What is this?

Immerse yourself in the vibrant heart of Venice during its most magical time, the Carnevale, through a 3-day photography workshop led by renowned photographer Marco Secchi. This shared experience invites both amateur and professional photographers to capture the essence of the Carnevale's stunning array of exquisite costumes against the timeless beauty of one of the world's most picturesque cities, during a season marked by beguiling layers of fog and light. With Marco's expert guidance, you'll explore the city's enchanting alleyways, hidden spots and secretive sides seldom seen by visitors, all while honing your photography skills. From pre-arranged shooting sessions with elaborately costumed models in secluded locations to sunrise/sunset captures in emblematic squares, this workshop offers a comprehensive journey through Carnevale's splendor. You will also have the unique opportunity to visit artisan workshops to witness the craftsmanship behind the masks and costumes.

What makes this unique?

The Venice Carnevale has deep-rooted origins dating back to the era of the "Serenissima." The zenith of Venice's opulence in the sixteenth century witnessed lavish festivities, where the anonymity afforded by masks blurred societal distinctions among citizens, fostering a unique sense of equality across class, age, and wealth. This experience is very special, as it captures the true ethos of Carnevale. Through a carefully curated 24-hour itinerary spread over three days, you are immersed in the art and culture of Venice. Activities are designed to capture Venice's myriad facets, from its serene mornings to the magical twilight ambiance. Limited to six participants, it offers an intimate setting to enhance your photography skills and gather a great portfolio of photos. The itinerary provided in the Experience Details is subject to change, influenced by weather, lighting, and coinciding local events, ensuring each day is optimized for the best photographic and experiential outcomes.
