Day 1 - 27 Jun - Camargue National Park
On our first day in France, we'll meet at Marseille airport around 1pm. We suggest that you book a morning flight to make this meeting time, or else stay in Marseille the night prior. Our recommended airlines are KLM or AirFrance.
From the airport, we'll make our way towards the Parc Naturel Régional de Camargue or Camargue National Park, situated at the edge of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. Your guides will then discuss the finer points of photographing the horses, as well as provide more information on the days ahead.
Thereafter, you'll dive straight into your first photography session with the white horses of Camargue, capturing them bathed in golden light as the sun sets slowly over park.
Day 2 & 3 - Show of white horses
Over the next two days, we'll continue to hone our photography skills, capturing the white horses in motion. We'll begin each day with a sunrise shoot, aided by ranchers who will drive the horses, helping us to set up a myriad of captivating shots. You'll have a great chance to practice your action photography skills as the horses gallop upon sandy beaches, splashing about in the shallow water.
In the afternoons, we'll convene to look over our photos and engage in brief critique sessions, before making our way back to the national park.
Our sunsets will be forever enchanting, as we witness the stallions demonstrating their natural aptitude for gallantry, measuring their strength and courage in breathtaking displays.
Day 4 - Camargue National Park
On day four, we'll begin by photographing the white horses being guided around in herds by the ranchers.
The afternoon will be spent in a less exhilarating fashion though just as exciting, doing our best to stay unnoticed as we photograph the abundance of birdlife within the Camargue National Park. It is home to the largest colony of wild pink flamingos in the Western Mediterranean, so you'll have fabulous opportunities to photograph these flamboyant, vibrant birds in their natural habitat.

This will be our final day in France. After breakfast, we'll make our way back to Marseille airport and farewell one another as we make our way home or take an onwards journey to our next destination – pockets full of memory cards with photos to cherish from an extraordinary time photographing the white horses of Camargue.
