Professional British photographer Patrick Richmond Nicholas organizes photography workshops and guided private tours as Camera Etrusca in central Italy. Based in Orvieto, he goes off the beaten track into the surrounding countryside of Tuscany and Umbria by Land Rover to places you would never discover on your own. He also does walking tours round the back streets of Orvieto, private tours and photo workshops in Rome and Tivoli. Patrick knows all the areas surrounding Orvieto, including Rome, intimately, and will share his knowledge with you as well as his experience of teaching photography, at all levels. Half day and whole day tours. Patrick has lived in Italy for 25 years, speaks Italian fluently and can guide you with or without a camera, around the Tuscan and Umbrian towns and hamlets - indeed better than most of the locals! His other passion, beside photography, is the history of the area, from the Etruscans of three thousand years ago through the Renaissance to the recent past and he’s happy to enlighten others. If you want to learn about this fascinating corner of Italy, include him in your travel plans.

We, two grandparents and a eager-to-learn 16 year old granddaughter, spent six wonderful days in Orvieto with Patrick Nicholas in September 2011. (Imagine being 16 and in Italy for the first time.)
