What Can You Expect During the Workshop?

This is how David approaches all of his photo tours:

Every tour leaves at a carefully planned time to optimize the experience. The group spends the perfect amount of time at each location to get the necessary shots. David leaves nothing to chance!


David is very down to earth! Absolutely ALL abilities are very welcome. If you want to learn more about your camera then that's what David will give you. He takes pride in getting people "up to speed" in a short amount of time.


Two of David's passions are travel and photography so he has decided to meet somewhere in the middle, between a traditional tour guide and a photographer. During the 3 hour tour, David will tell you stories about each outstanding landmark that you pass, plus the best angle to take a picture from.


In a nutshell, David's tours have been designed by him to give you the perfect photographic experience in Paris.


David promises that you will finish our tour with a new love of Paris, pictures to make family and friends jealous and new photography skills that you will use for years to come.
