The Provence photography tour will predominantly focus on lavender and sunflower fields over the Valensole Plateau, though the Verdon Gorge (sunset/nightscape) will also feature.
Naturally as Ollie was one, if not the first photographer in Europe to run landscape astrophotography workshops, the workshop has been carefully mapped out alongside dark sky dates, and will feature two or thre night photography shoots, and the chance to photograph the Milky Way over lavender fields, and sunflowers should the wind still enough.
Also as a formal architectural designer, and very occasional architectural photographer, Ollie has also implemented time to visit classic towns and villages such as Gordes and Cavaillon amongst others within the Provence-alpes-côte d’azur province to undertake cityscape, architectural, and general area culture photography.
Full tuition will be provided for every aspect and genre if and where required, Ollie has built up a reputation within 6 years of running workshops as totally selfless, always ensuring his photographic team are well underway with their image making before even thinking about getting his own camera out (apart from demos of course!!).
Transfer is provided, to, and from Marseille airport, though you will need to collaborate with Ollie with regards to inbound, and outbound flight times.

Gear & Equipment:
It’s always tough deciding what to bring on photography trips!
Wide angle (10-35mm focal length range) and walk around lenses such as 24-70’s, 24-120’s etc are most important, or a range of primes.
Longer focal lengths are also advantagous should you have space to carry them as the moon will be visible on certain nights,
A mix of walking shoes/boots alongside comfortable shoes will be required.
