Puglia Photography Tour

Approximately - Loading...

Our Puglia photography tour will take place in May 2021. At the heel of Italy, Puglia is an untapped gem for photographers. Its long history as a melting pot of wealthy civilisation during the Greek, Roman and Baroque times, coupled with its fertile soil, extensive coastline and unique trulli architecture that is still lived in today, makes Puglia a truly exceptional destination.

Remarkably, our photography tour of Puglia will include two UNESCO world heritage sites within just over an hour's drive of each other. We have chosen to visit Puglia at a time when tourists are scarce, the countryside is bright with early growth, the weather is temperate before the harsh summer heat, and the light is fantastic.

Puglia Photography Tour - Puglia Landscape Photography

At the heel of Italy, Puglia is an untapped gem for photographers. Its long history as a melting pot of wealthy civilisation during the Greek, Roman and Baroque times, coupled with its fertile soil, extensive coastline and unique trulli architecture that is still lived in today, makes Puglia a truly exceptional destination. Remarkably, our photography tour of Puglia will include two UNESCO world heritage sites within just over an hour's drive of each other. We have chosen to visit Puglia at a time when tourists are scarce, the countryside is bright with early growth, the weather is temperate before the harsh summer heat, and the light is fantastic.

Our photography tour will be a rich mix of landscape and architecture including classic views and alternative image making opportunities. From the fertile fields of central Puglia, dotted with the entrancing cone-topped round trullis, huge olive trees gnarled over hundreds of years and small vineyards, to the Greek-looking whitewashed hilltop and coastal villages with their narrow alleyways and often crumbling features. Our days will be filled with an unusual variety of subject matters and photography opportunities. We will explore a World Heritage awarded city that clings to its rocky defensive location and that is still, in parts, just as it was left when abandoned in the 1950's. We will also have chance to visit charming coastal locations and explore various techniques to create fresh imagery including long exposure, ICM and multiple exposures.

We will be driven around our carefully chosen Puglian locations in a small private coach and will be using two comfortable hotels as our base during the week. Our first base is just 20 minutes from Bari airport, and yet is an idyllic coastal hideaway that feels as though time has forgotten. Our hotel is in the heart of the Old Town in a stylishly converted Benedictine Monastery from where you can hear the waves crashing on the shores just yards from the Hotel's front door. Our second hotel will be in the UNESCO world heritage site of Alberobello with its over 1,000 trullis straddling cobbled narrow streets. This incredible town offers so many photographic opportunities and we can explore the whole town on foot within a short walk of our hotel.

For tours outside of the UK, we will select a recommended flight which will depart from a London airport to the destination. In most cases (unless stated otherwise), the tour leaders will greet you at the destination airport from this flight and return you to the airport at the end of the tour.

Please DO NOT book your flights until advised to do so by the office. Tours have to become viable before we select the recommended flight.

Once a tour has enough bookings to make it viable, you will receive an email to alert you that the recommended flights have been uploaded to your client area on the website.

You are welcome to make alternative travel arrangements. If doing so, please ensure you are at the destination airport for the arrival time of the recommended flight to ensure you can take the transfer to the hotel. Alternatively you can arrange your own transfers and meet the group at the hotel on the first night.
