Camera Position Special Edition : Tuscany Workshop Announcement

I am very pleased to announce that I will be leading a workshop to Tuscany this May.

In Search of the Personal:
Photographing Tuscany with Jeff Curto

Saturday, May 16 to Saturday, May 23, 2009

Visit the Workshop Website

Enjoy a photographic journey where you will experience many aspects of Tuscany’s remarkable culture, landscape and hill towns and work towards a personal photographic response to the Tuscan sense of place.

Working from our base at the beautiful Casa Cornacchi, located near Bucine, ideally situated in the Chianti area halfway between Siena and Arezzo, we will fan out across the Tuscan landscape and explore hill towns, markets, vineyards and the remarkable architecture of the region. By immersing ourselves in the culture, we will get to know the people, food and wine of the region. I will push you to go beyond the picturesque and help you discover your own response to the texture, rhythm and spirit of Tuscany.

This workshop is limited to a maximum of 12 participants in order to ensure the best level of personal instructional attention. This is an intermediate-level photographic experience; participants should have at least three years experience making photographs, have a basic understanding of photographic processes and technology and should be comfortable using a digital SLR camera in manual mode.

  1. Hi Jeff. Sounds idyllic. Any chance of you organising something like a weekend workshop for your euro-zone listeners, seeing as you’ll be in the neighbourhood?

  2. Hi, Michael;

    Thanks for your comment.

    At this point, as I try to get this idea off the ground, something for a shorter term isn’t possible for me, especially because it’s harder to address things like content and concept in a short period of time.

    However, I do want to do things like weekend workshops (or a weekend that tags on to a longer experience) on into the future. I also plan to expand to doing some cities (Rome, especially), which won’t be as expensive because ground transportation costs won’t be so high (transporting the group to the locations where we’ll photograph is one of the most expensive parts of the workshop).

    But, it’s doing trips like this that allows me to keep producing the free content that I put out there (like Camera Position and the History of Photography Podcast). Also, producing a high-quality experience (both educationally and culturally) is important to me.
