Join photojournalist Alfredo Falvo for a  5-night workshop discovering Tuscany through the lens of a camera. Study the stunning Autumn light that fascinates us everyday as you travel around the Amiata, from mediaeval hilltop cities such as Pitigliano to renaissance jewels of Pienza, using the camera to capture spontaneous photographs in the street and taking in every detail of the beautiful countryside of the UNESCO world heritage site, the Val d'Orcia. Learn how to use your camera to get the best shots and how to edit them like a professional.

    Alfredo Falvo has been working as a photojournalist since 2001 and in 2006 started collaborating with Contrasto photo agency. He has  worked with UNICEF Italy and travelled with them to Africa, working on projects in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Chad and Benin. Alfredo’s stories have been published in The Australian Photojournalist, Vanity Fair, El Pays Semanal, Sport Week and many other magazines and have been included in photography festivals such as ‘Fotonoviembre’ Biennial of Photography, Tenerife, and ‘Visa pour l’Image’, Perpignan, France. In 2006 his book, Lost Angels, won the first prize in the book category at the International Photography Award.
