I photograph Business Events ranging from Conferences & Seminars to Networking Events & Workshops. My Event Services can also encompass On Location Portraiture & Interior Photography.
Both Parisians and visitors of Paris desiring a Destination Wedding can benefit from my experience in photographing both Church Weddings & Registry Office / Town Hall Weddings. Additional Wedding Photography Services include Pre & Post Wedding Photo Shoots.

➤ FEEDBACK & REVIEWS
I don’t need to rely on / hide behind my “best of” slideshows; I’m confident in publishing a broad selection of images from each shoot to give prospective clients a complete idea of what to really expect - see the "RELATED ASSIGNMENTS" section of the relevant service page for specific example shoots.
Value for Money & Service
My quotes are tailored to client's specific needs and particular budgets. For the quality of photographs I submit, I’m truly unbeatable price-wise.
For Event & Lifestyle services, I quote a "minimum" number of photographs the client will receive,
e.g. "at least XX photos".
This is because if there are just a couple of shots more I know a client will appreciate, I'll put that little extra time in my side.
I’m always there to answer questions and offer advice, right up until the day of the shoot.
Asides from my professional photography experience, I also possess 8 years' experience in Graphic Design. This gives me not only an advanced knowledge of image editing, but also a full appreciation as to how enterprise clients need to receive their images, in order for them to be used easily and effectively for marketing purposes.
In addition to being a native English speaking photographer, I also speak French, German, Spanish & Portuguese, which is practical for both international private clients and for Events with international guests.
I give comprehensive quotes so as to give full transparency about both the service/s offered and the photographic submissions clients will receive. Likewise, in response to each client brief / request, I assure that both myself and the client have established the essential information pertaining to every aspect of the shoot so that the final images meet or exceed expectations.
Whilst one would think this to be obvious, you’ll find that a surprising amount of advertised photographers don't use truly professional equipment. A professional camera / lens setup provides the professional image definition that will be evident no matter the context in which clients intend to use / display their images.

ABOUT MY PHOTO SERVICE / GENERAL FAQs
Q) How do I receive my photographs?
You will receive a private Dropbox link containing your image files.
Q) What image format will I receive my photographs in?
I submit professionally edited / retouched digital photographs in high-quality / high-resolution JPEG (.jpg) format, exported for both screen viewing (2048px, 72dpi) and printing (30cm longest edge, 300dpi).
For certain photography services, my quote may also include additional edits of each image,
e.g. Paris Photo Shoot clients will receive additional black & white versions of each photograph.
Q) Do you submit prints / printed photographs?
No, I only submit digital image files. However, as stated above, you will receive a special digital export of each image that is specific for printing purposes.
Q) What are your package prices?
I don't advertise fixed prices; I give personalized quotes, tailored to the specific needs of each client. This is due to both the diversity of my photography services and the fact that I want clients to get the best out of their budgets.
Q) Who selects the images?
Typically I make image selections myself, and I strongly recommend this: firstly, I can accurately assess image quality (e.g. sharpness) and thereby what each image can become through editing; secondly, by doing the image selection myself, the quoted turnaround time (TAT) will count from the day of the shoot, meaning clients will receive the final photographs much more quickly.
Nonetheless, should clients wish to do the selection, I can gladly send previews for them to choose from.
Q) When will I receive the photos / what is your turnaround time (TAT)?
My turnaround time, even for large-scale commissions, is extremely fast; I typically I quote 7 days, though this is dependent, of course, on the size of the task and how many photos I'm to retouch. I can accept requests for quicker turnaround times, but these may be subject to an additional fee.
Q) Do you offer discounts for multiple shoots?
I certainly do - the more services clients book, the more they will get for their budget.
Q) I've a fixed budget; can you accommodate?
I openly encourage clients to communicate any specific budget they may have, so that I can aim to base my quote around it - you never know if you don't ask :)
Q) What aspect ratio (image crop) do you submit?
Unless visually undesirable, I submit each photograph in the standard 3x2 / 2x3 format, and, for certain appropriate photos, I'll submit an additional crop version (e.g. for a "close-up"). This essentially provides clients with more images at no extra cost, which is a nice bonus not all photographers will offer.
Certain photography services, like Portraits, will include several crops of each photograph as standard.
We need photographs in a specific size format. Is this possible?
Absolutely - clients simply need to communicate such needs in their brief. As with all aspects of my service, if clients have preferences or specific requirements regarding their final images, I'm always happy to oblige.
Our final images must have a branded watermark. Is this possible?
Absolutely - all I need is the appropriate material. Possessing 8-year's experience as a graphic designer, I can perform such operations / "tweaks" quickly and efficiently.
Q) Do you travel outside of Paris?
Yes, I gladly accept photography assignments outside of the Paris area.
Q) Do you travel to the client?
Absolutely - most of my work is location-based.
Q) I've other questions!

