Yes, everything is conducted in plain and simple English (although you are most welcome to learn a few basic Greek phrases if you wish to). Even if you are not a native English speaker, as long as you can read and understand the contents of this website, you will be more than able to join us in one of our incredible photo – adventures.
First of all, lots of love and enthusiasm for Photography, Travelling and Nature. You will be not spending your time in a boring classroom but in all sorts of relaxed, fun and educative places and situations. We will not be trying to impress you with boring scientific photographic terminologies but truly enhance your photo and travel experience.
Of course there is! If you read a little bit more carefully, you will see that there are some really major differences between our tours and those of the competition. First of all, we always provide a minimum four – star accommodation in our prices, along with breakfast, lunch and dinner. You will agree that this is a very big difference from hostels and just breakfast, right? We also cover all expenses relating to entrance fees for museums, archaeological sites and just about everything else that is included in each tour. But the most important difference between us and the biggest part of the competition, is that our lead instructor is a top class professional photographer, one of the very best in the country (having 25 years of experience and having worked with magazines such as National Geographic, GEO, National Geographic Traveler and numerous others) 24 hours a day, seven days a week at your service. We sincerely think that, according to all the aforementioned facts, it is absolutely logical that there will be some minor price differences from time to time. We believe that we are in the position to offer a complete new meaning to an All-Inclusive and amazing photo – experience!
Of course we can! Just fill up the form in the Contact us page and we’ll find a way to work it out!
They can be very similar because on both occasions you will be taken to amazing places, having expert photo guidance each and every moment you desire. All levels of photographic skills are welcome on both, photo tours and workshops alike. One main difference is that during a workshop, special emphasis is given on learning new things and new techniques. Photo tours can also be like this, but in a much more relaxed and holiday oriented way. To put it simple, with a little less work…
Our instructors, right upon registering, will contact you via e-mail. You will also receive a short questionnaire and a multiple-choice test in order to help us establish your photographic skill level as well as your photographic needs and wants. This will greatly help us to prepare the right course and the ideal materials for the best possible individual teaching and counseling.
You can be rest assured that we will be covering all the basics, whether it has to do with Photography or perhaps a better knowledge of your recently purchased gear. Everybody has to start from somewhere and even if there are no other participants in the very same beginner’s level as you (a very rare occasion that is), we guarantee that there will be absolutely no single moment that you will be feeling “amateur” among “professionals”.
If you can carry it, it’s fine with us. Whatever you can bring on the plane. We expect people with large suitcases, big and full camera bags, tripods and lots of extras. In any case, you can always send us an email and we will advise you about everything concerning our ways and means of transport.
Of course there is! You can read our Terms & Conditions here, as well as before purchasing any of our workshop tours.
Greece is part of the “Schengen Agreement” which translates as a complete freedom of movement between all European countries. So, European citizens do not need a visa. US, Australian and Canadian citizens can visit our country for 90 days, without a visa but with a valid passport. Travelers from other parts of the planet are most welcome but will probably need a visa.
Well, yes and no. We do encourage people to use cameras with interchangeable lenses -mirrorless or DSLRs, a wide and a telephoto lens, a light tripod, extra memory cards and a laptop-, but this is not obligatory. In fact, there are some pretty amazing compact cameras out there, with one – inch sensors or less, that can deliver excellent results. At the end of the day, it is the image that counts and not the pixels. We always focus on the photographer’s skills first, and then on his equipment.
Our Photo Tours are organized in such a way that everyone can have fun, relax and enjoy the sightseeing and the local cuisine, always in good company. Each friend or family member will have to pay for his/her seat as all of the rest photographers – participants but there is a -10% discount of the workshops price (Applied to multi-day photography workshops only, Not for for the 1-2 Day Photo tours. And one last thing. Please don’t forget to advise him / her to bring a camera as well. There is absolutely no chance he or she will not want to give it a go as well!
