Meteora is a unique experience of the grandeur of nature that connects with history, architecture, and man’s everlasting desire to be with the Divine. This photography workshop in Greece is more than just capturing exquisite landscapes; it’s a chance to see and portray the pilgrimage to the holy place from your own point of view. What's more it's a round trip from/to Athens which keeps you stress free!

Activity Description

Under the guidance of Nikos Kokkas, a seasoned photographer who was previously associated with National Geographic, you’ll be given hands-on photography instructions, integrated talks, edit-and-critique sessions, and photo assignments all packed within one’s day schedule. The goal of the photo workshop is to capture landscapes and cultural photographs and perhaps a bit of portraiture


To begin the 4-hour journey via van to Meteora, the group will meet at 8:00 a.m., at the front of the Greek  Parliament (opposite of Syntagma Square) in Athens. If you are staying in a hotel at the center, the group will gladly pick you up from there. During the drive, you can get to know each other. You can bring an array of questions and answers for each other to prepare you for the surprises in store for you during the photography trip. As soon as you arrive, you can settle in the hotel and enjoy some local food in one of the traditional tavernas in the area. In the afternoon the photographer will guide you to hand-picked locations and pass you on his tips and tricks how to capture the sublime scenery and make pictures that make an impact. The scenery is composed of unique formations of giant suspended sand-rocks of Meteora. Meteora’s rock pillars are decorated with Byzantine monasteries that echo the nun chants, creating an eerie atmosphere in their isolated steep standing. There are various opportunities for amazing landscape photography as you capture the scenery from all possible angles from bottom up to the top of the rock pillars for a panoramic spectacle.

Each day will be followed by a critique and editing review that will be led by your instructor in which there will be exchanging information of shots over your photography assignments.


The second day of your photography trip will have 2 parts. The first is visiting the monasteries and the second is doing selective shots of the landscape. You will focus on monastery life and how it has evolved through time. You will be also mingling with pilgrims & travellers from all over the world and you’ll be seizing this as an opportunity for some intriguing photography compositions and themes.

In the evening, there will be a farewell dinner where in it will give everyone a chance for an overall review of the photography trip.


You depart early in the morning to get back to Athens but you have the option to continue from there to your next nearby destination along with your memories, and your newfound perspective which broadened and refined your photography skills.
