Tuscany Phototour

Photo Tour in Tuscany with a Local Photographer to discover this amazing land.


A Dream Photo Tour in Tuscany

The cities of art and the green hills overlooked by fortified medieval villages and typical local cuisine: Tuscany is all this and much, much more.
For a week we will make radial journeys out to photographs the countryside or the cities of art. Undoubtedly there are many interesting places but we will hardly see a tiny part of this land. However I have chosen the best for you as a local photographer. So our base for the trip will be between the wonderful rural area in the heart of Val D’Orcia and Florence. It is a fantastic place with spectacular views, picturesquely situated between the famous rolling Tuscan hills and cypress trees.

Location of the photography workshop

During my Photo Tour in Tuscany we’ll photograph every day, including the first and last day of the trip. Indeed, to take advantage of the best light, we’ll go out to photograph at sunrise and sunset every day, adding as many daytime shooting sessions as well as the weather will let us. Even I grew up in this magic land,i can’t control what the weather’s going to be. So we’ll select our shooting locations for any given day according to that day’s weather.

I represent an international standard of quality in terms of photography workshops tuition and tours. I running workshop from many years and my works has been recognize with internationally awards.

More Info about Me

Raffaele Ferrari Photographer

Since 2013 Raffaele has been organizing photography workshops in Europe and Asia in small groups. Those small workshops offer a personal approach and relationship adapted to each individual. So, it allows a global experience, 24 hours a day, from early morning shooting to the end of the day review. Therefore, the workshop not only focus on the technical aspects of photography, but also on local uses, integrating cultural approach and behaviors. Through the photographer’s gaze, it aims to offer a new perspective of traveling. Raffaele Ferrari speaks and teach in various languages (Spanish, Italian, English).

Invest for skills and experience

I think the best reasons to attend a photography workshop is that you can learn how to make better photos. So i believe that investing in experiences is a much better investment than investing in gear. Also you have some benefit that you don’t find on line or for free. In fact, attending a workshop you can gain distilled wisdom about photography from the instructor.

The Right Gear to Photograph Tuscany

Tuscany is a an amazing, charming and beautiful area and you can capture stunning images in many location, no matter the gear. So even with a phone you would do! Anyway, if you want to make the most of your journey in this workshop, here is some equipment that you might need. This is just a recommendation list.

  • A camera. It doesn’t matter if your camera is a full-frame or APSC if you understand how to use it.
  • A wide-angle lens. Useful in Architecture and in the tiny street in old. Also would be useful for some landscapes scene to fit everything into the frame.
  • A versatile travel zoom, such as 24-105mm or similar. This will come in handy when you need to zoom in town. I don’t suggest a dedicated telephoto, but having something with more reach will definitely help.
  • A tripod Must have for landscape picture and night photography.
  • (Optional) a polarizing filter. A polarizing filter can occasionally be useful, so if you have one, there is no reason not to bring it. But I wouldn’t list it as a hard requirement.
  • (Optional) a drone. If you have a drone, Tuscany is an amazing area to fly it. Anyway are many rules to do it and you have to be careful. In the East years you have to follow European recommendation to do it. Generally you can use just only outside if the city, in the old town you need special permit. Although you can looking this map about flying in Tuscany.
  • mobile for application.
  • Laptop for editing.

Also thanks to tourism in Tuscany, you will find shops and restaurateurs who speak at least basic English. The hotel staff generally speak fluent English. However, don’t expect to be understood everywhere
