Get the best shots of Monet's house and gardens with this private excursion to Giverny! This one-on-one experience is perfect to develop your own creative vision!
The photographer will meet you at your hotel and you will take a private car to Giverny. As Claude Monet saw the countryside of Giverny from his train window in 1883 he instantly fell in love with this stunning place. Feel inspired by the spirit of Monet which lives on in the famous gardens he created around his humble residence where he lived with his family until his death in 1926. The gardens invoke the artist in us all with their picturesque willow trees, water lilies, and orchards. They are as pretty as a painting... or a photograph.
Whether you are starting off, are a hobbyist, or have years of experience, our team of professional photographers will find superb photographic opportunities for all kinds of interests, from the Clos Normandy to the Water Garden with its famed Japanese Bridge, and taking in the quaint village of Giverny.
Each tour is crafted to the skills and needs of the participants. Apart from taking photos, you can also expect to learn:
- Creative composition, using lines, repetition, camera angles
- Training your eye: composition, subjects, lighting
- Close up floral photography
- Taking control of your camera: f-stop, shutter speed, ISO and focusing
- Reviewing your photography
In the tour, we cover the interior of Monet's house, the Clos Normand, the Water Gardens as well as the village of Giverny itself. Make sure to pack your comfortable shoes. You won't be on your feet the entire time, we will have a little break to make sure we grab a bite to eat and we can talk about photography before we head back to Paris.
