The Romance of Provence is waiting to be captured by you and your camera. Experience the colorful scenery and amazing light that has inspired artists, including Van Gogh and Cezanne, through the ages. Learn new techniques that will allow your photography to reflect the visual splendor as Brian introduces you to some of the best locations in the region.
The highlights of the trip will include plains of lavender fields as well as quaint villages set against the backdrop of awe inspiring countryside.
Gordes is officially one of ‘The Most Beautiful Villages in France’ and once you are here it is easy to see why. The narrow cobbled streets thread their way between houses and shops in the village which itself is built against the rock with its castle standing tall in the center.
The vibrant colors of Roussillon will take your breath away. The buildings here are painted with the many shades of reds, yellows, oranges and pinks drawn from the palette of the old ochre quarry next to the village. Enjoy the stunning contrast of the blues and greens of the sky and pine trees set against the steep red cliff.
Avignon is the great city of the popes packed with UNESCO World Heritage Sites including the Palais des Papes and the Pont St. Benezet.
Your Provence Workshop will begin in Avignon on Sunday evening and will be divided into two parts. The first 2 days will feature the villages and landscapes of the Luberon as well as Avignon and the majestic 2000 year old Pont du Gard. From there you will travel to the Valensole Plateau for rich lavender fields, more medieval villages and the amazing Gorges du Verdon – known as the Grand Canyon of Provence.
For many the visual splendor of Provence is the epitome of France and this trip is the perfect opportunity to capture this on camera. Learn how to shoot it with respected landscape photographer Brian Jannsen. Choose from either of the two workshops – June 25-29 or July 2-6.
