On this 6-Day photography workshop Expedition Summer Class we will be combining great parts of three other workshops from our list (Ancient Attica, Ancient & Medieval Peloponnese and the Greek Island of Aegina workshop). Amazing sightseeing along with comprehensive photography lessons and techniques with the biggest possible variation. Archaeological photography, landscape photography, architectural photography, street photography and so much more in a 6-day Greek tour of a lifetime. From the great hill of the Parthenon to the temple of Apollo in Corinth and from the walls of the largest castle in the country to one of the most beautiful traditional towns in Greece (Nafplio), we will be exploring, taking pictures, learning dozens of new tricks and techniques, tasting the local cuisine and getting to know the Greek way of living.
Furthermore, we will take a short trip to Aegina, one of the most beautiful islands in the Saronic Gulf, to photograph the temple of Afaia, one of the best preserved monuments of the ancient times, walk around the beautiful and traditional old city, relax by the sea and taste local delicacies. For a photographic glimpse to the modern side of everyday Athens, we will be doing a lot of street photography, get familiar with the center and downtown of the capital, before we begin our journey to Sounio and the temple of Poseidon. There, we will photograph one of the best sunsets in the world, talk about mythology and practise our photographic skills in low light conditions.
Along with all of the above great stuff, there are going to be simple but essential Photoshop lessons, HDR demonstration, portfolio reviews and, above all, an interesting, fun and educative time with our photography instructors and tour guides. The best parts of three different tours, combined in one excellent travel and photographic experience…
Making the complete round and photo tour of all of the Peloponnese, an area of Greece which gathers so many important monuments and places of natural beauty, what the visitor really experiences is an incredible journey through time, in a period that covers, at least for the areas included in the photo trip, almost four millennia of History and Culture.
Having given the same amount of time and effort, in shooting both classical antiquities and the areas that flourished during the Byzantine period, we will meet ancient cities like Corinth, we will go to the exact spot where the ancient Olympic Games took place, we will walk to amazing sites that only recently have come to light, such as the ancient Messini, which is one of the greatest photographic stops of this All-Inclusive photography workshop.
Travelling through centuries, we shall witness the rise and fall of Byzantium, the powerful forts of the Greeks and Venetians (Acrocorinth, Methoni, Monemvasia and many more), we will photograph the places that stood against the armies of the Crusaders and we will go into the humble church where the last emperor of the Byzantine empire swore to protect the people of Constantinople.
We will walk in medieval streets, next to millennia old temples, alongside traditional settlements of 19th century Greece. All this, in an all-inclusivemagical trip of exploration and discovery, filled with unknown photo “treasures” that you will remember and cherish for the years to come…
