Lesphotographes.org is a site with the association
Lesphotographes.com is an online magazine that publishes interviews with photographes and players in the world of photography and images. The founders of this magazine wanted to create this new activity to allow the public to meet experienced photographers and to have their own new experiences. Thanks to the practical and technical classes, we hope to pass on knowledge and pleasure about silver film and digital photography. We also hope to offer a large array of classes and thematic workshops about historical techniques.
Our era of communication based on images, makes it so that the universe of photography isn't monolithic, but multifaceted. It is constantly evolving. Without trying to represent all the currents in an exhaustive manner, we wanted our photographers to reflect the richenss of this diversity. That's why our team is composed of women and men with very different paths and approches. Their diversity is based on today's image of the world of photography.

Classes and Workshops
In certain classes or workshops, we have a digital camera available for rent. Please consult the list here. This option is made visible with the icon "Camera Rental" in the description of the class or workshop. If the icon isn't listed, you should bring your own camera.
Do you want to organize an event about photography for friends, or for a team building experience? Do you have an idea about a class or a workshop in which you wish to participate? Would you like an individual learning experience over a full year? Would you like to plan a photography trip among friends?
For each class and workshop, icons indicate what materials are accepted. In many cases, it is possible to take a class with a compact camera. Don't hesitate to contact us with questions about your particular case.
Don't hesitate to contact us and tell us about your idea. We'll be happy to listen and offer our services.
Yes, it's possible with many of our photographers. Use our private class form. We're happy to listen and offer our services.
To determine your level:
- you've just acquired a camera (of any model) and you've never done any photography, or you have done photography, but always with the "automatic" option and your first results didn't reach your expectations --> you're a "beginner."
- you have had a camera for a while and you know the settings but you still have many questions. At the time of the class or workshop, you wish to discover new techniques, change your habits and enlarge your potential creativity. We consider that you have acquired the basic notions of depth of field, composition, shutter speeds, ISO, etc. --> you're an "intermediate."
- you're no longer limited by the technical elements and you've got your own style, but you want to keep pushing your limits, practice and exchange with peers of a similar level through trips, workshops on new subjects, or meet well-known photographers --> you're "advanced."
In order to make homogenous groups and guarantee that our students have a quality learning experience, we must respect the notion of "levels." If you are a beginner, we invite you to consult our list of classes that allow you to access intermediate levels. This way, you can quickly feel more a ease and then have full access to a more developped, demanding learning experiences at the intermediate level.
Our definition of a "beginner":
you've just acquired a camera (of any model) and you've never done any photography, or you have done photography, but always with the "automatic" option and your first results didn't reach your expectations.
Our definition of the "intermediate" level:
you have had a camera for a while and you know the settings but you still have many questions. At the time of the class or workshop, you wish to discover new techniques, change your habits and enlarge your potential creativity. We consider that you have acquired the basic notions of depth of field, composition, shutter speeds, ISO, etc.
lesphotographes.org does not offer online photo classes, neither free nor for pay. We believe that human contact, and the interactions between the students and the photographers are indespensable.
The members of our educational team are passionate about the subject they teach and they are selected for their pedagogy and their experience. Check out the page of all our photographers to know more.
After each class or workshop, you will be asked your opinion on the presentation of your experience. It's thanks to your opinions, which teacher can read, that our classes will be reevaluated and given a new perspective of the student.
Enrollment & Cancellations
Contact us and leave your contact information, including the precise class or workshop that interests you. We'll enroll you on the waiting list. Then we will choose a date for a second class/workshop as soon as possible. When this new date is set, you'll be the first to know about it.
You can cancel your enrollment and be reimboursed one month in advance. After the time of one month has passed, as up until one week before the class/workshop, you will be placed in a different class/workshop of the same price.* One week before the date of the class/workshop, you can no longer cancel your enrollment.
*If the new class/workshop is less expensive than the one you wish to cancel, you will be reimbursed the difference, or you will benefit from a credit for a future class.
