In his Italy Photography Workshops, Jeff Curto puts more than 30 years of professional photography and college-level photo teaching experience to work leading small (7 person maximum) groups to Tuscany, Umbria, Puglia, Sicily and other great Italian locations. Workshop participants return home with great photographs and unforgettable memories.
Jeff says, “I think of these experiences as both cultural and photographic immersion. There is formal, “classroom-style” instruction, but most of our time is spent photographing and learning together in the field. Before each workshop week, I ask each participant to outline their goals and then I tailor curriculum to each person to help them meet those goals. Critique sessions of your images provide you with immediate feedback of your progress and increase the learning opportunities for everyone in the group.”
Each week divides its photographic time between rural and in-town locations and everything in between. You will meet – and photograph – artisans who make wine, cheese and olive oil and learn about Italian art, culture and history. Some mornings, we’ll be up early to catch morning light; some evenings, dinner (always taken at great local restaurants, where you’ll order from the menu) will wait while we catch the last rays of the sun.
The workshops are based on an all-inclusive strategy. Beautiful single-occupancy accommodations, ground transportation, meals, guides, tips, etc are all included, all you have to do is arrive, make photographs and learn.
Prior to each workshop, each participant receives extensive pre-trip documents about Italian culture, travel tips, photography tips and instruction and more, culminating in a 60+ page e-book that helps them prepare for our time together and gives you a resource once you are back home.
