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



What to expect

We visit just before sunrise, the perfect spot on top of a historical hill that provides us with breathtaking panoramic views including the Acropolis temple, Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the New Acropolis Museum, the National Observatory, the Hill of Lycabettus, the city’s mountain line and sea, all lit by the beautiful Mediterranean sunrise light!

In this photo experience, I will guide you into specialised photo techniques and discuss composition, exposure methods, blue and golden hours, so you will come up with outstanding magical photos of Athens.
Also, I will introduce you to my city from this high-up vantage point giving you historical facts, stories “behind the story” and info and suggestions to use at your own time!

This is a great experience open to all!
Bring your DSLR camera, mirrorless, point-and-shoot or even your mobile phone!
I will bring espresso, juice, cake and fruits!


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 comfortable walking shoes are suggested. It is a 10-minute ascending walk from our meeting point to the top of the hill. It’s a slight elevation on a stone’s pathway and a few steps (landings). Our spot is a rocky small area with a few even surfaces to stand and set your tripod.
