Photograph London & Paris with Jason Odell
Photograph London & Paris
April 20-28, 2019
Discover the art of travel photography in two of Europe's magical cities led by professional photographer Jason P. Odell.
We'll arrive in London and spend four days photographing some of London's most iconic sights and landmarks, with an emphasis on night and twilight photography. From there, we'll take the train (first class tickets included) to Paris, the city of light. There, we'll spend the next four days and nights photographing the magical Parisian streets and landmarks by day and night.
Creative Photography by Day and Night in Two Amazing Cities
Our itinerary will remain flexible to allow us to maximize our photography time in each city. Each day, we'll have two "neighborhood" photo walks where we'll be able to photograph iconic landmarks as well as many lesser-known spots. Our daytime photo walk will emphasize creative techniques such as long exposures, monochrome, and subject isolation. You'll be free mid-day to explore the city on your own, take in a museum, or hang out in a pub or coffee shop. Our evening photo walks will again take us to popular photo spots, but we'll then set up for twilight shooting with tripods. This is where you'll be able to capture unique "blue hour" images with streaking lights from passing vehicles and explore your creativity as night approaches and the city illuminates.
Locations include but not limited to:
- Trafalgar Square by night
- Tower Bridge/The Shard/London Eye by night
- Millenium Bridge/St. Pauls Cathedral by night
- Westminster Abbey
- Buckingham Palace
- Hyde Park
- Natural History Museum
- Notre Dame by night
- Louvre by night
- Eiffel Tower by night
- Arch de Triumph
- Tuileries Garden
- Bridges along the Seine
- Montmartre/Sacré Coer
Small Group & Independent Exploration
This tour is special. It’s limited to 10 photographers (minimum 6). You'll get maximum instruction time and won't be competing with a large group to get the shots that you want. Plus, our small group size allows us to be flexible with our itinerary. You will have time to explore and photograph each city on your own in addition to the planned photo sessions.
