I’m a Venice based freelance photographer, educator, musician, and a spirited adventurer and CEO of Dolomites Photography Workshops. I started exploring the photography medium by capturing images of fellow musicians, their families, and other friends and acquaintances in the music industry. As I continued honing my craft, I merged my love for photography and exploring the outdoors, enabling me to amass lots of photographic work of delightful scenery, rugged mountain scapes, and exhilarating terrain.

The Most Epic Artic Landscapes
ICELAND HIGHLANDS IN SUMMER 2021
In a country of truly amazing landscapes the Icelandic highlands offer perhaps the most incredible scenery of all. The vast interior of this beautiful country has some of the most diverse and jaw-dropping landscapes imaginable. Surrounded by glaciers, this is an area of black sand deserts, volcanic peaks and mountains of every colour imaginable, from the vivid green moss covered hills of the Hvanngil and Mælifellssandur, to the deep oranges and red rhyolite valleys of Landmannalaugar and Kerlingarfjöll.
Crater lakes like Langisjór and Hnausapollur, lava fields and waterfalls, landscapes that change every few kilometres, there is simply so much to see in the highlands and yet despite all this it’s relative inaccessibility means it is far less visited than many of the well known locations around the country. The few roads that do exist are dirt tracks, often with multiple river crossings, which can only be traversed with a sturdy 4×4, and accommodation is limited.

LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS
I launch new workshops throughout the year, usually about 11 months in advance, so if you’re interested in joining me on a workshop to improve your photography in some stunning places, you can get full details as soon as these workshops are launched by subscribing to my newsletter or contacting me via the form.
I love teaching photography, and my YouTube channel is where I share my knowledge to help other photographers to improve their skills. Every couple of weeks I publish a new video with specific topics like: how to improve photo editing, composition, and optimize the workflow on the field.
I use Fujifilm cameras, and I also really enjoy reviewing cameras and lenses. I find very useful to share our opinions as photographers on what we use. If you’re on YouTube, stop by and say Hi!

