“Happy is the man who, before dying, has the good fortune to sail the Aegean Sea. Many are the joys of this world–women, fruit, ideas. But to cleave that sea in the gentle autumnal season, murmuring the name of each islet, is to my mind the joy most apt to transport the heart of man into paradise. Nowhere else can one pass so easily and serenely from reality to dream.”
– Nikos Kazantzakis
It all started a few months ago, as me and my friend Massimiliano, a great photographer and profound connoisseur of Greece, were vacationing together in Kos.
Probably under the influence of the beautiful sunlight and too much retsina, I suggested that we could join our passion for photography and our love for the Mediterranean landscape, its cultures, and its food and try to share it with as many people as possible.
Fast-forward a few months of brainstorming and strategizing and here we are today, officially launching out Mediterranean Photo Tours venture with a lot of trepidation.
Mediterranean Photo Tours offers exclusive photographic vacations in the best locations of the Mediterranean.
We strive to provide our guests with a holistic experience that combines sight-seeing, photography, and savouring the soul of a place through its culture, language, and cuisine.
At present, we are planning one six day long workshop in the Cyclades Islands, Greece, for the fall of 2015. While the exact dates and itinerary are still to be defined, you can use the form at the bottom of our home page to subscribe to our mailing list and be notified when the workshop is finally announced.
What can you expect?
We will provide you with an all-inclusive experience that comprises:
- Photo tuition by two established landscape and travel photographers with field experience.
- Being part of a small group, ensuring you get the attention of the tutors.
- Upscale accommodation in the best hotels.
- Savouring the typical food and wines that a country has to offer.
- Local transportation, using private vehicles whenever possible.
- Evening post-processing and critique sessions.
