The trekking takes place mainly in Valsassina, in the Orobic Alps of the provinces of Lecco, Bergamo and Sondrio. The starting point is the municipalities of Valsassina and Val Varrone.
Most of the photo trekking follow paths and mule trackscan and can be classified as E = "Hiking" in the Italian Alpine Club (CAI) hiking difficulty scale.
The greater or lesser degree of commitment of each trekking depends mainly on: the overall distance; the type of route and the quality of the bottom of the trails; the morphology of the environment and the total height difference.
I want to be able to convey to you the love for nature and the value of your gaze through the lens.
Each trekking is an adventure and each shot tells an experience, expresses your inner world, the emotions you are experiencing at that moment. For this I believe that the most beautiful way of communicating them is through a story in pictures, an inner journey step by step in search of your personal photographic language.
By being inspired and intrigued by the richness of the mountain environment, the camera becomes the privileged means to experiment and give voice to your personal style, to compose a history of places that shows your point of view to share with others through an exchange of impressions and experiences.
During these treking you will discover the beauty of the landscape full of wide views and always surprising in detail.
You will then learn the different techniques of landscape photography.
I will help you above all:
The treks have a duration of one day or two days (in this case the overnight stay is provided in the refuge) in order to capture the best and most suggestive light conditions.
We follow paths that lead to the mountains and we make stops to take photographs along the route at particularly significant points.
Photo trekking want to be a pleasant and engaging educational experience for each participant.
The number of people who can take part in the trekkings is limited in order to:
Depending on the type of trek, the number varies from a minimum of five to a maximum of seven participants.
Recommended equipment includes:
Being in a mountain environment, you need to be equipped with the right clothing suitable for weather conditions and physical needs, and with the right equipment to best deal with every situation.
It is therefore good to always have in your backpack:
I also recommend the trekking poles, useful both in the climbs and in the descents as they help maintain balance and unload the weight of the backpack.
Obviously the shoes must be specific for trekking or trail running.
In winter it is good to always carry a pair of simple crampons and, depending on the route, gaiters and snowshoes.
Every participant in trekking is covered by a nominative insurance policy that protects against accidents and injuries that may occur during the trek.
This insurance provides for search and rescue also by helicopter, in addition civil liability coverage for any physical and material damage that each participant may cause to third parties.
The insurance fee is included in the excursion price.
In order for each excursion to be a pleasant and positive experience for oneself and for others, it's advisable that you asses your physical condition, your preparation and your needs, before embarking on any trekking that requires concentration and commitment,
Furthermore common sense should always guide your choices especially in the mountains, and your life is always more important than a photo. So always pay attention to where you put your feet, not to stray from the trails and lean out.
The best photo is the one that sees us all together at the end of the day!
