Santorini needs not much introduction: beautiful white nested houses in harmonic shapes and ever-changing arrangements, blue churches, a truly unique light on the deep blue Aegean Sea surrounded by steep, colorful volcanic cliffs... Santorini Island is an all-time classic for photographers. There is probably no single picture book about Greece and the Mediterranean that does not have at least a few photos from Santorini.
It has some of the most picturesque examples of Cycladic architecture, a grand and unique volcanic landscape. But it also has a much less known side of rural life and living traditions of Greek island life.
This tour can be fully customized and arranged at custom dates for individuals and small groups on request.
  • Unique photo opportunities for great landscape, nature, architecture and traditional life
  • Some of the best light in the world
  • Expert photographer guides (Tobias Schorr or Tom Pfeiffer) - both speak also Greek!
  • Explore unknown gems of Santorini
  • Small group sizes
  • Flexible program adapted to your preferences
  • Beautiful accommodation in great setting
  • Delicious local food and wine

Santorini photo tour - 8 days sample itinerary

Day 1-8: Photography on Santorini
There is no particular itinerary and each tour will be different. According to weather and light, as well as your photo preferences, we take you around the island on excursions by car, boat and usually short hikes to the most interesting and scenic locations, celebrations and whatever comes up.
Quite often, we will use the "Golden Light" in the morning, as well as the warm afternoon and evening light and the "Blue Hour", while during the day, we have time to go exploring locations and discover new facets of the island group.
