Provence Photography Tours & workshops

Beautiful lavender fields and villages

A 6-day Provence photography tour of the stunning landscapes as well as the surrounding area

Join me in the summer for a photography tour and workshop in Provence with its beautiful lavender fields and pretty villages. The tour will be based in two separate areas so that we can maximize the photo locations of this beautiful area of southern France. We start in the Valensole area, then we move westwards to Avignon.

Lavender fields

During the summer months in early July, the lavender starts to come into full bloom and this is especially so on the Plateau de Valensole where we will begin the photography tour. These fields are filled with lone trees and farm buildings which make the perfect backdrop for our photography.

Picturesque villages

But it’s not all endless fields of lavender, if we’re lucky the sunflowers will be in bloom too providing a sea of yellow. In addition, our photo tour will also include some of the surrounding villages as well as a trip to Avignon.

We will spend in the beautiful villages too so you’ll have a chance to capture the architecture of the south of France as well as still life scenes and lifestyle images.
