Lockers in train stations in the South

I will be traveling around the South of France in a couple weeks. I am a videographer and will be carrying my camera backpack and small pack with my clothes in it. I would like to store my small pack in a locker somewhere while I visit and film the towns of Avignon, Arles, and Marseille. Do the train stations in the city center offer lockers for such a thing? Or is there any other way to store a small pack while I go out and film?

Thanks!

Try googling "left luggage" in those places. Also, sometimes there is a hotel across the street from a train station that may let you leave something for a fee. I know in Paris there are businesses that provide lockers, which we used while there on our departure day. Everything is done online in advance and you get a code. Hence my thought that maybe there is something similar in other large cities like Nice and Marseilles...

For example, a quick search finds:

Most train stations do, but not all. You can go here http://www.sncf.com/fr/gares/services and click on the specific train stations you'll be using. Then go to "services" and scroll down to "bagage". You can see if they offer "consigne" (baggage storage), as well as info about where it's located and any rules and regulations.

Keep in mind that in times of heightened security, some stations may close their baggage storage areas.
