Run by Don and Trisha McCrae, Studio Lavalette,
which is based in SW France, offers fun, but serious, learning

pool and a purpose-built, state-of-the-art photo and media studio.

5-day residential course is normally priced at £999, but for the course
starting in the evening of Monday 8 July and ending in the afternoon of
Saturday 13 July, Amateur Photographer readers can get a sunny 50%
discount and only pay £499* – just email with
“AP Reader Offer” as the Subject header. Places are limited to 6

partners can relax by the pool in luxury surroundings and enjoy high
quality home-cooked local food and wine each evening for a further 50%
discount i.e. £249. Additional activities, such as beauty treatments,
classes in cookery, wood-turning or basket weaving, can also be arranged
at a additional charge.

Our aim is for people to leave here
inspired and motivated by what they have learned, but also to have had a
relaxing and fun holiday experience, in great accommodation with
wonderful food,” said Don, who has been a photographer for over 12
years, and holds both the Associateship and Licentiate distinctions
awarded by the Royal Photographic Society.
