Bend, OR (January 7, 2008) – Kubota Image Tools is pleased to announce its return to Italy for its 4th creative photography workshop for professional and advanced amateur photographers. This 7-day photography workshop (October 5-11, 2008) includes several exciting photo excursions, classroom instruction, photography critiquing and more.
This year’s workshop attendees will tour Southern Italy. Highlights include excursions to the breath-taking Amalfi Coast, the ruins of Pompeii, as well as visits to some of the oldest and most picturesque towns in the world.
“My wife Clare and I are so thrilled to return for our fourth creative photography workshop in Italy – one of the most beautiful countries on Earth,” said Kevin Kubota, Idea Man of Kubota Image Tools. “There's nothing like a trip to Italy to inspire you—and your photography. It really is a life changing experience.”
For photographers who have never had the opportunity to travel to Italy, this is the perfect way to experience it and photograph it. For those photographers that have been to Italy before, then they already know why they want to go back. This time husband and wife team Kevin and Clare Kubota will share some of the undiscovered gems of this beautiful country that they know so well.
Daily photo excursions will include escorted trips to:
· The island of Capri
· Amalfi Coast
· Adriatic Coast
· National Park of Abruzzo
There will be brief daily classroom time (1-2 hours) to discuss photo projects that will be assigned, talks about creativity followed by creative exercises, and the opportunity for participants to apply fine art Photoshop skills on their images. Class size is limited to 20 participants.
The cost of the 7-day trip is $2,995 for class attendees and $2,550 for non-class participants. Single participants will be partnered in gender specific rooms unless requesting a private room for an additional $300. (Actual costs are based on currency exchange rates and are subject to change.)
Partners will be able to join attendees for all of the group outings except the classroom time. The price includes lodging, all ground transportation (attendees are responsible for airfare to and from Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci international airport), 8 meals, guided tours, classroom instruction, photography review and a DVD of the class images and experience.
The tour is organized and guided by native Italians, Max and Cristiana, who live in Umbria and have an incredible zest for sharing their culture and a unique insight into what the essence of Italy really is. This is not a typical tourist trip. It’s a photographic and cultural adventure! See the Kubota Image Tools Web site for up-to-the-minute details: www.kubotaimagetools.com or call 877-330-4330.
