What to expect

Take the best shots of Versailles with this 6-hour photo session at Versailles Palace and Gardens! A one-on-one experience perfect to develop your own creative vision!

The photographer will pick you up in a private car at your hotel in Paris in the morning. Once inside the gate, grab your camera and head into the Château to explore the room of the fallen Kings and Queens of France and photograph the splendor that took down their rein. Once we get away from the Château will have time for something to eat before heading through the magnificent manicured gardens where are plenty of opportunities to photograph their beauty and make sure you understand all of your photography technique. We will round off the tour by passing into the Grand and Petit Trianon and onto Marie Antoinette's Hamlet.

Whether you are starting off, are a hobbyist, or have years of experience, our team of professional photographers will find superb photographic opportunities for all kinds of interests, from the Hall of Mirrors to Marie Antoinette's Hamlet, and all the stunning gardens in-between.

Each tour is crafted to the skills and needs of the participants. Apart from taking photos, you can also expect to learn:

  • Creative composition, using lines, repetition, camera angles
  • Training your eye: composition, subjects, lighting
  • The best way to shoot in crowds
  • Taking control of your camera: f-stop, shutter speed, ISO and focusing
  • Reviewing your photography

In the tour, we cover the interior of the Château, the Gardens of Versailles, and the Petit and Grand Trianons as well as Marie Antoinette's Hamlet, so there is a lot of walking! You won't be on your feet the entire time though, we will have a little break to make sure we grab a bite to eat along the way where we can talk about photography.
