Venice is undoubtably one of the world’s most beautiful cities, and somewhere where everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime.
With an abundance of amazing architecture, canal and street scenes, this renaissance city is especially attractive to photographers as there are really no limits to the possible compositions on offer.
“You certainly know your way around the city like a born and bred Venetian and showed me a whole new side to the city which I had visited before”Sheryl
We stay right in the heart of the San Marco area which gives the perfect access to the major areas you will want to photograph such as Piazza San Marco, Rialto, and the Grand Canal from Accademia.
Our trip isn’t just about shooting the classic scenes though, as we spend time in some of the lesser known spots and also visit a couple of other nearby islands.
Meet your hosts…
Marcus and James have been working together for over 20 years, and have travelled all over the world on photo trips and assignments.
Marcus lived in Venice for 6 months so knows his way around the city without getting lost, and can lead the group to some of the lesser known locations which are great for photography. James has hosted our photo holidays in St. Kilda, China, and Yellowstone. Marcus’ and James’ Italian work can be found on the walls of over 600 Caffe Nero stores in the UK – something which has taken them to Venice on commercial shoots many times.
“I’m so glad I did this trip with you guys as it far exceeded my high expectations. Thanks for your patience with my mental block about exposure. The penny finally dropped!” – Nigel
“You went far beyond what I expected in this trip. The gondola ride and the local restaurants had nothing to do with photography, but added to the overall experience of the trip for me.” – Helen
“This was one of the best weekends I’ve ever had. I learnt so much at the same time as having such great fun. Please don’t stop doing things the way you do them” – Carla
