What you'll do

What better way to discover the city than through the lens of your phone or camera with the professional advice of a photographer?
Capture the details of what makes Venice unforgettable, whether for you that means the reflections of Venetian red in the green of the lagoon, the daily routine of the village elders chatting in the town square, or the quiet ruins of what was once the architectural splendor of “la Serenissima.”
We will meet in one of Venice neighbourhoods which is still not invaded by tourists, Castello. From there we will explore the city and I will do everything to let you not be surrounded by tourists. It is easy, I know the place very well :) My main purpose is to let you see the real hidden Venice.
I will teach you how to shoot the best and real pictures of the city. I will pass you my photographic experience so that you can bring home a good memory of Venice, and not just snapshots. I also know the history of Venice very well, so I will tell you the story of all the buildings and corners that we will take pictures of.
–The experience is for individuals, couples and families :)
– If I am not available on the day you chose, write me and we will organize the meeting

I was born in Rome in 1990. I started taking pictures when I was 19, initially only analog and since 2014 also digital. In 2016, after finishing my master in philosophical aesthetics, photography became my profession. I published reportage on India, Himalayan winter, Romania, Venice...
Venice is my base camp. After every trip I come back here. I love the city, and I love shooting pictures of it. I am passionate about every single corner of town and especially of the parts of the city which are not full of tourists. I always try to shoot pictures of an intimate and authentic Venice.

Jacopo is very knowledgeable about photography and about Venice. He has a gentle and relaxed nature and he shaped the tour to suit our interests and needs. Participating in Jacopo's tour provided very valuable photographic tips and guidance, even though we had only basic iphone cameras. Jacopo speaks English fluently and we would recommend this tour highly to others wanting a unique experience in an interesting part of Venice.

Spent a lovely morning with Jacopo walking through quieter streets of Venice, taking photos and learning more about my camera. It was my first time in Venice so this was an ideal way to get to see the city while understanding more about photography. Jacopo's tour was relaxed and tailor -made to suit what I was most interested in. Would definitely recommend this as a creative way to explore this beautiful city..

We had a wonderful time on our tour with Jacopo, taking beautiful unique pictures, chatting about Venice and photography. He was very flexible with our wishes - our pace of walking, sites we were more interested in, talked in depht about the topics we were asking about. Our group also got to see the lesser known parts of Venice were locals live, which we wouldn’t have found otherwise. All in all, great experience! If you want a laid back yet informative tour of non-touristic Venice then we definetly recomend!

I had an amazing photo walk with Jacopo. He is an expert in photography and was always patient to teach me how to nail the perfect street shot. The neighborhood itself is interesting with mostly locals.
