To capture the magic of Venice Carnival 2024 with a professional photographer seems to be a very nice idea. I hope to be the one you'll choose for you and your masks. The Venice Carnival is well known throughout the world for its colorful and vibrant parades and parties . If you’re planning on attending, then hiring a photographer to capture the memories is a very nice idea.
The dates for the general event are from February the 3rs to February the 13th. but among special events on Saturday the 10th there will be the VIP masked ball "Il ballo del Doge" that is a date gets booked very early by guests that want a photographer before the party, example from last year from a guest.
" La nuit des Rois" is another interesting event.
My first answer is to ensure there is a match between their vision and your tastes: this is so important for both you and the photographer.
Personally I greatly appreciate working as I see the world for people that shares that vision. There is a dedicated photogallery for Carnival images.
A second point is the match in personality, this is probably more important for wedding and events that are much longer and intense than a carnival photo session but still it matters.
For the first point I curated a selection of image at the end of this page. While for the other getting in touch would be the best way to arrange for the session. On option is to arrange a zoom call and this can be done clicking here. A more immediate possibility would be to send a message via whatsapp by clicking on the green button or on this link. My contact page offers even more options.
Venice has the incredible benefit of offering very nice background pretty much anywhere. My approach is to focus on making the experience pleasant for the clients so that I will try to meet you wherever it is most convenient for you (usually at the hotel), and end the session where the light will be good enough to be practical for your next destination.
In terms of places I try to balance the experience of an almost empty Venice "off the beaten path" with a few iconic landmarks that would make it clear where you have, but this can be arranged to match your tastes.
So anytime during the day would be very good, we could start at sunrise or finish a bit after sunset but in February we can create very good images all over the day and central hours will be a bit warmer.
This information would help planning the session in a way that may involve them or if not to make arrangements so that the session will be intense but short enough for you not to be missed too much.
We can discuss about practical details of your photosession by any mean that is convenient for you, hope to hear from you soon and in any case best wishes for your time in Venice during carnival 2024.
