Approximately - Loading...

Our Tuscany photography tour will take place in May 2023 with Phil Malpas. Tuscany has been a favourite destination with Light & Land clients for over two decades. 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.

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 forty tours ago. We pride ourselves that in some small measure we have been responsible for making some of these views into iconic images that are known across the world.

Tuscany Photography Tour - Tuscany Landscape Photography

Tuscany has been a favourite destination with Light & Land clients for over two decades. 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.

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 forty tours ago. We pride ourselves that in some small measure we have been responsible for making some of these views into iconic images that are known across the world.

Phil Malpas led his first Tuscany photography tour in 2007 with Clive Minnitt and it was hailed by the participants as a great success. Highlights such as the timeless church at Sant’Antimo and the incomparable dawn views across the Val d'Orcia 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, un-spoilt San Quirico – each have their own beauty, each offer great photographic opportunities.

Phil is also looking forward to taking you 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 Phil’s expert guidance. There will be facilities to conduct critique sessions and Phil will show some of his own images as well as giving talks on a number of photographic topics.

This group will be limited to just 6 participants.

Testimonials:

"Brilliant location, great inspiration and instruction. Everything was well thought through and organised. Fantastic memories." -Andy, May 2022

"This was our first Light & Land full tour. It is a sign of how much we enjoyed the experience that we have already signed up for another extended trip, this time to Andalucia in 2023. Our tutor, Phil Malpas, was always on hand with suggestions and advice as well as having many fascinating stories to tell. We especially appreciated his readiness to adapt his input to our less experienced level. We learned that getting up very early for dawn shoots was something we could cope with and keep smiling! There were several unexpected bonuses: excellent restaurants in San Quirico and elsewhere; how little travelling we needed to do to reach vantage points; photographic opportunities that extended to abandoned houses as well as the invariably breathtaking beauty of the Tuscan countryside; the readiness of other participants to share their experience during and, indeed, after the trip..." -Rob, May 2022

"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, June 2018

"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

Brian - 5th Jun, 2019

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.

28th May, 2019

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!

Rob W. - 10th Jun, 2022

This was our first Light and Land full tour ('our' because my wife and I both participated). It is a sign of how much we enjoyed the experience that we have already signed up for another extended trip, this time to Andulacia/Andulasia in 2023. Our tutor, Phil Malpas, was always on hand with suggestions and advice as well as having many fascinating stories to tell. We especially appreciated his readiness to adapt his input to our less experienced level. We learned that getting up very early f
