Profundo Journeys Photography Workshop
in the South of Italy and the Amalfi Coast
The September 2009 photography workshop to the South of Italy was a resounding success, and paved the way for may subsequent journeys. With a full group of 12 students and a full time travel advisor, we traveled into parts of the country that few other trips ventured to. Our base for the first five days was Santa Maria di Castellabate, a fishing town with it's own 13th century protective castle. from here, we made day trips to Paestum, Velia, Acciaroli and to Castellabate, the castle of the abbott. Our trip continued to Matera, the city of Rock, San Mauro, a small authentic hill town, and finally to the Amalfi Coast, where we stayed in Minori. We photographed day and night, had slide shows sharing our images and instructional critique.
Many of that first group has traveled with us again, some sharing up to six trips abroad and in the US. It was here that the Profundo philosophy of taking people on trips we would like to have gone on, and treating our participants like we would like to be treated on a workshop was first practiced and exists to this day.
