Focused on photo tours and workshops with an eye to sustainability and ecotourism; preserving Venice's natural and cultural resources, committed to showing tourists the real Venice of the Venetians
VENICE, ITALY, May 29, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Today, Better Photo Walks was the proud recipient of TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame accolade due to earning the Certificate of Excellence for five years in a row. The company, which focuses on photo walks and photography workshops but with an eye to sustainability and ecotourism; preserving Venice's natural and cultural resources, is committed to providing tourists with the opportunity to see the real Venice and experience all that Venice has to offer through the creative lens of a photographer's eye.
Guests consistently rate their Better Photo Walks experience highly because of the staff's individualized approach to photo tourism and deep knowledge of Venice's current and historical value. One tourist remarked that Better Photo Walks' Venice photo tour was, "An outstanding start to our first visit to Venice." Tour leaders are skilled in a variety of camera equipment and are professional photographers with a passion for teaching, which means they spend extra time with guests to ensure no photo opportunity is missed.
Offering an experience that is truly unique, Better Photo Walks chooses the most sought-after locations throughout Venice to host the tours, such as St. Mark's Square and sights along the Grand Canal, as well as little known gems like private courtyards and tranquil gardens. Timing of each photo tour is chosen to guarantee participants can capture scenes in the best lighting and without the clutter of crowds.
For tourists who have been to Venice in the past, attending a Better Photo Walks tour is a refreshing change. "I had been to Venice before but this tour was a completely new experience," said one reviewer who commented that it was fun for the entire family. A leader in the category of photo tours, Better Photo Walks is the original creator of the Venice photo walk and consistently sells out tours throughout the year.
The company is deeply committed to creating positive changes in local tourism and protecting Venice's natural and cultural resources. Better Photo Walks' photographers and staff are always respectful of the natural environment both while on tours and operating the business. This commitment is one aspect of Better Photo Walks that guests continue to praise on TripAdvisor.
Their two leading partners in Venice are Simone Padovani and Stefano Mazzola, two professional photojournalists, regularly published on international newspapers and magazines and represented by Getty Images.
A recent addition to their services, Better Photo Walks now collaborates with Classic Boat Venice which uses electric motor boats to give tour participants unrivalled views of the Venice lagoon. This collaborative effort between the two companies works to maintain the flora and fauna found in the environment and simultaneously add value to the Venice photo walk experience.
Founder Marco Secchi commented, "Despite the crisis affecting many businesses including guides and tour operators in Venice and Italy for us, on the contrary, is an excellent year and we have already achieved a 10% higher turnover compared to last year, so it is going to be an excellent year of growth."
Better Photo Walks offers multiple photo walk packages to suit the goals of beginners and seasoned photographers alike. The standard Venice photo walk lasts between two and three hours, includes complimentary equipment set up and consultation, and is designed to help guests create a visual story from their experience. The company also offers extended photo workshops, private photo tours and sunrise or sunset workshops to ensure participants capture the perfect light.
