Paris Portrait, Travel Photography | {Byron + Candice}

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

I love this couple.  Candice & Byron have a very full passport.  So its not a surprise, that while at one of her friends weddings this summer we made plans to shoot in Paris.  When we met up last week, we spent a few hours documenting their travel lifestyle and cruising around to some of their favorite spots in the city. France has been growing on me.  Before, France was just more of an unknown, and trailing in interest behind Italy & Greece.  But I’ve since fallen in love with Paris and the French country.  I’m not sure if it was being able to bike around the entire city and see everything at 10kph, and take it all in on a fresh crisp quiet saturday morning, or it could have been the savory sweet taste of the croissant topped with almonds and powdered sugar with a hot cup of tea to start my morning.  This november has been the warmest on record for a long time in Europe and it felt like early fall weather.  I recommend getting a chance to see and enjoy the food, sites and history of this land.  Enjoy the shoot!

I’ve been in heaven here for this week.  The workshop was amazing.  We all had a chance to relax and enjoy some beautiful weather, food, wine & family time.  I am putting together a full post, however, I had to post a few images…

Paris, France Travel Photography | A fall day in Paris…

Tuesday, December 7, 2010

A few days ago, I spend the day in Paris, France. I’ve always wanted to go there. A few weeks before my good friend Corinne was convincing me to go. But I had to be on Cologne that night! At midnight in London on the phone with my wife, she finally convinced me to go.  So right then I booked my ticket. I took the earliest train I could, the 6am high speed train from London, on the Eurostar and was on my way to Cologne later in the day. Paris was probably the city I wanted to visit most of anywhere in Europe. Upon arrival I was excited to get out and explore, but I had NO idea where to start. IF I had enough time, I would have taken a French cooking class, seen more of the sites, and had my wife with me.  Then I would have taken her out on a date night.  But this time, I spent this Saturday stag. But let’s just say it’s a scouting trip for next time!  Here is my journey for the day.

I’d love to give away a 8×12 print of your favorite photo(or one of these diptychs) as a Christmas gift.  From all the comments, I’ll select someone at random by Dec 15th!

After i had shot the Eiffel tower for a little while i saw this pile of leaves and really wanted to get a shot of a couple walkng through them. I eyed another happy couple who was simultaneously glancing back at me with my camera in my hands.  We were both hoping to have the other person help us with our photos.  I new exactly what they wanted and offered to snap a portrait of them.  After chatting, I learned they were a happy newly engaged American couple from New York.  They came out to France to vacation for 10 days.  After I took their photo, I offered to take a editorial shot of them. They were fun. We snapped a few photos, however I wish I shot more. I do live this one shot!
