A Photographic Adventure Exploring the History, Culture & Food
of the Peloponnese Peninsula
November 7 - 16, 2024
The word photography comes from the Greek “phos graphis,” meaning “drawing with light.”
Join us for 9 amazing and inspiring days as we draw with light using the beautiful and historic Peloponnese Peninsula in southern Greece as our backdrop.
Our adventure begins and ends in Athens and includes a visit to the iconic Acropolis. With the olive, orange and lemon harvest in full swing, though, we’ll move quickly further south to the “real” Greece. From its picturesque coastline dotted with fishing towns to olive and orange groves and ancient landmarks like Olympia and Epidaurus, the Peloponnese region is a photographer’s dream.
Every day will be packed with photographic opportunities, with master photographer Alan Ross at your side providing photographic know-how and expertise in a light-hearted and supportive environment.Whatever your style or format, Alan is dedicated to helping you merge vision, passion and craft so that you capture the images that best reflect your experience.
Joining Alan is Daniel Rosca, a Romanian photographer and guide with extensive experience touring Greece. Daniel will coordinate all aspects of the trip, making sure things run smoothly and that our itinerary is maximized for the best photographic opportunities and cultural and historical experiences.
Late fall is one of the best times to visit Greece…there are fewer tourists and temperatures during the day hover around 60 or 70 degrees, ideal for traveling and being outdoors.
