London and Paris are a paradise twin location for photographers. Here are some locations to visit : Heals of London is a furniture shop along Tottenham Court Road and towards the back of the store is this staircase. It must be one of the most beautiful staircases I have ever seen. I believe people often go into the store just to take pictures of this staircase. The Natural History Museum has incredible architecture, in particular in the main hall. Try using a wide angle lens to get a picture like below.
How could you miss one of the capital’s most iconic areas? Come and marvel at Nelson’s Column and the four huge lion statues. Feeding the pigeons is now discouraged (due to the spread of diseases), so please don’t bring them any treats. On the north side of Trafalgar Square, you can visit the National Gallery and just around the corner on St. Martin’s Lane is the National Portrait Gallery. Both have free permanent displays and regular special exhibitions. Trafalgar Square was designed by John Nash in the 1820s and constructed in the 1830s. It is both a tourist attraction and the main focus for political demonstrations. Look out for the George Washington Statue and the World’s Smallest Police Box, as well as the London Nose.
This famous Baroque structure was built between 1675 and 1710 by Sir Christopher Wren and is one of the most recognisable attractions in London. It is considered an architectural masterpiece and is one of Europe’s largest cathedrals. The cathedral is beautifully designed with Corinthians columns and a large dome. The dome stretches 366 feet into the sky and weighs about 66,000 tons. There are 560 steps alongside 3 galleries that lead you to the top of the dome. This church is massive and the elaborate design of the interior with its ancient architecture and paintings is like something out of a dream.
A sumptuous palace that was once the home of France’s Kings, the Louvre is the most important of Paris’ top museums. Visitors enter the museum in the courtyard of the palace at the glass pyramid (designed by Ieoh Ming Pei in 1917). The Louvre Museum possesses more than 30,000 artworks (many considered masterpieces)-from antiquities to European paintings of the 15th to 19th centuries. It is impossible to see it all in one visit, but tourists can focus on a particular gallery, such as classical sculpture, Italian Renaissance art, or 17th-century French paintings, or take a self-guided tour to see the Louvre Museum’s highlights. The most famous piece is the Mona Lisa or La Gioconda (or La Joconde in French) painted by Leonardo da Vinci in 1503-1505. Other exceptional works are the ancient Venus de Milo sculpture, the monumental Victory of Samothrace of the Hellenistic period, the immense Wedding Feast at Cana painting by Veronese (1563), and Botticelli’s frescoes. Also a must-see is Liberty Leading the People (1831) by Eugene Delacroix, depicting the Parisian uprising of July 27th to 29th, 1830 known as “Trois Glorieuses” (“Three Glorious Days”).
Photographer Victor Guidini, who lives in London, has been photographing tourists in the capital of England since 2013. In recent years he has been doing photo shoots in France. “It all started when a customer who had done an essay in London asked if I would be available to shoot in Paris. At first I thought it would be difficult to be a profitable business, but I organized all the logistics that facilitated the rehearsals. Traveling by the Eurostar trains, I get to Paris in around 2 hours, and without all the waiting and paperwork that a travel area has. After considering the risks and investments required for this journey, I embraced the opportunity, “says the photographer. See more on Fotografo em Paris e Londres. Since then, Victor has been doing photographic rehearsals in the city on a regular basis, and says there is a growing demand for his services. “Some dates are well sought out, such as during the European summer, and many people make reservations months in advance.”
