Responsible tourism: Burgundy photography retreat in France

Environment

• We travel only short distances by minibus on this Retreat and quite a lot of the photography takes place on the Estate itself.

• When we’re in the field, we take routes that minimise disturbance to natural vegetation and wildlife. If we suspect that we have stopped near a nest to eat or photograph, we move the group on.

• All the meals are produced in-house and when possible, we use organic, local produce, source from the Estate and others in the area. Shopping in markets helps to reduce the amount of unnecessary packaging. 

• Our local déchetterie provides the opportunity to recycle most things so any waste we generate goes there. Guests are also asked to sort their own waste in preparation for recycling, which focuses attention on their footprint.

• The accommodation we use is a beautifully renovated barn adjacent to the Estate’s Château and the Estate’s owners actively manage it to benefit wildlife.

Community

We use local produce whenever available; being Burgundy, there is a great selection, including wines, beef, wild boar, a variety of cheeses and honey cake. Organic vegetables come from the market in Autun.

• We prefer to shop at markets and support local traders rather than national supermarkets and all our bread is supplied through the local dépot de pain.

• We respect local cultural sensitivities (for example, around the period of the Occupation), acknowledge that we are guests and conduct ourselves accordingly.

• We use locally-owned cafés, particularly those in out of the way locations, when working out in the field and encourage interchange between clients and patron.

• When we photograph someone, we exchange contact details and ensure that they are supplied with copies of their images, digitally.

• We encourage local naturalists to accompany us on some of our day trips; it sometimes takes foreigners showing an interest to open the eyes of local people to the treasures they live amongst.
