Camargue Horses ~ 2018 Workshop Announced!

Camargue & Provence France Photo Tour /A Creative Adventure
July 8th – July 15th, 2018
/ 7 Nights, $5995 (Limit: 10 photographers-minimum of 6)

The centerpiece of this workshop will be six sessions photographing the beautiful Camargue horses mostly running in the water or on the beach. There is a wonderful natural bird park in Camargue where we will photograph flamingos and other birds for one evening in usually gorgeous light. The flamingos fly in to feed each evening and we should have opportunities to capture images of them in flight.

After our first four magical days we will visit several different and interesting locations and sites during the trip and will spend part of a day at the market in Arles. An evening shoot in Avignon to photograph the bridge and the magical blue sky should be exciting! In addition, the lavender fields should be at peak bloom during our stay. This is a wonderful opportunity to combine travel photography with stallions, birds, flowers, and lots more.

    Denise,
    I am interested in giving myself this workshop as a retirement gift but I have some concerns. Not the least of which is the fact that I speak not one word of French. Also, I am not so proficient at photographing horses….problems?

    Carole

    Hi Carole,

    No need to speak French our professional guide is fluent in both French and English. As far as the experience with horse photography , no worries, I will give ample instruction so that you will be able to not only get the shots but learn how in the process. As long as you have working knowledge of your camera and can change your settings such as ISO, aperture and shutter speed you will be fine.

    Take care and I am looking forward to having you on the trip.
    Denise
