Every day we’ll define the best shooting location according to the weather and you’ll be an active part of this planning process in order to let you develop not only your photographic skills but also the location management, an essential skill for a landscape photographer.

The small size of the group will let you have the possibility to discuss during your shooting with the teachers in every moment in order to maximize the learning experience.
