Michel Planson was our photographer and it was an absolute pleasure working with him! Easygoing, fun, professional, and of course, his photography is STUNNING! This was our first time visiting Paris, and he made it very memorable. Michel is also very responsive, the quick turnaround in getting our hi-res photos was very much appreciated as we were excited to see how they came out. Our friends and family back home were buzzing about how great the photos are, and how they felt they were right there with us! Thank you Michel! We can't wait to print and frame our photos, so we can show them off at our house!…

I try to join a photo tour in most places I visit for the first time as it is a great way to learn about a city and capture some memorable photos in a short time. I joined Michel for the night tour of Paris as well as the morning tour around Montmartre and thoroughly enjoyed both tours. Michel is a knowledgable guide with a passion for street photography, so apart from taking the "postcard" type photos, Michel encourages you to capture some of the daily life of Paris, which makes for a really fun time and provides some unique memories of Paris. I highly recommend spending some time with Michel if you visit Paris.…

Despite technical difficulties which were purely our fault and cold related, we had a great morning with David. After reading other reviews (after booking) I was a bit nervous but we found David to be really friendly and appreciated that he was able to show us parts of Paris that we had yet to see, even after many visits to this beautiful city. We look forward to the next time we can spend a morning with David as he is incredibly knowledgeable, not only about photography but also about the city.…

As a photographer I realize that visiting a new city is made much better if you have someone who knows the city, so I make contract with a local photographer. I was fortunate to find Michel Planson through Paris Photo Tours. Originally I wanted to do some night photography but it was so wet and rainy that we opted for the Covered Passages Tour. What a great experience this was. Michel not only directed us to some great locations but he also gave us some wonderful ideas where else we could photograph. He also shared some wonderful history of Paris and the places we visited. Michel also does some individual photography of tourists to capture their visit to Paris. I really recommend this service from a great photographer. It really made our trip to Paris much more enjoyable in spite of the rain.…

I did the morning and night tour both taken by David. It was a great experience. David as a local photographer knows the spots to go. His technical and artistic expertise was very very useful and he is a great teacher pushing you to explore your capabilities both in exposure and composition even for an experienced photographer like myself. The tours were a highlight of my time in Paris. I can highly recommend them.. great value!…
