Maryland Fine Art Travel Photography
Maryland Fine Art Travel Photography by Bayline Studios.
One of the most enjoyable things for us here at Bayline Studios, are travel photography assignments. We simply love travel.
We recently returned form an amazing assignment in the South of France. We were there for the International Photography Exhibition, in Arles, France. Photographers, artists, film makers from around the world descend on the town of Arles, To view traditional, modern and often very bizarre works by creators from around the world. The festival is spread out through out the city and runs from July to September.
Arles is famous for many reasons. They have some of the most well preserved Roman ruins in France. There is a huge ampetheatre which is still used today for concerts and festivals. There is also a coliseum in the center of town, which you can tour. It is about half the size of the one in Rome, but still splendid and well preserved. Arles is also famous for another reason. Vincent Van Gough lived in Arles and painted some of his most famous works there. He was also hospitalized there for over a month after cutting off his ear. The hospital where he was treated is now part of the arts foundation. The building facade looks much as it did in Vincent’s day. The interior has of course become modernized.
Our assignment began in the Port of Marseille. A beautiful city, with the Cathedral of Notre Dame perched high a top the city. We then traveled to the ancient walled city of Avignon, where we stayed in an 18th century vineyard manor house. It was incredible. From there we went to Aix en Provence which is a fantastic city, which has changed little since the 1500’s . The narrow street barely allow cars, which was just fine with us. The farmers market in the center of town was to die for. Our duties then took us to Le bo for an exhibit deep inside a limestone cave, where there was an amazing video presentation of 360 degrees of the Spanish Masters with music and lights. Well worth the $12 Euro admission.
Our new division, Robbie McLean Photography will focus primarily on Fine art for home and office, as well as commercial and product photography. Bayline Studios will continue to focus on weddings, family and portrait photography.
We are thrilled about this new expansion and being able to serve our clients more efficiently.
