Tuscany has everything to offer when you dream of Italy. Wonderful lush landscape, picturesque old farm houses, wineries, historical towns and cities and romantic little villages with narrow alleys through hundreds of years old houses. A dream for any photographer - we bet you will come home with more photos than you expect. On this 5 day photo tour through Tuscany we will visit all the highlights this areas has to offer. The famous cities like Siena and Lucca. Enchanted villages like Montepulciano, Montalcino and Pienza.  Old Castles, abandoned abbeys and little chapels. And last but not least breathtaking landscapes like Val d'Orcia and the Crete of Siena. 

The Tuscany photo tour will include photography of typical sights, landscape photography, sunrise and sunset shoots and night shoots. The itinerary is flexible allowing for weather and light conditions and can always be adjusted by the group - perhaps to include your favourite sunset spot?

This tour will guide you to the best places in Tuscany, carefully planned for the best light (if weather permits). You will get advice how to capture the best moments, how to compose a photo, how to train your eye to see the best point of views. It will spark your creativity and improve your photographic skills.

 

The tour will also give you all the freedom and space you need to develop your own creativity and create photos with your personality. You will not feel like you are in a "photo school". Our aim is, that you enjoy yourself and find your own pace for taking your individual "master piece".

 

There will be no pressure to rush from one location to the next. As we will travel in small groups, we will be highly flexible with our schedule and may always adjust it to the needs and wishes of our individual group.

 

Do not be worried about bad weather - even in rain we will take interesting and moody photos. There is no bad light - you just have to find the right subjects for rainy photos and we will help you with that.
