Photo Essay : Italy


This May 11-24 I’ll be leading a travel photography tour through Italy with G Adventures. We will be traveling from Venice to Rome visiting many of the highlights of Italy along the way: Florence, Pisa, Cinque Terre, Sienna, Vatican City, Naples, Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast. I’ve previously visited most of the locations on the tour and have had the pleasure to photograph them already. Here is a taste of some of the photos you will be able to come back with if you join me on the tour.

I selected Italy for the 2013 tour because it is a travel photography gold mine. Almost every village and train station has some photogenic quality about it. Not only will you walk away with great image, but I’ll also be working with you one-on-one to help improve your technique.

Sales pitch over. Enjoy the photos!

  1. Stunning pics Gary! I cannot wait to make it to Italy not just to experience a new culture but as you say to take advantage of the photo ops – unfortunately the dates you are heading over there don’t work for me, but I certainly look forward to seeing the wrap up. Be there in spirit :) Happy travels with G Adventures.

    I freaking love Italy. I won’t be back there until Aug…..your awesome photos makes that seems like a lifetime.

  8. Fabulous photos of Italy. I particularly loved the images of Venice, a city I loved despite the foul smell from the canal (at least when I was there, but that was several years ago). I also loved your images of Naples. I was so surprised to see everyone hanging their laundry outside, but now it’s become a visible trademark of the city.

  13. Beautiful shots! We particularly like the one of the Trevi Fountain. You seem to have the right angle for each shot, clearly showing your talent. Are you coming to Thailand in the near future? We’d love to go on a phototour with you in Chiang Mai. :)
