Dolomiti Photography Workshop

Dolomiti Photography Workshop

Join us in creating authentic Italian photography as we explore the unique landscape and age-old culture of the Dolomites with Leanne Hansen and Lorenzo Acciai!

Widely regarded as one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the world, the pink, lacy Dolomite mountain peaks will serve as the backdrop for one of the most exciting small-group photography tours Italy has ever seen. At every turn, you’ll see why this remarkable region has inspired a strong tradition of Italy landscape photography, and now it’s your turn to join in. As you tour Italy, your leaders will be The Image Flow instructor/landscape photographer Leanne Hansen and Journey Through Italy’s director Lorenzo Acciai. Lorenzo is a fine art photographer with a strong background in portraiture and Italian street photography. With their individual photographic insights and special access, the instructors will guide you through the breathtaking sights like a local.

A unique experience brought to you by a collaboration between The Image Flow, photo gallery based in Marin, CA. and Journey Through Italy.
