5 day photography holidays experience
Santorini’s Caldera is one of the most recognizable and most photographed views in the world. It was created after the eruption of a volcano during the 15th century BC, which plunged the central part of the island into the sea. This led to the creation of four small islands and Santorini. Today, perched – one might even say suspended – on the steep cliff overlooking the Caldera, there is a ring of beautiful, traditional villages with breath-taking views. Fira, Firostefani, Imerovigli and Oia are every photographer’s dream. There, walking along the narrow streets, we will come across small, white, cube-shaped houses, but also buildings with powerful curves and saturated colors. At every corner there is an amazing photo just waiting to be taken! Other places of photographic interest on Santorini include the beaches of Kamari and Perissa with their black, volcanic pebbles, the Red beach, and many small villages, each with its own history. The Wine Museum, which we will visit, is also of great photographic interest, since it is underground, with meticulous artificial lighting and extraordinary exhibits. But our photography vacation on Santorini won’t be limited to the island. We will take a little boat to Thirassia, the second largest island in the Caldera, to photograph its traditional settlement.

Photography Holidays Schedule
Welcome to our photography holidays in Santorini!
We will pick you up at the airport and bring you to Costamarina villas in Fira village, where you will check in. (An airport pickup will also be available if you choose to arrive in Santorini one day earlier.)
There will be a welcome lunch at Pelican restaurant during which we will give you general information about Santorini and the places we will be photographing.
Lunch will be followed by an introduction to the art of photography, the technical features of the camera and the importance of a creative viewpoint. Immediately afterwards and a little before sunset, we will take our first photographs in Caldera.
Everyday we will go on carefully planned outings in order to photograph the most interesting sights in Santorini and Caldera’s islands at the most appropriate time of day. At the same time, we will discuss the techniques which will improve your photographs and will inspire you to develop your creativity. We will also comment on the photos you have chosen and processed – which is why it would be a good idea for you to bring along your laptop. On our last evening, we will offer the group a complimentary farewell dinner.
On the last day of our photo adventure in Santorini, we will talk about your impressions of the course and we will choose your best photos. We will then accompany you to the airport, unless you have chosen to stay in Greece longer.
We are certain that you will have enjoyed an unforgettable photography holiday which you will be able to share with all your relatives and friends back home through the best possible proof: your photographs!
Each group will consist of 4 to 8 people. Also, if you are accompanied by someone who will be staying with you but who does not wish to participate in the photography seminars, please let us now beforehand in order for us to apply the appropriate discounts.
