Seeing the Tuscan countryside is amazing, but it's a different experience to see it also from the perspective of a professional photographer. My husband and I drove up from Florence to spend the day exploring and photographing the landscapes and villages in the Val D'Orcia region. This was equal parts tour, and photography workshop. Alfredo is extremely personable, and very patient. He is able to gauge skill level and tailor his instruction to suit the individual. Our tour did not focus solely on landscapes, we also got the chance to do a little street photography, and visit some sites used in the film the Gladiator. We sat down to lunch with Alfredo, and he showed us the best gelateria in La Pienza. Alfredo took us to some of the prettiest locations. There was no shortage of picturesque views. Overall, this was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. If you enjoy photography, I highly recommend spending the day with Alfredo.

I was going to Tuscany because my father was celebration his birthday there. Since I really like to take pictures, I wanted experience the Tuscan landscape and take pictures of it. Since I was not sure if the best spots allowed parking, and was going alone on my photo trip, I decided to look for a guided tour. I googled and asked different people, after some research I ended up with Alfredo, and I am glad I did. Since this was in the middle of July I went for a custom workshop from 11 o clock and till sunset. I had a list of places I wanted to check out, and Alfredo showed me some amazing hidden spots. That you will not find on google. Spending the day with Alfredo was like driving around with a friend who also liked to take pictures. His English was perfect and he knew the area really well. We also had a midday meal at good restaurant he suggested. We saw many great places, and he had some cool facts about the places. He also provided great info about the places if they were sunset, or sunrise locations. I was a little concerned that we had time issues to reach or last stop, where we were going to photograph the sunset, but Alfredo had everything under control, so we arrived in good time. He also came with great photographic tips and suggestions for better compositions. So again if you are looking for a photo guide who speaks good English, are a good photographer, has patience, and are easy to talk with, knows the area, and the best spots and the best times to shoot there Alfredo is you guy! You will not regret it. Since many of the spots where in harsh light I will include the best picture, I took around sunset.

If you looking for a professional photographer who will show you some of the best photography sites in Tuscany and at the same time help you improve your photography skills and provide an enjoyable experience, Alfredo Fava of Tuscany Photography Day is your guy. We did a full day sunrise to sunset photo sessions with Alfredo and it was one of the highest points of our 6 week trip to Italy. Alfredo is a highly competent working professional photographer. He is highly personable and fun to work with. He knows the region very well and took us to places we never would have experienced otherwise. He picked us up at our hotel at sunrise. He knew which locations would work best with the atmospheric conditions present. We came away with some amazing images that we will cherish for years to come. When we go back to Tuscany, we certainly plan to repeat our experience with Alfredo. You will walk away with some amazing images and, at the same time, walk away a better photographer.

First, I would like to say a "BIG THANK YOU" to Alfredo for providing such an amazing experience with great learning and knowledge sharing in photography workshop that really helped me in enhancing my skills and thought process which we carry while going for shoot. We traveled to many rare locations to capture the great scenes and landscape and he made sure we both are well equiped to proceed over there. He was really kind and helpful not just in photo workshope but also, where I needed his advise and help during my stay in Chianciano. At the end, I would just like to add that if you are really looking for landscape photography in Tuscany, then Alfredo is the best person to go with and capture the memorable experience.

Thank you so much Rijul! It was great having you here. Even though it was January we found some great spots and you did very well in photographing them! I am very happy you found the workshops useful and helping you while here it's been a pleasure. If I can I love to help people coming from outside. Look forward to seeing more of your great pics on the social media! My very best wishes to you and hopefully our path will cross again soon, Alfredo

I came across Alfredo's information at a gelateria in Pienza and emailed him for a sunrise session at the last minute. He could not have been more accommodating. Not only did he rearrange his schedule so he could do the workshop, he came to our villa to pick me up (and drop me off). I also had time constraints, so he put together a special itinerary to fit my needs. I've taken photography workshops before, but I learned so much from Alfredo. He gave technical as well as artistic and compositional points, and he was equally instructive in both landscape and street photography. He is patient, knowledgeable, and has a sense of humor. My only regret was that I wish I'd taken his workshop at the beginning of my trip—he had so many tips for places to visit, I wish I had more time to take advantage of them. I definitely can't wait to return and learn more from him.
