My Photography Tours are a mix of adventure and teaching, always taking place in wonderful and exciting locations in Italy and France. A one-to-one or small group photography workshops is doubtlessly the best way for kick-starting your landscape photography hobby, fine tune your skills or analyze in depth a particular topic or technique.
My workshops are not intended as only formal teaching and instructions, they are more about wandering in some of the best natural and urban environments I know and getting fully immersed in photography.
A "learn by doing" kind of education, as I answer questions and solve problems as they arises, completed by a debriefing in the evening when we will thoroughly review and critique together the work done in the day, and we will analyze in details basic and advanced techniques of image processing.
On average we will spend from 8 to 10 hours a day in the field, every day in a different shooting location, having big fun in chasing the best possible light and scouting the area looking for images that capture the innermost beauty of the amazing world around us.
Join me on a fully customizable, off-the-beaten-path ‘one-on-one’ or small group photography workshop. Develop your vision, learn new photography skills, experiment with advanced shooting techniques, master the most effective image processing procedures, all while enjoying in the good company of an experienced Italian landscape photographer an enthralling outdoor experience in some of the best natural environments and cities of Italy and abroad.
Paolo De Faveri's workshops are designed to help take your creativity to a new level. Through a combination of both in-the-field shooting sessions and image-processing instructions on many different topics both technical and artistic, I want to inspire you to start thinking differently as an artist and spark your artistic vision.
Mountains or coast, city or rural, in every season there is at least one particular area capable of offering an unforgettable photography experience.
Usually based on a two, three or four days timeframe, you can personally decide about the length and the period, and choose the locations that you want to visit and photograph, or leave the decision making to me and let me create for you the best possible itinerary, tailored to your personal needs, expertise level, time availability and period of the year, at an extent that is usually very difficult, if not impossible, to reach with big groups.
So drop everything, pack your bags and pick the next flight! I am looking forward to meeting you in person soon and starting our photography tour about the incomparable beauties of the Bel Paese.
I consider myself very lucky because I live in what I believe is one of the most exciting areas in Italy for landscape and nature photographers.
Majestic peaks, glaciers, waterfalls and lakes in the Alps; enchanted rural sceneries, vineyards and medieval towns in the hills of Piedmont, the land of world-famous wines such as Barolo and Barbaresco; the romantic sights of Lake Maggiore, Orta and Viverone; the amazing Italian Riviera on the Ligurian coast featuring worldwide renowned sites such as Cinque Terre, Portofino and Portovenere...
It is all here at an easy reach, as the farthest location is at no more than two hours driving from my studio.
Furthermore, what I consider the most beautiful city in the world, Venice, is only a bit further away, and the same can be said for the wonderful hills of the Orcia Valley and Chianti in Tuscany, and the world famous peaks of the Dolomites in the regions of Veneto and Alto Adige/South Tyrol.

I have been photographing these and many other locations for years, and now I want to share with you what I have learnt from my journey in the field of fine art landscape photography.
My workshops are specifically designed for single participants or small groups of students, and they are intended for people who looks for engaging, full immersion photography experiences.
Private or small group tuition is a flexible, practice-led approach to learning and exploring your photography and get the most from such experience. My attention to detail ensures that your time is very well spent and that your photography will benefit greatly as a result of my tutoring and professionalism.
