Journey Through Italy: Learn from the Pro Riccardo Fracassi, Trained by Serge Ramelli!

Take a trip
through Italy!

April 12-19, 2024

I am thrilled to introduce your instructor Riccardo Fracassi! Riccardo has won many awards in recent years including the Photo Serge Academy Award.

Riccardo has lived in Italy for many years and is the ideal guide for your 7-day photography adventure.

Italy has a rich, deep history and landscapes so stunning you'll think you've stepped inside a Renaissance painting. I am not joking when I say it's hard to find a corner of Italy that doesn't look like a romantic postcard!

Luckily for you, Riccardo knows every iconic landmark and hidden gem there is to find. We can accept a group of 12 photographers at the workshop. I want to keep a small group so you can enjoy this experience to the fullest!

  • Your camera,
  • a tripod,
  • a wireless remote or cable release,
  • a wide-angle lens (24mm or wider),
  • a telephoto lens,
  • a ND filter (10-stops or higher) for long exposures,
  • a laptop with Lightroom or Photoshop (or both) for the post-processing.
  • (Optional) ND Filter 1000, 70 - 200.

The weather in Italy is pretty warm so I would advise you to bring pretty light clothing, but it can get cold at night, so bring at least a sweater and it can rain so be ready for this too! We will be walking a lot during our photo hunting so be ready for that, and make sure that you are in good health and bring some comfortable shoes.

I accept all level of experience in photography, but just make sure you have the gear needed; otherwise it will be no fun for you. If you are missing a lens or a ND filter don’t worry about it!

If you are planning on bringing your husband or wife and they are NOT participating in the workshop, the cost is an additional $1,000. This will cover city tax, transportation and meals.

If you want to bring your husband or wife and they plan on participating in the workshop, the cost is an additional $5,500 instead of $7,500.
