BIRDS OF CAMARGUE & CRAU
BIRDS OF CAMARGUE & CRAU
3 day bird photography workshop in Camargue and Crau where you will explore these 2 incredible regions, looking for some great encounters and photo opportunities. Camargue and Crau are some of the best birding hotspots in France.
Camargue and Crau are fantastic destinations for birdwatching and bird photography. During this exclusive wildlife photo tour, we will explore the most important spots where we can see a lot of birds in good conditions. We will of course visit the Parc Ornithologique du Pont de Gau in order to see the Greater Flamingos. We will also look for some rarities, including the Pin-tailed sandgrouse, the Calandra Lark, or the Little Bustard.
This workshop is strictly limited to 6 participants maximum. Having a small group is key. We disturb less the animals we encounter, and we can give you more of our attention to help you improve your photography. Expect to wake up early and shoot until sunset. We will immerse ourselves in nature for as long as we can!

As always during our wildlife tours, the highest ethics in wildlife photography will apply. Respecting and protecting our wild subjects is always the first priority. Animals are not called in nor baited, so no species can be guaranteed. Also, no sensitive information that could put a species in danger will be given. Any inappropriate behavior towards the animals will cause the participant to leave the workshop without any refund. Visit our page “Our ethics” for more details on the ethics we follow.
