This Tuscany Photography Workshop is not the usual cliché Tuscany. This Tuscany Photography Workshop is located in the diverse and dramatic landscape of northern Tuscany. Northern Tuscany has a more mountainous and therefore, a more varied landscape than the southern parts of Tuscany.

Our Tuscany photography workshop is hosted in the Garfagnana region of north-west Tuscany. Garfagnana lies in a more isolated region of Tuscany which keeps it tucked away from the hordes of tourists associated with many other parts of Tuscany. This ensures that during your entire workshop, you are able to relax from the stresses and strains of everyday life, avoid the crazy driving and not worry about being ripped off in every shop and restaurant. The landscape of northern Tuscany blends rugged mountains with broad valleys where olive trees, vines and chestnut trees form a lush green blanket, contrasting with traditional terracotta roofs. This provides a diverse and idyllic scenery for our photography workshops and is beautiful in every season. This all lends itself to you having a memorable and truly inspiring photography holiday.

Our base for our Tuscany photography workshop is the stunning photogenic medieval town of Barga. The town sits proud of the Serchio valley and offers panoramic views in all directions while its medieval network of tight narrow streets, flanked by ancient architecture, presents photographers with no end of opportunities.

Oh, and the food! The Garfagnana region of Tuscany is famous for its food, both in variety and quality. Even Italians travel from all over Italy to spend time in Garfagnana because of its scenery, clean mountain air and its cuisine.

Martin has spent over 30 years visiting this area and has amassed thousands of photographs, many of which have been sold. He has an intimate knowledge of the area, its people and its culture and will be able to guide you through every step of this Tuscany photography workshop.

Regardless of your experience, you will learn and progress your photography techniques rapidly under the close guidance of Martin and Tom. They will be present throughout each day’s shooting and will work closely with you to ensure you get a collection of images that you will cherish for life.


We aim to make each of our Tuscany photography workshops a relaxing environment for you to discover and photograph the unspoilt and most authentic part of Tuscany. You will be able to take your time while composing, discussing and photographing each of the locations.

La Mezzaluna RoomDuring your visit to Tuscany, you are provided with your own room at La Mezzaluna. This B&B is located 4km from Barga and has spectacular views of the Apuan Alps. It is the perfect base for our workshop due to its location and the warm welcome from your host, Rita.

The location of La Mezzaluna allows us instant access to the local roads in all directions. After leaving La Mezzaluna, we can drive in any direction and reach our destinations quickly, meaning we spend less time driving, and more time photographing.

Our host, Rita, has lived and worked in Garfagnana for over 30 years. Rita owned and ran her restaurant for 30 years until recently opening it up to host Tuscan cooking classes. So, your host is a Tuscan chef of 30 plus years who now teaches the skills of Tuscan cuisine to students from all around the world. What a place to stay!
