Discover the Iconic Eiffel Tower: Simon Bayliss Photography

Welcome to my wall art galleries featuring Paris wall art and the Eiffel Tower. 

As a professional photographer, I am thrilled to present my collection of Photography Prints showcasing the iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris. La Tour Eiffel (The Eiffel Tower) is one of the genuinely significant iconic landmarks in the world; it is one of the many things that symbolize Paris. Built as a part of the 1889 World Fair and was only intended to be part of the Parisian skyline for 20 years, 118 years later, the 'Iron Lady' remains one of the most beautiful and recognized structures in the world.

It is a beautiful opportunity for a professional photographer to visit, experience, and photograph Paris and then produce Parisian photography prints focusing on the Eiffel Tower!

It is so recognizable that it is a genuinely surreal experience the first time one experiences it in real life. It is impressive and moving to see it in person. Unsurprisingly, over 6 million people visit the Eiffel Tower each year (650+ million people have visited since it opened).

Gustave Eiffel designed the Tower for the Paris World Fair of 1889 in honour of the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution. The Eiffel Tower (La Tour Eiffel) is probably one of the world's most photographed structures; herein lies the challenge... to try and photograph it differently. Nothing is right or wrong when photographing the Iron Lady.

Some quick facts on La Tour Eiffel: It has been repainted 18 times, and its 19th in 2009-10; at 919m, it was the tallest structure in Paris and was the tallest in the world for 40 years; the foundations go 15 metres below ground, it was derided and disliked by many Parisians during its construction after its intended 20 years 'life' it was to be dismantled but Gustave Eiffel had an idea to is it as a military radio tower; an idea that stopped it from being dismantled.

Join me on a visual journey through Paris, where each image captures the allure and grandeur of the Eiffel Tower in its various perspectives and moods.
