We have long wanted to do a photo workshop aboard a small barge along the wondeful canals of Europe. We have selected southern Provence for our first such adventure and have flexibility so that we can plan on taking advantage of the great light at either ends of the day. Between times, we will enjoy the barge, the sights along two canals, biking and walking along the tow paths, and imaging and critiques, as always

The barge is dedicated to BCPA, so we have more input in what we can and will do. Including Arnie and Margo, the barge will accommodate 22 passengers, and the prices are based on double occupancy. The barge has its own chef on board with all meals, fine wine, beer, and freshments included in the price. Specialty wines and other personal expenses are the responsibility of the participants.

With the traditional blue hull on the outside, the interior is quite modern, light, and airy. There will be bicycles, so we can head into this or that village. People can walk or bike along the tow paths, and "spousal units" can do things on their own while we have our critiquing sessions.

This trip is all-inclusive, so there should be no hidden costs.

Included:
    • Transfer to/from Marseilles;
    • Two canals in southern Provence — Rhône à Sète and Rhône Canals;
    • All port fees;
    • Travel assistance and repatriation insurance;
    • All meals onboard — "Superb French Cuisine";
    • Unlimited complimentary onboard beverages, including beer, fine wine, spirits, mineral bottled water, soft drinks specialty coffees and tea;

The 2012 Provence explorers having fun and
taking a break from seeking their own vision.
Practical Details:
We start out with some technical information before heading out for our first afternoon of photography. Our workshops include the following:
  • Maximum 6-to-1 ratio students to instructors;
  • Primer booklet to help you get started;
  • Early-morning and late-afternoon shoots for domestic workshops;
  • Daily downloading of your images and processing (we use the latest version of Lightroom);
  • Lots of individual instruction in both the field and classroom;
  • Daily critiques, both individual and group for domestic workshops and most overseas ones;
  • Discussions on various aspects of photography, including digital workflow; and
  • Lots of fun and frivolity throughout!
One critical note:  if you are contemplating buying a new camera, please make sure you have a basic working knowledge of it BEFORE you come to one of our workshops. There are so many variations amongst camera brands, and even within each brand, far too many for us to know and thus be able to help you.

FAQs:
If you have not already done so, be sure to check our FAQs for questions you may have as well as for equipment and installed downloads you need to bring to the workshop including, if necessary, the free, 30-day, trial versions of Adobe and other imaging products.
