Tuscany Photo Workshop & Tour October 2020

October 4 @ 12:00 pm - October 11 @ 12:00 pm

$210.00 – $4550.00

Have you ever fantasized about traveling the Tuscan countryside with your camera with someone who knows exactly where to go and which camera settings to use to make amazing photographs?

Join us for an 8 day/7 night guided tour and photography workshop through the vineyards and iconic villages of Tuscany.  Join Peggy Farren and our local Italian guide, Stefano Caporali, for a week of photography and fun in Tuscany!  Stefano is an active photographer and instructor who lives right in the area so knows the best photo spots, as well as the people, best places to eat and stay!  The 2019 Tuscany Photo Workshop was such a hit (read our TripAdvisor reviews) so we are offering another one for 2020!

We want this photo trip to be a mind-blowing experience for you!  You will be taken to amazing spots at the best light.  Peggy and Stefano will give lessons and suggestions along the way.  We’ll have formal editing lessons so not only will you take amazing photographs, you’ll process them for even more impact!

The photography will be amazing, and we are also adding some fun, Italian things to do.  We are still working on the details but you know food and wine will be involved!   

This time, we have decided to stay right in the ancient town of Pienza (originally established in the 9th century!).  In 1996, UNESCO declared the town a World Heritage Site, and in 2004 the entire valley, the Val d’Orcia, was included on the list of UNESCO‘s World Cultural Landscapes.

Please note that sunrise and sunset are approximately 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 pm every day this week.
