If you like walking, taking pictures and meeting other people, this event is for you! : )

This is a PHOTOGRAPHY EVENT with a theme. And for its tenth edition, the theme will be SUMMER FUN in PARIS :)

During this walk we will have the opportunity to take pictures of:
- Paris Plage (installations, activities, people tanning, reading, playing…),
- Ballroom dancing,
- bridges and buildings, the Pyramid of the Louvre, the Jardin des Tuileries
- and the funfair of the Tuileries.

PHOTO BONUS: After the funfair of the Tuileries, I will walk along the Seine, towards Pont Alexandre 3, to take pictures of the sunset. You are welcome to join me :) This is completely optional.

Do not hesitate to come alone or with your friends. Everyone interested in this event is welcome :)

The meeting point will be at 16:35 hours, but we will wait 15 minutes (maximum) for everyone before we start walking : )

Feel free to click to join the event :)

Friendly yours,
Smiling Marion

An emergency case? You can text me or call ma at this number: 


As we will be a group : we will have to cooperate in order to avoid being in each other’s way. Therefore I would like to kindly ask you to keep in mind these simple principles during the shootings:

- Be patient & respectful to the others
- Be aware of what the others are doing, trying to take pictures of… (so you don’t stand in the way or shove anyone accidentally)
- And please give each other space to think, adjust settings, take pictures… :) 

During the FREE PHOTO WALKS it is everyone’s responsibility to stay with the group (or not too far from the group). 


Please bring a bottle of WATER (to prevent dehydration) and wear GOOD SHOES.

On a sunny day: please consider wearing a CAP or HAT (to prevent a sunstroke) and also putting on some SUNCREAM (to avoid getting sunburnt).
On a rainy day: don’t forget your UMBRELLA


As the Free Photo Walks are NOT guided tours nor photography classes:

- I will not make any comments about Paris or anything else along the walk. However, any Free Photo Walker can share any knowledge he/she might have about Paris. That’s up to each of you :)

- Please do not expect to get any photography lessons and please do not talk to someone just to get advices. Of course, any Free Photo Walker can give advices to another Free Photo Walker if he/she wish to do so. That’s up to each of you on an interpersonal basis :) 


Please remember that the aims of this Free Photo Walk are WALKING, SHOOTING and MEETING NEW PEOPLE :) This will allow us all (Beginners, Intermediate, Advanced and Expert photographers) to spend a wonderful day together :)

So it’s simple : bring your camera, your cheerful mood and let’s share a common passion! :D

Sunday afternoon it is supposed to be sunny with some rain :)

I will check the weather forecast again Saturday evening at 22:00.

- If the forecast indicates “rain+sun” or “cloudy”: the Free Photo Walk will still be ON : )
- If the forecast indicates “rain” or ‘ligthning”: the Free Photo Walk will be cancelled. (Kindly note that if the event is cancelled, you will be notified by email Saturday evening.)

I hope to meet you all soon :) If it is not this time, maybe it will be next time :)

    Désolée, Marion, mais je me remets d'une entorse sévère à la cheville et j'ai un peu peur de glisser et de faire une récidive par ce temps...

    and what abt taking my tripod on board? (i mean with me)

    August 7, 2014

    • Smiling M.

      Hi Marco :) The FPW#9 ends where the FPW#10 starts, so yes you will make it ;) Of course you can bring your tripod. There will be some stops during the walks. But keep in mind that the 2 walks together will last 7 hours so I hope your tripod isn't too heavy or cumbersome for you. See you on Sunday :)
