Tuscany Photo Tour

The picturesque scenery of Tuscany is a paradise for photographers. Join us at this Tuscany photo tour in the heart of Tuscany. We will focus on different aspects of photography in a relaxed atmosphere and spend a lot of time photographing the numerous scenic spots that the region has to offer. The Tuscany photo tour is suitable for both beginners and more advanced photographers. We are able to respond to individual requirements due to the small size of the group. You will have the opportunity to practice and share experiences with like-minded people.

We will spend 4 nights in a small, charming hotel in Pienza in Val d’Orcia. The picturesque Val d’Orcia stands out as having one of the most beautiful sceneries in the whole of Tuscany. The region offers an unbelievably large range of fantastic opportunities for photography which includes typical landscapes with the classic green hills, farms with alleys of cypress trees, villas, chapels and small, untouched medieval towns. From a photography point of view, spring or autumn is the perfect time of the year. During the spring, the landscape is green and many flowers are in bloom. The mist often rises in the early morning which lends a sense of mysticism to the landscape. During the autumn, photographers are also treated to a range of beautiful spots that are perfect to photograph. The fields display beautiful golden-brown tones, the trees wear their autumn finery, beautiful banks of cloud roll by and there are often fantastic light conditions.

We will of course photograph in the best light during the Tuscany photo tour. This means that we will be on the move early in the morning and during the late afternoon. In between we will have time for critique sessions, tutorials and, of course, for a typical Italian siesta!

Spring in Tuscany – Travel time April/Mai

In spring, everything glows lush green and the first flowers bloom. In spring, there is also a good chance of fog in the valleys. The region comes to life and the tourists are now slowly returning.

All pictures were taken in April/May.

Autumn in Tuscany – Travel time November

Autumn arrives much later in Tuscany than it does here in Switzerland. In our experience, the best time to travel is November. This is the time when the chances are particularly high for mystical foggy atmospheres. The landscape is characterised by golden brown and green colours. The days are short and the sunrise and sunset take place at pleasant times. There are also few tourists on the road at this time of year.

All pictures were taken in November.

Great locations. Good group size. In the right place at the right time. Always an answer to questions about motifs, technique or picture ideas. A nice group of fellow photographers and all-round carefree photo support and organisation by Jenny. All this in combination with delicious Italian cuisine in hand-picked restaurants - what more could you want? Thank you, Jenny!

Wilfried

The procedure was excellently organized and the spots were very well chosen. I appreciated the very good accompanying comments of Jenny on the shots. The motivation for getting up early was increased considerably by the group, I couldn't have done it alone. I am aiming for another workshop.

Michaela

Jenny's skills and her warm nature scored so strongly that the grey sky became almost secondary. I would have chosen the same accommodation also by myself, perfect choice, and I also enjoyed the shared rides in the 9-seater. I can only recommend Amazing Views.

Anke

Amazing Views is characterized by the higher quality of its planning and execution at the highest level. The organization and the choice of accommodation is as you would plan it for yourself - perfect! The service is cordial and tailored to each individual. Finally a provider who is seriously interested in the results of his participants and therefore very motivating. Thanks for everything!

Manuela

Jenny is a born organizer. She plans the trip meticulously and checks on site once again to make sure that all spots are accessible before she takes her clients there. She is open for beginners and advanced alike and explains everything patiently and according to the level of the client. And she has chosen sensationally beautiful spots! It was great fun, thank you very much!

Ladina

The Toscana trip was just great! Jenny knows the area very well and so we were able to shoot at the best spots at the best time of day. She takes her time for every single participant and so you benefit enormously. For me as a beginner this was ideal to learn as much as possible - from camera settings to image compositions or even the image editing program Lightroom. The atmosphere in the group was also very pleasant and I really appreciated the exchange with the other participants. I can recommend the trip to everyone. Thanks for a great week and see you soon.

Day 2 to 4 – Capturing the rolling hills of Tuscany

We will set off before sunrise in order to be at our chosen location in good time. Most of the subjects that we will photograph are located in the close vicinity and can be reached within a 30 to 40 minute drive maximum. After we have spent a considerable amount of time photographing, we will return to the hotel for breakfast. After breakfast, there will be an opportunity to attend short tutorials on a number of specific themes (e.g. technical principles, composition, long exposure or workflow when photo editing in Lightroom).
During the course of the afternoon, we will meet for photo critique sessions. We will look at photographs that were taken during the morning which we discuss with the aim of helping each participant to develop his or her photographic skills.
Afterwards, we will set off on another photo session. The evening meal will take place in accordance with the lighting and weather conditions either before, between or after the photo session.
