Tuscany has been a favourite photography tour destination with Light & Land clients for over a decade now. It is a region with fabulous photographic opportunities – the sculptural cypresses, the picturesque, gently decaying buildings scattered - as if by an artist’s hand - across the softly rolling landscape and the beautiful Renaissance architecture of jewel-like cities such as Pienza and Siena.

Phil Malpas and Clive Minnitt jointly led their first Tuscany photography tour in 2007 and it was hailed by the participants as a great success. As well as highlights such as the timeless church at Sant’Antimo and the incomparable Campo in Siena are ‘must do’s’, they are looking forward to taking clients to a number of new locations which will excite those looking to photograph more of Tuscany’s hidden secrets.

Tuscany Photography Tour - Tuscany Landscape Photography

Tuscany has been a favourite photography tour destination with Light & Land clients for over a decade now. It is a region with fabulous photographic opportunities – the sculptural cypresses, the picturesque, gently decaying buildings scattered - as if by an artist’s hand - across the softly rolling landscape and the beautiful Renaissance architecture of jewel-like cities such as Pienza and Siena.

It feels almost as if five hundred years ago a group of Italians sat down and decided that they would make this corner of their land perfect for photographers. We were the first tour company to start taking clients to photograph sights such as the famous Belvedere, now more than twenty tours ago. We pride ourselves that in some small measure we have been responsible for making some of these views iconic images known across the world.

Phil & Clive jointly led their first Tuscany photography tour in 2007 and it was hailed by the participants as a great success.

Highlights such as the timeless church at Sant’Antimo and the incomparable Campo in Siena are ‘must do’s’. Within forty kilometres of our base are countless beautiful and ancient small towns and villages for us to explore: the utopian “New Town” of Pienza, built on Papal edict and crammed with fabulous buildings, the perfect marble church of San Biagio at Montepulciano and the quiet, unspoilt San Quirico – each have their own beauty, each offer great photographic opportunities.

Phil and Clive will also look forward to taking clients to a number of new locations, which will excite those looking to photograph more of Tuscany’s hidden secrets.

We will travel around the beautiful Tuscan landscape in a spacious people carrier and you will be able to photograph to your hearts content under the leaders’ expert guidance. Participants are invited to bring along their work for a friendly and insightful appraisal. There will be facilities to conduct critique sessions and Phil and Clive will show some of their own images as well as giving talks on a number of photographic topics.

"Thanks for such an amazing week - you and Phil were incredible leaders - and what a wonderful group we had. I feel very lucky to have been part of it. Really appreciated all the time you two took with me - I learned so much - and it was such fun"- Margie, June 2017

"Thankyou Clive for your message and good wishes. John and I had a brilliant time with you, Phil and the rest of the group. It is amazing how you rise to the challenge of such diverse needs within the group so that everyone feels they have benefitted from your expertise. I certainly have many things to take away from the experiences you gave us and hopefully my photography will improve some more. We are seriously considering the Scotland trip. Best Wishes"- Hazel Price, June 2018

The trip was very well planned and although the weather wasn't always co-operative the leaders always had another plan for poor weather. The hotel was OK but for the trip it was in just the right location, which was important. Organisation also very good.

Nigel - 4th Jun, 2019

Brilliantly organised trip and a lot of fun. Also a great learning experience. The "dynamic duo" never fail to deliver.

Susana - 3rd Jun, 2019

Phil and Clive know in every moment how to motivate and encourage the group even when conditions are not the best. Great atmosphere and experience. Everything very well organized

Louise - 29th May, 2019

A difficult review to write as my entire experience was so positive. From the outset, a very well organised trip. From the great locations and knowledgeable, encouraging tutors - the wonderful Clive and Phil - to a pleasant hotel and some fantastic restaurants. We even managed some great light! The first time I have ventured out with Light and Land, but certainly not the last. I am already considering my options for next time!

Adam - 28th May, 2019

Excellent leaders, great accommodation and food; wide variety of subject matter and a friendly group of participants.

Robert - 28th May, 2019

Great locations and organisation by the leaders. Good help and input into the taking memorable pictures. Hotel good and food at local restaurants excellent. Leaders put great efforts into the week and made it fun, even when getting up for the sunrise.

Ask me in 3 weeks time when I have finished photo editing

Ian - 27th May, 2019

This is my third trip with Phil and Clive. Their knowledge and help is second to none. Their aim is always to help us as much as possible.

Godfray - 27th May, 2019

Another excellent Tour to Tuscany. The weather wasn't always of the best but Clive and Phil tailored the various activities to take this into account, ensuring that we made the best use of our time. That's the huge advantage of being with leaders who are so familiar with the area. The hotel was very good and the restaurants chosen in San Quirico were excellent. As always, Phil and Clive could not have done more for us and made it a most enjoyable week - thank you.

27th May, 2019

Phil and Clive were great hosts. Their organisation and care was exceptional

Eleanor - 27th May, 2019

Perfect location, great leaders and organisation.

Lorraine - 25th May, 2019

The leaders were both informative and entertaining and I was fortunate enough to be part of a great group of people. Will definitely be booking with Clive and Phil again, a credit to your company.

Christine - 22nd May, 2019

Clive and Phil could not have done more to make this a throughly enjoyable holiday. Their photographic knowledge is without bounds, their humour legendary. I would definitely recommend this tour.

David - 20th May, 2019

A fantastic week; I learned a lot, saw beautiful places and landscapes. Our instructors Phil and Clive were brilliantly dedicated and had obviously spent a lot of time researching both locations and time of day to photograph. This was my first Land & Light trip, and I look forward to joining more!

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.
