Chris Borg Photography Weekend Workshops
Along with your camera bring sensible footwear and a sense of adventure. We are going to be seeking out the most heart stopping sights in Southern Tuscany
Dates are: 19-22 June & September 18-21
In 2017 we had the fortune to welcome the very talented photographer Chris Borg to the house. Chris was here for film and photography. Since then he has returned many times, always with camera(s) and drone, hopping out of bed at dawn and exploring day long. Now with deep knowledge of the area, Chris is returning in June and September of 2020 to work with us on two Tuscany Photography Weekends.
The weekends will be a fun way to explore the area as well as an opportunity to create some amazing images. We will be focussing on countryside locations but also fitting in as much as we can along the way including some unmissable local hilltowns and a possibly even a winery or two. You can get a feel for it in Chris’s photography below and film, ‘someplace in Tuscany’ at the bottom of this page.
