Travel the world to capture the most incredible landscapes
Camargue is a region in Southern France known for its marshes and extraordinary wildlife – the graceful flamingos and the elegant white horses that are native to the area. This adrenaline-packed photo tour is a great opportunity to shoot the beauty of the white horses displaying their love for freedom and play as you learn and apply new techniques in capturing moving subjects.
Across five incredible days, we'll make use of the blazing sunrises and sunsets that Camargue is known for, as we photograph the great white horses across a variety of epic locations. From beaches to sand dunes, salt flats, grassy wetlands and lakes, we'll capture these spectacular equines at their finest.
For the duration of the tour, you'll have professional photography guides on-hand to teach you everything you need to know in order to take home awe-inspiring shots. They'll make sure that your photography skills improve as you immerse yourself in the wonders of the Camargue National Park.
Whether you are a beginner, an amateur or a seasoned professional, this photo workshop in the south of France will elevate your wildlife photography portfolio to a whole new level. Join us on an exhilarating adventure photographing the white horses and birds of Camargue. Check availability by choosing a date.
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.
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.
In the afternoon, we'll have another photography educational masterclass and critique session, before we head back into the national park for a sunset session with the stallions.
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.
We highly recommend that you get a travel and medical insurance. Your own domestic medical insurance and private health scheme will not cover you whilst you are overseas. The tour will always dependent on weather, as the weather can be highly unpredictable.
