Tuscany Photo Tour

May 5-15, 2018

Leaders: Brenda Tharp and Jed Manwaring

The mere mention of Tuscany Photo Tour elicits oohs and aahs from many of my friends and fellow photographers – and for good reason! The impression this place leaves on visitors is lasting. Tuscany contains from of the best landscape photography of gentle rolling hills, hilltop towns and farmhouses dotting the landscape. Combined with the potential for morning mist, dramatic afternoon clouds,and iconic scenes that simply say ‘Italy’. We are passionate about heading out early to photograph the dawn over these gentle landscapes, and visiting equally beautiful locations for afternoon/sunset light. We love wandering through medieval stone villages in midday, when the people are out and about, along cobbled lanes past houses that have been lived in for hundreds of years, photographing colorful doorway lines with flower pots, capturing moments of people sauntering up the lanes, chatting on a park bench, shopping at an outdoor market. 


Around every corner of the winding dirt roads that meander through this region of Italy, there are photographic opportunities waiting. And the food – well, let’s just say it’s legendary – but we don’t spend too much time indulging, because our priorities are photography first, food second, and then sleep!  

Join us for our return to the area where we have led almost a dozen photo tours, a land that we know and love. You’ll come away with great images and a wonderful experience, too!

Our day to day itinerary will be ‘sunrise to sunset’ with breaks in midday. Visits to outstanding landscape locations, picturesque villages, and twilight photography are part of our schedule, too. We stay in Pienza in the heart of the Val D’Orcia, to be near to all our favorite places for photography. Our schedule is flexible to meet the weather conditions.
