General informations:

This type of workshop is the most sophisticated and ideal solution for those who would like to participate in one of the workshops offered on this site. In fact, these workshops are absolutely customized to the applicant's needs with regard to location, timing, duration and contents of the workshop itself. Often you can not catch the atmosphere of a place because you may find that you have had little time available or have not been sufficiently paused for more valid photographic situations.
The customization of the workshop obviously remedies these situations because it presupposes to share the content that the workshop will have.

Content sharing and planning:

It is crucial to the success and activation of the workshop itself. The applicant will be given a rough schedule on the places and times to be respected. Such planning will then be discussed and shared between the author and the participant.


It is implied that a customized course will cost more than a collective one. And since the core feature of such workshops is flexibility, costs will have to be quantified from time to time.

Extension for another student:

For the applicant, it is possible to split the workshop costs with one or two other participants at most. In that case, the same applicant will have to take charge of the finding of the other students who will have to pay individually a quote of about the 25% of the workshop cost.
Obviously this sharing will not be possible for the living costs of the workshop such as airline tickets, rent of rooms, entrance tickets to parks, meal costs and so on. Instead, it will be possible to share, for example, the costs of teaching, fuel, car rental and anything else as far as possible.

Methods of participation:

Once the workshop has been scheduled and the dates are set, within a reasonable period of time, an advance of 50% of the total cost will be paid or, in any case, sufficient to cover the airline tickets or the expenses that must be avoided in advance. At the start, the balance will be the total.


This type is applicable to each workshop indicated on the relevant page of this site.

The program may be subject to variations depending on unforeseeable events or particular needs of the group with the consent of the organization.

Disclaimer: Each participant will be asked to sign a release (sent by mail when the workshop is completed) for any injuries that may occur while hiking. Alternatively, you can turn on a personal injury insurance whose costs will be reported later.

The National Park of Circeo is one of the four historic Italian parks, togheter with the Gran Paradiso, the Stelvio and the Park of Abruzzo.

In some special circumstances, and in some specific places is possible to shoot the belling and fighting among males. The period ranges from September to October but it's still very limited in time and this workshop requires advanced and punctual planning.

Females and young do not presents problems of any kind, while the males are a bit more elusive. But the winter snow forces them to come to share more low and, knowing where they are, they are also quite easy to photograph.

Matese Lake

Many years ago, I found this place in a fairly populated area, the south of Campania region. In summer the lake Matese does not offer a great show but in winter the place becomes one of the absolute most beautiful place I've ever seen in Italy. This is due to special conditions of wind and cold that cause the lake ice completely (we are at 1300 meters), and that the ice carved present, because of the wind, offering sensational photographic opportunities. The crystal clear air and the presence of snow-capped mountains near the lake, then, make that we will see amazing sunrises and sunsets. If you come to this place not simenticherete easily.

The latter especially are so confident to do the nests on the shores. So it's possible to photograph the nesting of this animal and all stages of its ethology.

The Plain of Castelluccio of Norcia

The plain of Castelluccio di Norcia is, probably, one of the most photographed places in Umbria and central Italy. This is especially true for the well-known phenomenon of flowering, when the cultivation of poppy, lentil and other essences tinged the plain as a palette of a painter. Actually this phenomenon is not easly photographed because it's variable throughout the year and not defined in time. In this case, given the impossibility of reservations even if not months before, the only way is a day trip. But the plain is magic even in winter when it freezes entirely. It 'also a great area for night photography.
