Be yourself Photo Shooting
Want to know how I created the biggest and most highly rated photo experience in Lisbon, now in Paris? It's not just the crazy amount of photos I send >>>60 edited photos MINIMUM... but it's usually more ;) Or the fact that I send the photos faster than any other photographer in Paris >>> Less than 5 days after the session (mostly less than 3 days) Well, you can book a slot and find out, but I have to warn you: this photoshoot is for the cheeky, for those who dare to be themselves. It's also great for families, couples, or even solo travelers. Forget all those complicated poses, we're here to have fun while shooting. It's not a problem if you don't know how to pose, this is actually perfect for my way of shooting. Making you feel comfortable in front of the camera is my job, and I'm pretty good at it ;) Paris is beautiful but very big, and we might not be able to cover all the main spots in 1 h's session. I strongly recommend you book a private session so I can extend the duration of the shooting and take care of the transportation to the other locations. Oh, and I LOVE CHILDREN! I have two nieces and a godson, and I have a lot of fun photographing them.

You let me know which style you want and I pick the best photo spots and assist you in your posing. No other participants. You are the main character. You will receive as many good pictures as we can get. Feel free to ask any question you might have before booking.

America's Founding Fathers in Paris
Without France, the American Revolution would not have succeeded. Without America, the French Revolution might not have happened. America & France are two nations united by a shared history, a history that is older than America itself. Our founding founders sought the help of France to create our nation, and this tour will take you to the places where these men lived & worked in Paris. Along the way we will discuss the contribution that France made in ensuring American victory against the British – and the contribution that America made in disseminating Revolutionary ideals among the French elite. We will visit the places where Franklin & Jefferson worked & relaxed, sharing ideas on democracy & freedom with French intellectuals. Franklin was greatly admired by the French as the embodiment of the very essence of Enlightenment ideals – combining frontier-style rusticity with intellectual & scientific genius. We will see where Thomas Paine lived & died. We will visit the home of John Paul Jones, whom Abigail Adams described as a "Man of Gallantry" and a favorite with the French ladies. We will visit the site where the Treaty of Paris was signed - the document that officially recognized the statues of the 13 Colonies as a separate and independent nation called America - a treaty negotiated by John Adams & John Jay. If you are a fan of American History this tour is for you!

Party like/with Parisians with a Popup Tribe -- Bar Crawl
~message us for last minute spots~ If Henry Miller were still alive, he would be taking you marauding through little back streets, but since he isn't (because:dead), you've got us, young Parisians living life to the max and hitting the streets…and the bottle (hey, all the bike rides are our detox, non?) EXCLUSIVELY on AirBnB <3 These are the bars we go to with our friends—we rampage through the un-touristy parts of town… Join a local in love with the city of light on a rampage through the bars of real Paris and maraud like old friends. Think offbeat bars, unassuming on the outside, but throbbing with anxious actresses...lecherous Laurent's...disgruntled poets sweating their regrets over a bière picon. From grandpa dive bars invaded by Gen Z sporting asymmetric haircuts, to weird—or just plain cool—spots we know to be lively hangouts—barely noticeable (or outright hidden) from the street, you would have probably kept walking—our popup party follows the vibe through alleyways and backstreets. Introverts/solo travelers welcome. Also non-drinkers. (Sober people need fun, too.) And ‘old’ people. Bring it! We romp through about 3 bars, starting out at a funky little place where we buy the first shared round of something French you perhaps haven’t before tried. Then we follow the vibe ALLERGENS NOTE: May contain traces of oversharing **
