Tuscany is a fascinating location that every photographer should visit at least once in a lifetime. The photo tour I’m organizing in the area during the month of May is open for all those that are passionate about landscape and travel photography, regardless of camera gear and knowledge of photography.

Sunrise and sunset will be the most important moments of the day and I’ll include some of the most well known spots in Tuscany. We’ll also photograph in towns like Pitigliano, San Casciano dei Bagni, Montepulciano, Pienza, Bagno Vignoni and Chianciano Terme. There will also be day tours on the back roads from Val D’Orcia area of Tuscany. During morning, on the way back to the hotel we’ll often stop at some beautiful Tuscan properties to photograph it in the best light possible.

The structure of every day will be as follows: sunrise session, on the way back to the hotel we’ll go on different roads to capture as many photos as possible in the morning light, return to the hotel for breakfast, leave for a day tour and finally sunset session.
