Autumn is an excellent time to visit mainland Greece, temperatures around the north in the mid to lower-20’s, the weather is generally sunny but can be a little changeable at times, providing drama to the landscape scenery; furthermore, the terrain is becoming bathed within its autumn coat.
The photographic aspect to the workshop will help you take better travel photos, traditional professional landscape photography (not over-edited, or shooting to replace skies, natural photography), and also learn, or advance, your night photography, and shoot the Milky Way.
The trip accommodation comprises of high end hotels and luxury apartments/villas; as with all Ollie’s workshops, the accommodation is first class.
All Ollie’s workshops operate with small groups, and maximum of 5 participants to ensure a dedicated level of photographic tuition and guidance.
