K.Yellow Photo Workshops on Volcanic Landscapes | 1-5 October 2018
This photo workshop is about a project for all those who love photography, professionals or not or even for those who wish to have creative vacations on volcanic landscapes.
The idea for the K.Yellow Photo Workshop on Volcanic Landscapes started from a research proposal in the university of Central Saint Martins on how to share the beauty of volcanic landscapes with other people not only for the sake of making beautiful photographs but with the aim to share, to connect, and to communicate. Photography has always been a type of communication and a way of sharing ideas and experiences. The main idea is to engage theoretical and practical knowledge and to help people explore the art of photography in volcanic landscapes. The program is carefully planned and designed only in volcanic areas in order to take advantage of the best light conditions and have the true essence of the place.
This project is all about connection! The question is how to to elevate these photo expeditions in Santorini, to the next level and create a network on other volcanic islands around the world, so the main “connection” of these workshops would be the volcanic environment. The appearance of volcanoes around the world has to do with some major processes of change on the planet. So, instead of simply taking a picture of stunning scenery, we will also highlight the environmental aspect. The goal is not only introduce something new from the aesthetic artistic point of view, but also with the use for the people and explore the volcanic environment from a photography point of view.

This day will be the most intense one, in order to take the opportunity of the best light conditions of the day! We will start early in the morning exploring the north part of the island including one of the most picturesque villages of Santorini Oia (pronounced “Ia”.) The village is situated on top of an impressive cliff, known for its charming houses in narrow streets, blue domed churches and sun-bathed verandas.

Day (3) Sailing around the crater – Storytelling photo workshop
After breakfast, we will depart for the southeastern side of the island in a private sailing boat. In details, the departure starts from Vlichada’s Marina and sails past the Ancient City of Akrotiri as well as the Red and White Beaches with a direction towards the Indian Head Mountain and Venetian Lighthouse to end up in the picturesque Caldera.
The marvelous dry climate and continuous sunshine create year around conditions which are perfect for observation, dazzling photographs under an extraordinary variety of natural lights and colors that give us the exceptional advantage of reaching the interior of the volcano by boat. So, instead of simply taking pictures of a stunning scenery, this photo workshop will focus on storytelling photography while walking on the volcanic land.

It begins with an one hour introduction to Night Photography and Landscape Photography.

Importantly, there will be a focus on capturing the stunning geological formations of Santorini and the extraordinary night landscapes on the volcanic island including a session of architectural photography through an exploration in some of the most famous traditional settlements.
