Other things to note
No previous knowledge in photography is needed. However a Reflex camera is necessary to take this workshop, as it is about experimenting with light during night time.

I highly recommend this workshop to anyone looking for a unique photography experience while in Paris. Miguel is very knowledgeable about photography and a great instructor. I came away from the tour with some great tips, some good shots and feeling a lot more comfortable with my camera.

Miguel was very kind. There were no spots open for a photo class on the day that I wanted. Wrote Miguel and he opened up the date. So grateful for that. He also took his time to explain how to operate the DSLR and the appropriate settings for night time. I was able to take photos 10xs better after 10 minutes with his lesson. I liked the starbust, streaked light, and ghosting photos. My friend and I were hungry from touring all day on a long layover. He even stopped for a dinner break to get our bucket list Paris dishes. Great teacher and person in general, with top notch service. When I return, I would book a day photo class as well. Thank you so much!!

My friend and I are amateur photographers and took this class during a long layover in Paris. Miguel’s class was a great experience. He spent the first part of the class making sure we really understood the basics of photography as well individually showing us how to properly set our cameras manually to take beautiful night photos. We took pictures of people, landscapes, and architecture. Afterwards, Miguel even recommended some great places for us to eat while in Paris. I highly recommend anyone interested in photography taking his class as it is very informational and fun.

My 16 year old son is an avid photographer and I signed him up for this class. He loved it! He got to go on the metro to some new places, learned some great info/settings, and took some images that he was proud of and loved. We felt completely comfortable leaving him in Miguel's care, and my husband and I got to have a few hours to ourselves! He had a great time, and it was certainly a highlight for him for this trip. Thanks, Miguel!
