Now that we have covered the technical part, let’s go over what to wear. The weather in Paris is can be quite different from day to day during the month of May so I would advise you to bring pretty light clothing but also warmer clothes just in case and be ready for rain too! We will be walking a lot during our photo hunting and exploration of Paris which is why comfortable shoes are important. Be ready for an adventure as you capture Paris and Monte Saint-Michel! Rubber boots will come in handy for rainy days that may occur.

I accept all level of experience in photography, but just make sure you have the gear needed; otherwise it will be no fun for you. If you are missing a lens or a ND filter don’t worry about it!
