Santorini 8 Day Photography Tour
Dates : 9th - 16th May 2020
With its dazzling white houses, blue-domed churches, twisting alleyways and hilltop windmills, Santorini is Greece at its traditional best. Famous for its stunning sunsets, sweeping wide vistas across the dramatic caldera and beautiful architectural detail, it's no wonder that this island is on the bucket list for so many photographers.
Join me for a wonderful photography tour to this enchanting, magical island.
Our tour is timed for early May when the island enjoys warm weather and fewer tourists.
We will stay in a small, family run hotel in the bustling village of Fira. An ideal location in the centre of the island and within walking distance of fantastic viewpoints across the dramatic caldera.
During the tour we will be spending much of our time in the four very different towns and villages of Fira, Firostephani, Imerovigli and Oia as well as visiting other interesting locations on this stunning island. We will explore quaint traditional villages, hilltop churches, dramatic coastline and ancient archaeological sites.
In order to make the most of the beautiful sunrises, sunsets and blue hours, we will be out photographing at dawn and dusk. We'll also have some free time to allow you to relax and enjoy the delights of the island.
The atmosphere will be informal and friendly and in the evenings we’ll enjoy traditional Greek food and excellent local wines.
In addition to great photography opportunities on this photography tour we will have time for photo sharing and critiques. I will also be providing help on photographic topics including:
Depth of Field calculation
Use of filters
Long exposure photography
Blue Hour Photography
Post processing in Lightroom, Photoshop and Nik software (if time permits)
Our time together will include individual and group discussions, inspiring ideas and great fun. I cannot think of a better location to express your creativity than the breath-taking island of Santorini!
This tour is limited to a maximum of 6 people, so book early to avoid disappointment.
