Arc de Triomphe, the Gate of Victory, and the most beautiful avenue in the world : Champs Élysées, no further introduction is necessary, there’s even a song for them. So many tourist come and take pictures around this 12 ways roundabout, but in reality it is not as simple as clicking the button : from where, when and from which angle make all the difference.
Then walking along the Champs Élysées gives window-shopping a different meaning altogether. I suggest to avoid the tourist area, there are more chic shops and street corners to frame. You can also get the best macaroons in Paris on the way, and why not re-enacting the “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” scene.
We’ll start from the meeting point : Arc-de-Triomphe is a wide open space, it’s easy to miss meeting each other, so it is important to get to the right meeting point that I’ve particularly chosen to avoid that.
Then, after taking some shoots with Arc de Triomphe, we’ll walk along the Champs Élysées until either GeorgeV or Champs Élysées metro stations.
Meet me at Arc de triomphe, Metro Charles de Gaulle – Étoile, Exit No. 2 Avenue Friedland.
Arc de Triomphe is an open wide space and can be very crowded in some areas.
I pick this easily identifiable spot for you so we don’t miss the rendez-vous.
Pick a date!
Which photo-session is really up to you.
To take nice pictures takes time, to enjoy the walk, and appreciate the surroundings. And it is your holiday in Paris. You’ve come all the way here, so might as well enjoy the photo session and the scenery.
And moreover, a photographer always take you to the best spots.
So here are some suggestions from previous sessions around this place :
- Arc de triomphe + Champs Élysées : 1 hour
- Arc de Triomphe + Champs Élysées + cafe shoot : 90 min
