Antoine Collas, a Paris photographer, shares his favourite photos of the city of light in the spring.

Originally from Aix-en-Provence he now lives in Paris and never tires of taking photos of the ever changing scenery. His favourite location is along the Seine River which he says “never looks the same”…

The carousel by the Eiffel Tower

The carousel (in French it’s called manège) by the Eiffel Tower is one of the most photographed sites in Paris. It’s the perfect location for a photo of the Grand Dame, Madame Eiffel. It’s really popular with local children, wedding couples and tourists.

Magical Montmartre

Montmartre is magical and one of the best place for photographers. Featured in “Midnight in Paris” the pretty cobbled streets, old buildings and street artists make for one of the best places to take a stroll.

Take a break at La Halte du Sacré Coeur restaurant, bar and tea room (45 Rue Custine) for authentic food. You’ll get a great service, it’s good value and popular with the locals says Antoine.

Modern architecture of Paris

Paris is ever changing. There are the ancient streets and buildings as well as new and innovative architecture like the Louis Vuitton art foundation designed by Frank Gehry. The landscape is alive….

Le Marais

Head to Le Marais neighbourhood and enjoy coffee or a hot chocolate early on a Saturday or Sunday morning before the city starts to be active. Wander the arcades of Place des Vosges, you’ll feel like a local and really understand the vibe of Paris… a big city but with the feel of a village at times.
