Capture the essence of Camargue

This Camargue Photography Workshop will allow you to photograph the beautiful and typical white horses and bulls spectacle in the Camargue region in France.  Filled with traditions and nature, the natural habitat of this region is being preserved to ensure that wildlife, and especially birdlife can thrive. Camargue is also very well known for hosting one of the largest population of flamingos in Europe, which our group will also enjoy photographing.

By joining this 2025 Camargue Horse Photography Workshop, you will be able to photograph herds of horses and bulls guided by their traditionally dressed Gardians. All of our shooting will have a different theme in order to have various and outstanding photography outcomes. I also want to ensure that our group discovers a little more than the horses in this region. We will consequently shoot in various locations and subjects including Falmingos, salt marshes and local beaches

This time of the year is perfect for stunning sunrise and sunset lights.

Itinerary

This Photography Tour in Camargue will consist of alternating sunsets and sunrises horses and bull photography sessions, ornithological park visit, local beaches and salt marshes sunset sessions. There is no physical conditions required as most of our location are reachable within a few minutes through easy walks.

Good to know about France

  • Currency: the national currency of France is the Euro. 

  • Means of payment: Paying by card in France is possible in nearly most location. Contacless payment are usually allowed up to 40€. Having an international credit card such as Revolut can be helpful to limit fees and enjoy a decent exchange rate.

  • Electricity: Norway uses the Europlug (Type C & E). An adaptor will be needed depending on which region your coming from in the world.

  • Internet: Wi-Fi will be available in our hotel, Although 4G is available in most places, we will be photographing in fairly remote locations and mobile network might be scarced at times. If travelling from Europe, France is likely to be included in your data roaming. For people outside Europe, looking for a package with your operator can be handy if you truly need internet.  In any case, the use of the smartphone during our photography sessions will be limited as I will ensure to keep you busy taking pictures.

Your Guide

FAQ

1. What weather should I expect in April/May in Camargue?​

Camargue is generally a very sunny and relatively hot region in France. Sun is generally expected, however, lately, the weather has proved to be a tricky matter with heavy rainfall during early spring. In some years  Generally, the weather should be welcoming.

2. Is horses/bulls any animal abuse?

No, there is not! It is important for me that the horses and bull we photograph are well treated. The horsemen we deal with are professionals and these are their own animals, therefore they really take care of them. Participating in these kinds of tours helps finance horse/bulls maintenance and the

traditions of this region.

4. I am a novice or enthusiast photographer, will I get some support?

Don't worry, this tour is suited for all levels. My goal as photographer is making sure that you can bring amazing pictures to show your friends/family and of course decorate your home. You will therefore get support and advices based on my experience.
