When I started running photography tours for visitors to Paris, I didn't expect it would be so popular. It was something I did because I am passionate about photography, love travelling myself, and love my city, so I enjoyed the company and showing people how to get better photos of the City of Light. Some six years later, and we now have 36 amazing photographers working in 17 cities across Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia. We host week-long workshops in exotic destinations like Oman and Japan, and we host over 1,000 photographers each year, discovering how to get the best from their camera while being led by a local professional photographer.

My job has changed quite a lot in the last six years, from just taking tourists around Paris between other photographer gigs, to becoming the full-time head of this fantastic group of photographers that surround me. One of the great joys has been helping to promote the work and talent of our photographers.

I try not to stay behind my computer all the time, and still, get out there and shoot as often as I can. These blogs and photo essays have been the most creative and expressive way I have been able to do that, and this will be out 100th blog we are throwing onto the site. We've covered in-depth technical discussions, featured exciting hidden locations, and got to look at the work of our photographers in depth. So for our 100th blog, I wanted to take a look back at some of the most popular blogs we've written and shared them with you to celebrate this milestone.
