ABOUT US

Our Story

Boasting millions of visitors each year, Carcassonne is one of the most photographed places in Europe. Most people venture to the world-famous Citadel, historic site of activity for millennia. But Carcassonne is a city of two halves, with the stunning New Town offering countless opportunities for exploration. It is in the New Town (the Ville Basse) that our photography tours take place. Carcassonne Photography Tours, which started in 2018, offers an opportunity both to explore the beautiful city, as well as to explore, and put unto practice, the fundamentals of photography. It was created by Laurence Patterson, for years an enthusiastic photographer based in the United Kingdom, who latterly moved to France, learned the theory behind the practice, and now works as a professional photographer and designer.
