Daily itinerary

Day 1
White Horses of Camargue | 5 Day Photo Tour in France - day 1

Day 1 - Day 1: Camargue National Park

We'll begin the trip by meeting at the Marseille airport at 1PM. Our schedule will be tight, so that we can accomplish more during the next few days and make the most of our time in France. For this reason, we advise that newcomers book morning flights or stay in Marseille overnight. Our recommended airlines to fly into Marseille are KLM or AirFrance.

Once the group has assembled, we'll begin our journey towards the Parc Naturel Régional de Camargue, also known as the Camargue National Park. Upon arrival to the town of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer – where the park is located – we'll receive a brief orientation on shooting the horses and other important reminders to keep in mind during our tour.

Thereafter, we'll make our way to the first shooting location, where we'll spend the wonderful golden hours of the day before sunset photographing Camargue's unparalleled equine beauties.

Day 2 - Day 2: Show of White Horses

On day two, we'll head out to photograph the horses in the early morning, as the ranchers herd the animals into dynamic squadrons, galloping upon the sandy beaches or in shallow water. This amazing photo shoot will be followed by a short critique and discussion session of the photos we've taken, before we head out into the park once again.

This time, we'll be treated to a show of prowess between two stallions — for those who may express concern, this activity is perfectly safe for the participants and the animals, as these are natural interactions when these male horses compete for status and measure their abilities against each other.

We'll have two shooting sessions again this day – one in the morning and the other in the evening. There will be more opportunities to photograph the horses as they move around with their herds, guided by the ranchers.

In the afternoon, we'll spend our time birdwatching in the Camargue National Park. Of the 340 species of birds that visit this park, the most famous are the pink flamingoes. We'll follow the paths and make use of the observation booths in order to capture these colourful creatures mulling about in their colonies on a small island near Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, which is the only such habitat for these birds in France.
