Private Full-Day Photo Tour of Athens
Spend a wonderful day discovering the heart of Athens on a private photo tour with a professional local photographer!
My name is Vasilis Germanis. I am a professional (mainly press) photographer with 25 years of experience. My love and passion for my profession and never wanting to do the same thing brought me to a state of having covered all kind of different aspects of professional photography; owning a studio and a professional photo lab delivering fine printing, covering social events, photographing for tourist guides, advertising agencies, architectural, aerial, sports, at 2004 Olympic Games as a photo manager, even as a paparazzo for some time in London, UK, where I had lived for two years.
Somewhere in between, I have had the joy of being given several opportunities to lecture at seminars and photography schools here in Athens. Teaching and volunteering for various groups and communities: Children’s Museum, Scouts of Greece and Fair Trade Hellas. I believe “with teaching you professionally rejuvenate and by volunteering you mentally revitalize”.
News photography has always had my biggest interest and portion of my career, so parallel to all the above I’ve been photographing for several Greek news photo agencies having my work published in newspapers and magazines on my coverage of Greece’s political and domestic highs and lows of the crisis and all other affairs. News photography has made me walk, see, feel and understand every corner of my historically rich, vibrant and cultural birth city. And that reassures that your Photo Walks in Athens with me will be –besides a practical knowledgeable walking photo class -also a great acquaintance of the essential Athens and will give you an authentic city adventure and a rare opportunity to experience it from an insider’s point of view.
My flexibility and ability to adjust to any level of your photographic knowledge will provide you with practical tips you can use straight away. You will be taught how to develop the ‘photographer’s eye’ and see things from a broader perspective, not just in regards to visual perception but also in regards to precise settings and methods to ensure yourself beautiful and atmospheric images of Athens. Photos that will range from urban, people and portraits to architectural details, street life, local culture or action. Your images of Athens to admire and show to your friends.
I am sure you will leave with your spirits and photographic skills developed and enriched!

He's really a pro at what he does and anyone who wants to take home some amazing memories that capture the emotion of the experience of Greece would be wise to choose him to do just that.
Having not enough time to walk and discover the city myself, I chose PhotoWalksinAthens and I didn’t regret it at all!
Vassilis took me to all the beautiful spots of the area of Athens under and around the rock of Acropolis, through a very scenic route with a lot of photo opportunities along the way. While I was free and loose to do my thing, Vassilis revealed to me the right angle from the proper spot, to make a perfect travel shot. He would answer any of my questions, explain to me all the photography rules and technical details in a very simple and practical way making clear in my mind things I was confused with before!
Vassilis is a great resource of tips and hints about the city, too! I used his suggestions for my time in Athens and I didn’t regret it!
I enjoyed my time with PhotoWalksinAthens (and Vassilis’ humor!); I learn a lot about this historic city and came away with impressive travel shots and new techniques to use on my future travels!
