Experience Tuscany and its many cultural wonders in this engaging photography excursion!
If you’re looking for your next photography adventure, this Tuscan journey is bound to delight. Timed perfectly during the early autumn, you’ll be inspired by the colorful transition of its rolling hills during the harvest season. From sun-bathed landscape photography to the timeless medieval architecture in Tuscany, the opportunity for amazing images is at every turn of our exciting itinerary. Join instructors Stuart Schwartz and Jeff Zaruba for one of our finest photography workshops in Europe yet.
Our home base for the first six days of our trip to Italy will be Castello di Fonterutoli, a charming bed and breakfast in the heart of the Chianti region. The Castello is an untouched haven of the middle ages with its old terra-cotta floors and beautiful exposed beams. When it’s time to relax after a day of taking travel photos in the stunning Italian countryside, you’ll feel right at home.
From here, we’ll make daily trips to the local farms, vineyards, hillside towns, and even an Alabaster factory. For those interested in food photography, we’ll be helping Italian farmers make cheese by hand, and later on, experience some of the culinary staples of the region with some pasta making and wine tasting.
As we continue to explore Tuscany, we’ll travel to historic Florence, taking up residence in our new home at Hotel Scoti, a boutique hotel located in a 16th-century palazzo in the luxury shopping district on Via de’ Tornabuoni, home to the most fashionable shops and designers in town. Guided by an art historian, we will receive an overview of Florence as the cultural epicenter for Early Italian Renaissance art. We’ll also visit some of the region’s famous artisan small trade shops, including a violin maker and a leather worker. At the close of our expedition, you’ll have an exciting, personal portfolio of travel photography to document your journey.
