Sail The Wine Dark Sea - Photography Trip

1 week: Samos to Leros (STWDS-2010)

Join us for Sail The Wine Dark Sea, a photography workshop aboard a 51 foot yacht, and see the Greek isles as did the ancients.

We embark from the harbor at Pythagorio in legendary Samos and make passage to Marathi, home of two Greek families and 500 goats. Marathi is the real thing, a deserted Greek island ripe for exploration. From Marathi, we make the downwind passage to Patmos, former home of St. John and the Cave of the Revelations and one of the most beautiful, holiest monasteries in Greece. From Patmos, we journey to Lipsi with its hundreds of blue domed churches and white sand beaches. From Lipsi, we sail to Leros with its traditional island life, many hidden coves and quirky islanders. From Leros, we make passage south to the sponge island of Kalymnos to explore a 6th century chapel above a hidden cove. Kalymnos is still pure, a magical port-of-call. From Kalymnos, we return to Leros to Lakki Harbor, favored home port of Mussolini with its art deco buildings and the final night of critique and hitting the tavernas.

We shoot the morning light on one island, sail to a new destination at midday and then shoot and explore the evening light at a new destination. Each day brings new photography insights and revelations.

Sail The Wine Dark Sea will include lessons in downloading and processing your RAW files using Photoshop CS-4 and a single critique at Workshop\'s end in Leros.


Accommodation includes sharing a cabin with two berths (and your own private head) aboard a 51 foot yacht. Trip pricing includes all food and local drink for breakfast and lunch aboard ship. We eat out at a different taverna in a new location each evening although this is on our own drachma or Euro. Dinner is not included. Private single berth accommodation available but at additional cost.
