Venice Carnival Photo Tour, Feb. 2012

Are you ready? This is an incredible event!

We’ve just finished planning a photo tour to the Venice Carnival (February 14th-19th, 2012): one of the most colorful, historical, and visually exciting festivals in the world!

David Nightingale and Bobbi Lane, assisted by Fabio Thian (a Venice-based photographer), will be leading a small group of students on a five-day, six-night photo tour exploring the people and places of this stunning city. The Workshop is an incredible opportunity to photograph this unique event with two respected and dedicated photography educators who will give you a wealth of individual attention and instruction.

You will come away with a varied portfolio of shots: from street photography and incredible shots of Venice and surrounding areas, to dramatic and compelling portraits, both of the local festival populace and our hired and costumed models.

The tour is limited to 16 people, so sign up soon if you’d like to come along. We hope you can join us for a fun-filled and unique opportunity to expand both your craft and your story telling abilities.

For more information, take a look at the following page:

Please help us to publicize this event by using any of the sharing buttons on the event page to publish the details to Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or elsewhere.

Best wishes, and we hope to see you in Venice next February!

Welcome! My first Blog!

Took me long enough, don’t you think? I’m very excited to embark on this new adventure and I intend to publish often with lots of information about photography, both the art and the techniques. The blog is still developing, so check in often to see what’s been uploaded. My fabulous assistant, Shannon Cohen, has been instrumental in helping me start this whole process and I’m grateful and honored to have her help. The first news is also quite an honor. I’ve been named as one of the top 13 Photography Workshop Instructors by Photo District News. The online version is available now and the Sept. print version will be out soon.
