These small group tours of the city offer participants an opportunity to train their photographic eye and sensitivity, with light as the running thread.

Shady little streets, contrasting monuments, a dazzling square and a timeless exhibition space are some of the highlights punctuating these introductory walks.

Participants will do simple, technical experiments with light to focus more broadly on observation, distance, framing and personal choices.

These photographic walks are primarily intended for beginners or near-beginners who want to exchange ideas and get advice from a young professional photographer.

Participants will use their own equipment, ideally a reflex or digital hybrid camera with a memory card. They can also use a high-quality smartphone. Fully charged batteries and a bottle of water are indispensable.
