Tuscany Photograph Day Workshop with the local expert

As a native of this area, my idea for these photography workshops emerged from my familiarity with both the land and the people who make it memorable. Photographing the local landscapes is very fulfilling: this is one of Italy’s most photogenic areas. However, having the chance to photograph the people who live and work here is what makes your experience with me unique. At the same time, you will learn to use your camera in different situations, as taking a photo of a landscape requires different skills than photographing a farmer milking his sheep. The light is different, the framing is different, the subject is different. My experience as a photographer and background as a storyteller and reportage photographer feed into my workshops, and you will go home not only with landscape photography but also with the stories that your images narrate.
My best advice? Take one of my workshops at the beginning of your holiday, so that you can practice what you learned in the days that follow.
