PARIS Weekend Workshop January 17-19, 2020


Cost of the workshop is $675.

Join me for two and half days of street photography in the city where it all began.

The weekend workshop includes:

The weekend will start late afternoon on Friday with a Keynote presentation followed by a welcome dinner at my favorite bistro in the 5th District near Le Pantheon and the Luxembourg Gardens. We will spend all day Saturday shooting. Sunday will start with a photo walk and end in the classroom with some post processing and a group critique session.

Everything you learn over the weekend will be easy to apply on any photo walk back home or during your travels. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced photographer, Valérie will help you capture the types of photographs you are aiming for. You will leave the workshop with a renewed vision and confidence as well as new friends who share the same passion for street photography.

Add To Cart


I encourage participants to shoot with gear that they are very familiar with. Comfort is also important as we will be walking for a few hours. It is strongly encouraged to bring a laptop computer or a tablet for the Sunday afternoon critique session (you do not need your computer on Saturday morning, just something to take notes with if you are so inclined, whatever you bring with you on Saturday morning will have to stay with you during the photo walk.) You can use the processing software you are most familiar with. Please note that I will not be teaching how to use a processing software during this workshop and you need to know how to use the software of your choice ahead of time.
