7 days of wildlife photography workshop immersed in one of the most ancient Italian national park, looking for wildlife with Jonathan Giovannini and Michele Bavassano.
This tour has been planned to explore the wildest areas of central Italy. Between national parks and dense wildlife areas. These are areas where the two professional photographers have been following the movements of the fauna for over 10 years. During this period the appennine chamois is in the middle of the breeding season. During this period the appennine chamois is in the middle of the breeding season. Magical landscapes ans forests enjoyable only in these wild Appennine areas.
Not only chamois; in these locations. In fact, we would also go looking for deer, mouflons and other mammals that live in these areas, such as roe deer, wild boar and the elusive wolf. We will visit different locations that will always give our photos special and unique atmospheres, following all the different settings of the mountains of the central Italian Apennines.
These days promise to be very intense and will keep us busy in the field from dawn right through to sunset. We will form a small group of photographers, in order to minimize disturbance and maximize the photographic possibilities. On field we will talk about base and advanced shooting techniques to obtain creative and special images.
After the sunset and in the central hours of the day, we will talk about your shots and we will deepen your knowledge on post-production software, learning new techniques in order to optimize your shots.
Our purpose is to provide the participants with notions of biology and photography, in order to carry out this fantastic passion in the utmost respect of the nature and with the right skills to make perfect shots in any situation.
It will be an intense and engaging experience that will make you rediscover a completely new wildlife photography!
THE PHOTOGRAPHIC ACTIVITIES:
All photographic activities will be alongside a professional photographer.
No photo session will take place from an hide, everything will be done freely on the territory of the park with stalking and moving to the best areas for sighting animals.
For this, a good physical shape will be required that allows each participant to carry out hike of maximum 10km or 200/400 meters of elevation without problems (A fast walk will not be required, the excursions will take place with a very slow walk)
All camouflage material , such as net or other will be provided by the organizers. You will only need your photographic equipment.
RECOMMENDED PHOTOGRAPHIC EQUIPMENT:
This itinerary offers a great experience from a photographic point of view, therefore any equipment is sufficient to bring home great shots. You can observe animals at all distances, therefore a 70-200mm can already be enough to give satisfaction. Despite this, for portrait lovers, the advice is to bring with you a focal length of at least 300mm. A medium telephoto and a wide angle can be useful if you are interested in photographing Italian landscapes and forests.
