In January this year we enjoyed a wonderful adventure with a small group of clients willing to try something different and book based. We enjoyed it so much we have decided to run it again in 2025.

This is not a traditional venetian photography workshop, we will balance photography, editing, printing and book making. If you haven't been to Venice before, we suggest you go with one of the many excellent photo companies. I can personally recommend Light & Land and Dawn-to-Dusk, you won't be disappointed.

Our visit will focus more on the low key and less trodden paths. Looking for light and shade, atmospheres and impressions, details, abstracts, textures and colours. We will capture these moments using your favourite tools. You could easily use just your phone. Adrian's extensive knowledge of phone and conventional photography, editing and printing combined with Clea's creative and book making skills will allow you to express yourself in print. We will have printing tools of various sorts and plan to make a book or two in a number of ways. We will also visit a few local artisans who might inspire your book project. January is quiet; there are few tourists, so we can focus and enjoy this special place, returning home with something unique to treasure rather than just a card of images.


We will adjust the agenda based on the weather but our plan will be to photograph in the mornings and create in the afternoons. We can also include pre-dawn outings and explore the back streets at night.

Start and End times

The workshop starts at 5pm on 20th Jan and ends at 5pm on the 24th Jan. We have booked the hotel for the night of the 24th so you can relax at the end of the last day and return home on the 25th.
