Join husband and wife photographer/authors Frank Van Riper (NF, '79) and Judith Goodman for low-key, molto simpatico photo workshops in Italy and coastal Maine. July and August in Lubec, Me.; October in Umbria; January in Venice.
Week-long workshops have NO entrance requirements and are geared to the serious amateur and semi-professional shooter seeking a no-pressure environment in a beautiful setting to expand his/her skills. Small workshop size assures individual attention.
Lubec workshops partner with the internationally famed SummerKeys Music Workshops and are based in the easternmost town in the United States, a lovely former fishing village that is worlds apart from the madding noise of Kennebunkport or Bar Harbor.
Fall in Umbria may be the best time of the year to experience what has been called "Tuscany without the tourists." We have exclusive use of a totally restored 18th-century Umbrian farm villa (complete with staff) and we tour the region's glorious hill towns and cities by private van and driver.
Venice--the site of our internationally bestselling book, Serenissima: Venice in Winter--is wonderful in winter, especially after Christmas and before Carnevale, when (most) of the tourists have left and it becomes, if briefly, a living breathing--and astoundingly beautiful--city.
