Our Santorini photography tour 'Mediterranean Legend in White and Blue' will take place in April 2025 with Astrid McGechan. We are thrilled to be returning to this spectacular Greek island for what promises to be a feast of photographic opportunities when the wild flowers start to bathe many of the hillsides in resplendent colour.

Many of the villages are perched on the edge of one of the most spectacular volcanic calderas on the planet. The magnificent views from the edge of the caldera take in picturesque villages scattered with the exquisite blue domed churches for which the Greek island is famed.

Santorini Photography Tour - Mediterranean Legend in White and Blue

Santorini Photography Tour - Mediterranean Legend in White and Blue
Santorini lies at the southern end of the Cyclades group of Greek islands, the last stopping off point before Crete. It has been continually re-shaped over the centuries by a series of violent volcanic eruptions. The current archipelago of 5 islands surrounds a huge salt-water caldera. The small island of Néa Kaméni rose from the sea in a series of eruptions in the eighteenth century. It still hosts an active crater, though its last major eruption was in 1956.

The volcanic setting is simply awesome, so much so that an image of it was used by the Greek Tourist Agency to represent Greece as a whole. Mythic and literary connections abound; the main island Thira has been linked to the mythical lost city of Atlantis and Jules Verne famously featured Santorini in his book, Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea.

Whitewashed houses with barrel roofs appear to drip down the cliff faces like melting ice cream, until the land gives way to a 900-foot drop into the blue sea below. Every village is dotted with blue domed churches and bell towers, which are one of the most instantly recognizable icons of Greece, and synonymous with Santorini. These will no doubt be favoured subjects for our photography.

We will be out photographing at both dawn and dusk, making the most of the crossover light. The island boasts the kind of sunsets that will live in your mind forever.

Although some of our locations are within walking distance of the hotel, we will be travelling in our own vehicle to explore other areas of the main island, where we will explore beautiful traditional villages, ancient windmills and dramatic volcanic coastline.

Our tour will be based in a comfortable hotel near Oia; an ideal centre from which to explore the incredible island of Santorini. We have chosen this time of year in order to give us an excellent chance of having a variety of weather conditions and lighting. Some of the walking will be strenuous, particularly in the steep-sided villages, so a good level of fitness is required from all participants. This tour will also give you free time to relax and enjoy the delights that the island has to offer.
