Local festival with a photo expo at Zymvragou Chania Crete, Greece

My journal

A few months back I was asked to participate in a photo expo by donating a framed picture. Organized by Mr. Archontakis Ioannis the expo took part last night August 10th 2016.

More of Mr. Archontakis work can be viewed at olivepress ART FACTORY worth visiting when in the area.

 

The location of Zymvragou, of the municipality of Platanias was magical. And old neoclassical building that used to be the village school has be restored and turned into a photo and cinema museum.

And best of all on the same evening the locals were hosting a local festival with food and live music.

A fine way to spend the evening with family on the island of Crete.

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

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.

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 ...
