Peter’s first camera was a small AGFA Optima 500 Sensor, which laid the foundation for his later career – fast forward to today, Peter is a professional photographer and experienced photo workshop leader. On-location portraits are one of his favorite areas of photography, as he prefers to use natural light on locations like rooftops, parks or dilapidated factory buildings, instead of having an impersonal studio session. Moreover, Peter enjoys the wide variety of Berlin’s architecture and likes to take on the challenge of finding the beautiful side of seemingly boring buildings.
Peter can often be found in the neighborhood of Friedrichshain or around Potsdamer Platz where he takes photos of the ever-changing street art.
One of the things Peter emphazises on his tours is to teach you how to ‘explain’ to the camera everything about your vision, so that it then can create the appropriate photographic image, “Once you understand how a camera’s light meter works, how shutter speed, aperture, ISO, and focal length play together, there will be no (or at least less) difficulty in photographing creatively.”, he says.
Born and raised in the French capital, he is well acquainted with the city and will show you where to find the best light and the perfect angle.
Jean-Sébastien describes himself as an unstoppable world traveler, a passion that helped him to develop his curiosity for people, places and the image itself. Witnessing so many of the world’s wonders has opened his eyes to the true beauty of Paris, the city he loves to the core. As a dedicated photography instructor, Jean-Sébastien wants to share his views of the city with those just discovering it and helping them to find their own unique way to capturing it.
“I don’t intend to stop taking photos until I’m too weak to hold my camera, if that’s all you ever know about me, it’s enough to say you know me well.”
My name is Blas Muñoz and I’m photographer in Paris. After 13 years in the advertising industry, I decided to quit my job and leave everything behind in order to follow my dreams. It was worth the risk – I have made my passion my profession and now work as a professional photographer. Moving to Paris was easy as I consider it to be the most beautiful city in the world where you can take some of the most beautiful photos. I do enjoy living here and I want you to experience the same.

Being a designer and artist by trade it was easy to enter photography professionally when it all became high quality digital. I do loads of composites so mastering the light and angle is quite importent. I love Copenhagen both the new architecture and especially the old parts of the city. I continueslly explores alternate views and backyards. Also in a desperate attempt to find new snack places.
I also have a historical interest. So, this spring I’m colouring an ancient elevated map of Copenhagen from 1761. I love Photoshop! I now realize how the defence of Copenhagen crammed the city then. And why the lakes in the parks are oddly shaped.
