flora is adapting better to this than our nature flower guides. So it is better to see for yourself and look when
certain species are out or not. Because of the weather (hot, warm, wet, wind) I returned to the flower areas a couple of times to see  their blooming status and to have better photography light conditions.

Today I updated my portfolio | Latest Work, to give you a small overview of what I have been photographing lately.
Feel free to have a look at my website

New year new beginnings!

Happy New Year !

New year new beginnings, I am happy to announce that I have joined Dutch photo-travel agency, Nordic Vision photo tours, with its great team of photographers : Theo Bosboom, Jan and Mart Smit, Wilco Dragt, Marten Bril, Charles Borsboom.  At the moment Nordic Vision organizes photo tours to spectacular photographic destinations such as Iceland, Norway, Scotland, Nordern Ireland, China, France or Spain.

My first tour for Nordic Vision will be organized in my own living area, Auvergne | France :  the best of Auvergne, 19-25 july 2015

A 7-day photography workshop : we will explore Puy de Dôme hot-spots, its diverse hillside landscape scenery, sunflowers and wine fields, which make it the so-called Tuscany of Auvergne. We will look at how the spectacular and unique light conditions play on the dramatic Massif Central mountains and volcano chains. Explore the Billom area and its picturesque villages, through the maze of small hillside roads and small hiking trails, in the later afternoon light. On the way you will discover one of Auvergne’s most beautiful valleys, National Reserve, Vallée de Chaudefour and get some fresh sparks at the many local waterfalls.
