ITALY PHOTO TOUR

An intense week of photographic adventures designed especially for those who wish to visit one of the most exciting and evocative parts of Italy.

 
 

Photograph the beauty of Italy by improving your technical and artistic level

 
 

Milan, the commercial capital of Italy, will be the starting point of this Italy Photo Tour for visiting the many iconic places that only in Italy can you find.

Together with your tutor you will discover picturesque places, take amazing shots as well as perfect your photographic technique and consequently your style. Photo tours are much more than the alternative to tourist trips. In fact, they are designed exclusively for photographers. This way they can visit those destinations where they can take extraordinary photographs. Above all, respecting their own needs and timelines.

Lakes, hills, villages and cities will be the privileged subjects of this Italy Photo Tour. Whatever your favorite genre in these intense days you will practice with most of the existing photographic genres. You will be able to alternate between landscape photographs, street photography, architecture and portraits.
Then, in the evening, a festival of lights and reflections will grab your attention until you choose the best shot, set up the tripod in front of you and take the perfect shot, the one you've been looking for a long time or even better, the one you never imagined even existed.

DAY 5: PAVESE HILLS 
The morphology of these hills give rise to wonderful, unique landscapes. From their ridges one can admire the most striking views that span 360 degrees. They are also famous places for the typical dishes that are served with extraordinary wines from the rows of vines grown on these very slopes.

The duration of the Italy Photo Tour extends from Sunday afternoon (4pm) to the morning of the following Sunday (10am) for a total of 8 days and 7 nights. As above is just an outline schedule to let you know how the week is organized, which will surely be different from the previous and the next.

Mari Wilson

Perfectly familiar with the locations of the itineraries, Mino Di Vita took us to areas hidden from other tourists at the right time of day to make us appreciate the atmosphere and inspire us to take extraordinary photographs. Thanks to his advice te We also benefited from his deep photographic knowledge and generous advice on technique-he taught us things about our cameras that we did not know! In addition, he was a friendly and fun host and guide, which enriched our overall experience.

Audrey Davis

Mino's artistic skills are incredible. I learned how to consciously photograph in order to get a publication-ready photo project from my shots. He also taught me to look differently at what is in front of me and avoid taking mundane shots. It was all very constructive and memorable was the patience of this tutor who was very attentive to my needs by adapting his lessons to my level of photographic preparation.

James Miller
