Where do the tours start from?

The meeting point is Montepulciano where you will be able to park your car and meet with Alfredo.

What are the options?

Depending on your interests and on what you wish to learn, Alfredo runs regular workshops with a different theme changing daily. If you wish to master low light techniques, some of its tours take you to wine cellars and churches, if you are interested in people, Alfredo will accompany you to local artisans, cheese producers and artists.


All workshops include landscape photography, either in the morning or in the evening. If you choose to be with him for more than a day you could visit different locations as there is plenty of it or there are some extra things you may be interested in as a critique of the images taken during the previous day – selecting photos and learn why some work or some don’t. You might also choose to have the opportunity to master skills like retouching, post production and all the technical details you need to know for printing, sending or archiving images.


You can apply to one of the Daily workshops displayed on his website or you can have one customised to your needs.
