The Most Perfect Job Ever?

My friend and fellow expat Lindsey Kent has the perfect job: one that takes advantage of her talent, her passion and her temperament, is completely unique, and is perfectly suited to her adopted city. As the founder of Pictours Paris, Lindsey goes around town with visitors and takes photos of them on their Paris travels, capturing moments in front of some of the city’s most beautiful monuments as well as its hidden nooks and crannies. Photographing lovers and newlyweds as well as families and groups of girlfriends, Lindsey has seen it all in the City of Light.

Lindsey and her chef husband, Justin, moved to Paris shortly after their 2011 wedding and, like most expats, at first Lindsey didn’t know what to do with herself. “I knew I wanted to do something different than what I did in the States,” she says. Though she hadn’t been a professional photographer back home, “I guess because Paris is just so beautiful and interesting, my camera and I became attached at the hip.”

When a pair of newlywed friends visited that autumn, Lindsey naturally took photos of them during their stints around town. “One afternoon they mentioned how nice it was to have me show them around and take photos of them together,” says Lindsey. “They’d spent the first part of their honeymoon in another country, and had no photos of the two of them.”
