Our Venice photography tour will take place in January 2023 led by Phil Malpas.

It is difficult to imagine that a collection of men, originating as legend has it from Illyria, chose to initiate the building of the settlement that would become Venice upon the most feeble of island foundations: marsh, mud and silt! The true early origins of this highly improbable city are hard to corroborate as fable and fact are woven through its early history.

The Venice we see today is a city that could so easily be a product of one’s imagination and this magical place conveys to today’s visitor much of what might have been seen and experienced over the last millennium and a half. This tour is an intensive workshop making images of the wonderful Venetian architecture, canals and gondolas.

Venice Photography Tour - Venice Landscape Photography

It is difficult to imagine that a collection of men, originating as legend has it from Illyria, chose to initiate the building of the settlement that would become Venice upon the most feeble of island foundations: marsh, mud and silt! The true early origins of this highly improbable city are hard to corroborate as fable and fact are woven through its early history. The Venice we see today and on this photography tour is a city that could so easily be a product of one’s imagination and this magical place conveys to today’s visitor much of what might have been seen and experienced over the last millennium and a half.

Venice was once Europe’s supreme trading republic with the most powerful navy in the Adriatic. The republic’s great wealth led to the construction of some of Europe’s finest architecture, from the Byzantine, Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance periods. Nowhere else can one see such a remarkable medley of architectural styles, and this, along with the city’s 410 bridges, will present a never-ending series of opportunities to the photographic eye.

Visiting Venice for the first time many people feel that they have already travelled here in their imaginations. Literature, painting and, latterly, the cinema have all contributed to embedding the city’s mythical nature into our minds.

For early risers amongst our party, a fine dawn across the Piazza San Marco will both abide in the memory and become a fabulous image. Nothing could be more poetic than to stand on the Rialto Bridge looking westwards in the winter months as the soft evening sun reflects and radiates in slippery golden ribbons across the black lacquer of the gondola prow.

Away from the splendours of this captivating city, nowhere could be more contrasting than the delightful island of Burano. On a sunny day the houses, with their toy town appearance, colourfully reminiscent of liquorice allsorts, spill their wiggling reflections into the canals providing the photographer with tantalising imagery.

Venice is surely made for photography!

This Venice photography tour is an intensive workshop making images of the wonderful Venetian architecture, canals and gondolas led by Phil Malpas.

I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the trip. Excellent photographic locations, very knowledgeable tutors and a decent hotel. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Claire - 9th Feb, 2020

I am a passionate landscape photographer and plan my holidays to accommodate photographic workshops in both Australia and Europe, so over the last few years I've done quite a few and think I’m well qualified to comment on the Venice workshop run by Clive Minnit & Phil Malpas. In a word it was brilliant. Not only do Clive & Phil know the technical stuff, they both have a great eye and I was encouraged to see the details of that much photographed city. Their passion for photography is infectiou

Jeffrey Hargreaves - 6th Feb, 2020

Good tour with Clive & Phil as always they have a good plan whatever the weather and a plan b&c up their sleeves.

Peter Smith - 5th Feb, 2020

Excellent.

Lis - 30th Jan, 2020

Clive and Phil are to my mind the best in the business. They were extremely well informed, both about Venice and about photography and how to help us interpret this wonderful place in our own way, And equally, extremely helpful, totally focused on the clients and lovely company. If there were more than 5 stars I would want to give the.
