Venice, without doubt is a paradise for photographers. A city of canals, bridges, narrow streets and buildings so beautiful they have to be seen to be believed.
Founded 1600 years ago the city grew from a small settlement built on islands of silt in a mosquito infested marsh to one of the most potent cities in the world during the middle ages. Today its churches, music, winding alleyways and artworks thrill the adoring visitors; subjects for photography lie in every direction. Nowhere else is to be found such a combination of architectural styles and influences; you will be able to create a portfolio of images to treasure forever. Venice is however a complex city with countless alleyways and over 400 bridges; even the local residents have to use maps at times!
Discover the city, capture its beauty and hone your photographic skills with a photographer who will generously share his love and knowledge of the city with you and who has been there and photographed it many times. Our workshop will include iconic locations as well as those which are easily missed or well hidden. During our time there we will maximise the time photographing and minimise the time spent navigating, travelling or queuing.
For many, the defining images of Venice are long exposures in both mono and colour. This technique will be thoroughly explored during the week. At this time of year the weather is generally becoming warmer, the city less crowded than the summer and always there is the possibility of mist to add that wonderfully ethereal feel to photographs .
Many of the classic locations become more challenging once the visitors arrive later in the day so our trip will include some dawn starts which will capture the true essence of this beautiful place. There will be also be opportunities for night photography and some time for you own individual exploration. We will be based in the San Marco area and will explore the area bounded by the Rialto Bridge, The Zattere, and the Arsenale. We will walk everywhere so comfortable shoes will be needed.
