In a bucolic setting, in the heart of the Pyrenees, in Espezel, Richard Petit teaches large format photography. Thanks to a smart mix of History of Art, optical theory, technical know how and shooting exercises, the practice of the view camera becomes a pleasure and an enchantment. The transition from the monorail to the 4x5" folding camera and vice versa allows trainees to decide which equipment best suits their practice. Richard's patience and generosity are the keys to the success of this exciting and very formative workshop.
