New Hobbies: Photography Tours

PHOTOGRAPHING EUROPE

 

Who says you need fancy equipment or specialized knowledge to enjoy the experience of photographing your favorite city?

For amateurs and professionals alike, these guided photography tours, led by local experts, provide the perfect platform from which to explore the sights, history and culture of Europe through your own, unique lens.

1. We Open in Venice
Venice is a great starting point for absolute beginners. I don’t think there is one corner of that city that isn’t aesthetically overwhelming! The Grand Canal alone will provide you with enough shots for an entire roll of film. Turn the corner and admire the friendly gondoliers, as they effortlessly coast down one of many peaceful, winding tributaries. Get lost in the maze of picturesque alleyways amidst colorful buildings and quaint cafes. Enter Piazza San Marco, and you are inundated with the largest concentration of pigeons that you have ever seen. It is seriously difficult to depart Venice without some satisfying images!

After becoming acquainted with the city and your equipment, you may want to expand your local knowledge and sharpen your newfound photography skills on the Hidden Venice Walking Tour.

2. History buffs to Berlin
Rediscover the history and culture of this fascinating city through the exciting process of imagining, framing and shooting. You will be led by a local expert through several key sites, including Nikolaiviertel (Nikolai Quarter), the city’s well-preserved medieval square. Enter the mindset of Prussian kings and architects as you snap away in front of the fascinating buildings of Museumsinsel (Museum Island). Explore the legendary narratives of Frederick the Great through your own vantage points.

You will depart with a new, enhanced understanding of this fascinating city along with unique photographs and stories to prove it!

3. Budapest for the Imaginative
This post-communist city has such diverse historical layers and architectural styles that no single visitor will leave with quite the same impression. A guided tour is the perfect way to kick-start your photographic adventure as you wander through the side streets and admire the city’s crumbling history alongside its contemporary reconstructions. One may be attracted to the famous “castle hill,” with its grand architecture, monuments and panoramic views over the Danube River. Another might focus on the worn façades of beige, red, yellow and brown and bits of crumbling detail that serve as a reminder of this city’s turbulent plight.

Though you won’t be able to take your cameras into the Gellert Baths, they are definitely worth a visit as well!

Now, snap away!
