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:

A holiday photo walk around Chania Crete.
Walking around the town of Chania near the end of the year one gets a chance to live some of the traditions here in Greece. First thing you will notice and feel is that Christmas isn’t as big of a deal as it is in other parts of the world. Here in Greece Easter is more celebrated and way more festive. Still the spirit is out there and people have a good time. Another noticeable and pleasant aspect is the weather. Especially here on Crete, if you want bellow zero temperatures you will have to drive up into the mountains and due to the high altitude (up to 2453m) even see some snow. But down at sea level temperatures rarely drop into t ...
