Would you like to make your photos of Paris and anywhere you travel look even just a little bit more like these? Who wouldn’t?? Georgianna Lane, published author and photographer extraordinaire and I would like to invite you to our exclusive Paris trip, “Paris from a Woman’s Point of View”. On this trip you’ll learn photography skills from a real pro. Things like composition, editing, basic cropping and lighting. You’ll jump several levels from wherever you start, whether that’s as a complete beginner, a casual “I take pictures on vacation” kind of person or a budding Man Ray. Bring your iPhone or your digital camera and lets perfect our skills and bring back some beautiful memories together. However, lest you think this trip is just for photographers think
again. Also on this trip you’ll learn about important French Women who’ve made their mark on Paris from a Parisienne lawyer and historian who specializes in Women’s history. This adorable beret-clad lady will let us in on some humorous little known stories about the important women of Paris plus she’ll share with us some scandalous, jaw-dropping tales you’ve probably not read in your history books. This ain’t your grandma’s history lesson!
During our week we’ll hit the flea markets, listen to gypsy jazz, learn how to tie a French bouquet, visit some of the cities most important florists, learn some traditional French Chanson, eat some of the best food Paris has to offer, see some Parisian gardens in the height of their late summer bloom, go on a cocktail crawl with yours truly and explore lesser known areas like the Canal St. Martin.
Everyone will walk away with a portrait by the talented Miss Lane which we’ll be shooting right outside my flat on the Ile St. Louis, a place you’ll be invited to on our last night for a private meal prepared by our very own French chef. Don’t wait – this trip will sell out fast! Its time to get yourself to Paris, learn something and bring home a renewed and reinvigorated sense of yourself – something that is always a part of our gals-only trips of France. These trips are for people who wouldn’t normally be caught dead on a traditional trip. We come together as women from all over the world and leave as friends. This connection is the secret sauce and the reason why I created Girls’ Guide to Paris. Come see for yourself. Paris from a Women’s Point of View with Doni Belau and Georgianna Lane, September 2019.
Everyone who joins the trip will get a complimentary signed copy of GL’s Paris in Bloom as well as my Paris Cocktails book.
