Trip overview

The trip that photography dreams are made of. Over six days you will get the opportunity to photograph sunsets and sunrises over the incredible lavender and sunflower fields in the South of France!

Covering landscape photography as well as landscape astrophotography, this course will see you capturing the best of both the day and night light over fields of lavender in bloom. Aimed at photographers from beginner level to above, enjoy learning techniques and mastery from award-winning photographer, Ollie Taylor. Throughout the course, you will learn the aspects of creating the perfect image, from equipment to lighting, setting up a shoot to post-production. In addition to general landscape, architecture, and culture shoots, you will get the opportunity to photograph a good balance of picturesque sunrises, beautiful sunsets, as well as some out-of-this-world astrophotography in the evenings. I mean, how often can you say that you got the chance to photograph the Milky Way?!

The best part of this trip is that you will get to explore the beauty of the South of France while learning to master your new skill. Expect days exploring classic locations, architecture and scenery around the Valensole area, creating the perfect backdrop for your landscape photography. Excursions will take you to the north fields and beautiful towns of Sault and Aurel, framed by sweeping fields of blooming lavender. Of course, your time here wouldn’t be complete without visiting the classic Abbaye Notre-Dame de Sénanque and the stunning town of Gordes commanding views over the Plateau of Vaucluse.

To top it all off, we provide the best program for individuals who want to learn a new skill while exploring a brand new destination. Our team take care of everything, from organising accommodation to arranging return airport transfers, as well as providing you with any aid or assistance you may require before, during, and after your trip.

You may be required to be vaccinated against Covid-19 in order to travel. This workshop can be undertaken with a high-end smartphone and tripod, however, these will need to be top-of-the-line with high ISO and manual settings to get the most out of the workshop, and achieve basic results with regard to any night photography tuition. Although a smart phone can be used, a camera and lens system that will allow graduated ND and ND filters, alongside a basic filter kit is recommended as the minimum

Trip itinerary


Once you touch down in Marseilles, a transfer will collect you and take you to your accommodation. You will have some time to settle in and get acquainted with the local area and your new friends before your workshop begins. Provence is enchanting and ready to welcome you with open arms!


Your days will look something like this… Wake up bright and early for a morning photography shoot followed by lunch in a cafe, moving to the next shoot location, undertaking a late afternoon and evening shoot and dinner in a local restaurant.  Occasionally you will enjoy some night photography which will see you learning photo editing in the early afternoon, and preparing dinner in the villa before heading out to shoot the sunset and Milky Way.

Global Work & Travel works on a first-in-best-dressed basis. Booking earlier ensures that you don’t miss out on the best intake, season, placements and more!

Why not give yourself something to look forward to by booking that trip!

Can I travel with a friend?

Yes you can! Simply tell your Trip Coordinator after booking that your friend is also going and they can link your profiles. For most of our trips we should be able to have you and your friends placed together or nearby. Meaning that you can live, work, play & travel together!

But wait there's more! Not only can you travel the world with your besties at your side, you can also earn some extra cash towards your own trip just by referring your friends to Global Work & Travel. You can learn more about the great referral rewards program inside your gWorld account once you join.

And for those who decide to go-it-solo, we’ve made it easier to meet other Global Travellers in the same region as you. Just like any other social platform, you’ll be able to interact, share, chat and meet with some really cool people who are doing trips just like you!

What happens if COVID affects my trip?

If you have to make any changes to your departure date, you’re protected with our Lifetime Deposit Guarantee and our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility. With this, we will change your trip dates for free. If this doesn’t fit around you and you can’t go on your trip anymore, we will give you a 100% refund in the form of a Trip Credit with us (See terms). If you’re unable to use it, you can also transfer that credit to someone else for them to put towards any trip too.

If you’re affected by Covid-19 while you’re overseas, you will have all the support you need from our team or partners in-country as well as have access to our 24/7 Global Emergency Line. We recommend travellers purchase Global Travel Cover travel insurance that provides Covid-19 medical protection too.

Do I need to be vaccinated to book?

As border restrictions for countries begin to ease, being fully vaccinated will maximise the number of locations you can visit. So while you are not legally required to be vaccinated, and it’s also not a requirement to travel with us, it will limit some of the countries that you can visit and may make it harder to travel through over the next 12-18 months. We highly recommend our travellers look at the current travel restrictions of their destination, speak with a medical professional or get in touch with our team for travel advice.

What happens if I want to cancel my trip?

Our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility means you can change your trip’s start date up to 84* days before departure without incurring any charges when you rebook it for any time (or even any other trip) in the next 2 years from your original start date.

In the event that you want to cancel your booking altogether, if you give us over 84* days notice you can do so with only a 50% cancellation fee. Your refund of the balance will come in the form of a Store Credit which you can put towards booking absolutely anything travel related with your Travel Concierge within the next 2 years!

*Some select trips excluded, including Teach (Spain, Italy & Czech Republic) and USA (Summer Camp, Working Holiday and Hotel Professional), and others as listed in Booking Conditions.
