How does it work?

The training courses will be held at Jean-Michel's property, the Moulin de l'Angle,

a stunning early-19th century mill, set against a lush, green backdrop.

One of its buildings is furnished specifically to host seminars.

Practical workshops are mainly held in Giverny, the legendary location and home to Claude Monet’s residence.

Attendees will be provided with accommodation for the evening at La Ferme de l'Iles, an elegant yet cosy guest house.

It is located at Autheuil Anthouillet, just two kilometres from the mill.

This charming village is where Simone Signoret and Yves Montant had once their country home.

Training sessions available:

Beginners' Workshops
Black and White Workshops

Post-Production Workshop (including photo retouching, etc.)
