Paris Street Style Experience: 4 Days – 4 Models

Explore Paris with a camera in a group of photographers - and a model always happens to be there!

What makes Paris special? 

Certainly worth seeing: Eiffel Tower, the Latin Quarter, Sacré-Cœur, Montmartre, Louvre, Pont Neuf, Pont des Arts, Arc de Triomphe, ...

But we take pictures away from the hotspots and still try to create pictures that show the typical flair of Paris.

Street style and street portraits

Our models are our travel companions, whom we can take with us whenever we want.

We can take her as the main subject in the style of street style and street portrait and Paris becomes a decorative but certainly appropriate backdrop, sometimes she walks through the picture as if by chance and sometimes she is just a companion on our discovery tour.

The course of our photo trip in Paris

We discover a different neighborhood every day, first without a model, we become our own location scouts and then know the area later when the model comes along. 

Day 1: Arrival

  • ICE from Frankfurt via Mannheim, Karlsruhe, Strasbourg, arrival at 10:38 am at Paris Est station.
  • Breakfast in the cafe
  • check-in in the hotel
  • after that we meet with the first model for the first excursion

The light

always good to know: sunrise will be at 7:00 a.m. and sunset at 7:00 p.m

I'm happy to suggest locations for the golden and blue hour, but we only decide on the spot. If you like, you can get up early and capture magical light moods in Paris, which is still sleepy, before breakfast.

The days

after breakfast we take it easy, we stroll and discover. A different neighborhood every day.

From the boulevards to the small squares and alleys, the backyards and hidden corners, cafes and restaurants, we will see: Paris has many charming faces!

We will discover the locations where we work with the models together in advance and have opportunities for classic street photography. Then when we meet the model, we can focus on her and already feel at home in the area.

This experience - and it's not called that for nothing - is also about experiencing. We stop, rest and enjoy culinary Paris.

The nights

After the golden hour comes the blue hour, even if the sky is gray, this is more the time for atmospheric city scapes - cityscapes that inspire with their interplay of dark blue evening sky and the lights of the city.

When the sky goes black, it's more about the details and the games with the light of the night. We play with as long as our condition lasts.
Alternatively, we just go to a nice restaurant, bistro or bar and end the day.

Last day: departure

  • The official part ends at 4 p.m
  • Last TGV or ICE from Paris Est to Mannheim, Karlsruhe or Frankfurt, departure between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. depending on the destination
    Those who prefer to fly or drive should also be able to come home. 

Attendees

Go on a discovery tour together, develop your skills photographically and have fun doing it.

Having enough time for good picture compositions and being in the right place at the right time.

It's all about this! How long and intensively you deal with photography is not important.

The Paris Experience does not require any special physical condition, but unfortunately it is not suitable for people with mobility impairments.

subjects

  • street photography
    The classic: people, architecture, patterns, light, reflections, movement, situations
  • handling light
    For example, images photographed against the light are often thrown away. Or real highlights!
    No matter how the weather is there, we will have exciting light situations or look for and find them
  • image composition
    Recognizing and consciously staging reflections, movement, colours, lines and shapes
  • portrait
    As I said: Vera is there
  • street style
    it's a bit like staged street photography. Let's be honest: we've probably all seen a motif but haven't had the time to wait for the right person to complete the motif. Although we photograph Vera, we consciously include the city in the composition
  • Architecture, long exposure and blue hour
    Capture the evening mood and abstract bit of motion blur in a targeted manner
    A mini tripod or smaller Gorillapod with L-bracket or something similar. Tripods that dangle outside of the backpack all day are more of a burden

models

Like last year, we will parade through a different district every day with a different model.

On the second day we will be joined by Ira Berdnyk, who will stand for City Nudes Models: aesthetic nude and boudoir shots in the city. The pictures here were taken from a workshop in Düsseldorf last year, Ira had a lot of fun and she's happy to come to Paris with me.

Analog photography

As in all my workshops, analog cameras are welcome. I'm also happy to borrow a camera and bring films if a participant is interested. Then please let us know in advance.
