With it’s beautiful canals, stunning palaces, romantic gondolas and ancient hidden alleys, Venice is begging to be photographed. It’s a city of unparalleled beauty and one of my favorite places on Earth. This 5 day, 5 night tour and photography workshop will be guided by Spike along with international photography instructor Marc De Tollenaere. Marc is a distinguished Leica Ambassador and licensed tour leader in Venice, where he has lived for over 20 years.
We will visit all of the classic locations and you’ll be taught how to perfectly photograph each scene. But we will also dig deeper into the hidden corners and shadowed courtyards where the real heart of Venice beats. You will come home with an extraordinary collection of images and you’ll learn new techniques that will last a lifetime.
With a group size of 4 to 8 people maximum, you’ll get personal attention to ensure you are comfortable with your camera and always getting the shot! This Venice photography workshop focuses on detailed personal instruction to get you more comfortable with your camera. It’s for any skill level but we focus on amateurs and hobbyists who want to learn more about their camera and how to use the settings to get off the “automatic” setting. Any camera is welcome – even just an iPhone! You’ll learn a few new tricks no matter what you’re shooting with. You’ll learn about composition, long exposures, using filters, night photography, documentary storytelling, high contrast black & white, raw “street life” photography and much more.
And it’s not JUST photography: we planned a tour that allows you to experience and enjoy Venice! We won’t spend the whole time behind cameras… our group will visit great restaurants, learn about historic sites, and of course, sample the incredible food and wine. You’ll enjoy the slow food experience known as “Cicchetti” as we walk the winding alleys to some of my favorite spots!
This trip is perfect for solo travelers, couples, family and friends. (In fact, two people save $ by sharing a room!) For a photographer, Venice is one big adventure. You’ll never forget your time in Venice with Spike and Marc!
