About Me

For whom is curious....


Venice-born Vinicio Tassani spent his youth immersed in the daily passions of that beautiful Italian metropolis, where his desire to become a photographer was first catalyzed.  His dedication to the art of “drawing with light,” which was further sharpened in his attending the New York Institute of Photography, would become a life-long quest.

In perfecting creative shooting for commissioned assignments, he primarily uses digital format photography, although his creative talents cames from analog photography.  As he said, “Even film is more costly and time-intensive, it allows me to truly focus on the images while giving me a real sense of freedom.”  

Rarely in the outdoors without his Leica M camera in tow, Vinicio’s areas of specialty include travel, street and portrait photography.  He is gifted with the uncanny knack of illuminating his subject matter, to the extent that it has been described as radiating from his lens. While his range of subject matter is diverse, the goal is always the same:  to capture the human element, or an essential moment suspended in time, reflecting the nuance, mystery and beauty of life on our planet.

Throughout an accomplished career Vinicio has garnered myriad awards and recognition at the numerous global exhibitions in which he has participated. He believes in a strong collaboration with world experts, photography institutions, non-profit organizations, social networking sites and novice associates in order to further refine his knowledge of the art of photography.  His work is available electronically and in book format, selected with absolute care.

This tour was possibly the highlight of our trip! Our guide was Vinnie, a born and bred Venetian and boy did he know his city. My only regret is that I did not book him for our first day in Venice-----then all my pictures would have been amazing!! We met with him on our third evening in Venice, so we had covered a lot of the major sights by then.....but Vinnie had a surprise for us...he took us to several areas we did not know existed because they were secrets of the locals! And those sights were by far the best kept secrets of Venice. I chose to use my I phone and he gave me some wonderful instructions and tips that I can also use with my DSL. It was a wonderful walking tour and a great way to end our stay in Venice. But I do have to say, my pictures of Croatia and Greece were wonderful as a result of his expertise. I would highly recommend this tour as long as Vinnie is your guide!! He is an amazing photographer himself and I really enjoyed hearing about his travels also. If I every make it back to Venice, I will book him again!!!! Thank you Vinnie!!! Joan H - August 2017
The session was just with ourselves and Venicio, the photographer. He showed me features on our camera that I did not know about, and the photos taken, with his guidance and expertise, are brilliant. He was such a nice person and so knowledgable about the areas we went to, it was also a personal tour of Venice away from the tourist routes. It has given me a new desire to take more creative photos.
