Explore multiple facets of photography in the inspiring region of Umbria, Italy!
Stuart Schwartz and Jeff Zaruba will lead a new workshop to the gorgeous region of Umbria in Northern Italy. This workshop is specifically designed for photographers who want to explore multiple facets of photography—landscape, documentary, food, still life, and portraiture—in a new and inspiring location.
This is a unique opportunity to use all of your talents in photography to capture and document the slow-paced life of the artisans of the area like vintners, cheese makers, olive growers, pasta makers, and the restaurants and boutiques they supply. We’ll be photographing the local residents—not models—and you’re sure to find some fantastic faces to portray.
The landscapes in Umbria are as unique as the architecture and we’ll tour the region with local residents as our guides. We’ll travel off the beaten track to view and photograph the flora and fauna most beloved by Umbria’s colorful inhabitants.
Umbria is also where the Slow Food movement began. We’ll visit with local chefs and perhaps even the founder of the movement Carlo Petrini to learn about the philosophy of Slow Food and photograph authentic Italian dishes.
This workshop will be held in conjunction with the La Romita School of Art. The director of the school is an American who speaks fluent Italian and is an expert historian on this area of Umbria.
We’ll stay in a 15th-century monastery in Umbria and all meals with the group will be included. Photographers may include their spouses who will not take part in the workshop at a reduced price.
Price TBD pending final arrangements
