Camargue is a region in Southern France known for its marshes and extraordinary wildlife -- the graceful flamingos and the white horses. This 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. We will photograph, during sunrises and sunsets, these great white horses in different epic locations such as beaches, sand dunes, salt flats, grassy wetlands and lakes.

Daily itinerary

Day 1 - Camargue National Park


White Horses of Camargue | 5 Day Photo Tour in France


We'll begin the trip by meeting at the Marseille airport at 1PM. Our schedule will be tight so we can accomplish more and make the most use of our time. For this reason, we advise newcomers to book morning flights or stay in Marseille overnight. Taking KLM or AirFrance is recommended.

We'll be spending most of our time at the Parc Naturel Régional de Camargue or Camargue National Park. We'll arrive at the town of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer where the park is located and we'll get a brief orientation on shooting the horses and other important reminders to keep in mind during our tour. We'll then drive to our first shooting location where we'll spend the wonderful golden hours of the day before sunset photographing Camargue's unparalleled equine beauties.


Day 2 - 3: Show of white horses


White Horses of Camargue | 5 Day Photo Tour in France


Over days 2 and 3, we'll head out to photograph the horses again in the early morning, as the ranchers help us set up the animals for us to get dynamic shots of the horses galloping on a sandy beach or a shallow water. We'll follow this with a short critique and discussion session of the photos we've taken and then head out to the park 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.


Day 4 - Camargue National Park

We'll have two shooting sessions again this day, one in the morning and the other in the evening. We'll have the opportunity to photograph the horses as then move around with their herds, guided by the ranchers.

Another thing we'll get to do is conduct some birdwatching, as Camargue is visited by 340 species of birds, the most famous of them being the pink flamingoes. In fact, the largest colony of pink flamingoes in the Western Mediterranean is a small island near Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer which is the only such habitat for these birds in France. There will be paths and observation booths in major locations for us to utilize when taking photos of these colorful creatures.


Day 5 - Departure from Marseille airport
