Frequently Asked Questions
Why choose Venice Photo Tours?
Our photographers love photography and it shows in their passion and enthusiasm they convey this to our clients. They not only help in the artistic process of creating images, but they'll talk about the latest gear, software, what’s happening in the industry and of course, talk about Venice.
You can expect to improve your photography, develop your personal vision, make new friends, discover new horizons and new cultures, have fun, experience adventure, be in awe of the wonderful city of Rome, deepen or rekindle your passion for photography, and go back with memorable photos and anecdotes.

Can you recommend what photography equipment I might need?
The great thing about Venice is that there are so many wonderful photographic possibilities close by. There is no need for a super telephoto lens. The longest lens I carry from time to time is the 70-200mm. Whether you have a point and shoot or a great digital SLR you’ll be able to capture many unique images.
Assortment of lenses. A good range is 28-200mm.
A flash unit (we may not use it, but it’s nice to have just in case)
Tripod (night photography or low light situations) Venice has wonderful opportunities for night photography.
Great pair of walking shoes
