Home to over 400 species of birds, the Camargue also offers a great variety of choices for photographers.

Learn from a passionate professional
Our photographers are both passionate and knowledgeable about photography and the area. We take you to all the good spots and let you enjoy the journey along the way. We capture as many sunrises and sunsets as weather and the small group will allow, and after shooting, we return to the hotel for a couple post-editing tutorials.
Group size & Options
Not everyone runs at the same pace, and our tours are built to accommodate everyone. We keep group sizes small, so everyone will have some one on one time with the pro. We also will offer different options for everyone. Perhaps someone wants to work on astrophotography late at night, maybe someone else really wants sunrises. We try to be as flexible as possible, so you don't feel like you have to do everything, but you can still get as most out of the experience as you want.

The first day is spent in the beautiful, Roman city of Arles. We meet you at the train station around noon and take you to the hotel to drop off your things. From there we head over to the Abbeye de Montmajour. A beautiful abbey built by the Carolingians on a nearby isle and St. Guilhem le Desert, one of the most beautiful villages in France After that, we return for one of the famous bull runs at the ancient Roman ampitheater in Arles. the Courses Camarguaises. And send you out to roam the streets and enjoy the evening.
The second day begins with an early trip to the Camargue National Preserve, where we capture the sunrise, and rent horses or a jeep to explore the Camargue(please specify which one you would rather do, or if you have allergies). During the day, we will definitely see the white horse of the Camargue, and hopefully we will see some of the semi-wild bulls. There are hundreds of other species of birds we will see as well, including a trip to the the Ornithology park to photograph the only native breeding ground for flamingoes in France. As it starts to heat up, we'll return to the hotel for a break and an post-editing session before heading back to the Camargue in the evening for sunset.
We check out of the hotel in Arles and take you back to the train station in Arles.
Bring bug spray! There are over 40 different species of mosquito in the Camargue and they loooove blood.
We will take a jeep or horse ride for part of the day. The rest of the exploring will be on foot through easy walking trails in the park. Please let us know if you have any health restrictions or conditions we should know about to plan the trails accordingly.
