COMACCHIO AND THE PO’S DELTA

A LEICA AKADEMIE ITALY WORKSHOP

Join us for the second edition of this Leica Akademie Italy Workshop to create beautiful images of the moving, melancholic landscapes resulting from the struggle of nature against man, for ages battling to get control of ground and water in the Valli di Comacchio and the Po’s Delta! The river Po is Italy’s longest and largest river as well as the one with the highest water’s discharge; its floods both made the Po Valley incredibly fertile and a very dangerous area for man to live in. Since the twelfth century, man built canals, dikes, embankments and dams to control the waters, to minimise the destructions brought by the floods and to turn the wetlands, lagoons and swamps into usable land, thus profoundly influencing and modifying the way the landscape looks today. Nature fought back by submerging fishermen’s huts, destroying piers and sinking boats; so it went on for centuries, and so is still going on today. This Leica Akademie Italy Workshop will put Vieri Bottazzini’s experience together with the power of the Leica SL at your service to portray the beauty of the landscapes of the Valli di Comacchio and the Po’s Delta!

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

LEICA AKADEMIE ITALY WORKSHOP ALUMNI’S COMMENTS

Vieri’s suggestions, always offered with tact, never made me feel like a student, but like a colleague. What could sound like just an exchange of observation at first, in retrospect revealed itself to be priceless teachings.

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.
