What you'll do

Get the best Instagram shots, create the most amazing videos, find and capture the hidden secrets. Now includes BULLET TIME capture.

Instagrammers - we're going to explore the Ville Basse area of Carcassonne, through your camera or smartphone lens! We'll kick things off by talking about the principles of great photography, but without any of the unnecessary jargon that comes with it, and we'll look at what we think makes a perfect photo for Instagram.

Our tour will work from the Train Station and through to the Port of the Canal du Midi, and along to the Pont Marengo, pausing at various points to reflect on a new aspect of photography for Instagram, and then jumping behind the lens to try them out. We'll walk along the cobbled streets and lanes of Carcassonne, finding spots to learn about black and white photography, landscape, portrait and action shots.

The two-hour tour will move to the more popular areas around Place Carnot, before turning to the famous Pont Vieux for a final view and summary. Our online community is accessible to all those taking part, and details of this will be offered to participants, at the end. We're Instagram friendly! Our tour is for photography beginners, for those with a real passion for taking snaps, and for those that know a thing or two about cameras. All welcome!

Where you'll be

For the best Instagram opportunities, we'll visit Carcassonne's beautiful Train Station , and move along, across the cobbles, to a point on the Canal du Midi, and then into the Square Chenier. From there we will work towards the centre of the New Town, the very popular Place Carnot, before descending across to the River Aude, which its perfect view of the Citadel, quieter parts, and complete our tour at the Pont Vieux - the old bridge.

What a fantastic way to see some sites in the city. Understand, this is not a tourists view, but lessons on better photography while seeing some places and views that would not be shown in tours.

Laurence did a great job sharing his favorite areas within Bastide de Saint Louis and giving insight into what makes a good image. He does a nice job of bringing these different elements into an easy-to-understand format while showing examples as you progress in the tour. Laurence is friendly and engaging and made this experience fun. I definitely recommend touring with him and discovering fun subjects to photograph and unique angles to photograph from so you can share your vacation on Instagram or elsewhere.
