Welcome to the exciting photography workshop in magic Tuscany. Our photography journey will be more than a holiday, it is a great opportunity to explore and capture the most fascinating parts of Tuscany from sunrise to sunset and Dusk (rolling green hills and vineyards, ancient cathedrals and picturesque churches, thermal baths and bucolic fields, medieval hilltop villages and farmhouses with cypresses, fabulous castles and villas). It is a life-changing experience to discover the breathtaking beauty and secrets of this enchanted land. On this Tuscany photography workshop, you will be immersed at a relaxed pace in nature and in the typical Tuscan lifestyle, between authentic food and special wines. All led by Marco Bulgarelli – photographer native from this land.
Our goal is to capture the soul of Tuscany following an alternative way of fascinating hidden places, known only by locals, or simply showing famous locations from another angle, seeking a different way to show this amazing land. We’ll be always in the right location at the right time of day. Marco Bulgarelli – award-winning photographer – will share his over 15 years long experience helping participants to improve their photography skills and to build a stunning portfolio of Landscape.

The goal of the photography workshop is to build a stunning portfolio, provide both theoretical and practical knowledge and improve visual skills of the participants. First of all, we’ll deal with the topics related to visual perception such as composition, color, black and white, spatial configuration. We will also analyze the many aspects that determine the choice of the pictures and we’ll study image processing. The participants will learn how to develop their own style. The pictures taken will be revised on – screen sessions – submitting images directly from your media card on the Bulgarelli’s Mac. We’ll learn images editing focusing on the aspects of visual art and communication. We aim to build a stunning portfolio with a coherent style by the end of the workshop. The photographic workshop is addressed for beginners and advanced photographers. Marco will follow individual needs, so the participants can shoot at their own speed. Because the workshop is both theoretical and practical based, there is plenty of time to get out and practice the new techniques and ask questions.
