PROVENCE PHOTO TOUR
On this 8 day Provence photo tour you will be shooting amongst the massive mountains and rivers and lakes then making our way through quaint villages perched on hilltops surrounded by purple lavender fields and then down to the Mediterranean Sea with your tutor David Still.
Provence has managed to escape the ravages of time and is an alluring place. Landscapes are the dominant feature of Provence. Nowhere else in France could you find a land of greater diversity than here. At this time of the year we should have the relaxing fragrance of French Lavender in the fields that give us beautiful photos of varying purple hues.
We will all meet in Geneva then head south visiting a village on a canal that is full of French character before arriving in Laffery for the night where we will shoot a sunset shot of a peaceful lake with huge mountains as our back drop.
We will rise early to capture the sun rising of a deserted lake then make our way through the Montagne De Lure and the Pre Alps De Digne heading further south stopping for a cappuccino in a hilltop village then travelling to Moustiers Saint Marie to photograph its amazing stone archway to its village where we can shot scenes reflecting the French lifestyle.
Today we will travel east towards the fenland of The Camargue region where we will experience the wetlands and the native white horses and birds. Travelling around this area making our way back to Gordes for the night we capture more French countryside vistas reminiscent of Cezanne and Van Goghs masterpieces.
This morning will be an early start capturing a village that is still asleep. After a French cafe breakfast we will travel east through rocky plateaus and fields hopefully bursting with lavender bushes and the noise of cicadas, and shoot rustic farm buildings on the fertile plains of the Rhone before arriving in Marseille overlooking the Mediterranean Ocean.
Although Marseille is a bustling city for us to experience we will spend the day in quiet fishing villages with upturned boats and further around the coast capturing the rugged coastline with the sea lashed rocky shoreline. After shooting a village that is totally surrounded by a huge stone wall we arrive in the beautiful coastal town of St Raphael.
Being on the French Riviera we will take advantage of the location shooting an island just off the coast in the Mediterranean Ocean before heading east to Cannes and then a short drive to Nice for our final farewells.
Depending on numbers partners and family are welcome to come and enjoy the sights and atmosphere of Provence while the photo tour group are out shooting, then rendezvous back at the hotel at night. Guided sightseeing tour of Provence or specific themes such as a gastro tour arranged for partners if required.
