Photo Tours


"Let's shoot a 'quartier' together"

Based on nearly two decades of roaming the streets, I've designed a fantastic range of four-hour Paris street photography tours for you to choose from.

All my tours are private, so you can choose exactly the topic or area you are interested in, and we can customise your tour so that you get exactly what you want from our time together.

The key elements of the Paris Photo Tours are:

   ~ Four fascinating hours in the streets of Paris
   ~ Mornings, afternoons or evenings are possible
   ~ A vast range of options to choose from
   ~ Out and taking artistic photos from the word go
   ~ All levels of experience are welcome
   ~ All types of camera gear are suitable
   ~ Enthusiasm and imagination are the key to great images
   ~ Regular challenges to develop your 'photographer's eye'
   ~ The tours are private - only you and your family or friends, four people max
   ~ 1st person: €150; 2nd/3rd person: €90; 4th person: €60
"The head-and-the-heart technique"

My approach to street photography is based on a mixture of solid technical familiarity with your camera, linked to a true sensitivity for your environment and what you want to express through your images. It's by combining and practising these two aspects that your photography will truly fly!

All my tours are 100% practical, and take place on the actual streets (and in the cafés) of Paris itself. Depending on what aspects of your photography you want to develop, we can spend time on:
  • the basics of your camera
  • understanding the creative possibilities
  • composition, lighting, pattern, repetition, juxtaposition
  • spontaneity and ideal camera settings for different situation
  • 'becoming one' with your equipment!
  • incorporating people into your shots
  • discussing post-processing options and techniques
  • above all: developing your 'photographer's eye'

"The Bonuses"
