Taking pictures on the River Erdre and the Sèvre nantaise

RUBAN VERT organizes photography outings throughout the boating season, with a limited number of persons (no more than 7 per boat) accompanied by one of our two professional photographers:

  • Erik Brin, who specializes in photographing the banks of the River Loire and the River Erdre
  • Jean-Felix Fayolle, a professional portrait photographer

Our four boat hire bases on the River Erdre and the Sèvre Nantaise are ideal to explore and photograph the rich and varied wildlife and plant life or the magnificent stately homes and châteaux along the river banks.

Early in the morning or late at night, we make sure you can capture the best light as you glide along the river in silence. A magical impression!

Of course, we only use silent, environmentally-friendly 100% electric boats. Using an electric motor means you can more easily approach the herons, cormorants, swans, seagulls, coots and many other bird species.

These outings are open to keen amateurs and professionals alike who want to discover a different perspective on the city of Nantes and on its exceptional environment. These outings can also be included as part of a seminar follow-up or team-building activity. Contact us for an outing tailored to suit your needs.

When are they organized?
