Full description
After pickup from your hotel right before the sun rises, your photographic journey begins. After heading to the first of 3 photo locations, you’ll begin the photography when the sun is near the horizon, reducing the glare of direct light and giving you a chance to capture the magical views just after sunrise. All the while, a professional photographer will give you tips and tricks to capture the best shots possible. Designed for all who love photography, professional or not, your excursion allows you to capture extraordinary landscapes, unique geological formations, and the iconic white marble of Santorini’s architecture. As the golden glow of the sunrise reaches its peak, you’ll culminate the tour in Oia, one of the most famous, and beautiful, locales on Santorini. With more stunning photos than you’ll know what to do with, your tour culminates with convenient drop off at your hotel, or any other point on the driving route.

Konstantina was a great teacher. She was able to help both of us get the best shot despite having two different camera brands. She drove us around to different locations to get the best light and a variety of shots. And as a bonus we stopped at a wonderful bakery for coffee and delicious pastry.

Konstantina met me on time and we drove to the Profit Ilias lookout point, just below the summit with its monastery. The sun seemed to take forever to rise and when it did it was pretty hazy. We took some photos there and then towards Pyrgos and Oia. We drove into Pyrgos for coffee and milk pie (I think that's what they were called - very lightly sweetened custard centre with flakey pastry outer) and chatted in one of the squares there before our final stop. This stop was just next to the beach and had some gorgeous shapes carved by the wind into the soft pumice and now used by nesting birds. The light was still surreal, almost blending the sea and the sky into one. I think because we were chatting so much the tour lasted an hour longer than intended but it was a very enjoyable time. Obviously when I got back to the hotel the photos I had created in my head were not matched by what I'd actually taken but any fault was mine.

Learn to capture a view most never see

Konstantina was a wonderful teacher and guide. She picked me up early and we drove to the highest point on Santorini to photograph the sunrise directly, and the full curve of the island as the rising sun washed over it. She taught me a number of techniques, giving me new insights on my existing understanding of aperture and shutter speed settings. We then worked on trying different perspectives photographing the unique volcanic formations along Black Beach from a variety of angles. I loved working with Konstantina and can't wait to take a class with her in London!
