A Photo Tour is a sightseeing tour driven by a professional photographer that will lead you to places, not always obvious, where to take the most significant photographs of the city itself. The Photo Tour, lasting one up to eight hours, does not provide a full technical support or education but rather some suggestions on how to get the best image in that situation. Having a Photo Tour means being able to know the hidden sides of a city and often the most important ones in terms of image. It maximizes the time available for taking the most significant images.There is no program defined a priori, but rather there are a number of “paths” designed by the photographer who accompanies and that can be changed depending on weather, lighting conditions, number of participants. Anyone can take a Photo Tour. Does not require any preparation or special knowledge. You will use your own camera, of any type and model are, without preclusions.
