Paris, the City of Love


Hi Everyone!

I am happy to announce that, starting from May 2024, Paris has been added as one of my usual destinations for private one-on-one photo workshops. Full details on the link below, check it out!



La Fontaine de Fleuves (Fountain of the Rivers) in Place de la Concorde, Paris, is an ornate masterpiece featuring sculptures representing the Rhône and Rhine rivers. Designed in the 1840s by the architect Jacques Ignace Hittorff, it is adorned with mythical figures and elaborate details, and it elegantly celebrates France's waterways in the grand, historic setting of the most famous square in Paris.


The Church of Saint-Eustache in Paris is a magnificent example of Gothic architecture with Renaissance influences, located in the bustling Les Halles district. It boasts a stunning façade featuring intricate carvings, flying buttresses, and large rose windows.

Inside, the church is equally impressive, with soaring vaulted ceilings and large stained glass windows. One of the most striking features of Saint-Eustache is its renowned organ, one of the largest in France, with over 8,000 pipes. The acoustics of the church are exceptional, making it a popular venue for concerts and musical performances. The organ, built in 1840s and recently restored, is famed for its rich and powerful sound, attracting renowned organists from around the world.

The church also houses significant artworks, including paintings by Rubens.



The Bibliothèque nationale de France in rue Richelieu in Paris is the historic site of the BnF, housing special collections, manuscripts, and rare books. Established in the 17th century, it features ornate reading rooms and a wonderful mix of modern and XIX century architecture, including the stunning Oval Room.

Definitely a must see location for any photographer interested in architecture, countless photo opportunities in there. Just don't forget to set the mode of the shutter to ssssssssssilent... https://www.photoworkshopsitaly.com/paris-france-photo-workshops
