Legendary photographer, night-shooting guru, and flower photographer extraordinaire Harold Davis, and Mark Brokering, our own Director of Social Awesomeness and expert-on-all-things-Parisian, will guide a small group of participants to get those amazing, out-of-the way shots that are hard to find on your own.
