Capturing Athens: 2-day food, styling & photography workshop

910.00

Take a break from the bleak and grey November skies and join me and Eleni from The Foodie Corner for an amazing 2-day workshop in sunny Athens! Not only will you get to enjoy the city, eat some wonderful food and visit some stunning venues, you will also learn how to build beautiful still lives and create better imagery for your website, business, blog or Instagram.

I'm so excited to offer you this workshop in one of the world's most ancient and historic cities and of course a place full of culinary delights. Together we will explore the city and its markets, sample amazing food, create some beautiful still lives and learn about photography. 

Arriving on Thursday, we will spend the evening getting to know each other over a delicious dinner in the city centre. On Friday morning we will take a short drive into the countryside to visit our first workshop venue which is nestled amongst vineyards. There you will learn about photography, including manual settings, and styling basics. You will get to practice your new skills in this quiet and serene environment as well as receive a food preparation demonstration which in itself offers another amazing photography opportunity. 

On Saturday we will explore the vibrant and lively main market of Athens, take in the sights and smells of the busy streets and watch everyday life surrounding us. This is where you will also have a chance to put some of your newfound camera skills into practice in a real-life environment. Lunch will consist of traditional street food before heading to our next venue: a beautiful neoclassical building where the sunlight floods through big windows. This peaceful place is the perfect environment to take a closer look at the editing process to help you make the most of your photos. After all the work, we will take a short break to freshen up before heading to the coast for a stroll around the yacht marina and a delicious seafood dinner. Could there be a better way to relax and wind down after a couple of busy days? 

Take a peek at the last workshop Eleni ran in Greece HERE and HERE and you will see just how magical the experience will be!

  • operating your camera in manual settings
