Florence & Tuscany Photography Workshop

Dates to be Announced

We are so excited to be returning to Florence for another amazing workshop experience!

We will take you to the beautiful city of Florence, Italy, where you'll be exploring the gems of Tuscany, photographing and learning to your hearts desire, living in a centuries-old Italian villa, and dining on amazing italian cuisine.

This ALL INCLUSIVE workshop has a RETREAT feel, including all of your personalized photo instruction, excursions, meals, and accommodations for the perfect workshop experience.

"It was amazing my photos as an amateur could turn out so poetic and beautiful!  I would love a reunion workshop!....They are some of the best travelers I have ever gone with as they made everything so easy!"

Jodi P, 2016 Italy Workshop attendee

Picture yourself…
Standing right here, camera in hand, overlooking the most quintessential Tuscan city, sipping casually on a glass of wine or enjoying yet another you photograph the scene of a lifetime!

Welcome to Firenze! - The quintessential tuscan city

It's really hard to compare any other city to Florence!  It is the artistic cultural center of all of Europe, and literally

everything around every corner is a photo opportunity.  During the week, we'll have at least one full day exploring the city center, where we'll guide you through the streets, soaking in the Italian culture & cuisine, perfecting photo techniques,

and create amazing, wall-worthy images.

Your home for the week - Residenza Palmerino

Residenza Il Palmerino is a centuries old, family owned villa in the gorgeous hills just outside of Florence.  With a relaxed vibe and old-world charm, Palmerino is a completely unique lodging experience.  Our gracious host and villa owner, Federica, will make you feel completely at home, with cozy accommodations and truly delicious, authentic italian cuisine & wine all week long!


One of the best parts of this workshop is the RETREAT feel, and in between photo excursions, we'll be dining on amazing meals to add to your experience all week long.  Imagine the tastes...fresh cheeses from Parma, scrumptous varieties of prosciutto and salami, fruits, fresh fig jam and olives picked right outside from the villas gardens, and wine....always, always wine!

Please bring your appetite!  You'll have a day dedicated to the art of Italian cuisine, including a Tuscan Cooking Class, a Mini Food Photography Class, and we'll end the day with an amazing multi-course meal paired with italian wines.

You'll be creating dishes such as homemdae pasta, meat & cheese stuffed raviolis, tiramisu, and more!
