Tuscany Seasonal Photography Workshops

Spring & Autumn

Come to Tuscany for a seasonal photography workshop and spend your days improving your photographic understanding and skills while exploring the lush Val d’Orcia valley. Your camera will be trained on Medieval castles and isolated farmsteads, rolling green hills and hilltop towns, evocative olive groves and umbrella pines. Our daily photographic excursions will take you to breathtaking spring vistas and the lunar-like landscape of the Crete Senesi, as well as the Renaissance cities of Pienza and Siena.

We’ll work on a flexible schedule based on what you want to accomplish in this area where time seems to stand still. Whatever your goals are, you’re sure to build a stunning portfolio as you capture Italian landscapes bathed in the best light of the season.
