Nearly a year ago I had a few mad ideas; rent a castle in Tuscany for a week, gather 24 delegates and their families, pull together four leading tutors who are passionate about picture making and set up the project as a non profit making exercise. The results were astonishing and from the feedback we have received it is clear that ‘life changing’ is an adjective that somehow fits the bill.
Right from the start I wanted Trevor and Faye Yerbury to be part of this project. I first met them in 1998 and I was blown away by their sheer talent, elegance and charm. It was such a personal privilege to have them teaching along side me in Tuscany and it is with great pleasure that I share a selection of their pictures with you. All these shots were taken in natural light at the castle using an 85mm f/1.4 lens on a Nikon D700. Faye, an expert photographer in her own right has post produced the pictures with a precision and attention to detail that brings out the true brilliance of their vision.
Wow, there you have it. Please feel free to comment on these pictures or your experiences on this workshop.
