Brittany Photography Workshops & Tours

Photograph the rugged coastline, lighthouses and beaches of Northwest France

Wild and Rugged northwest France

Photograph the stunning coast of Brittany

Brittany, which lies in the northwest corner of France, is absolutely packed with photographic delights. Brittany’s coastline is characterised by rugged cliffs, rocky promontories, and wild, untamed beauty. As an illustration of how tumultuous the sea is, the coastline is dotted with a variety of interesting-looking lighthouses. A little further south lies some interesting wooden fishing huts on stilts in the sea.

Dramatic coast & Lighthouses

Brittany is a region known for its picturesque landscapes, charming villages, historic sites, and coastal scenery.

This incredible piece of coastline is packed with cliffs, coves, and beautiful beaches. The Pink Granite Coast (Côte de Granit Rose) in particular is famous for its unique pink-hued rocks.

Brittany has several iconic lighthouses, such as Kermorvan, Le Petit Minou and Ponte St. Mathieu. We will also travel north to Phare de Pontusval lighthouse from here. 

Beautiful Beaches & Fishing Huts

The fishing huts, known as “cabanes de pêcheurs” in French, along the coast of Brittany are charming and distinctive structures that play a role in the region’s maritime heritage.

For photographers, these fishing huts offer compelling subjects. The contrast between the colourful huts and the backdrop of the sea or the lovely sandy beaches as the waves recede offer some striking compositions, especially during the golden hour.

Mont Saint-Michel

Mont Saint-Michel is situated about one kilometre off the coast at the mouth of the Couesnon River. It lies within the Normandy region, not far from the border with Brittany and due its proximity to Saint Malo, it is a location that we cannot miss.

It’s a small rocky island that becomes isolated from the mainland at high tide and connected by a causeway at low tide. One of the unique features of Mont Saint-Michel is its tidal phenomenon, with some of the most significant tides in Europe.

Saint Malo

Our Brittany photography workshop will end in Saint-Malo, the heart of which is the ancient walled city, known as “intra-muros.” The city’s ramparts were built in the 12th century and later extended in the 17th century. The walls offer stunning views of the sea and the surrounding landscape.

Join me on this fantastic workshop to photograph some of the finest coastal landscapes in all of France.
