I took Nikon DSLR and my wife took Nikon Coolpix point and shoot. When little camera battery went flat unexpectedly, continued with camera phone. Elena was perfect host and showed best features of each camera. So you don't need expensive equipment to make use of the lessons. Price is about what I've seen back home per person! So this was...

My husband shoots with a digital camera and I shoot with a film (medium format) camera and we both are very comfortable with our cameras. Elena did show my husband a few "tricks" with the... More

I booked this because of the TA positive reviews. I had 8 days in Paris alone, 4 attending a conference and I am a keen amateur photographer (lately of the point and shoot variety.) I had a mini systems Lumix panasonic with me and booked a full day with Hermoine. The morning was private, and afternoon shared with one other... More

We just spend the day with Hermione and had an unbelievable experience! We enjoyed wandering around Paris with her, getting a new perspective on how to photograph this beautiful city. We learned so much about our cameras and were able to test out our new skills with her patient guidance. She is a wonderful teacher and has lots of creative... More

I recently did a two day private tour with Hermoine and I can't say enough how amazing it was. I already knew how to use my camera so I hoped to get something different out of the workshops -which I did 100 percent. Hermoine showed me a different way to view everyday life and how to basically, take better photos.... More

Both my boyfriend and I are eager photographers, but somehow lacking inspiration before taking this trip to Paris. We enlisted for a half day photo tour and wonderful Elena teached us a lot more about photography and being creative with the camera. We met in the Marais district - and Elena gave us small assignments which were both fun and... More

On my recent stay in Paris I joined the Better Paris Photos 3 day course with Sophie and Manon and what a good investment in time, energy and money, this proved to be.
