The Val d’Orcia and the Crete Senesi, of great landscape interest in Tuscany, are rich in photographic routes

The Val d’Orcia, a blend of art and landscape, is an expression of wonderful natural features, making it unique in the world. Crossing it means enjoying breathtaking views, wonderful landscapes and many locations celebrated by artists and directors.
This valley is considered by the UNESCO an exceptional example of how the landscape was redesigned in the Renaissance period to reflect the ideals of “good governance” (14th and 15th centuries), typical of the Italian City-state. These beautiful sights had long been celebrated by the painters of the Sienese school, which flourished between the 13th and 15th centuries.

 

As you enter the landscape of the Crete Senesi, southeast of Siena and Val d’Orcia, you appear to be stepping into another world, one which can only be described as “lunar” with its soft sloping grey colored hills, almost entirely deprived of color, or in deep green depending on the season, dotted with gullies, biancane and rows of cypress trees. This represents the most authentic Tuscany.

Thanks to my over 20 years of experience and my knowledge of the area, you can improve your shooting technique, learn how to plan your future photographic trips but, mostly, you will bring home stunning images.
In my Tours and Workshops, I will try to pass on the passion for the landscape of these Tuscan lands that evoke strong emotions to remember for years to come.
Details

This opportunity is open to all: individuals, couples or small groups of 5-10 people; both professionals and amateurs can ask me to take them to Tuscany’s most beautiful spots, from the Val d’Orcia to the area of the Crete Senesi. During these photographic tours, I will take you to the most beautiful spots at the right time in all seasons of the year to make the most of the light and maximize the photographic shooting.

The course can last one or more days; leaving early at dawn to take advantage of the first scattered lights and ending in the evening at sunset to depict an emotionally charged sunset.
