Greek Islands Photo Tour: Tinos, Mykonos, Greece (9 days/8 nights)

Explore Greece’s diverse faces whilst you refine your skills in photography alongside a top seasoned pro!

A complete travel experience in Athens-Mykonos-Tinos, in a small flexible group up to 6 persons, that allows you to get to know the real local life of each place.
Experience the culture, the nature, the landscapes, the culinary scene and the authentic Greek way of living of three completely different destinations, through an immersive 10-day photography workshop tour.

In a friendly casual format, our photo tours offer in-depth, hands-on photography instruction, through a rich itinerary that draws the profile of each place.

The Workshop

The idea throughout your travel photography workshop is to have daily photo shoots that we can view and discuss at the end of the day. Each day we will take one or two tours around to visit designated sites and work on specified photo projects. Our aim is to cover as many areas of photography as possible, such as street, architecture, landscape, and portrait photography.

Although instructors will provide technical tips and tricks throughout the duration of your photography trip, the workshop will emphasize what makes images interesting rather than simply technically correct. Provisions will be made so that we may download and quick-view images daily. Instructors will be available to comment on your images individually. Furthermore, there will be two long group sessions -halfway and at the end of the photo workshop- to review the photos taken by all participants, to discuss them technically and aesthetically, and to explore post-processing options.

Upon registering, you will be contacted by the instructors via e-mail. You will be sent a short questionnaire and a multiple-choice test to establish your skill level as well as your photographic needs and wants. This will help instructors prepare for individual counselling.
