I am a professional photographer who, prior to moving to Genova, worked around Europe on a variety of assignments.

These days, finds me setting up home in this city I love best in the world.  I love to share it with you.  

And so, I'm offering a behind-the-scenes experience of life in Italy.  I can promise it will be no ordinary experience ... from the accommodation, so carefully selected, through to those restaurants and places we'll visit and photograph.  Places that most ordinary tourists simply don't know about.

But more than that, these workshops are about making you confident with your camera, without making it all about technicalities.  I would like to offer a step-by-step, hands-on, repeating as often as is necessary while having fun. experience.  Really having fun.

It's also about you exploring your own way of Seeing, and Capturing the world - and learning to own that.  We'll learn some rules of photography, and we'll discover that it's just fine to break them too.

We will document, and taste, the making of pesto - a famous Genoese dish.  There are ancient candy factories to visit, places where 18th century equipment is still used.  There are markets, both fruit & vegetable and antique ...  and so much more besides.

It's Italy.  Everything is possible.  Ask me.
