The Real Italian Experience

Spring Workshops Suspended. Apply for 2021 Welcome-Back Specials

We look forward to the end of the coronavirus threat and we plan to celebrate with savings on all our events!  Like a free night in Tuscany in 2021 for the first 12 applicants.

We prefer to settle in longer than other photo tours, absorbing the culture instead of the typical  “shoot and dash” travel.  Photographing away from crowds, in the most charming villages, your portfolio will reflect your new and deeper understanding of the area.  Come be immersed in great Renaissance villages and as you truly experience the people, the flavors, and the joys of rural Italy and France.

Your portfolio will never be the same. You may never be the same.

Small Groups, Personalized Photography Instruction

Our workshops average 8-12 participants with 2 professional instructors, so we can offer much more personalized photography instruction than large tour companies.  We combine one-on-one instruction in the field, oodles of free time to experiment and supportive on-screen critiques.  Get ready to be inspired and create your personal best work.
