Paris in the Summertime…

I spent the last week in August in the beautiful city of Paris, where I was very busy with some interesting photographic projects!

The main purpose of the trip was to visit my friend Ian who lives there and to help him run a workshop on portrait photography. One of his specialties is engagement/celebration shoots for couples. They’re mostly visiting tourists who want a tour of Paris to see some of the most picturesque parts of the city and obviously to get some memorable photos of them along the way. Ian had a couple of shoots planned while I was there, so I was happy to tag along and help out..

Here’s one of Anna and Larry:

The workshop itself went really well, with four photographers attending, Beata and Kasia were two Polish girls from Hull, my friend Gareth came down from Dundee and then the very talented Buffy who’d flown in from the United States. We had two excellent models for the day, Kevin and Céline who were very professional and an absolute pleasure to work with.

Hopefully Ian will be running a similar workshop next year, so watch this space for news of that and a potential Parisian photographic trip I’ll be organising in the springtime too.
