Get ready for the spring

8 day Photoresk Photo Trip and workshops from May 21st to 28th 2017 for up to 12 participants on the beautiful island of Lesvos, Greece. Covering different genres of photography ranging from Street, Rural Life Photography in the towns and villages, to Nature and Landscapes around this picturesque island. This trip will give you countless opportunities for extraordinary pictures. The weather can be dramatic and the changing colors and light conditions during the day are almost guaranteed every day.

Lesvos is the third largest Greek island, yet it has been unaffected by the mass tourism and is therefore a perfect place to experience the real Greece. The varying landscapes and the numerous activities on the island ensure inspiration for creative work. You can read below the tentative workshop schedule and trip plan.

Learning and sharing

The Photoresk experience is about learning and sharing. Everybody is encouraged to contribute, but we will also give guidance on specific topics. In addition to the day’s photoshoots, there will be sessions with photo reviews as well as conversations on different subjects such as optimal image quality, composition and efficient shooting techniques. To make your pictures stand out, post processing can make a difference, so we will also cover some of different methods and techniques – including HDR.

Is this workshop for me?

There are no specific expectations for the skill level of participants of the Photoresk Photo Trip except that you are passionate about photography.
The Photoresk Photo Trip will include conversations about composition, scene selection, technique, post processing, photo reviews, as well as talks about the pictures taken during the day. This is your opportunity to learn from and get inspired by Photoresk Photo Trip photographer companions.