Un interessante articolo firmato dalla blogger Sabrina Tosato aka The Tomato Soup che avevo piacere di condividere con voi. Si chiama Starlight Room 360° e si trova a Cima Gallina, all’interno dell’area Lagazuoi, Giau, 5 Torri, in uno dei paesaggi montani meglio custoditi al Mondo. Una camera con vista, da dove poter ammirare una successione di vette spettacolari di incomparabile bellezza, dal tramonto all’alba per una notte stellata nelle Dolomiti senza eguali.
I can’t thank Andrea and Andy enough for my experience in the Dolomites. The whole trip went seamlessly from start to finish, and their experience of the area meant there was never a wasted opportunity. As a result of this workshop, I have a better understanding of my own creative style, and I can continue to work on it in future thanks to the input, knowledge and guidance of two excellent workshop leaders. It was everything I could have asked for. Very happy.
Andrea and Andy are professional teachers in addition to being professional photographers. They share their knowledge skillfully and appropriately, whether in the field capturing images or in the classroom processing them. My field work improved dramatically due to the advice I received from the instructors. Andy and Andrea helped me remember to focus on composition, exposure and focus when capturing images; to pre- visualize what data the post-processing tools would need in order to convey the mood of the setting and my reactions to it. A month later and I can still feel the exhilaration of standing high up in the cool air with the peaks all around. I have many keepers, a better skill set, and the intention to one day do another workshop with Andy and Andrea.
What an adventure exploring the stunning Dolomites with Andy and Andrea! Our workshop was packed with jaw-dropping locations throughout the week. The small group format created a great opportunity to make new friends and provided ample time for our expert guides to provide plenty of individual hands-on time. After spending the week with them, I feel like I’ve taken my photography to a whole new level. Andy and Andrea treated us to an unforgettable photography experience I’ll never forget!
The workshop in the Dolomites was an experience I’ll never forget. The workshop consisted of great food, great accommodations and of course stunning vista after stunning vista. Andy and Andrea build not only an atmosphere conducive to learning, but also building camaraderie between other workshop participants. Their friendly and open attitude, in addition to the optimal group size, lended itself to a very personal and productive experience. They help you see an image all the way through from the field to the digital processing. I can also say Andrea is the best driver in Italy!
Andrea and Andy offers workshops done the right way. Everything is very well planned and executed to put you in the right place at the right time to maximize your photo opportunities. They freely share their considerable knowledge of photography and post processing, working one-on-one with all the participants to get the most out of your images. Andy & Andrea work tirelessly to create a fun and productive adventure. You will not be disappointed.
My first ever photography workshop was with Andy and Andrea in the Dolomites and all I can say is it exceeded my expectations in every conceivable way. Andy and Andrea are seasoned pros who make you feel at ease right from the moment you meet them. Everything was taken care of so we just had to focus on capturing images and enjoying the experience. Their local knowledge meant that no matter the weather conditions we always got to shoot something special. I learnt so much and came away more confident in my photography skills then ever before. I can’t recommend these guys highly enough.
A good workshop starts with preparation and I can say that Andrea and Andy provided us with all we needed with regards to the equipment as well as the clothing we’ll need given the complexity of the changing weather in the mountains. This was a great help. It seems that each day, Andy and Andrea had a back up plan in case something should have gone awry. The mid day Lightroom/Photoshop work was also a great plus. I took away plenty of tips from Andrea who taught me a completely new way to approach my landscape “enhancing”. On a practical level, the hotels were very comfortable, the food was good, and the accomodation and food at Alpe Di Siusi was outstanding. Even if all my photos and my back ups ended up being lost or corrupted, the week spent in the Dolomites would still have been a week well spent. In the end, that is the sign of a good photo workshop.
Andrea and Andy's Lofoten workshop exceeded my every expectation. I booked their workshop with a hope to stretch my creative and technical photography talents, while immersed in epic vistas. In this and so many other ways, it didn't disappoint. I left their workshop with an order of magnitude improvement on my photographic approach — from site selection to composition to creative post-processing. Andy and Andrea's preparation, patience, and dedication to small groups provided ample 1:1 mentorship time over the 6 days. And while you can never predict the weather in any trip you take, Andy and Andrea had a Plan B & C for every shoot. Even with rainy and snowy days, we had those epic vistas to learn in. So while this was my first immersive workshop of any sort, it definitely will not be my last. Nor my last trip with Andy and Andrea. I can't wait to get in to the next photographic adventure with them.
What an adventure! Andy and Andrea provided hands-on expertise, and plenty of smiles, food, laughter, and geekiness to fill a photo book or two. This Iceland workshop stretched my imagination and pushed me to reach a little further in pursuit of my art, and I owe a debt of gratitude to both Andy and Andrea for providing such a comfortable, creative atmosphere to express myself in one of the most spectacular landscapes anywhere!
Andrea and Andy’s Iceland workshop exceeded all my expectations. The small group and high instructor to participant ratio ensured we all had our endless questions answered and received the help needed on location to get great compositions and learn new skills. On days when the weather did not cooperate they were very proactive in adapting plans and locations to make the best of the conditions and light. A workshop with Andy and Andrea is more than just coming away with pleasing images - it’s about great food, great accomodation, wonderful company and conversations, and learning new processing and shooting skills in amazing locations. They both love what they do, and that makes all the difference.
Andrea and Andy were top leaders, the best one could hope for. Philip and I enjoyed their guidance, knowledge and companionship. Both are foremost warm and caring people, whose priority is to make the group happy - flexible, changing schedule according to weather patterns and what the group wanted. We were also lucky to have a great group for the Iceland tour. Would love to join them again.
This was an adventure of a lifetime…the Iceland workshop checked all the boxes. We worked with Andy for the first time in Lisbon. This was our first time working with Andrea. Both men are top professionals. We experimented with ways to improve our compositions; think outside the box and be creative. Our group hiked through iconic landscapes and captured stunning images. The one-on-one post processing sessions were comprehensive giving us new skills to improve our images. Andy and Andrea’s patience and kindness inspired us to be better photographers. We are looking forward to joining them in Tuscany.
I am a very experienced landscape photographer and have participated in a good number of workshops with other leaders. In my experience, Andy and Andrea rank at the very top of all workshop leaders I have encountered. First, they are both terrific guys who know their craft and how to impart knowledge to others. Second, they really know Lofoten and, consequently, got the six participants to the right places at the right times. Third, they were quite skilful at working around the very challenging weather conditions we encountered. Lastly, but importantly, they are great fun to be around. I was able to capture many wonderful images during the workshop and I am looking forward to doing more workshops with Andy and Andrea in the future. Thanks to both of them for a great workshop.
