Darlene Hildebrandt

One of our favorite guests is back on the show! When Ugo interviewed Darlene Hildebrandt in episode 85, she expressed her intention to come to Venice for the Carnival and join the workshop that Ugo leads there every year.

Darlene is the creator of Digital Photo Mentor. She has been a professional photographer for over 30 years, and photography educator since 2011. Darlene provides valuable articles on her site, has a free ebook, and offers online photography courses, as well as photography travel tours. Her next tours are to Morocco in April and Peru and India in the fall of 2020.

As sometimes happens, things didn’t go exactly as planned and, also thanks to a broken foot, Darlene had to wait more than two years before she could come to Venice.

She finally did just recently and that was a perfect opportunity to interview her again and ask about her impressions of Venice and the Carnival.

We recorded the interview in busy St. Mark’s Square and, even though it was still 7AM, there was a lot going on. It was also quite windy, so the audio quality wasn’t the best, but everything is still perfectly intelligible.

We also recorded a video, that you can find below the fold.