FEEDBACK & REVIEWS
"Brett was fantastic to work with for our event shoot. He totally hustled to grab all our shots, and he was a genuine pleasure to work with over the course of the evening. He will be one of my go to resources when I need a shoot in Paris"
"I recently had some promotional photos taken by Brett, and it was such a refreshing experience to work with such a portrait photographer. I hardly ever take the time to write reviews, but Brett was a real joy to work with. He was personable, easygoing, and fun, but also professional and organized. He made me feel comfortable expressing myself in the photo session, while also being able to offer valuable guidance as to what looked best from both a visual and professional perspective. He was fully versed and dexterous in the use of a wide range of studio photography equipment, and fastidious about getting every aspect of the shot just right. It's rare to work with someone who takes things so seriously, does things at such a high level, and is still so relaxed and easy to be around throughout the creative process. He also edited and sent the retouched photographs quickly. If you're looking for an English speaking studio photographer in Paris, I would recommend him without hesitation."
"I'm a singer, performer & folk musician. I was already an admirer of Brett's concert photography, and Brett in turn knew my music. He produces work of exceptional quality with an attention to detail second to none. Brett took a series of publicity / CD album photographs with which I was very, very pleased. He was also a joy to work with during the photo shoot. If you're looking for a photographer in Paris, for either professional portraits or commercial photography I can wholeheartedly recommend him."
"We are back in the US and are looking at the wonderful photographs you took of our family. They are some beautiful images capturing our vacation in Paris. It's a great refresher to have these to look back at after a month. Memories of good times in Paris (and our private photo shoot with you!) come flooding back!"
"I hired Brett to photograph a large corporate event in Paris. Brett and his team were the best production team I have worked with to date. They were very professional and produced images that could easily be used in print and digital formats. I recommend this photographer as you simply won't find anyone better to shoot your business event in Paris."
"I did a Studio Portrait session with Brett in his photo studio & it went very well. We put our ideas together. I had already seen Studio Photography examples on his professional website that I immediately liked. He's a Paris photographer that knows how to get the best out of models. I strongly recommend him."
["J'ai fait une séances photo avec lui dans son studio photo et ça s'est très bien passé. Nous avons mis en commun nos idées. J'avais vu au préalable quelques photos de son site professionnel qui m'ont immédiatement plues. C'est un photographe à Paris qui sait nous mettre en valeur, je le recommande fortement."]
"We love these photos! I've just been showing them to the rest of the band and we've already each our favourites!"
"The photographs are fantastic!!!"
["Les photos sont top !!!"]
"Our Paris wedding was a relatively small and intimate affair. Through his discretion and professionalism Brett managed to capture spontaneous moments, intimate moments and more posed pictures beautifully. In the town hall he made himself invisible whilst documenting, and when he needed to address the guests for the group portraits he did so with the best of manners. We highly recommend him as a wedding photographer in Paris."
"Thank you, Brett! I love the photos - It was a pleasure doing a photo shoot with you!"

"Brett is a talented photographer with a high sense of humor. He has had tendency for surprising people with amazing shots that you would never expect. In summary: He knows what he's doing!"
"We were so lucky to have Brett photograph our wedding. He captured the wedding day perfectly and we have some fantastic pictures to look back on. He has a natural gift for capturing moments that make lasting memories. All our guests felt really comfortable and he worked really hard all day (even against the elements). We can't recommend Brett's wedding photography services highly enough."
"Brett is the best. I know some people may just casually use the word "best", but we don't use it unless the thing we are describing is truly that and Brett certainly deserves to have that word describe his photography. We couldn't be more thrilled with our experience. Brett delivers on what he promises and we recommend Brett Walsh Photography to anyone who wants a romantic private photo shoot in Paris. Brett makes you look even better than you thought you could! He is also very patient to get you the shots you need."

A friend told me about Brett Walsh, an English speaking photographer in Paris. From the moment I contacted him I knew that I made a great choice of having him capture our time in Paris. He put us at ease in front of the camera. He was so dedicated to getting the perfect "one-of-a-kind" shots, that take us to that moment in this special city. He is personable, honest, and direct. I highly recommend his photography services!! You won't regret it!!"

You did a marvelous job, capturing the joy and love of our family. We were very glad to have worked with you on the shoot. We are extremely satisfied with the results and words can’t capture how thankful we were to have you be our photographer on those two wonderful and memorable mornings. We brought back some very memorable moments from our trip to Paris but the pictures you took ranked at the top of our trip. Thank you for being so patient with our family and being exceptionally professional with the shooting schedules that we had. We will definitely reach out to you again when we plan our next trip to Paris. Thank you so very much."

ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER
I grew up and studied in England, before commencing what has become 13 years of international experience: my now 4-year residence in Paris, follows time spent living in Germany, Brazil, Chile & Spain, proceeded by an Erasmus year in Holland, which concluded a 1st-Class Arts-Based University Degree from the University of Kent.
In addition to being a native English speaker, I have made a conscious effort to learn the language of each country in which I have lived; I therefore also speak French, German, Spanish & Portuguese.
Enhancing my sense of composition, attention to detail, and post-production skills are 8 years' agency experience as a graphic designer, a previous creative profession that also grew from my passion for visual art (notably painting).
My patience and efficiency for directing all ages are facilitated by several years' experience in teaching.
My initial interest in photography was sparked during a pre-university gap year in Peru & Mexico. Subsequent traveling gradually encouraged the documentary style which is now the basis for my work.
When I'm not behind a camera, I enjoy Paris's Art & Cultural events, sport, and independent travel.
