Q & A with filming / editing mini workshop with cinematographer Hector Torra in Chania Crete, Greece.

lifestyle My journal

A while back I had the chance to attend a workshop that helped change my perspective on some core personal and professional aspects in my photography.

 

Best of all I had a chance to make some good friends that I now also call part of my network. One of them is Hector Torra. A cinematographer from Spain with a spirit and humor similar to myself.

 

Hector and his girlfriend, the lovely Carolina came to Crete to visit the island and spend some time together. While here we had a chance to talk shop and try to find ways to potentially work together. In my opinion it is just a matter of time.

In the mean while I asked Hector to share some of the ways he works in shooting, editing and customer service. He was more than happy to do so.

 

We called it a Q & A session with a mini shooting / editing part in the end.

The fresh videographers that attended were mostly from my existing local network in hope of expanding knowledge and to take in some new ideas.

When working in a single market area you can tend to become stale and monotonous. There are many ways to break the mold and stay away from this. One of them is to have an open mind and allow others ideas to blend in with yours.

And that is exactly what Hector did for us. And we thank him for that.

I would like to thank Alcanea Boutique Hotel in the Old Harbor of Chania (A member of Aria Hotels) for their hospitality.

I would also like to thank our couple (Alexandra & Aristomenis) for the filming portion.

And of course to everyone who participated and understood the benefits of such a session.

Finally here is the video that was created during the session:

Behind The Scenes of a commercial lifestyle photo shoot in Chania Crete, Greece
I was recently approached to commercially photo shoot for a new clothing company here in Chania, Crete Greece. The newly formed company called Rice Above Fear is based in the UK and owned by a young Greek form Chania. The company wanted a youthful photo shoot with a lifestyle approach.

Putting together a good crew and models was essential. I always want to be efficient on set, but if we can’t have a good time in the process then why bother. The result i ...
