The France Issue Provence by Photo Authority Magazine
Photo Authority Magazine recently published its third issue dedicated to Provence. These stunning online magazines are a resource for travellers and photography lovers. These digital format magazines filled with images and articles invite you to explore Kenya’s Maasai Mara, the Altai Region in Mongolia, or Provence in southern France. Each edition focuses on a specific place and includes travel tips on places to eat, stay, and must-see sites. However, what captures the attention are the striking images and photography pointers from the experts.
“Photo Authority Magazine is an in-depth resource for world-class travelers who love adventure.”
The France Issue: Provence
Earlier this year, the magazine’s Editor & Publisher, Nina Bataller, asked about including “Lavender in Provence – Understanding the Essentials” in The France Issue: Provence. Flattered, I did not expect to be included with such an esteemed group of travel and photography professionals.
The France Issue: Provence contains an enticing collection of articles about the region.
Feature photographer Catherine Karnow shares her photos and the backstory behind Un Automne en Pays de Fayence, a book she co-produced with Gilles Portaz. Pour over Catherine’s pictures in the Photo Authority Magazine Provence edition, and you will understand why they called their book a “Love letter to this unspoilt region.”
Hardly an armchair traveller, even Rick Steeves had his travel schedule curtailed by Covid-19. However, in “Understanding French Culture”, he speaks to the deep traditions and long history in this part of France. As a bonus, enjoy his video about this beautiful part of the country.
Award-winning Landscape Photographer Daniel Kordan holds an annual landscape photo workshop in the region. His images of the lavender fields in full bloom are so beautiful you will want to look at them on a big screen.
Other articles include great pro-tips on photography. Terry Greenberg’s “Provence as Seen Through Her Eyes and Her iPhone” demonstrates the importance of image cropping. In “The Fine Art of Presentation – The One Thing…” Nina Bataller speaks to why composition is the foundation of photography. Discover the secrets and challenges of using ultra-wide lenses by Technical Editor Ken Rockwell. And there is more “The Secret Behind Great Art,” information on photo tours, a travel checklist and why you might uncover you are addicted to nougat when you visit Provence.
Nina Bataller is funny, and adventurous and wants everyone to experience the joy of travelling to exotic places. In 1972 she already owned a Ricoh. By age 15, she worked as a photographer’s assistant when she got her first Nikon. This award-winning travel photographer has travelled the globe. Despite having her first credited photo published in the NY Times in 1998, Nina does not consider herself a professional. Perhaps this speaks volumes about the quality of all-star photography experts featured in Photo Authority Magazine. The journey to launching Photo Authority Magazine took about a decade, but this is just the beginning of what Nina sees as a curated collection of timeless travel magazines.
