Join us for a day of photography in a very special place. St Malo is the walled city of Brittany and is both breathtaking and awe inspiring. Famous for its beautiful architecture and the substantial ramparts that surround and guard the city - you won't be stuck for things to photograph! Not many places can claim so much history in such a small area. St Malo has huge cultural significance going back almost a thousand years and including World War Two when the city was bombed. Now totally rebuilt to original 18th century style, St Malo never fails to impress.
Nestled in the Baie du Saint Michel (think of Mont Saint-Michel), the surroundings are spectacular. The offshore islets and forts make for some dynamic shots when surrounded by the sea and some of them are walkable when the tide is down. With sandy beaches, harbours and maybe some special yachts in residence, St Malo will have you shooting anything from beautiful landscapes to architecture, cathedrals, street performers, a unique sea bathing pool and typical Breton life.
When the mass of shooting options proves overwhelming you'll then be spoilt for choice when it comes to dining. With so many bistros and cafes to choose from you can either watch the world go by as you dine or capture it all on your camera. St Malo is an easy place to navigate around and the Breton people are welcoming and helpful. We know St Malo inside and out and we'll take you to places that will provide you with images you will treasure for life. As with all our photo tours, we've researched our locations thoroughly and we'll fast track you to the best vantage points. Having said that, this St Malo tour is a one-day walking photography workshop/tour.
Time spent out photographing St Malo can be devoted to perfecting a variety of photography skills, perhaps working on getting the best compositions, learning creative camera techniques and using available light. No two workshops are ever the same and the day's itinerary is flexible to ensure that each person gets the most from the workshop. Our wish is that you leave with some stunning images and a new understanding of your camera equipment with a streamlined workflow that you can use again and again.
This one-day photo tour of St Malo can be added onto a Jersey Photography Tour, subject to dates and availability of ferry crossings. It can be booked as a stand alone day for three to six people. Please email us if you are interested.
