Tuscany landscapes are iconic and divers, synonymous with good life and pleasure. This is the place, where nature has been generous and where in turn it has been respected. This is a region, that lacks nothing, when it comes to views. Found in the heart of Italy, this is a land where time stands still, with its silvery olive groves, fields with sunflowers and puppies, stone farms and ancient medieval castles, this is the place, where we had incredible photo expedition with Pavel Oskin which you will never forget!

Iceland. Rough country. Quick 10-15 degree change is a common thing. Sounds scary, right? Especially if you are camping. Can you handle it? Yes you can, because there is an experienced person taking care of you. His name is Pavel Oskin. The only guy I personally know who can manage your trip in a way that you are pretty comfortable and more importantly safe in such unfriendly conditions. He will take you to places where regular tourists would never get to. In his van we traveled through the entire island from beautiful mountains to glaciers going off roads and crossing small fast rivers. I have traveled a lot but the trip to Iceland with Pavel was probably the most exciting and memorable of them all. Thank you! And hopefully I will join you to travel to other places in the near future.

From the first moment I met Pavel Oskin I felt like I would have an interesting tour and a good time. Pavel’s incredible knowledge of special places in Tuscany, its history and its beauty along with his love of photography were overwhelming. For those seven days, Pavel not just brought us to the incredible beautiful places, but he showed me how to pay attention to the details of composing a better shot and as a result I returned from Italy with excellent beautiful pictures! His knowledge of Italian language and communication with locals also help to make this tour more enjoyable. I will be looking forward to my future tours with Pavel and highly recommend him and his tours to everybody who loves photography!

It is such a pleasure to share some of my greatest memories about my recent trip to Tuscany, from May 2018. Italy is always an endless excitement, traveling in a great company makes it priceless! And being on a trip with with Pavel made this whole experience simply unforgettable. Every detail of this journey was at its best and very well organised and thought through. What else had made this whole journey unique is Pavel’s charisma and his incomparable personality: his passion to photography multiplied to his love to Italy, it’s beauty, traditions, culture and people, his ability to unite a group of people from different countries and cultures into friends and soulmates! I am so grateful to Pavel for making this tour into such an amazing experience, for making me fall in love into Tuscany and wanting to come back and join Pavel on his other photo-journeys.

One of the best trips of my life was with Pavel on Iceland photo tour. During artic summer there is virtually no night so it’s always photography time. With Pavel’s teachings I could shoot amazing pictures and my skills improved considerably. The food and drinking experience is memorable. Every day we had a variety of meat, fish and vegetables cooked in all sorts of international fashions. I dream to go again to this beautiful country and, with Pavel’s help, shoot all the pictures I missed on the previous trip. Would I recommend traveling to Iceland with Pavel? Of course!

A super 10-days photo tour exploring Sicily. This was our first visit to Sicily and second tour with Pavel Oskin, and it was wonderful experience. And we are planning to take more and more. The itinerary was a great mix- awe-inspiring photo scenic sites, all presented in context with details of their long stories, some truly superb views at the different time of the day, and some more day-to-day visits of Aeolian Islands such as Lipari , Volcano, Salina, Stromboli, all drawn together to provide a fascinating mosaic of Sicily. We really liked the personal touches Pavel arranged for us to photograph Sicily and volcanoes views he knew from prior trips. Pavel was attentive to a real variety of personalities and very gracious. Pavel Oskin is an excellent experience photographer and provider who takes small groups on photo expeditions, and also looks to ensure that you enjoy a place as much as possible: you always stay in places with character, and eat the finest of local foods. We were enjoying traveling with Pavel because of the strong relationships that he has developed with people over the years. This provides unique opportunities to photograph people and places that you wouldn’t ordinarily be able to. We travel with Pavel because we know that we will experience cultures in a way that we would never be able to on my own. We visited good restaurants, where we were guided; encouraged to sample local specialties. There was free time for us to see some essential sites independently, and there was guidance on how to use the free time we had. All in all a great 10 days! Pavel, Thank you for a wonderful trip that exceeded our expectations. Every event we attended was photographically superb. You can be sure we’ll sing praises of this tour and recommend you to all our photographer friends.
