La Serenissima - Venice Photography Tour 2018

We've been planning this photography trip in our heads for a few years now, and are extremely excited to finally be able to announce an October 2018 excursion to the wonderful city of Venice.

Over the past few years, the Rialto Bridge has been undergoing maintenance, meaning that the iconic viewpoints along the Grand Canal have been somewhat obscured by scaffolding. With maintenance now complete, this is the perfect time to join us for a photography trip that is sure to provide a host of fabulous, creative opportunities.

Venice, nicknamed La Serenissima meaning The Serene, is an enchanting, unique city unlike no other place on the planet. With it's vast canals, patch work of maze like streets and unforgettably romantic ambience, we will experience potential photographic moments at every turn.

Our central hotel in the Cannaregio District gives us unrivalled access to the city, meaning that we can make the most of the early morning light, while the tourists sleep and the water is calm. The Rialto Bridge is only minutes away on foot, with the most inspiring photography viewpoints all within walking distance.

Imagine waking up before dawn to go for a walk with your camera, to watch the sunrise over the Adriatic from one of the most awe inspiring locations on Earth.

While the rest of the world sleeps, you will be enjoying a moment of pure bliss, aiming to capture the scene and the emotion on your camera, before the city awakens and the new day begins.

Naturally, a city submerged in water will give us a huge range of interest at any time of day, with long exposure photography, street photography and architectural images certain to come into play. Venice offers the scope for wow factor photographs beyond the usual "golden" hours of sunrise and sunset.

And then there's night...... the city takes on a whole new character, illuminated by artificial lights reflecting in the Canals.

Cannaregio is a traditionally Venetian area of the city, unspoilt by tourism and with an authentic charm. Our base in this area will provide fast access to the classic viewpoints, along with a real insight into everyday life in Venice.

See this article from the Guardian for more info on Cannaregio

Our quaint, 3 star hotel accommodation is of good quality, full of character and with good reviews. Although the rooms are fairly basic, they are certainly more than adequate for our needs. Accommodation is on a Bed and Breakfast basis. Set in a traditional Venetian square, we are close to the heart of the city and can fully immerse ourselves in the lifestyle of local residents.

During October, we will enjoy  a relatively low sun, casting longer shadows and giving a more dramatic light than in the Summer months. While the city is always busy, we will not have to fight our way through the Summer tourists at this time of year.

A full itinerary will be released to attendees in advance of the trip. A relaxed atmosphere is encouraged throughout our foreign trips and early mornings/late nights are optional. Non photographers (partners) are very welcome to join us to enjoy everything that this wonderful location has to offer. You are free to drop in and out of photography sessions as you wish, giving you plenty of opportunity to explore the city at your own pace....or to fully immerse yourself in the photography. It's completely up to you and a relaxed attitude between the group is always encouraged.

We have experience of running successful trips to foreign shores, so you can be confident of an enjoyable, organised and fulfilling time.

"I thoroughly enjoyed my first photography holiday to Budapest with Yarm Studio. It was a beautiful city with plenty of opportunities to take some fabulous photos. Having Michael and Scott on hand to help you create that perfect photo and give you advice was so valuable. It was a great group of people and a fantastic experience. Thank you." - K. Barnes, Budapest Trip 2017
