Tinos, our favourite island, is a unique travel and photography destination. Besides the typical characteristics of the Cyclades Islands, Tinos is defined by rich history and a long tradition in the arts, which impart a genuine, refined character to the island. Combined with diversified scenery, distinctive villages, a multitude of amazing beaches, exquisite food and the famous Greek light of the Aegean Sea, Tinos is certainly a one-of-a-kind photography travel experience.
The idea throughout your photography travel workshop is to have daily photo shoots that we can view and discuss at the end of the day. Each day we will take one or two tours around the island to visit designated sites and work on specified photo projects. Our aim is to cover as many areas of photography as possible, such as archaeological, street, architectural, landscape and portrait photography.
Although instructors will provide technical tips and tricks throughout the duration of your photography holiday, the workshop will emphasise on what makes images interesting rather than simply technically correct. Provisions will be made so that we may download and quick-view images on a daily basis. Instructors will be available to comment on your images individually. Furthermore, there will be two long group sessions -halfway and at the end of the photo workshop- to review the photos taken by all participants, to discuss them technically and aesthetically, and to explore post-processing options.
Upon registering, you will be contacted by the instructors via e-mail. You will be sent a short questionnaire and a multiple choice test to establish your skill level as well as your photographic needs and wants. This will help instructors prepare for individual counselling.

– Accommodation in a countryside traditional hotel or houses (depends on the availability by the moment of your registration)
– All transfers with private cars to the referred scheduled places.
