What to expect

Live like a queen and have your cake too!

Once inside the gate we will grab our cameras and head into the Château to explore the room of the fallen Kings and Queens of France and photograph the splendour 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 Petite 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. Take advantage of the one-on-one experience of our private and personalised tour to develop your own creative vision.

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 Petite and Grand Trianons as well as Marie Antoinette's Hamlet, so there is a lot of walking! Make sure to pack your comfortable shoes. 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. Each tour is led by a professional photographer who can craft the perfect tour suited directly to your skill set. Let us know if you have a particular location you want to shoot and we will work it into the itinerary.

Each tour is private, but feel free to bring along guests, such as other photographer friends or your partner and family, but we ask you to limit the group to three people. This way we can work at your pace to make sure you take away the skills that last a lifetime.

A photographer will meet you at your hotel and you will take a private car to Versailles. The Château, Gardens and the Grand and Petite Trianon tickets as well as lunch will be included in the price. The photographer will drop you off at your hotel in Paris. Central Paris hotels or accommodation only.
