Let pro-photographer (and Paris-lover!) Bob Friday help you experience/see/love & photograph Paris in a whole new light!

PHOTOVISION: Paris! is offered as either a 5-weekday course or 2-day weekend workshop for beginners and experienced photographers alike. Explore the iconic and the off-the-beaten-path sides of the City of Light with Bob as he guides you with fresh ways to see and capture its charm and character.

This workshop is a small, intimate group of 10 participants— engagingly interactive, tons of fun and full of practical guidance that will help you capture heartfelt, meaningful, visually & emotionally appealing images.(Also available in personalized one-on-one classes.)

Our main focus? How to shoot fresh & new in an iconic "it's been done" city:

  • Avoid the "postcard" shots
  • Creatively frame your shot
  • High, low, upside down: new perspectives
  • Foreground & background
  • Lines, angles, patterns
  • Finding the un-obvious!
  • Humor and irony: It's everywhere!
  • Ordinary life on these amazing streets
  • The little things of Paris that make you go "Ahhhh!"
  • Life reflected
  • The Big Picture
  • DON'T smile for the camera!
  • Twilight magic
  • Rainy day beauty

In the 5-day workshops we'll meet for breakfast and an engaging presentation/direction/discussion prior to heading out for the day. We'll also have a luncheon at a photogenic Parisian bistro (Rev up your black & white settings!) and a final dinner with reviews, critiques, exchanges and sharing of our photographic experiences from our time out in the streets of Paris!
