Italy - Landscape workshop for two in Orvieto

+ More details

Description

6 night 7 day photography workshop run by Camera Etrusca based in Orvieto, Umbria offers access to a unique area of Central Italy, a land of water: lakes Bolsena and Trasimene, deep gorges, a stretch of almost deserted Mediterranean coast called the Tuscan Maremma, plus the wild romantic landscape of southern Tuscany with its picturesque hill towns, ruined castles and abandoned cities. Founder and course leader Patrick Richmond Nicholas has lived and worked as a pro in Italy for 30 years. He speaks Italian fluently.
The price is for a couple sharing.

  • Very enjoyable talk. Beautiful photographs with entertaining but informative explanations and some personalised information about the women appearing in the photos. The Lisbon workshop I joined with PN was great - brilliant locations some completely off the tourist track with some unusual architectural forms and shapes to photograph. Very attentive teacher with great tips and knowledge. Highly recommended.

  • I really enjoyed the talk with Patrick. I love listening to how other photographers get their ideas and how they go about shooting. He was inspiring.
