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.
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 the team...
Our guides comes from a wide range of backgrounds, brining with them a diverse skillset to pass on to our trip members. We always use two guides for every trip of four or more participants, ensuring that everyone gets a good amount of personal attention. You’ll be notified of your allocated guides once they have been confirmed.
Marcus - An award winning pro photographer since 2005, Marcus started his career as a travel photographer. He’s visited over 50 countries and lived in a few too. A bit of a purist and a traditionalist, Marcus can often be found with a film camera from last century rather than toting the latest technology around his neck.
James - Coming from a commercial photographic background, James tends to focus on the creative side of things as opposed to the technicalities of his equipment. For James, it’s not so much as how to take an image, but more why to take an image. Or course, he knows the former too, but James will likely have you thinking in new ways.
Ruth - As the host of our popular Photography Online show, Ruth is the team member everyone wants to meet (much to the envy of the others). She’s in her element when photographing “life” - manmade things in their natural state. Faced with the option of shooting a row of bins or mountains, she’s unlikely to head for the hills. It takes all sorts to make the world go round!
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!
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.
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.
