WHY WE LOVE IT

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 opportunities.

DAY 1

Your 4 hours photo trip to Meteora starts at 8.00 p.m. with a car that accommodates comfortably the respective number of passengers (hotel pickup also possible for central Athens’ hotels). During the drive you’ll have the opportunity to discuss with the photographer your goals in photography and an array of questions, queries and answers will arise in preparation for the surprises that your photography tour will give you. As soon as you settle in at the hotel, you will enjoy some local food in one of the traditional tavernas around. Then the afternoon is all yours to capture the sublime scenery. A scenery composed of unique formations of giant suspended sand-rocks! Meteora’s rock pillars are topped with Byzantine monasteries that echo the nun chants to create an eerie atmosphere in their isolated and steep standing. Millions of opportunities for superb landscape photography as you capture the scenery from all possible perspectives from the bottom up to the top for a panoramic spectacle.

Each day will be followed by a critique and editing review led by your instructor through exchanging info of your shots over your photography assignments.

DAY 2

The second day of your photography tour will be divided between visiting the monasteries and some more selective shots of the landscape. You will focus on monasteries’ life – wherever you are allowed to– as evolved in time, mingling with pilgrims & travellers from all over the world and taking the opportunity for some intriguing photography compositions and themes.

In the evening an overall review of your photography trip will take place.

DAY 3

You depart early in the morning to get back to Athens.
