YOU WILL TAKE PART IN A 6-DAY EPIC PHOTO IMMERSION THAT WILL HELP YOU IMPROVE EVERY ASPECT OF YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY.

The colors, the noises and the scents of the lavender fields encapsulate the essence of Provence. In summer the landscape of this area in the South of France turns into a painting when the lavender reaches its full blooming: a strong and irresistible attraction for bees, tourists and photographers. Also the Sunflowers bloom in this period of the year and sometimes is possible to capture amazing compositions that highlight the strong chromatic contrast between these purple and yellow fields.

YOUR DAYS WILL BE FULL OF LEARNING, ADVENTURE, AHA MOMENTS AND MEANINGFUL CONNECTIONS!

Some lavender fields are so large and extensive that you can walk with the impression of being immersed in a purple and perfume sea. Flowers extend in every direction, until eye can see. A truly amazing experience! Sometimes this amazing spectacle is made even more special by hot air balloons flying over the horizon. An unusual and catchy subject for our photos! Don't forget to bring back home some dried lavender or lavender essential oil at the end of the trip: its scent will remind you of the great memories and moments you experienced in Provence.

This tour is designed not only to showcase the magnificent photography spots planned according to the best light, but also to teach you the correct camera settings and techniques, boost your creativity, master your composition, photography and post-processing skills. You will learn how to turn a simple picture into an extraordinary image using your creativity and photography expertise.
