We are experienced photographers and Manon adapted the tour to find the locations we would not have found by ourselves! Although this is a tour for any level of photographer and you will receive hints and tips on how to... More

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 is my 2nd tour with BPP. I took a morning tour with Manon in the Marais district. I really appreciated how Manon 1st took the time to understand what I wanted and needed from this tour.

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.

I enjoyed a very instructive 1/2 day photo tour with Manon. She very patiently taught the fundamentals of photography as well as its more advanced aspects. It was my third photo tour in Europe within the past 2 months. Although I have been taking many pics with my SLR camera while traveling over the past 7 years I never really... More
