K. Yellow Photo Workshops on the volcanic landscapes of Santorini. This photo workshop is a project for all those who love photography, professionals and amateurs, even 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 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, connect and 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 a true essence of the place.
This project is all about connection! The question is how to to elevate these photo expeditions on 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.
An extraordinary, full of fun and affordable photo workshop on Santorini Island! Spend 4 nights and 5 days with K. Yellow, explore the best of what Santorini’s volcanic environment has to offer to photographers and learn new things around photography!

Day 1: Imerovigli – Fira
First day on Santorini Island sets in a meeting at a stunning small hotel. During lunch we will discuss in detail the entire program of the 5-day photo workshop. In the afternoon we set out for an amazing day of photography throughout the island’s largest and most popular villages of Imerovigli and Fira.
Day 2: Explore the North and South part of Santorini with a small sense of Black and White
This will be the most intense day, 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.
In the late afternoon we drive to the unseen part on Santorini. We will focus on architecture and geology, exploring hidden gems on the south part of the island!
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. Departing from Vlichada’s marina and sailing past the ancient city of Akrotiri and 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 conditions which are perfect for observation, dazzling photographs under an extraordinary variety of natural light and colours that offer 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.
Day 4: Night Photography
This workshop will guide you through the art of night photography, providing all the knowledge you need to produce majestic night photos around the island. It begins with an one hour introduction to Night Photography. We then proceed with photo shootings at four different locations around the island and end up with a two-hour post-processing session on the last day. Importantly, there will be a focus on capturing the stunning geological formations of Santorini and the extraordinary night landscapes including a session of architectural photography through an exploration in some of the most famous traditional settlements.
Day 5: Editing and Discussion
On the last day together we will relax at our hotel and discuss photography, as well as what you have captured during our workshop.
