Marco Ryan review of Camera Etrusca Workshops and Master Classes in nude photography in Italy.
“I was very fortunate to spend a week with professional photographer, Patrick Nicholas, who runs Camera Etrusca in Orvieto, Italy. Patrick has been a professional photographer for most of his working life and has been based in Italy for the last 25 years or so. Patrick brings an encyclopedic knowledge of Etruscan history, insights and stories that bring the landscape alive, ad help you to see the extraordinary in the ordinary.”“As a photographer what this helps you to do is to stop and listen. Patrick’s wonderfully laconic and easy going style are the perfect complement to the landscape. He encourages you to look. No, really look. To stop, to listen not just with your ears but to listen with your eyes…and if you think this is hyperbole think about how lovers pick up every change, every innuendo without a word being said. You begin to see the change in light; to feel the history. It is absorbing and you can’t help but let it impact the pictures you take.”
