Bobbi Lane and Lee Varis, Fuji-X Photographers, are hosting the Venice Carnival Photo Tour for a seven day event that includes photographing the amazing costumes and an exploration of this gorgeous city.It’s an extraordinary event, and we will help you capture the fun and revelry along with the rich architecture and the splendid light.
This is Bobbi’s 12th and Lee’s 9th time photographing Venice Carnival and we have made many friendships with the top models with their elaborate costumes. We arrange private shoots with the costumers, including the opportunity to photograph them in a gondola. Lighting is of great importance, and we provide extensive instruction in both natural lighting, and working with flash.
Join Bobbi & Lee on a five-day, small group photographic exploration of the many diverse and ethnic areas that comprise this grand mosaic that is New York. The photo locations are ones that out-of-town visitors and many residents rarely visit. We will walk the streets, ride the subways, and be always in the thick of it. Lunches are in restaurants that are consistent with the ethnic demographic of the neighborhood. The experience offers you many opportunities to photograph the daily life of people and explore colorful and remarkable locations that make up the richness of this city.
Join us for a magical photo-vacation adventure in sun soaked Tuscany. We are taking over a villa in the Val D’orcia region of Italy near Siena. The luxury villa has a pool, jacuzzi, and sauna, 9 bedrooms, full vegetable garden, with a vineyard, and fantastic views of the countryside. The Villa is located on an organic farm estate that extends for over 300 hectares, in the beautiful rolling hills of Val d’Orcia, a wonderful area in Tuscany nestling between Siena, Montalcino, the Crete Senesi, Pienza and Montepulciano. Renovated in 2014, Villa Mariolina is a truly luxurious villa, equipped with all comforts and amenities. It is centrally located in some of Tuscany’s most impressive scenery and in an area protected by UNESCO for its beautiful scenery
