Paris Bastille Day
Ready to celebrate the storming of the Bastille in Paris? Come enjoy France at one of the few times of the year when the French become truly patriotic. For photographer's the celebration of fraternite, liberte, and egalite is one of the best times to be in Paris.
Learn from a passionate professional
Our photographers are both passionate and knowledgeable about photography and the area. We take you to all the good spots and let you enjoy the journey along the way. We capture as many sunrises and sunsets as weather and the small group will allow, and after shooting, we return to the hotel for a couple post-editing tutorials.
Group size & Options
Not everyone runs at the same pace, and our tours are built to accommodate everyone. We keep group sizes small, so everyone will have some one on one time with the pro. We also will offer different options for everyone. Perhaps someone wants to work on astrophotography late at night, maybe someone else really wants sunrises. We try to be as flexible as possible, so you don't feel like you have to do everything, but you can still get as most out of the experience as you want.
Tour Price $1,700/person
Join us for a single supplement for $400. A single supplement is one full day of activities meeting in the town we will be in. It does not include room or board, but does include any transport during the day after your arrival in the town. We can help arrange your transport to the town for an additional price
The first day we pick you up at one of the travel hubs in Paris and take you to the hotel, where you can drop off your luggage and relax a little. We then head out and do some of the more touristy things in Paris. We start at Trocadero and the Eiffel Tower and make our way to the Alexander III Bridge, the Louvre and some nearby gardens where we'll find some huge cherry blossoms. We will then go to Montmartre tower for sunset.
The next day we'll head over to Sacre Coeur for an early morning sunrise and enjoy a quiet morning looking out over Paris. Eventually we'll head back to the hotel to relax and to have a post-processing workshop. Later in the day we'll go tour around the Cathedral de Notre-Dame and go up in the tower.
It's French National Day! We wake up and head out to Champs Elysees to enjoy the celebrations, including going around the Arc de Triomphe. We'll rove through the town as the celebrations continue. Towards evening, we'll head back to Trocadero to stake out our photography spots for the big evening of fireworks.
We check out of our hotels, take you to your next Paris transport hub and say goodbye.
We'll walk a lot in Paris, but anywhere we can walk, we can also rent a bike or take public transport. We'll use public transport for the longer stretches, but we usually find it to be more enjoyable to walk. If you have any health conditions, or reasons to be concerned about walking, let us know, and we'll make sure to accomodate you.
