Meet your private guide in central Venice and set off to explore the city, armed with your camera. Follow your guide on a tailor-made itinerary and see the sights that interest you most as you capture the city on camera. Get to know your camera and learn how to set the aperture, shutter speed and ISO to get the best possible shots, then practice on magnificent landmarks like Rialto Bridge and Saint Mark’s Basilica.

Make the most of your photography lesson as you learn to shoot in a variety of lighting conditions. Experiment with creative camera angles, focal points and composition as you admire the city by daylight. Then, seek out Venice’s most scenic spots to watch the sunset and capture memorable snapshots of the city’s twilight hour. Finally, enjoy an introduction to night photography as you stroll along the Grand Canal and try out techniques like light painting or long exposure light streaking, to capture the illuminated city at its most atmospheric.

After an unforgettable evening, end your tour in central Venice and head back to your hotel with a camera full of memories.

Excellent experience

A professional photographer took me to great places in Venice. He (Mirko) taught me very valuable facts about taking pictures in a city. I learned a lot and I was really inspired of all the experience. Great value of the money.

Treat Yourself to this great tour!

I am not a professional photographer just someone who enjoys taking pictures for a hobby. I learned a lot in the 3 hours to help keeping building my photo skills. Venice is a photographer paradise. The tour will take you to great places to practice.
