Dolomite Mountains announces photo and video safaris

Hiking in the Dolomites

ABOVE: A summer hike in Italy's photogenic Dolomites.

Dolomite Mountains srl, a tour company based in Livinallongo del Col di Lana, Italy, is offering photo and video safari tours in the summer of 2011.

Photography and Creativity in the Italian Alps: An Artistic Journey into the Heart of the Dolomites is an 8-day/7-night itinerary that runs from June 27 to July 4.

After arriving at Venice Airport, the dozen participants will spend a week walking and working with fine-art photographer Randy Jay Braun and local legend Karin Pizzinini, a multilingual photographer, trail guide, and alpinist. A third instructor will be Julieanne Kost, Adobe's senior digital imaging expert for Lightroom and Photoshop.

Val Gardena, a working farm in the Ladino, high mountain villages, and chairlift rides to displays of alpine flowers are a few of many photo opportunities on the tour.

Dolomite Mountains srl informs us that "The active sunrise-to-sunset itinerary includes regional cuisine, comfortable accommodations, and roundtrip transfers from Venice’s Marco Polo International Airport. The nearly all-inclusive cost per person is €3,480, and guests can book an optional July 4-7 trip extension to Venice."

If you prefer moving pictures to stills, you may want to investigate Videography and Creativity in the Italian Alps: A Visual and Spiritual Journey in the Dolomite Mountains, June 13-23. The cost is €4,650 per person, double (single supplement €540).
