Where to photograph in Santorini during Golden Hour! When the sun dips into the Aegean Sea of Santorini you want to make sure you’re in the best spot possible to capture this iconic scene in the Greek Islands. With millions of visitors filling the cliff top paths of Santorini each year, it’s no wonder you’ve probably found this article by googling ‘Where to find the best sunset spot in Santorini?’, you may have even added ‘without crowds’. If you did, I’m totally with you. I can’t stand photographing alongside hordes of tourists and it’s the reason I wanted to write this article to steer you in the right direction! I’ve previously written a guide to the ‘Best Photography Locations on Santorini’, but this time I’m focusing on just the sunset worthy spots. Oia is the most popular location for sunset and that’s because of it’s location right on the north-western tip of the island. That said, most villages located along the rim of the caldera offer some kind of sunset views because they all face west, it’s just a matter of what time of year to visit Santorini to benefit from the direct sun falling into the sea scenario. So,...

Travel in France – Photo spots + Experiences in Provence From the shores of the Mediterranean to the peaks of the alps, France is filled with photogenic natural wonders. When moving to France over two years ago, I had envisioned the atmospheric fresh food markets, the cute villages with colourful window shutters and surviving on a diet of croissants. Let’s just say I was a little blinded by the Hollywood version of living in France, the joie de vivre of all things French surrounding me. To my surprise there is all the movie magic and so much more to France, especially if you’re keen to explore it with your camera. Oh, and don’t worry, there’s still croissants…lots of them, this part is true. The landscapes, the lifestyle, hidden caves, labyrinth like city streets and even islands. Exploring France over a period of two years was like unraveling little chocolate wrappers one by one. Not that I’m someone who eats chocolate by the piece…everyone does blocks right? I was based in a little old apartment in the historic town centre of Aix en Provence, although I dreamt of staying in a luxury villa in southern France. When driving through the countryside...

Things to do in Dubrovnik with your Camera! Few cities conjure up the feeling of centuries past like Dubrovnik. With it’s coastal location, towering fortress, narrow alleys and old city sights, you’re spoilt for choice with things to do in Dubrovnik. Photographers will have a field day capturing the medieval architecture, street scenes and landscapes while historians and Game of Thrones fans can soak up the forts, walls and baroque buildings. When exploring Dubrovnik, I found it was a city that’s creatively inspiring from all angles. You can make a plan for the day but allow plenty of time for aimless wanderings and extended time when you find a photogenic corner that takes your fancy. It’s very easy to get lost and distracted, in a good way! I get a lot of messages from travelers docking in Dubrovnik on a cruise ship wanting to know things to do in Dubrovnik if they only have a few hours, along with others who are staying for a week or more. So, below you’ll find experiences and photogenic things to do in Dubrovnik whether you’ve got two weeks or two hours, it’ll just be a matter of prioritizing which one to do first!...

Far above Arctic Circle sits Norway’s second largest island – Senja. It’s impossible to describe Senja in couple of words; its landscape greatly varies from east to west, hence the island is often called a ‘Norway in miniature’. In eastern part of Senja you’ll find lush green meadows and valleys, dotted by wetlands and small lakes. The western part of Senja however, presents a completely different landscape. The main features of its western coast are countless narrow fjords, in fact when looking at the map, the island looks torn! Reaching far into the ocean are long, mountainous peninsulas. Rugged mountains seem to be rising directly from the ocean; their ridges sharp and rocky. Although Senja’s mountains are not high, they definitely make an incredible impression! Distance-wise, Senja can be visited within a 1 day road trip, but you’ll find it hardly possible to truly soak it all in – the scenery you’ll pass, the colourful villages and amazing viewpoints will all call for a photo, a short walk or a break to take in the view. I’d recommend allowing at least 2-3 days to explore the islands hidden gems. Undoubtedly, you’ll find a piece of heaven when visiting Senja and...
