Carnival in Rio

Carnival in Rio de Janerio is a feast in colours, culture, passion, music and dance. It’s a lifetime experience for anyone who goes to Rio in February. Particularly for photographers this is an event which will set off the trigger finger and surely result in some amazing picture. Would you want to go? My good friend and colleague Sven Creutzmann is teaching a photo workshop during Carnival in Rio next year. If you are interested in photo workshops, I highly recommend this one. It will run from February 8th to 12th 2013.


The carnival is the most famous holiday celebration in Rio and there is no better way to learn photography and enjoy the local «Carioca» lifestyle as when the city is embraced by visitors from all over the world, Samba music can be heard from everywhere and crowds of people gather to dance and celebrate Carnival all day and night. The workshop will include sightseeing to Rio’s famous landmarks such as Corcovado, Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf and the well-known beaches such as Copacabana and Ipanema.

For more information, visit Fotomiles website, the organizer of workshop.

  1. I agree it would be an amazing trip! I have been to Rio and Brazil before but not during Carnaval time and it’s such a fabulous country, so vibrant and fun!

  2. Awesome and you know what I love about that second photo you posted? I’m used to seeing the youthful, sexy ladies in their tight outfits and while they add to the spirit of carnival, this lady is mature and a breath of fresh air… love it! 😉

  3. Rio without Carnival is impossible. Rio and Carnival is one. great idea for the next hunting in the Netherlands. In early February, carnival will begin. Still winter, but carnival does not know boundaries 😀

  4. Sven Creutzmann’s photos are brilliant and you’re so generous to post them on your blog.
    I love his second picture. If each person gets on the subway with all those feathers and whatnot how on earth is there room for commuters?

  5. Love the colors and the vibrant festivities in Rio. Even more moving and interesting are the stories that happens when the lights and merriment are gone and real life starts rolling. I grew in the Philippines and we too have a lot of similar celebrations. For a moment they help us forget the pains of life and make us feel hopeful.

  6. hello, sir Otto… the first pic is just awesome, ahaha… shocks, i wonder if my feet will get to touch the grounds of Brazil before i kick the bucket, lol.

    hope things are doing great, thanks for the visit. 🙂
