The Carnival of Venice (Carnevale di Venezia) is a festival of  colors and sounds like no other else in the world. Every year some of the most elaborate and rich costumes are put on display by people who live and breath for the Carnival.

It is also a fantastic opportunity for photographers, who flock to Venice every year to photograph what might be the most beautiful city in the world at a time when it hosts one of the world’s most colorful events, where imagination knows no bounds.

No photographer is better equipped to capture the beauty of the Carnival than Robin Yong, who has built his reputation around creating outstanding travel portraits and who has developed an intense network of relationships with the best masked models of Venice. Those relationships recently gained him an invite on a cruise in the Mediterranean, specifically organized to allow models and photographers the best opportunities to pose and shoot.

Watch the video below to admire some of Robin’s best photographs from the Carnival and remember that Robin will be co-leading with us our upcoming photography workshop, Venice and the Magic of the Carnival.

    That is amazing. I thought the costumes at our New Orleans Mardi Gras (Carnival) were fabulous but those were amazing. While watching the video you got a lot of outdoor shots, are they just walking around or do they have parades and such. I have heard that there are often masquerade balls that are sometimes secret like we have here in New Orleans too…that is on my bucket list for sure

      Most of the time they just walk around or stand in popular spots like St. Mark’s Square or the Bridge of Sighs. There are also parades and events, both indoors and outdoors, ranging from public to accessible to exclusive to secret.
