Provence Lavender & White Horses
So many people across the globe fulfil their life-long dream with us to photograph the Wild White Horses of the Camargue.
You can’t beat the adrenalin rush of this noble breed splashing through the shallow waters of the marsh and lakes in their natural habitat.
We have combined this workshop with another dream of many – swathes of Lavender fields, like purple velvet, sweeping through the valleys of Provence – it’s a once-a-year experience not to be missed. Understandably, so many famous artists came to this region to paint endless canvasses of the vibrant colours with such extraordinary light.
Capture iconic, award-winning photos with Serge on home soil.
Meet at Marseille airport around 12h00 noon. You will be collected from the airport for transfer to your charming hotel in the heart of Provence. Take time to unwind & unpack.
After a welcome/briefing meeting late afternoon, we set off for a shoot in the picturesque village, followed by an early dinner and another shoot of the Village, nestled in the hillside, with the lights twinkling at sun down.
Before sunrise, we set off to photograph the Lavender fields in the pale morning light. We will capture different views of the lavender, dotted with small stone shepherd’s huts (Mazet) with the mountains as a backdrop.
In the afternoon, we return to capture the beautiful blue lavender and sunflowers – a sight and scent to behold! We end the day when the sun sets over the lavender fields.
A relaxed morning to pack and enjoy a leisurely breakfast, before checking out and departing for the Camargue late morning.
Check in to the hotel in the Camargue and take time to unwind, unpack and visit the beautiful mediaeval village. A relaxed evening to capture some typical clichés, within the old city walls. There is also a stunning view, from outside the city, you can photograph at sunset.
At dawn, we photograph the iconic Wild White Horses running through the marsh and heading straight towards your cameras. We shoot several drives with the horses running towards and across your field of view. We will also take shots of the ‘Gardians’ (Camargue Cowboys) dressed in their traditional Camargue shirts & hats, trident in hand, surrounded by the herd as well as close-up portraits of both the horses and the ‘weathered’ ranchers.
Late afternoon, we have another session with the white horses running through the marsh, until sunset. We will also capture the ‘Gardians’ at work herding the wild horses.
In the morning, we head to the beach for a shoot with a beautiful white Camargue stallion. We photograph him rearing on the top of the sand dunes and running along the golden sand of the beach, making for striking action shots and beautiful portraits.
Late afternoon, we have the final session with the horses running together through the shallow waters of the marshes. In between the action, we take portraits of the horses on their own or in small groups.
In the morning, we photograph the sparring stallions – this is a unique opportunity to see the White Horses entwined at full height, in feisty temperament with their manes flying.
Return to the hotel for breakfast and check out, before departures to Montpellier airport (flights from early afternoon).
