HIDDEN CINQUE TERRE

A LEICA AKADEMIE ITALY WORKSHOP
DATES: COMING SOON | 3 Days | MAXIMUM 8 PARTICIPANTS

The afternoon image review sessions were very helpful, encouraging self-criticism of our images followed by suggestions on processing to bring out the best in them.

HIDDEN CINQUE TERRE

A LEICA AKADEMIE ITALY WORKSHOP

Join us for the second edition of this 3-day Leica Akademie Italy Workshop in Le Cinque Terre and create stunning images taking advantage of the long exposure capabilities of the amazing Leica SL and 24-90mm Vario-Elmarit-SL, exclusively available to you for the whole duration of the Workshop!

For centuries reachable only via the sea, the Cinque Terre are five picturesque old fishermen’s villages clinging on rocky hills overhanging the sea. With their characteristic coloured houses hanging one on top of the other over little natural bays and coves, the Cinque Terre’s landscapes are both very well-known and undiscovered at the same time. While the picturesque villages have been photographed thousands of times, the possibilities for fine art, minimalist, long-exposure detail photography offered by their rocky shores are still almost completely unexplored. This Leica Akademie Italy Workshop will put Vieri Bottazzini’s experience together with the amazing long exposure capabilities of the Leica SL at your service to discover this unexplored side of Le Cinque Terre, while of course capturing the iconic photographs of the villages at sunset and sunrise that you expect!

If you are looking for an even more exclusive, tailor-made Workshop in le Cinque Terre, choose my WORKSHOP ONE-ON-ONE IN LE CINQUE TERRE: organised on demand, completely tailor-made on your level and requirements, my Workshop One-on-One are the top choice among my Workshops!

Vieri

I consider myself a portrait photographer. I portray the beauty of the planet, working in the most spectacular studio of the world: the world itself. A Leica Ambassador, Leica Akademie Italy instructor and Formatt-Hitech Ambassador, since 2010 I combined my passion for photography with my love for nature and the wilderness by dedicating myself exclusively to Fine Art Landscape photography. With 25 years of teaching on my back, I firmly believe that Workshops are the best way to share my enthusiasm for photography and for the Earth’s beauty with like-minded people. My favourite destinations are the American Southwest, Scotland, United Kingdom, Turkey and, of course, Italy where I settled in 2014 after spending 15 years abroad. Associate of the prestigious British Institute of Professional Photography (ABIPP) and European Photographer (EP), my work has been published and exhibited internationally and is part of various private collections. When I am not around the world photographing, teaching, lecturing or adjudicating competitions, I work on my photographs, prepare my Fine Art prints and write reviews and articles about photography.
