  • Galloping en-masse towards you through deltas at sunset, droplets kicked up by dozens of hooves, suspended for a fraction of a second against a golden sky, the spectacle of the wild white horses of the Camargue is a stunning reminder of the raw beauty of Mother Nature & an unforgettable image waiting to be taken.
    Witness the raw power & elegance of the wild white horses of the Camargue on this wildlife photography holiday with Pui Hang of NaturesLens. Group size is strictly limited so book your place now to avoid disappointment.
    Join NaturesLens to capture images of magnificent white horses & black stallions, in France, during the White Horses of the Camargue past event. This past event is of 4 night/5 day duration on a Bed & Breakfast only, Non-Shared basis & costs £2099 per participant.
    Join NaturesLens guide, Pui Hang & 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.

    Recommended Equipment

    Recommended Camera Equipment

    This is one photography holiday where you will be travelling light when it comes to camera equipment. You won't need anything longer than a 70-200mm as you will be able to get very close to the horses. If your 70-200mm lens happens to have an aperture of f/2.8 so much the better but f/4 would also work well. Don't forget to bring a wide angle lens to capture shots of the horses as they gallop towards you through the surf.

    You should also pack a tripod to help steady your lens, especially when you are out photographing at dawn & dusk.

    Recommended Clothing

    For this photography holiday, the weather can be changeable so we would recommend that you pack layers of thin fleeces or mid shirts & jumpers since you can remove items of clothing as you start to warm up. You don't need to bring camouflage clothes but please do pack neutral coloured clothes so that you blend into the landscape. You should also bring a warm waterproof coat & waterproof trousers in case it rains, so you are covered for all eventualities.

    Silk gloves or a thin pair of thermal gloves with rubber grip on the fingers & palm will help to keep your hands warm. Silk gloves are great for wicking away moisture from your hands, leaving them dry & therefore lovely & warm. Gloves where the fingers are cut away so that you can operate your camera with them on would be a good substitute.

    Don't forget to pack sensible waterproof walking boots & a warm hat to protect your head in case it is windy.
