What you'll do

During this private photo workshop you will be able to create some powerful landscape photographs. We will focus on observing our surroundings and getting inspired on how we can take a powerful picture. Most of our photo tour is in the forest, walking, shooting and discussing what we see and how we can best photograph it. You will be presented with techniques using composition guide, light, shadows, perspective, selective focus, texture and reflections. You will also get accustomed to technical info such as the aperture, shutter speed, iso, and depth of field in order to take control of your camera. I will provide you some informal guiding during our tour but please note that this by no way is considered a thorough formal guiding which is only provided by accredited tour guides.

Pavlos

Hello, travelers of Light! I work as a professional photographer over 20 years. I am the founder of Phototravellers.team offering unique photographic travel tours in and around Athens. I have lived between Rio de Janeiro, Athens, and Stockholm. This diversity of cultures, climates, environments and attitudes on life, has given me openness and the skills for communicating with people and nature and the ability to blend in with the atmosphere in which I take photos. For years now I combine trekking and photographing in the Greek mountains and have gained an expertise on that.
