Photo Weeks


"Five days of photographic fun"

Based on nearly two decades of roaming the streets, I've put together a fantastic five-day Paris street photography package with plenty of time left over for you to practise your skills and do your own thing.

The key elements of the Paris Photo Weeks are:

   ~ Five 4-hour photo walks, from Monday to Friday
   ~ Five completely different areas covered
   ~ Out and taking artistic photos from the word go
   ~ Different times of day and lighting conditions covered
   ~ All levels of experience are welcome
   ~ All types of camera gear is suitable
   ~ Enthusiasm and imagination are key
   ~ Regular challenges to develop your 'photographer's eye'
   ~ Small groups: from one to six participants max
   ~ 1st person: €600; 2nd/3rd person: €300; 4th/5th person: €200; 6th person: €100

"The head-and-the-heart technique"

My approach to street photography is based on a 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 of our sessions 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 situations
  • '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"

Here are some of the 'extras' I'd like to offer you to make your time in Paris a little bit more special:
  • Sunday Evening Get-together: a chance to meet each other and chat about the week ahead
  • Paris 'Bienvenue' Pack: including local information, maps, brochures and the plan for the week
  • My 'A Bientôt' Pack: a goodbye 'thank you' pack including a desk calendar, my favourite Paris posters and other goodies
  • Your Personal Videos: friendly in-depth appreciations of your favourite photographs from the week, available on You Tube

"What you see is what you get"

In booking a Paris Photo Week with me you will be getting just that: a week of Paris photography with Sab Will, passionate Paris street photographer and fanatical seeker-out of all the most fascinating quirks and curios the city has to offer, as well as its incredible multi-layered history.

When you book a Paris Photo Week week with me, you also get
  • a human being (the one you will be with!) who answers your e-mails promptly, fully and enthusiastically
  • someone dedicated to making your time in Paris as rich and rewarding as possible
  • no middle-men, agents or 3rd parties adding 15% or 30% to the price
  • a truly personalised service based on the principle that if you are happy, I will be too
"Don't have a week free? No problem!"

My Paris Photo Weeks only really take up five days of your time, for around 4 hours a day (although enthusiasm sometimes stretches this out to five hours, or more..). But if you don't have time for a full five days of Paris photography, have a look at my Paris Photo Tours.

Each tour lasts around 4 hours, is private, completely customisable, and you can mix and match more than one tour, Photo or Curios, in any combination you like. Click the link above to find out more.
