After holding 3 memorable adventures in Sicily in 2016/2017, we decided to make it an annual trip. The dates for 2018 are May 22-27. Come on a one of a kind photographic adventure with me and 3 gorgeous professional models!
Discover the rich and fertile scenery of western Sicily—its pristine beaches and ancient salt pans, its lush orange groves and endless vineyards.
Explore the marbled streets of an ancient village or the mystery of several abandoned islands.
Enjoy the welcoming hospitality of the locals, the exotic flavors of their cuisine, and the laid back atmoshpere which is part of everyday life on this unforgettably enchanting island.
This is not a workshop, this is a photo adventure. Everything is carefully planned yet relaxed, giving you the freedom to open up and be creative, all while enjoying Sicily in the company of like-minded people. It is not only about taking photos of beautiful women in unique settings, it's about exploring the rich culture, tasting exotic flavors, discovering new passions, creating incredible memories and friendships. It's about living that LA DOLCE VITA, as only Italians can.
We will be staying at villa Salinara, which is located in a part of Sicily that is still undiscovered by mass tourism. Its charming edifice was originally built in the late 18th century. More recently, it has been lovingly restored using all local materials and furnished in the traditional Sicilian country style.
All rooms exude a Mediterranean atmosphere, a journey through the colors and sensations of this time-forgotten land. There is a huge variety of sets and photo locations in the villa alone. Salinara is surrounded by nature and culture and is just a few steps from the sea.
Besides our beautiful villa with its amazing interiors and lush garden that we will use for our shoots, everyday you will be taken to one of many unique locations, a majority of which are secluded. The gorgeous Favignana with its turquoise waters, the ancient perfectly preserved Sicilian village carved in a mountain, the medieval castle overlooking the entire island, abandoned salt mines and pink crystal lakes, just to name a few.
Our photographers to model ratio is very low, 2 to 1 or less, providing the opportunity to work privately. We are bringing various wardrobe for our models, available upon request, to create the look you want, anywhere from Sicilian donna, ala Monica Belucci or Sophia Loren, to ancient goddess, to phantasmagoric mermaid.

Farm fresh breakfasts with options for every taste, light but satisfying lunches and delectable 3 course dinners will be prepared and served by our Sicilian chef at the villa. Enjoy the exotic flavors of traditional cuisine accompanied by exquisite local wine, that here in Sicily indeed flows. Snacks and seasonal fruit will also be provided throughout the day. Please notify us in advance if you have any dietary restrictions.
We provide transportation from the Trapani airport to the villa and back. Transfer from Palermo airport is possible for additional fee. Transportation to and from the shooting locations is covered as well. You will not need a rental car, unless you want to explore more by yourself during and after your stay. There are several bikes at the villa that you can use on your free time if you wish.
