PEOPLE OF PARIS: MEET CLEMENTINE

Is there anything better than a Parisian coffee shop? Perhaps, a Parisian coffee shop that sells flowers too!

Meet 28-year-old Clementine - the founder and owner of Peonies - and the latest subject of my personal project, People of Paris. 

While for now she might be running her own cafe, Clementine admits she hates standing in the same place and also considers herself a model, DJ, author and a former TV journalist. 

Her favourite flowers are peonies, of course, and her favourite coffee? Clementine loves the Gori Gesha from Coutume Brewing Factory. 

You definitely need to check Peonies out - it's on 81 rue fu Faubourg Saint Denis.

PEOPLE OF PARIS: MEET ELISE

Everyone, this is Elise.

Elise, this is everyone.

I met up with the 27-year-old illustrator and a textile designer as part of my People of Paris project. 

Elise, who describes her style as either simple, with touches of colors, or full of pattern, reckons her new apartment is the best secret place in Paris! (She also rates La Buvette restaurant on Rue Henri Monnier!) 

And her advice for someone wanting to move to Paris? Don't hesitate to move! Elise thinks it's a great and romantic city and she loves the way of life here - especially being able to ride bikes around the city and meet up with friends for a glass of wine outside in the sunshine.

THE ROOF TOPS OF PARIS

Whether you're a local or a tourist - there's one thing we all agree on - Paris is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. And, there's no better way to see it than at sunset. 

These pictures were taken for a personal project. Armed with my cameras the gang and I, safely, climbed onto the roof of an apartment in the 9eme disctrict. With the warm summer sun setting over the rows and rows of roofs and chimneys - it really was breathtaking.

It was such a fun and easy shoot - and I can honestly say, I've never seen Paris look so magical. 

PEOPLE OF PARIS: MEET LOUISE DAMAS

This is jewellery designer Louise Damas.

We met as part of my personal project People of People - where I photograph and interview the young creatives that make up the city.

The shoot was outside the gorgeous dog shop Atelier Couronnes, 6 rue Chateau d'Eau, and Louise even introduced me to her pet pooch, Okami!

Louise describes her style as simple and comfortable with little touches of originality and reckons Le Philou, The Grouin Point and Atelier Couronnes (of course) are the three best places in her neighbourhood.
