What You Can Expect

Small-Group Paris Photography Tour: Archives Nationales Gardens and Le Marais District

Les Archives Nationales: The Focus of Your Photography Tour

With your digital camera in hand, meet your guide in the heart of the Marais district, outside Archives Nationales – a complex comprising two stunning Rococo-style mansions where the French National archives are held. Before jumping straight into the photography, your guide, a professional photographer, will discuss your camera with you, showing you how to get the best of its different settings and using the manual mode.

Then, explore the three gardens around the archives, discovering the secrets to creative city photography. An oasis of tranquility away from the hustle and bustle of Marais, the gardens provide the perfect setting for creative camerawork, with sprawling flowerbeds and romantic alleyways set against the backdrop of mansion houses. Use an exclusive and hands-on learning method called BLAAST© and discover how to analyze objects for perfect composition. Get tips to experiment with different exposures, and use framing techniques to unlock your creative potential.

Continue your tour through the Marais, passing the fashionistas who typify the arty bustle of this neighborhood. Wander to the Jewish Pletzl in Paris’ 4th arrondissement and line up snaps of quirky kosher delis sat side by side with swanky boutiques. Work your way past the elegant buildings of the Beauborg District, before finishing your tour with more hands-on practice back at the Archives Nationales, a short stroll away.
