We are experienced photographers and Manon adapted the tour to find the locations we would not have found by ourselves!

I scheduled a half-day shoot in Montmarte. I was assigned to meet Hermione and, right from the start, the day was fabulous. I had a new camera (from Christmas) and I had studied the user manual but really didn't "get" what any of it meant. Hermione patiently went through everything with me. She knew the camera inside and out and... More

This was my second outing with Sophie and I went for night photography this time. It was excellent - well explained and good tips on night photography. I ended up with some nice shots of the magic hour between dusk and dark. You need more patience at night and a good tripod helps but Sophie brings hers as well. Recommended.
