Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very
heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité,
sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of
Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the
site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held
before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic
Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,

I will be traveling to Paris between the dates of June 12 and June 26. I am a long-time professional photographer and have an interest in shooting as much beauty that can be found at that location as possible. My equipment includes the Canon 5DSR in the Canon 5D Mark four. I also have two other Canon cameras which I will not be bringing because of weight restrictions. The lenses I will be bringing will be a canon 12 to 24 mm zoom, a24-70mm zoom, a 70 to 200 mm zoom, a 100-400 mm zoom.... I am very versed on my equipment, very capable in my skills and knowledge of how to take photographs but what I need is someone who can expertise sling guide me to the right locations, and at the right time for the best shots. Is this something you can do and do you have a member of your team which would facilitate this type of activity. Regards. George Veazey
