Venice Original Photo Walk and Tour

 

We are a small group of photo reporters and photographers based in Venice and directly we offer photo walks and photography workshops in Venice.

See Venice through a new lens on a guided photo walk.  Our  years of history with this unforgettable city have taught us all the hidden secrets and stunning sights that lie along the calli and bridges outside of the typical tourist routes. You will even see the most famous landmarks in a new light as we guide you to the best vantage points and show you subtle details that only a Venetian would know.

Whether you're an experienced photographer or just getting into the hobby, no matter if you have a professional camera, a camera phone  we can help you take the photographs of a lifetime. As we walk through the streets of Venice, we will discuss which settings and lenses to use, how to frame and compose various images, and how to use lighting to create a dramatic work of art.

 

Is a VENICE Photo Walk or A Photography Workshop Right For You?

We have an extensive experience with Professional Film and Digital DSLRs from Canon to Nikon, from Leica to Fujifilm or Sony!

Both options include a free 10-minute introduction to set up your equipment and discuss your goals.

Photo walks of 2 or 3 hours are an accessible, fun way to see Venice up close. We will guide you to the famous landmarks, but also help you navigate the more hidden parts of the city to truly experience its character. We will focus on using your photos to tell a story and create an atmosphere that captures the essence of your visit.

Photography workshops of 4 or 6 hours provide the same personal experience of Venice, but with a more intense focus on improving your photography skills. In addition to providing customized instruction and guidance on the technical aspects of photography, we will discuss and critique your images in the field and go over your portfolio to identify your strengths and weaknesses. Some photography workshops include digital darkroom and development instruction using Adobe Photoshop and Nik Software plug-ins.
