Bruna Marchetti – guide at Photo Walks in Venice

About me

I’m a passionate photographer living in Venice who enjoys exploring the city by foot and love to share with you some photographic tips and useful suggestions to photograph and find joy in familiarity with the hidden corners or iconic places in Venice and its top islands.

I can speak and lead the walk in Italian or English.

Awards and skills

I have been taking photos from many years and my photographs has been exposed in numerous collective and solo expositions. Some of them has been featured in real books and e-books and magazines. I organize and lead workshops focused on developing visual sensibility and photographic attitude starting from my greatest passions: philosophy and photography.

What are we going to do?

I’d love to share with you some of the things I’ve learned about photography in a very pleasant and friendly way: walking through the most gorgeous and iconic areas of Venice or silently wandering inside its hidden and most enchanting corners.

We will have several stops in the most attractive places and I will suggest you how to play with your camera chasing lights and shadows; moreover I will show you how to capture mesmerizing water reflection or framing the beauty of ordinary life of locals.

During our walk you will also have the opportunity to visit an artisan workshop that belongs to the most ancient tradition of craftwork in Venice. While giving some tips to intensify your visual sensibility or suggestions on how to gain unexpected perspectives I hope to make your full immersion experience of Venice unforgettable.

What should you know about this experience?

It doesn’t matter if you’re a pro or an amateur in photography, if you have an expensive DSLR camera or just your phone, everyone is welcome.

Throughout our walk, I’ll give you tips about composition, camera settings, location and more in order to help you get the best photos not just from Venice.

Additionally, this photo-walk can turn into your personal photo-shoot, where you’ll turn into the model and I’ll take photos of you with various scenic parts of Venice in the background.

What do you have to bring with you?

A big amount of curiosity and your smile.

A camera: reflex camera, point-and-shoot, or even your smartphone.

Comfortable shoes. A raincoat In case of light rain and a pair of rain boot in case of high tide.

A nice and funny umbrella could be part of the setting if you like to play with colours and reflections to enhance you creativity transforming a grey rainy day in a colourful mood!
