I would like to say THANK YOU to David, who have helped me a lot to make a precious and memorable present to my daughter Liza, who had her 18-years anniversary in Paris.
It was a big surprise for her when we came early in the morning to Louvre and met David with his camera. They easily found the common language and spent together two hours making really great photos, joking, talking about everything and enjoying beauty of Paris. David’s friendly personality and charisma added a lot to that fantastic morning. The next day David invited us to his exhibition and we were fascinated with his works and the great atmosphere of art life.
My daughter found this photo session the most unforgettable and beloved birthday present she ever had.

In November 2010 me and my friend Martin went to Paris.
Without a clue what to do and see or any kind of plan.
I think without the Paris Photo Tour by Olivier we would definitely have missed the best spots and locations of this awesome city.
Olivier is a warmhearted and funny guy, who was the best guide ever!
Dont miss the chance to do this tour, its definitely a highlight of Paris!

My wife and I were visiting Paris for our third anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed our trip. But one of the major highlights was meeting Olivier and going on the walking photo tour with his group. A small band of us set out to photograph Paris from different locations. We were able to visit places that I never would have found on my own as a tourist. We crossed a few bridges, got great shots of a Parisian sunset with the Eiffel Tower in the background, then made our way over to the Louvre at night to shoot pictures in the courtyard.
Olivier was a gracious host, very kind and polite, answering all of the questions I had about the places that we were going. As a novice photographer, I had many questions about how to use my camera to capture various scenes. It was comforting to know that the others on the photo tour were also amateurs that were still learning for the most part. Here I was, the lone American tourist, walking around Paris with 4 locals who were delighted to talk with me and show me around the city! It was great.
10:00pm rolled around quickly, and 2 people in our group went home. But Olivier and the last remaining member of our photo tour took us to a restaurant in Paris that my wife and I never would have found. They helped us to order since we were helpless with French cuisine, and the food they suggested was amazing! What a great night, making new friends, taking wonderful pictures, and enjoying a fine meal.
I highly recommend taking a photo tour with Olivier.

Taking this photo tour was one of the highlights of my trip to Paris. Olivier is friendly, kind, professional and knowledgeable about Paris. We went to places where one could get the best views and photographs of places such as the Notre Dame and the Louvre.
The most interesting part of the tour was happening to be in the right place at the right time with groups of dinner flashmobbers all dressed in white! It is something I will never forget. And indeed I managed to get many great photographs of Paris, thanks to Olivier. Proof is in the viewing of the photos!
I really enjoyed the photo tour with Olivier and would certainly like to go on another one with him the next time I'm in Paris.

Mr. Ffrench is personable, friendly and conscientious to make sure his clients get good value for their time. He has an excellent knowledge of photographic technique, and enjoys teaching others.
He also has a long time knowledge of Paris, and where to find the most photogenic views, which is very helpful to a tourist wjth limited time. I give his photographic tour my highest recommendation.

We went to Paris for Christmas/New Year vacation, and our half-a-day photo tour with Olivier was one of the most memorable things we did in Paris.
The photo tour started in the afternoon on January 1st, 2011, and it was a very cold day, but Olivier's warm hospitality and comprehensive teaching in photography and history of the city of Paris accompany us till nightfall. We had a nice dinner together afterwards, where we also learned knowledge about French cuisine.
We wouldn't have gone to so many special photo-shooting spots, where we were able to fully appreciate the true beauty of Paris, without Olivier's guide. He was willing to share with us his extensive experience in taking great photos in Paris. It was a very nice photo tour by all definitions, but definitely more than just a photo tour. It was a phenomenal experience!
