We had a great day in Val D'Orcia with this talented photographer. Leonardo made a special effort to meet us for dinner the night before to customize our experience. He easily shared his expertise and took us to amazing locations. We had a memorable lunch on the terrace in Pienza along the way which added to our delightful day. We took a break in the afternoon and he guided us through post-production work flow with Photoshop on a laptop. He encouraged us to try it ourselves. After the workshop, he recorded a post-production session, sent it to us and offered to critique our images. Leonardo has a deep love for the Tuscan countryside. His appreciation of the landscape enhanced our own experience.
I have just returned home after spending a week photographing Tuscany with Tuscany Photography Tours and Leonardo Papera. I can say this was the best photographic experience of my life. Leonardo is an engaging and energetic young man who is passionate about landscape photography. The tour was a wonderful balance of exceptional landscape photography opportunities, instruction in technique and post-processing, and exploration of the many old walled cities of this region. Leonardo was both encouraging and challenging and you can see how photographers of all skill levels feel very comfortable with him and his guidance. The accommodations were excellent and the food exceptional. Without reservation I can highly recommend any photographer looking for a memorable experience in general, and wanting to photograph Tuscany in particular, to contact Leonardo.
