Join NaturesLens guide, & Camargue Specialist Photographer, Serge Krouglikoff, to witness the raw power & natural elegance of the stallions & horses of the Camargue. Over the course of 5 days, we will have 7 photography sessions with these stunning horses & their Gardians, the men on horseback who watch over the wild horses who have inhabited the wetlands for generations.
The sessions will take place early morning & early evening to take advantage of sunrise & sunset. Our location is situated in the Camargue itself where we have exclusive access to private land where no other tour company or public have access to. Pui Hang & Serge will be on hand to provide advice where required.
You will photograph the iconic white horses, alone & in groups, as they posture, trot & gallop through the marshes, surf & lakes, their grace & elegance reflected back through the surface of the water.
With several drives per shoot, you will have ample opportunity to capture images from a range of perspectives, including horses running towards the lens & across your field of view.
2 separate sessions with a single stallion (one white & one black) on the beach takes place in the afternoon, allowing for dramatic action shots as the beautiful animal gallops through the surf and along the shoreline.
Capture images of magnificent stallions intertwined at full height, showcasing their feisty, fiery temperament.
Our trip also includes a unique opportunity to add something rather special & unusual to your portfolio. An afternoon session of portrait photography of both the white stallion & a black stallion, against a clean, moody backdrop, using both lighting & natural daylight, making for dramatic close-up shots.
There will be time in between the horse photography sessions to explore the walled city which will be our base for the duration of this holiday & capture images of the vibrant pink waters of the salt marshes.
Accommodation is a 3-star hotel on a bed & breakfast basis. In trip transportation is also included in the cost. International flights, lunch, dinner, drinks & items of a personal nature are excluded.
