If you love travelling and photography then why not combine your passions, and get creative with your camera in Greece!

Kensington and Chelsea College is running a week-long photography course that takes you out of the classroom, and into the beautiful surroundings of Syros to capture the charms of its unspoiled landscapes, and authentic traditional Greek villages.

During a full and busy week students on this amazing learning holiday will develop skills in landscape and environmental photography, with the option of also learning about underwater photography, and reportage photography through candid shots of island life and culture.

The course is taught by professional photographers, Niki Sianni, who graduated from the London College of Printing, and Bruce Tanner, who is Head of Photography at the college and a published author on the subject of photography.

The course combines lecture based sessions each day with practical work and tutorials. Throughout the week learners will also have access to large amounts of individual support and one-to-one sessions, and will be set various projects to develop their skills in a range of technical topics being covered throughout the week, including medium and panoramic format, advanced metering, flash and pin-hole photography.

Students will also take part in several trips around the island to inspire creativity, and will have time to pursue their own personal photographic projects during the week.

The course runs from May 19 – 27. The fees range from £490 – £580, which includes 8 nights accommodation, tuition hours of around 35 hours, transfers if you travel with the group, some material costs, a meal on the first evening and food during a picnic trip towards the end of the week.
