About & Approach

Chamonix  – The Land of the Mont Blanc

Chamonix is a 365 days a year winter destination. Surrounded by glaciers and blessed with the most vertical mountains of the Alps it is like a big sports university with 8000 students, the actual number of it´s inhabitants. The most diverse mountain activities are everywhere. Together with neighboring Mégève and Courmayeur on the Italian Mont Blanc side it offers an endless amount of incredible alpine backdrops, amazing châlets for indoors and outdoors productions and year around wintery moods. Alpine pastures and crystal clear lakes and rivers round off a region whose main village, Chamonix also offers nice backgrounds because of it´s grown and not artificial character.

7 Mountains – Approach

When you think of video and photo productions in the mountains or the Alps, the problem you encounter is that each mountain in the Alps is the most beautiful, if it happens to be the one you are on. So where to start? Where to base a production services that guides you through the four seasons and can even make a season happen?

7 Mountains´s approach to the Alps is different from normal photo production services´ approach. During years of doing big city and Caribbean productions we felt the market´s need for outdoors and sports productions. But carried out rather by professionals than by pure producers. Se we developed the Chamonix Mont-Blanc region for this purpose together with local mountain guides, ski instructors and to some extent with local architects and photographers. We combine all the local knowledge and mountain wisdom with high standard production services quality. We secure a tight grip on locations and safety.

Team & Experience

Joel Veillon

Joel is a photographer by trade and a producer for 7 Mountains. He started his photographic journey in Chamonix some twenty years ago, by working as an assistant for a local photographer. He now lives in Nice in the Southern Alps, but he regularly ventures back to the Land of Mont Blanc to scout and produce film and photo projects. When asked about the difference between Megeve and Chamonix, he says, “Megeve is hilly and gentle and Chamonix is steep and vertical.” Followed by the anecdote of his early Chamonix years, where there was only 1 hour of direct daylight in his apartment during winter.

Camille Jourdan

Camille is a child of the Alps. Raised in Briançon on the west slope, she came to Chamonix some 15 years ago. Starting as certified ski instructor and licensed by the École de Ski Française, she then turned to rafting and paragliding, and owned a paragliding base for many years. Being the adventure woman she is, every year she takes off on an amazing expedition trip. She’s hiked across Iceland, climbed in Peru, and flown her paraglide in Madagascar and over the Atlas Mountains in Morocco.

Her organisational skills and intuitive feeling for the group’s needs make her a great asset to our team when working on professional photography productions.

Gaby Bascoulergue

Paris born Gaby used to run the best club in town: the world famous Soulfood Dancefloor. But a calling for family and sports saw him change directions and become a skateboard teacher for youth living in Chamonix. He’s a versed guitar player and stand-up musician now working in the newspaper industry in Paris, and on film productions, TV shows and photo shoots in Chamonix. It’s a wonder Gaby still finds time to ride the mountains with his Swedish wife Eva (3x Extreme Snowboard World Champion) and his two kids. Round up his impressive profile and we can honestly say he’s extremely fun to have on set. Not saying that a great sense of humour makes a great production, but it certainly doesn’t hurt either.

Martial Dumas

Martial is a pro Mountain Guide and graduate of the oldest training centre in the world, Compagnie de Guides de Chamonix, which was established in 1821. An excellent skier and extremely skilful climber, Martial has opened new routes over the Alps, Patagonia and through the Himalayas. He even once spent 17 days and nights on one vertical cliff face. Over the years Martial has undertaken numerous expeditions throughout Pakistan, Argentina, Kenya, Nepal and Greenland. Being a highly considered and balanced person, Martial keeps our teams assured when working in higher altitudes or on glaciers.
