-Guide you through the whole process in order to get the perfect exposure settings and get the best results out of your camera!
-Introduce you technics to get sharp stars.
-I am going to show you the Milky Way and you will be amazed how easily you can see it with your naked eyes after spending some time in the dark.
-Secret places like Greek old Church, Wreck ship, Lighthouse and more.

-Milky Way is more visible half of the month, when the moon is not so bright. However, we can take amazing pictures as well the second half of the month where the moon is bright and we have the beautiful moonlight lighting the scene!

-If you are interested to capture only the Milky Way or only the moonlight, let me know before!

This workshop is subject to the weather conditions, and can be cancelled if the night is cloudy/rainy and does not permit star observation.

Hi I am Chris! I am a professional landscape photographer and I have been traveling for several years in different places all around the world working shooting landscapes! One of my favourite type of photography is Astrophotography!
Astrophotography is challenging and usually people give up on it because it's really difficult to find a place that has low light pollution. However, I was born and raised in Thessaloniki and I know the best places to get some amazing results!

If you are looking for THE BEST GIFT EVER: here you go! I got this Astrophotography workshop as a birthday present from my wife and it was excellent! Chris picked us up in the city and took us to a place at the sea where you can see the milky way without light pollution. By the way he talked about the stars, his hobby and his camera you could feel the fascination. We had a great time together and he even fixed tea and original Greek sweets for us. We took wonderful pictures together and ended eating Gyros in the middle of the night. It just felt like meeting friends. Thank you so much Chris! We hope to see you soon in Stockholm at our place!

Wow! What an experience far away from the typical mainstream-tourist-offers and out of the ordinary! If you want to hang out with a local to discover amazing photo spots in the night, Chris is your man! He is such a kind and professional guy who is patient to explain everything you need to know until you‘ve shot your very own perfect picture. More than this it‘s fun hanging out with him at night outside in the nature, listening to all his interesting stories about the land, people and the culture from the view of a native. Needless to mention, that of course, everything is safe and well organized. You experience much more than just taking fantastic pictures at night. It‘s a full package of impressions. I highly recommend this workshop if you search for an experience that will live long in your memory! Thank you so much, Chris! It was a pleasure to me! Cheers!

Chris was an amazing and very knowledgeable host. He knew amazing places to visit to get the perfect shots, and he was very personable and easygoing. This is a very unique experience that you can’t find in most other places. The combination of beautiful photos, an amazing host, and unique settings (I.e seeing a sunken ship) made this a fantastic experience and a must do!!!

Wonderful astrophotography experience only Chris as a local to that area would ever know. I’m lucky as the weather was good and it was a really dark night. I managed to photographed the Milky Way with local backdrops - a Church, a sunken ship and a campervan! Which is so amazing because it mixes something so earthly with something so cosmic. I recommend this experience.
