how to prepare your Paris photo session

to choose the locations in Paris

Paris is a huge city with several centuries of history, but the most iconics places has been built during or after the 16th century, for example “Le Louvre”. Then the first question is to define if you want to have historical buildings or iconics or modern or both. Taking in account the frame can be as a landscape or more a portrait with a blurred background.

The river is by itself an iconic place providing a romantic atmospher. The light is specially good at different moment of the day and then, very interesting when we are close to a nice area.

For sure the most requested is the Eiffel tower, plenty of potographers advise to shoot from Trocadero early morning.

One of my favorite because it’s really Parisian and not only iconic is Montmartre. Offering plenty of creative possibilities with the street, the café, the stairs.

what is the good time during  day or night

Some places are most interesting or with great potential early morning or at twilight or at sunset or at night. It’s often related to the fact it can be crowded, we can use the people around but it can also ruined your pictures.

to define your style

Basically what is your style, your day to day style? casual every day and even to go to work or always very fashion oriented ? It’s an important question to define in which style you are comfortable. Don’t try to become the person you are not. Maybe your dream is to have a “role” in the photoshoot, that’s different and then we can build together something different.
