Summer in Helsinki
6-11 July 2020

The Travel Group is organising a summer visit to Helsinki in 2020.  The plan is to provide an informal event – one with an umbrella itinerary covering this very photogenic city and its islands , surrounding locations as well as the historic centre of Tallinn in neighbouring Estonia.  Participants will make their own travel and accommodation arrangements and join together under an umbrella of events according to their interests.  They can choose to spend as many or as few days engaged in the trip as they wish, and can mix and match their choices of following the itinerary or enjoying their own self-led travel/exploration.  The aim is to provide a framework of activities that enable like-minded enthusiasts of travel photography to meet together and share photographic experiences.

Ultimate Camargue Experience
A Photographic Experience
Now that Christmas and the New Year are over thoughts turn to Travel. Why not join the Travel Group for the second Camargue Workshop - The Ultimate Camargue Festival – from the 5 -11 October 2020. We will be there for the Annual October Festival to capture the imposing Camargue Black Bulls thundering through the marshland and as they gallop through the streets of the Mediaeval walled town of Aigues-Mortes, herded by the Guardians on horses. We will also have 5 different Horse photoshoots in the marsh and on the beach as well as a Birdlife/Flamingo shooting day at a nature reserve with exclusive access before it opens to the public.
