“I’ve found photography has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them”
(Elliot Erwitt)


Through the photography courses in Florence at Istituto Galilei students will explore the visual language of photography and deepen their techniques with Florence as both scenery and inspiration.

photography courses florenceDuring our photography courses in Florence an introduction to shooting and post-production is given in class, then the course will move and take place mostly outdoors in order to let you learn by shooting.

Combining technique and creativity, our photography course in Florence will allow you to study topics like exposure and time while exploring photographic narration subjects as dynamic shots, portraits, landscape and street photography.

Our photography courses are open to everybody, the only requirements are a reflex or a compact camera (with the possibility to set manual shooting controls) and a true disposition to enhance your photography skills through the guide of one of our professional teachers.


The program will allow the student to achieve basic notions on photographic techniques, composition and post-production. Classes will take place largely outdoors, through practical shooting on the field, while just a small time will be spent in the classroom.

Combined option

Since large part of the lessons takes place directly “on site”, so as to give an opportunity for our students to practice “capturing” the most beautiful and artistic city, this course can also be combined with some lessons of Art History or History of Florence. In this way, participants will be able to totally immerse themselves in the magical atmosphere of a city that has many secrets and anecdotes to reveal.
