MAY 27TH-JUNE 1ST,
MEET AND GREET MAY 26TH at the Lobby of the Hotel La Fortezza
Your reasons for joining me in the Tuscany workshop may be to get inspired from breathing the ‘artistic air’! Tuscany is home to some of the most recognizable art and architecture, art that most of us were exposed to in high school, Michelangelo’s ‘David’ statue, and the works of Botticelli, “The Birth of Venus” and “Primavera.” Perhaps your reasons for joining is to simply enjoy and as well as photograph the extraordinary countryside, with its mountain paths and rolling hills, all covered in a sea of green from the many vineyards and fields of wheat, painted with numerous pockets of red poppy fields and yellow mustard. And for sure you are joining this workshop with the intention of sampling the simple yet wonderful cuisine and wine.
There is a lot to see and do in Tuscany! The difficulty is really where to start and that is where I come in. I know Tuscany very well, so there will be no wasting time on looking for things to shoot! We will shoot with purpose, every day, beginning in Florence and moving south towards Sienna and Arezzo, Cortona, San Gimignano, Lucca and of course you can definitely count on shooting the famous cypress trees of San Quirico D’Orcia; street photography, blue hour photography, astro-photography, landscape photography, sunrise/sunset, macro photography and people photography, Tuscany offers up a smorgasbord of photographic potential and we will be there during the BEST time of year when everything is blooming, the air is fresh and clear and the tourist season has yet to begin.
*We begin in Florence, lodging at the Hotel La Fortezza, for three nights, May 26th, 27th and 28th, (hotel information below). Then we check out the morning of May 29th and for the next four nights, May 29-30-31-Jun 1, we will be lodging at the San Gallo Park Hotel, near the town of Sienna, checking out the morning of June 2nd and everyone will return to Florence by 12pm.
As you will discover, most everything we will photograph is within 90-minutes or closer of this hotel.
Hotel La Fortezza
Hotel San Gallo Park
*The hotel in Florence is my recommendation but you are FREE to choose to stay in Florence at any hotel of your choosing, but the hotel near Sienna is mandatory and all the more reason to book your room at the Hotel San Gallo right away.
