Two interesting weeks in Venice

  The last two weeks in Venice have been quite interesting and challenging!  With photographer colleagues Giulia Candussi and Guillem Lopez  we decided to cover or at least to TRY to cover most of the events on the Venice calendar for this busy period, we opted to use our collective name XianPix and submit the images to Corbis. We were able to send the images super fast and have then live and ready to syndicate in  matter of seconds.

With just one day to go...I would like to thank all the Processors and Editors at Corbis for making this possible and in particular my amazing Editors Jenna and Steffen...without  their help, support, patience and understanding would  have not been possible!I also would like to thank Mike at Corbis Contributors for listening patiently to my daily moaning! ... at the end the photographer  "click" is just a small part of an incredible team work and humans resource effort!

We managed to cover quite a lot of events......for sure not all of them...but a good number...from the Biennale Architecture to the Film Festival, from the Campiello Prize to the opening of Palazzo Grassi ..and to include a few features and parties as well , We could have done more and for sure better...but it has been a very important lesson.
