Short Description

Join us for Venice in the Fall when often, there are moody fogs and mists. Whatever Mother Nature chooses to give us, there are always amazing photographic possibilities. There is the fish market early in the morning, the lights that cast wonderful shadows in the evenings, amazing architecture, and of course, the gondolas. We know and love this charming city, and we will also have with us a guest instructor, an alumnus, our Gentleman from Verona, who works often in “Venezia” and knows her well. With him, we will go to great locations where you can interpret your own scenes. Weather permitting, we will head out to one of the colorful islands where fisherman have been based for years. We also try to take in at least one photo exhibition to give you a sense of photography beyond the Internet. And we should not forget the great food and wine!

Our tag line is "Seek Your Own Vision, and Make Great Photos," and we mean it. Standing cheek by jowel with a gaggle of photographers is not the way to get unique images. Our goal is to help you find your vision and use age-old principles of art to make compelling images that tell your story. We stress aesthetics over techno-speak, and our daily critiques incorporate just that.


Margo and Arnie are world travelers who in their past lives, worked for the best of the best, LIFE, Time, GEO, Geographic, etc. and were hired by Fortune 500 corporations for their unique vision. Their work is in museums and collections world-wide. Let them help you take that next step in your photographic journey.
