Update: After my first trip to Venice in August 2015 I went back to Venice in February 2016 with my good friend Dane Vetter. Not the best weather in that week, unfortunately, but Venice is beautiful when it rains as well. Enjoy the highlights from both trips!
I went to Venice in August 2015 for just 4 days but these were exhausting 4 days with getting up at 4.30 am and returning at 10 pm in the evening. Together with hot and humid weather and 15 kg on my back I was feeling like being in hell from time to time, but the resulting photos were worth everything.
Have a look at my Venice Travel Guide as well where I put together all details needed for a successful trip to Venice from a photographer's point of view:
