i would assume that every photographer dream of doing a shoot in santorini, considered one of the most beautiful islands in the world. this island is home to the little white structures hanging on the cliff. if you’ve got a friend who has been to this island, i am pretty sure he or she has a selfie with this white buildings on the background. but you will never appreciate this place more if you’ve never been there. there’s more to santorini than these blue-capped structures. santorini is an island meant to be explored.
i had a chance to visit the island last quarter of last year. i thought i’d appreciate it less because i am still in nirvana after exploring the beautiful cities of venice, amalfi coast, positano and prague. but i was totally wrong, santorini has its own character and charm. i enjoyed the many aspects of it. driving around the island and witnessing sunset in different areas made me realized that santorini has a life of its own. no wonder it was not even affected by greece’s bankruptcy.
i’m sure you’ve seen the venice engagement session i featured here. that was a beautiful shoot and i know to top it would be difficult especially i am shooting the same couple. i want this santorini shoot to stand out but not totally overpowering that venice experience.
scroll down and see santorini in both familiar and unfamiliar pespective.
