There are few outdoor with locations more visually stunning than the Alps around Chamonix, which makes the option to improve your outdoor photography or film making there as part of the Chamonix Adventure Festival, a pretty attractive one.
Taking place from 20-26 August, 2012, the festival brings together outdoor adventurers, explorers and enthusiasts in the heart of the Alps where they can share tales, showcase talents and take in the latest outdoor films.
As part of the event, the Chamonix Adventure Festival film and photography courses, give budding outdoor film-makers and photographers the chance to learn from experts in an incredibly diverse environment which could have you working on anthing from biking through to mountaineering.
On the photographic side, the courses are run by Corey Rich and Scott Wilson. There's an initial one-day workshop on 20 August, which lays the groundwork for improving your photography generally, followed by the full three-day Adventure Photo School.
You can either take the one-day workshop as a stand-alone course or use it as an introduction to the more advanced longer version. The latter is a mix of indoor and outdoor sessions covering a wide spread of topics from equipment through to composition and post production skills.
Finally, there's a new Three-Day Adventure Film School running from 21-23 August and taught by award-winning outdoor film-maker Paul Diffley of Hot Aches, together with local Sébastien Montaz-Rosset. The pair will help you gain valuable film-making skills, whether you're a raw novice or more experienced, with the opportunity to dabble in filming right across the range of activities in the local mountains.

By a total co-incedence I have just been to Chamonix, and it was great.
As a bonus I have been told that I pass on an offer of 10% off accomodation booked with www.chamonixallyear.com if you email relax at chamonixallyear com They also do transfers from Geneva airport, which you can get to on Easyjet so cost not so high. Beer is well priced in Chamonix as well.
