Erika Gentry invites seven photography lovers to join her July 7-14 2014 in Arles, France for a workshop and tour entitled Photography in France: A Photographic Journey. This special tour is designed for intermediate photographers and photography lovers.
Photographic opportunities abound in this roman city and its surrounds as well as the opportunity to experience one of the worlds premiere photography festivals, the Recontres d’Arles, to inspire your own work. Experience guided visits of the most contemporary photography festival in the world and make your own photographs via excursions to surrounding Provencal towns exploring subjects by the likes of Van Gogh, Gaugin and Koudelka (to name a few). Get one-on-one help in the photographic field and feedback from Professor of Photography Erika Gentry and special guests. Experience food, art, culture and camaraderie on this very special guided tour designed for serious photography enthusiasts.
The Recontres d’Arles festival kicks off the evening of July 7th for an opening week of exhibits, lectures and night-time projections. The festival, with over 50 exhibitions of photography showcased at hertitage sites (12th century churches and abbeys, 18th century townhouses, 19th century industrial buildings) throughout the ancient city of Arles, France includes debates, nightly projections in the antique theatre, awards for photographers and books of the year, a voices “off” festival and book pavilion, guided tours by your Instructor and portfolio reviews by renowned reviewers should you choose to participate.
Hop on the air conditioned min-bus with six other photographers and explore Provence with your camera and the group including the famous salt flats, flamingos and sunflowers of the Camargue, the streets and ruins of hilltop town of St. Remy de Provence, the lavender fields in bloom in Gordes and more! Since you’ll be with other photographers, time of day, lighting and guidance in the photographic field will be considered and available.
The tour is designed for intermediate photographers who understand camera and software basics. We will review and critique photographs, discuss capture techniques and put together a slideshow to show peers during the final night of the workshop. While no specific post production processes will be covered – the Instructor is an expert in Photoshop and Lightroom and will be available to answer questions about these topics. Students should plan to be comfortable digitally editing work on their own with guidance.
The tour includes: (see price)
- Air/ground travel to Arles, France
- Extra meals and beverages
- Personal expenses such as photographic costs, gifts, extra meals & tips
