Photography Tour Overview:
Italy's most photogenic city by far is nothing less than a living museum. Perched on a bed of ancient logs and 118 islands in the middle of a lagoon, Venice is slowly ‘changing shape' and creating fresh photographic opportunities as each day passes. It is colorful, pastel, moody, ancient, and vibrant with many moments of tranquil photographic bliss just waiting to be explored both from behind the scenes, to the wonderfully obvious! Point your camera at Rialto Bridge, Piazza San Marco, colorful Burano Island, the myriad of character-laden streets, alleys, bridges and Gondolas, plus San Giorgio at sunset. As with all of our photography tours, early and late shooting is scheduled for each day.


Our itinerary . . .
But first things first! We suggest that you set your camera's clock to the local time, as your images will then synchronize with the times in our included photo tour field notes.


Days 1, 2, 3 + 4  |  Venice, Italy
We'll gather at our hotel at 3:30 pm, and after a photography session near our hotel we'll take dinner canal-side. Then photography stops in view of the warm sun-bathed San Giorgio Island which will include a variety of Gondolas passing by.
Days 2, 3 and 4 will be filled with guided photographic sessions on foot, plus solo sessions for those that want them. Each day will start at dawn followed by breakfast, then more photography before a midday siesta. Among the iconic locations we will photograph thoroughly are Piazza San Marco, Rialto Bridge, the San Giorgio Island scene both early and late, plus an excursion to the lace making island of Burano which is a small fishing village with a 'thoroughfare' of lace shops, and houses painted in bright colors. You'll love the reflections. Join us and walk in the footsteps of Venetian greats such as Canaletto and Vivaldi, but also be ethereally inspired to produce your own visions of Venice . . . and we'll 'prod' you to new creative heights too. The included dinner on the last night of our photography tour will feature an 'It's You!' presentation of clients in action on this tour by John.
Venice, 4 nights


Day 5  |  Departure day
Dawn at the water's edge once more with San Giorgio in view. Important: Departing flights should be arranged for after 12 noon.
