Photography is not just about shooting at the right time, it's also knowing the best locations. Here is a quick guide of my favorites Parisian spots. 

Classic Spots By Districts (Arrondissements)


This is where you get the most out of your photo walk, even if you don't have much time it give so many possibilities walking through le Louvre and the Seine banks, Notre-Dame and much more: the essence of Paris.


The left bank at its best...and THE Eiffel Tower: name a more iconic landmark ?

This part of Paris has everything to offer from vibrant quartier latin to beautiful jardins du Luxembourg and lots of historical buildings.


Classy side of Paris: starting at Place de la Concorde with the fantastic perspective on the Champs Elysées up to Arc de Triomphe.

Beautiful bridges, countless and awesome building corners.

Best view on the Eiffel Tower from Trocadéro.


The other heart of Paris with the wonderful Opera house and some other rising neighborhoods.







Going South, a good mix between modern and old architectures.

Most recent buildings offer some interesting architecture shots possibilities such as BNF and Beaugrenelle.

On the other hand, Pont de Bir Hakeim is one of the most famous place in Paris offering stunning views over the Eiffel Tower.


Last but not least, up North, Montmartre is a journey on its own with so many places to shoot. But the North of paris is not only Montmartre with lots of hidden gems where you couldn't even imagine you're in paris.
