Many of these places are hidden, out of sight, unless you know where the are and how to enter.
Our artisan photo walks will enwd with a visit to one of our partner artisans, which can be a maker of traditional Venetian glass beads, a coffee toaster, a maker of oars and oarlocks for gondolas,…
Besides getting to know the artisan owner of the shop and learning about their trade and traditions, you’ll get the possibility of taking photos of them, their workshop and their utensils while they’re working.
Before the visit we’ll do a shorter version of our classic photo walk.
Our artisan photo walks
Many workshops are often small, with limited space and low light.
Photography is usually difficult, requiring wide open diaphragms, high ISO settings, and wide angle lenses to shoot closer up.
The use tripods and flash is not always possible or even allowed.
It will normally non be possible to ‘direct’ the artisans or get them to pose. They are, after all, there to do their work, not to be photographed.
Photo Walks Venice currently has partnerships with
- Bead makers,
- Oar makers,
- Coffee toasters,
