Venice Carnival Photography Workshop

Venice Photography Course Model

Venice is indeed a magical city, full of winding pathways, hidden canals, amazing architecture and a Gondola on almost every corner. Venice is quite simply a photographer’s dream. If that’s not enough, during carnival time there is the bonus of elaborately-costumed characters just waiting to have a lens trained on them. Please scroll down to see dates and prices of this photography course.

Venice has so much to offer the photographer, which is why this photography training course in Venice runs for three full days of photography. During the course there will be ample time to improve your photography photographing well known Venice landmarks as well as many hidden gems such as quiet canals, atmospheric squares, traditional fish and fruit markets, Gondolas and of course the flambouyantly costumed Venetians.

Also included in this photography course is a visit to the island of Burano which is a must for any photographer. Burano is a kaleidoscope of colour; each resident seemingly trying to outdo their neighbours by painting their house in a different shade of vibrant colour. It’s hard to decide what to photograph next!

In keeping with all of my photography courses, each day is split between learning to perfect your skills and knowledge with various photography techniques and developing your photographer’s eye through composition, as well as understanding light and colour.

We will cover all relevant camera controls and menus, plus controlling depth of field, creative use of shutter speed, composition, use of light and colour, creative use of focal length, low light photography, as well as taking some great “people pictures” – better known as street photography.

Included in the cost of this course is all photography tuition as well as four nights accommodation at the four star Tritone Hotel in nearby Mestre, which includes breakfast each morning. Mestre is very near to and has excellent transport links to Venice.

As well as exploring Venice on foot, we will also view Venice by water, giving us two different perspectives of this wonderful city. The waterbus will take us out to the island of Burano with its wonderful photographic potential. Transport from the Hotel to Venice and back is included in the cost of this photography course.

Flights, food and transfers, plus your twleve-hour Waterbus pass are not included in the price of this trip. Students are also required to take out their own travel insurance.

This photography training course in Venice is limited to just six students which means I can tailor the course to each individual regardless of their level of photographic ability. A full set of notes covering all photographic techniques practiced during the course is also supplied to each student.
