“Let there be light! Said Liberty, and like sunrise from the sea, Athens arose!”
Percy Bysshe Shelley, English Romantic poet

What to expect

We will discuss composition, exposure techniques, blue and golden hours and you will come up with breath taking panoramic cityscape photographs of  Athens including the Acropolis temple, the New Acropolis Museum, the Hill of Lecavittos and parts of the city-even the sea, lit by the beautiful Mediterranean sunrise light!
This is such a great experience open to all! Bring your dslr camera, mirrorless, point and shoot or even your mobile phone.


What to bring

You will be photographing using long exposures, so a tripod is kind of mandatory.  We can provide a rental option.
Owning a remote shutter release will be a bonus but not a necessity!
We will meet and walk up a small hill while it is still dark so a headlight or even your smartphones’ torch will come in handy!
I will bring water and snacks!



Photograph the sunrise with PhotoWalksinAthens.com and improve your photographic skills along with your health at the same time!

Did you know that you can benefit from watching the day begin or end? Enjoying the light at its most colorful and varying is the perfect opportunity to slow down, center your mind, and de-stress.
Anytime you can slow down your rhythms and take a pause, make your mind quiet and just enjoy the moment is a positive thing. Our usual day demands so much time rushing, worrying and ticking off items on the to-do list that very easily we get wrapped into a dangerous spiral of stress. Watching a sunrise can help with your mental and physical health, as researchers have found a connection between early morning light exposure and regulating one’s metabolism. The sun can recharge you. It consists ultraviolet light which the body needs for optimum health. The sun stimulates the production of melanin and the metabolism of the body.

What is better then than joining our “Sunrise” photo tour in historical Athens and combine your beloved activity of photography with some personal healing?
