This 5-day photo workshop in Athens is meant for the photo aficionados, the skilled or less skilled amateurs that want to visit the city from a different perspective. A photo professional has selected a wide range of areas, also less touristic ones and outside the city, and subjects that can both enhance your photo abilities and connect you more deeply with the city and its people.
Photography is a form of art is an expression of liberty, so the group itself chooses some of its favorite destinations and subjects among the suggested ones. One of the aims of this workshop is also to create a small photo community of the participants that will keep in touch and last in time, allowing constant peer reviewing, exchange of ideas and knowledge and of course personal relations. One time per year an exhibition with a selection of the best photos taken during the workshops is held in Athens with its authors being invited to the inauguration.
