Springtime in Tuscany
One of my Italian friends once told me to take a week in Tuscany, it would change my life. Having done it, I can promise that this is a photographer's paradise, but during the high season it can also be a nightmare. Skip the heat and the crowds and come enjoy this wonderland just as the flowers arrive and as the fields turn green and orange. We'll start in the ancient cities of Florence and Siena before heading south to the heart of Tuscany and coming back through the medieval sky scraping city of San Gimignano and returning through the Leaning Tower in Pisa.
Learn from a passionate professional
Our photographers are both passionate and knowledgeable about photography and the area. We take you to all the good spots and let you enjoy the journey along the way. We capture as many sunrises and sunsets as weather and the small group will allow, and after shooting, we return to the hotel for a couple post-editing tutorials.
Group size & Options
Not everyone runs at the same pace, and our tours are built to accommodate everyone. We keep group sizes small, so everyone will have some one on one time with the pro. We also will offer different options for everyone. Perhaps someone wants to work on astrophotography late at night, maybe someone else really wants sunrises. We try to be as flexible as possible, so you don't feel like you have to do everything, but you can still get as most out of the experience as you want.

The first day we pick you up at the airport or train station in Florence. From there, we take you to the hotel to drop off your things and relax and have some free time during the heat of the day. Towards evening, we'll take you out for dinner and to photograph the city from the top of the hill overlooking the city.
The second day we take you to the David statue, and to the top of the Dome before heading south to Siena to enjoy the square and go up in the tower overlook. Oh did I mention the amazing gelato we'll have here? Yumm!
We wake up and head south to the heart of Tuscany. We leaave our things in the hotel in PIenza and start our drive around the most amazing countryside with the beautiful Cypruses. You'll love this quiet little Tuscan city, and really get the flavor of Tuscany.
The fourth day, we'll wake up early for sunrise in the fields, and then spend the rest of the day relaxing and going wherever you feel in the heart of Tuscany. We'll also do a post-processing workshop.
We head out in the morning to San Gimignano and the even more stunning countryside around the city. We'll do a couple wine tastings and olive oil tastings in the countryside, and you'll just love this amazing medieval city with it's gigantic towers. At night, you'll get the surreal and totally unique experience of photographing the bats that come out and fly around the city at sunset. This experience alone makes the whole trip to Tuscany worthwhile.
