The Tuscany photo tour with Iurie Belegurschi and Daniel Kordan was superb in every way. Villa Gaia provided a perfect home base from which to be perfectly positioned for iconic sunrise and sunset photos, and the day tours of the Etruscan villages were amazing. We were able to avoid the tourist traffic and be in perfect position for some of the best landscape photography of my life. Beyond setting us up the for the most glorious Tuscany landscapes, both Iurie and Daniel are master photography post-processors and the daytime classes in Lightroom and Photoshop added numerous techniques to my post processing knowledge and skill set. These young men are artists. They are accomplished in their own right at such a young age it is difficult to comprehend. On top of that all of the logistics were well organized and every day went without a hitch. Finally the meals at Villa Gaia were like eating in a different 5 star Parisian restaurant every day. Not exaggerating chef and Villa Director Yuri put on a masterful dining experience every night and without any exaggeration this was the best week of dining I have ever in my life experienced.
“Very happy to have joined another wonderful photo workshop led by Iurie and Daniel. Apart from good food and wine, I loved the scenery of Tuscany. It’s so traquil, unique and beautiful. I have also learnt a lot about composition and digital processing techniques for landscape photography from this workshop. I enjoyed the whole trip very much and thank Iurie and Daniel did a brilliant job.”
I had the pleasure of going to Cinque Terre and Tuscany with Iurie and Daniel Korzhonov in November, 2015. I have done many photo trips over the past 10 years and rate this one at or near the top. Iurie and Danielle were extremely knowledgeable and went out of their way to share tips and ideas on how to improve my skills. I will definitely use Iceland Photo Tours again and highly recommend them for all photographers no matter what skill level they are at.
Thank you Iurie and Danielle,
Daniel Korzhonov aka Daniel Kordan introduced us to night time photography which I thought was brilliant. We would shoot one village at day light and another at dusk. I enjoyed it so much because I had never done it as an assignment. Daniel Korzhonov’s processing of his images at dusk was top notch and highly creative. This shot is my very first attempt. Thank you Daniel Korzhonov for making our photo tour so much fun.
