Short Description

Join us for Paris, City of Light, that is without a doubt our favorite city. Margo’s English Granny and dad lived there, and Margo first spent time there in the early 60s, with Arnie following a few years later. We base our workshops on the Left Bank/Rive Gauche near Jardin du Luxembourg where we visit several times. The Seine is a short walk down the hill, and The Louvre and Notre Dame are a few steps more. Giverny, where Monet did so many paintings is a couple of hours away. Cafés abound, and we get to watch and photograph the gardens, architecture, people and sites of this grand city. We also take in some photographic exhibits to give our participants a sense of other artists. Margo, by the way, speaks fluent French. Here, you’ll get to seek your own vision while having a ton of fun …

Our tag line is "Seek Your Own Vision, and Make Great Photos," and we mean it. Standing cheek by jowel with a gaggle of photographers is not the way to get unique images. Our goal is to help you find your vision and use age-old principles of art to make compelling images that tell your story. We stress aesthetics over techno-speak, and our daily critiques incorporate just that.


Margo and Arnie are world travelers who in their past lives, worked for the best of the best, LIFE, Time, GEO, Geographic, etc. and were hired by Fortune 500 corporations for their unique vision. Their work is in museums and collections world-wide. Let them help you take that next step in your photographic journey.
