I’d recommend it without hesitation to Landscape photography lovers of all levels, beginners and advanced alike.
At each location, Vieri provided feedback on composition, advised on the use of filters and guided us on how to achieve the best exposure from the fading light at sunset or the emerging sunrise.
If I have to rate this trip over all, with maximum 5 stars I would give 6!
I greatly admired Vieri’s patience and tact in suggesting us different ways to shoot our photographs while working, some very useful suggestions that helped me to reflect with more attention on my compositions.
I have been on workshops where the instructors are more interested in getting you there to fund their travel so they can do THEIR shooting. This was not the case with Vieri and Zeynep. They could not have been more gracious and attentive hosts. They actually go to the sites ahead of time on their own dime to scout shooting locations, housing and eating establishments.
Vieri’s chosen locations were landscape wonders, the Workshop’s organization was perfect: I hope to be fortuned and privileged enough to participate in other Workshops with you guys, thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Death Valley is definitely one of my personal highlights since I´m interested in photography, not only because of the beautiful scenery of the landscape but also because of the way how Vieri conveyed his opinion what landscape photography can be about.
I had never heard of the Isle of Arran. (…) When I saw the photos on Vieri’s web page I knew I had to go. It did not disappoint. Nor did the workshop hosts. Vieri and Zeynep were wonderful hosts.
We never stop learning for a second during the two days… Vieri and his wife looked after us all the time, offering suggestions always very well received (I hope my resulting images will make them happy as well).
Each night, once our sunset shoot was done, we enjoyed an authentic Italian meal along with many great discussions over a bottle or two of Brunello di Montalcino–a fabulous red!
