This was my second visit to Paris and my second tour with Better Travel Photos. This time we did a photo walk in Faubourg Saint Antoine and La Defense (night photography). I highly recommend the photo tours they offer. Nadia walked me through the hidden Paris away from the tourists. She knows the area very well, and we went through... More

My wife(a non-photographer) and I took the night tour of the Louvre and Place de la Concord with Nadia. It was fabulous. I learned how to shoot at night in manual mode with a tripod and many other techniques. Nadia pressed me to ask myself what had caught my eye and think about it before shooting. To illustrate, she sometimes... More

Each time we come to Europe I love to do a photography tour with the staff at Better Travel Photo's, usually in Paris. They provide tips to improve on my photography skills as well as increase my confidence with my camera to maximise our sessions in capturing great shots. It is also a great way to get to see a...

I met Nadia for a half day session. We had scheduled traditional Paris sites, but when we met at the Louvre we discussed other less crowded and "touristy'' options. After all anyone can find the Eiffel Tower. Nadia took the time to refresh my knowledge on the basics of my camera which I have been under-utilizing. Probably the best part... More

We started the morning at the Louvre and continued on to the Eiffel Tower, along the Seine (although it was flooded😁). Catherine gave us pointers to take amazing photos in Paris. We learned a lot and were able to utilize what we learned as we continued our holiday to London. Would definitely recommend Better Travel Photos to both novice and... More

Elena was awesome! She helped to show me new modes of composition and technique. She was knowledgable of the history, able to answer any question I had and really gave an enjoyable walking tour. If I could give her a 6 star rating, I would!

I took the 3 hour Paris Night Tour with Elena and it was all of the above. Most importantly, Elena is an excellent communicator and has the ability to quickly assess what the focus of the tour will be. In my case, not so much about the features and operation of my camera, but on the ‘art’ of photography: the... More

Great experience that I would recommend to anyone visiting Paris who has an interest in photography. Catherine was very punctual, informative and happy to tailor the class to my interests. Can't wait to frame some stunning captures of Notre Dame or the Louvre for display in my home!

I was met by Ms OHara and we toured a portion of the city by foot. In may case I have a good technical knowledge of photography and my camera but I was looking for some guidance on composition and developing a better photographic style. I couldn't have been more happy. She focused specifically on my needs and I believe... More

I travel internationally on business a great deal, and when I can, I book a private or small-group walking photo workshop in the city I'm visiting. I am a reasonably adept and knowledgeable photographer, but there is always more to learn. My half-day workshop with Elena at BTP was as good as it gets; I came back euphoric (and with... More
