What You Can Expect

Photographer's Walking Tour of Paris - The Latin Quarter

View Paris through photographers' eyes on an illuminating walking tour

Book your Latin Quarter or Montmartre private tour and, armed with your digital or SLR camera, or smartphone, meet your guide in your chosen district.

Start walking and learn from your guide how to ‘spot’ and capture some of the wonderful scenes around you. Make frequent stops to shoot world-famous monuments, dip into hidden lanes and streets, and discover new ‘ways of seeing’ your surroundings.

As you stroll, learn how your enthusiasm and creativity are more important than your type of camera, and get hands-on instructions using its different settings, as well as mastering light and the art of composition.

Both tours end at a bistro for drinks or snacks (own expense) and, if you have a digital camera, to allow you to get your guide’s friendly critique on your photos.

Photography Walking Tour – Latin Quarter (3 hours)
Meet your guide in the Latin Quarter, a district on the Left Bank of the Seine near Paris' Sorbonne University that's known for its student life, bohemian vibe and buzzing bistros.

Explore the back streets to record the sights on camera, and stroll along the Seine to absorb the views of Notre Dame Cathedral. Then, take a closer look at this spectacular Gothic church and take shots of its exterior, with helpful ideas from your guide.

Lastly, head into a bistro for refreshments (own expense) and chat with your guide, gleaning their views on your shots if you've taken them digitally. Your tour then ends after your visit.

Photography Walking Tour – Montmartre (3 hours)
Meet your guide in Montmartre, the hill in northern Paris known for its art galleries, nightlife and Sacré Coeur Basilica. As you stroll, learn how to ‘see’ the buildings and streets from a photographer’s viewpoint and stop to take pictures helped by hints from your guide.

Delve into the cobbled alleyways, leafy squares and stepped hills, and gradually make your way to the Place du Tertre near the Sacré Coeur. See the outdoor art stalls of watercolorists and portrait painters in the square and finish by snapping views of the white, domed church.

End your tour at a bistro over refreshments (own expense). Chat with your guide about what you've learnt, and if you’ve used a digital camera, get their views on your photos, before saying your goodbyes.

What a wonderful introduction to our week in Paris! Richard was the perfect guide on our tour through the Montmartre area, showing us interesting places not frequented by many tourists. It was only our family on the tour, so the children received individual instruction on the manual settings of their cameras. This made a huge impact on their photos for the duration of our holiday. Well worth the money.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

Richard provided a great deal of helpful information on lighting and composition, all the while commenting on Paris history and places. We didn't know to bring information on our cameras, but understand that will be added to the info sent out prior to the event.

Richard taught me so much about my camera and photography. It was a wonderful way to wander a lovely part of Paris, seeing the street life through the lens and learning much about the area as well. Thank you Richard.

Wow what a great tour! Kevin was our guide and his knowledge and witty sense of humor made the day very special. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the beauty of Paris thru the eyes of a professional photographer.

Great tour. Learnt so much from Kevin, my photographer, and took some fantastic shots. Have been able to put into practice all that I was shown, during the rest of my stay in Paris

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2012

This was a great tour and I learned so much about my camera in such a short time! Much more fun than reading the owners manual!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2012

Kevin was a fantastic guide and teacher. This was one of the best tours we did on our trip to Europe. He bought me so much about using the camera on manual settings and I have never used automatic since. Not only did we get some great photography tuition, but we also learnt a lot about Paris and life in the area. Thanks Kevin.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2012
