When I am not shooting in the studio i am often away travelling; shooting for travel guides and picture libraries. I have done talks about travel photography but now i think its time for a practical - so I'm thinking of a weekend workshop of travel photography in Paris. Who's up for it ?
We would leave at 7.22am on Saturday 15th March and arrive back in London at 9.39 pm on the Monday giving us 2 1/2 good days of shooting there. You are welcome to take earlier or later trains if that works better for you.
I lived in Paris for a few years and I know it as well as i know London. I am familiar with all the usual places and know where you should be and at what time of day to get the best result and I can also take you to the more unusual and hidden places. March is a nice month to visit too - quieter than most other times and often blessed with crisp, clear days and nights. I also have more than enough locations in mind that we can adapt and shoot whatever the weather may do. Whatever your skill level is you would be most welcome - from slr newcomer to serious amateur ! I will be there to assist or advise you as much or as little as you may want or need !
We will get up at first light and it will be dark when we pack away the tripods - and we will not be indulging in 3 hour lunches ! The days will involve a fair amount of walking and those cobbles are not for the unsure of foot - a reasonable amount of fitness is essential. But of course we can look forward to a nice meal at the end of the day !
There is not a cheap way of doing a weekend in Paris. Single rooms are scarce and there are a lot of really dreadful places to stay. The hotel i use has always been good value and is very central, in the Luxembourg/St Michel area. The cost of the hotel for 2 nights and non stop tuition would be £429. Meals and Eurostar fare would be on top. It was £89 return but does go up nearer the departure date so don't hang around.
Do email me if you need more details or want to come along and we can sort out the payment; [masked]
