A six-day Provence photography tour of the stunning landscapes as well as the surrounding area
Join me in the summer of 2023 for a photography tour of Provence with its beautiful lavender fields and pretty villages.
The photography tour will be based in two separate areas so that we can maximize the photo locations of this beautiful area of southern France. Sunday 2nd July – Wednesday 5 July 2023 is based in the Valensole area, then we move westwards to Avignon from Wednesday to Saturday.
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.
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.
A typical Provence Photo Tour itinerary in the summer
During early July the average time of sunrise is 0550am whilst sunset is around 930pm. During our photo tour, we will be out to catch the sunrise before heading back to the hotel to eat breakfast.
Ideally, we need to be at our chosen sunrise location around 0515am so be aware that an early start is needed. Of course, you are under no obligation to wake up early and can choose to stay at the accommodation until we return from the sunrise shoot.
Breakfast is going to be around 830am as by this time the light on the landscape has become harsh.
After breakfast, we’ll take a break and meet up again around 11 – 1130am when we’ll head to photograph one of the beautiful villages that form part of the area.
In the early afternoon, if time permits, we’ll have a short break before heading out for the late afternoon light heading into sunset.
