Our next workshop will take place at Chateau De Varennes on April 15-19, 2018. 

Mornings will be filled with classes from Sylvie, our business experts and our world class creative team. The afternoons will mostly be all about shooting with film or digital around this beautiful chateau... How to master your brand with your heart, use natural light, compose and direct? After Sylvie demonstrates how to photograph each station, you will be able to create your own body of work with a group of 4 photographers. During this workshop, you will have enough time, content and space to have fun and be creative… we invite you to dig deeper artistically…
