Standing on the Adriatic Sea, Venice seems to rise naturally from the water and this characteristic is part of its charm. To capture in a shot the impressive reflections on the canals of Venice and the movements on the surface of the waters, come with us along this water in Venice photo tour.

Considering Venice as an incredible, unique city for its structure, we imagine the majority of you to be interested in capture, not only the authentic soul of this city, but to do it by using its main distinctive element: water. Canals are an interesting and peculiar feature of Venice, they are used as roads offering to a photographer endless opportunities to capture the coming and going of transports and people or the movements generated by them. For this reason, you won't find more colorful and dancing reflections than here. Furthermore, sky, buildings, lights, sun and moon could reflect in the relaxing, sparkling and calming waters of the lagoon.

If you want to truly improve and develop your abilities in photography, follow our master photographer in this short on-the-field workshop! With our insider professional you will easily obtain stunning pictures thanks to the many tips and tricks offered by a real expert. Walking on and off the beaten paths you will immerse yourself in the magnificent context of the lagoon city, learning to capture pictures, that will help you feel completely satisfied by your competences. Shadows, lights, movements and reflections of the waters will give you thousands of ideas and hints to experiment with your camera settings and composition.

  1. Step 1 Canal Grande (Grand Canal)

    Being surrounded by ancient buildings and bridges, façades glow in its waters all over each part of the canal. Extremely interesting on its own, you can wait the pass of a gondola or a boat to take advantage of the movement they create on the surface of the water.

  2. Step 2 Rialto Bridge

    It could be considered nothing more than a tourist hotspot, but we think that overlooking on it in search of the sunset is one of the most heart breathtaking experiences to live in Venice. Even with a camera. The sinuous curve of the canal flanked by colorful buildings and the busy streets all around, with their people, lights and restaurants, offer a perfect foreground.

  3. Step 3 Burano

    A gem of the Venetian lagoon, really worth a visit. In this workshop we will look at the colorful houses and architectures reflecting on the calm waters of the lagoon, and, walking towards the external shores, we will appreciate the slow movement of the boats and their glare.

  4. Step 4 Waterfront Riva degli Schiavoni and Castello district

    Strolling around this district will allow you to pass through bridges that offer interesting views on some canals and on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore. The several opportunities provided by these calli, will allow you to experiment with low light techniques and slow shutter shots, with the moving waters in front and the city's skyline on the background.


Freelance photographer, Leica Ambassador, and teacher at Manfrotto School of Xcellence, Marc chose Venice as his home years ago and he now holds Photo Tours and photo walks in this city.

He studied photography with some of the greatest professionals of the international scene as David Alan HarveyAlex Majoli, Kent Kobersteenand many others; he published several books about Venice and its region as well as articles on countless newspapers and magazines.


The photographic tours could take place in the major cities, every day in the whole year. We look for the best of the urban context and suggest it to our community. Photo shooting activities are available both privately or in group up to a maximum of 8 photographers (please check the dedicated section private vs. group photo tour). In both cases we recommend to ask with at least 7 days in advance.

In case of heavy rain or impossibility to conduct the tour by the photo master,  the photo tour could be cancelled  up to 24 hours before its beginning. If you wish to renounce for personal reasons, it is possible to cancel the reservation up to 72 hours before the beginning of the tour, without adduce any further reasons. In both cases the total amount would be refund completely, except for the PayPal transaction fees, or a new date could be rescheduled.

Of course! We will be happy to hear a proposal from you and we will do our best to make it real.
