A place to be MERRY . . . Italy

Beautiful cypress-lined road in the light of the setting sun

Give the gift of a unique travel experience to photograph the artistic wonders and culture of Italy, October 2-13, 2018. I will take you to favorite locations in Florence, off the beaten path hill towns of Tuscany, and the colorful canals of Venice. There are interesting aspects of Italian life waiting to explore at every turn. This tour is limited to only 12 participants to allow for a more intimate and rewarding experience. We always welcome tour companions who are not photographers. Whether you are an emerging photographer or seasoned shooter, I will be there every step of the way to encourage, guide, and inspire you to capture artful images in this enchanted region of Italy.

Give as a gift or spoil yourself, and embark on a memorable Strabo photographic tour adventure! Find more info here: Enchanted Italy

IT’S A GO FOR CUBA! — Ziegler Photo Tour

Update on my Strabo Photo Tour to Cuba on March 9-18, 2018

“Cuba has been fighting their way back from Irma. Those areas severely hit should be back in full force by December 1. Any areas included on our tours are already operational, WITHOUT ANY CHANGES TO THE PROGRAMS. The Cuban people benefit tremendously from US & Canadian Tourism. PHOTOGRAPHERS: We encourage you to travel now before there are further changes made by the many cruise ships and further development.” ~ Strabo Photo Tours
