CREATING STUNNING TRAVEL VIDEOS AND PHOTOGRAPHS!
Message from Pro Photographer Mark Hemmings and Filmmaker Greg Hemmings - 
"The both of us are thrilled to finally be doing a travel photo & video workshop together, and it’s our desire that you come along for the ride. We have been teaching camera work, both photo and video, for almost 15 years now. We love sharing our knowledge, and we couldn’t think of a better location to do so than Greece. We hope to see you this coming May soaking in the Mediterranean sun! Sincerely, Greg and Mark Hemmings"
DO YOU STRUGGLE WITH CREATING TRAVEL VIDEOS OR EDITING YOUR TRAVEL PHOTOS AFTER A TRIP OR VACATION?
  • TECHNICAL: Maybe you take really well-composed photos & videos, but have no idea what all the buttons and dials are for on your camera or mobile device. Or maybe you feel you could create great videos  and  dynamic images, but the technical aspects of editing are holding you back.
  • ARTISTIC: Or maybe you are really good at camera technology and editing, but struggle with the artistic aspects of how to compose photos and video clips. How do I use light, color, and design elements to create a fantastic end-product? 
If you are either of the above, you are not alone! So many people either struggle with the technical side or artistic side of photography. However we have a perfect solution for you, and we are very excited to tell you all about it!
Internationally recognized pro filmmakers/photographers Greg and Mark Hemmings and Kefi Travel Club's Greece expert John Simon have teamed up to give you the very best of the best . . . full photographic and video instruction while enjoying a relaxing adventure in stunningly beautiful Greece!
Did you know that you can achieve far greater photographic results in a different country than your own? Its true . . . when you are away from the familiar, creatively speaking almost anything is possible. Your senses are alive, and your appreciation of your surroundings leads you to creative excellence. This Greece workshop will radically enhance your photo and video taking abilities!

But that's not all . . . it's great to be able to capture amazing images and video clips, but how to do share them with the world? We've come up with a system of image and video capture PLUS photo and video editing that works on all platforms. iPhone, Android, DSLR's, Mirrorless, Mac and PC . . . regardless of your gear, we will be able to all work on the same capture and editing software. Take a look at our workshop features:
  • Photo & Video Capture: DSLR, Mirrorless, iPhone and Android devices welcomed. Don't feel left out that you only have a mobile device! This workshop is 100% mobile friendly.
  • Photo Editing: The primary software is Lightroom CC (mobile and/or desktop version), but we can also work with Photoshop for those who prefer PS. The Lightroom CC mobile app is free, the Desktop version has a monthly fee.
  • Video Editing: Adobe Premiere Rush CC is a multi-platform mobile and desktop app that we will be using to teach video editing. It is an incredibly versatile app that will allow you to create sharable masterpieces!
  •  Video Sharing: One of our main goals is to teach you how to export for final edited film to Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and IGTV. Each platform uses slightly different exporting parameters, which we are excited to share with you.

Then it’s time to check the Acropolis off your bucket list, as well as the impressive Acropolis museum!

Once the tour has been completed you have three choices: You are free to explore the rest of the city as you choose, go with Greg to practice more in-depth travel videography, or with Mark to practice travel photography. Today is all about camera work: our goal is to get as much Athens media (photo + video) as possible so we can edit our travel stories mid-trip.

After another hearty group dinner tonight you have free time to enjoy Athens in the evening.
DAY 4: May 27 – Athens to Tolo
After another delicious breakfast we will drive to Tolo in the Peloponnese (approximately 2 hours), a quaint beach side town popular with Greek vacationers. We’ll stop on the way to visit the Corinth Canal.

DAY 6: May 29 – Tolo – Editing Day
Today is editing day!

Mark and Greg will be giving editing demos to show you how they edit their travel photos and videos, and then after a free time lunch break they will be helping each one of you edit your travel videos.
