I’m excited to announce that I’ll be leading a photography workshop in Tuscany this summer!  Tuscan Tableau: Photography On-Location is designed to be an ideal learning vacation for photographers who are looking to build their portfolios and hone their skills.  With a gorgeous Tuscan villa and nearby Italian towns as our backdrop, we will practice lighting and posing techniques while discussing strategies for working with non-models, all while enjoying daily Pilates classes, painting classes, art historical tours, wine tastings, 2 delicious, authentic Tuscan meals a day and more!  Come to Tuscany with me!
