See Venice through a new lens on a guided photo walk.

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 have no interest in photography at all or you're an experienced photographer or just getting into the hobby and 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.

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