SANTORINI ISLAND ODOIPORIKON-WHERE CURIOSITY MEETS THE IMAGE

 
ODOIPORIKON means a constant journey, discovering a world of five senses flooded with light.

Tzeli Hadjidimitriou, the well-known photographer and travel writer, invites you on a Photography Odoiporikon. This journey takes you through the island of Santorini and on a personal artistic, spiritual journal as well. The relationship of the soul and the light will reflect in your photographs.

This travel photography workshop provides a platform for those who seek to know a place – it’s history, people, tradition and culture – through the lens of a camera. Rather than being a laboratory for learning the latest techniques in digital photography, participants will endeavor to capture the atmosphere of a foreign country. We’ll learn how to “see” and how to compose an image in our minds before taking a picture. We will get to know a place by learning how to capture and see the light on a face, a landscape or an object, and how to connect this place with ourselves through photography.

Santorini will offer us opportunities to photograph landscapes, seascapes, villages, architecture, interiors, people and their traditional way of life - but most of all, you will experience how to see and capture the amazing Greek light. You will learn to frame light and composition to capture richer, more inspiring images. And your classroom will be one of the world’s most beautiful natural landscapes.

The workshop is appropriate for photographers of all experience levels and specialties. Digital and film cameras are welcome equally.

Each workshop will differ, depending on the weather conditions and group’s photographic impulse of the moment. But we can promise to offer three mornings and three afternoons of photographic expeditions across the grand vistas and secret paths of majestic Santorini.

And we can promise accommodation in some of the island’s most beautiful villas, and meals and wine-tastings of the best of Santorini’s traditional cuisine.

Note: tailored itineraries can be offered for groups of five or more that register. For further information contact info@odoiporikon.com

True creativity arises from a union with the divine, with the mystical and the unknowable. Technique, expertise and knowledge are tools; the key is to abandon oneself to the energy that fuels the birth of all things.
