Is the Italy of your dreams filled with mountain top villages capped with medieval towers? If so, then the region you want is Umbria. Tucked between Florence and Rome, Umbria is just off the tourist’s path, which means you can photograph Italian culture without the tour buses that flood other cities. It is authentic Italy and there is so much to explore.
The first Umbria workshop went through the towns of Orvieto and Perugia where we were treated to artisans like the legendary weaver Marta Brozzetti and stained glass works of Studio Moretti Caselli. For 2018, we will continue to search for the most unique architecture and hilltop towns that inspired artists like M.C. Escher and Piero della Francesca. The full itinerary will be revealed after sign up. (I discovered that other workshops were trying to copy my method of bringing you into specific artisan’s workshops. Shhh… let’s keep the secret between you and me.)
The workshops are all limited in size; six to eight people maximum. A good workshop should feel like an intimate dinner party, which is why I encourage people to sign up early because the workshops sell out.
Like a grande hotel from a Wes Anderson film, Hotel Palace Brufani will be our home base. Their polished espresso machines and tufted bar room are perfect for quiet design lectures or editing sessions. Because who does not like a well made cocktail to go along with their picture review? You can book a room at the Hotel Palace Brufani or at a nearby hotel, as the cost of lodging is not covered in the workshop cost.
Workshop enrollment covers all workshop activities, location shooting fees, model fees, intercity transportation, a summary of workshop material/resources, and use of workshop meeting spaces.
Transportation, food, and lodging are at the discretion of the photographer. They are not included in the workshop cost, but if you need help with hotel suggestions please email us.
If this is your first A\Marelli Workshop, you may have some questions or concerns. This is why I offer a complimentary 30-minute private call with each first time workshop participant. After you register for the workshop, we’ll get in touch with you to set up your session via Skype.
Each workshop requires a 50% non-refundable deposit. Final payment is due 90 days prior to the commencement of the workshop.
After the non-refundable deposit is accepted, if you need to cancel or postpone enrollment in a workshop, you may transfer the deposit to another available workshop anytime within the next calendar year. (eg, If you enrolled for a 2018 May workshop and are unable to attend, you can apply it any other workshop up to the end of May 2019)
If you have made full payment and need to cancel prior to 90 days before the start of the workshop, you will be refunded the second payment amount.
If you need to cancel inside of 90 days from the workshop commencement, there is no refund, but you can transfer the entire amount to a later workshop up to one calendar year from the original workshop start date.
