Local Affinity – Greece in Focus

Visiting Greece during the off-season, which typically runs from November through March, can offer a unique experience compared to the peak summer months. Although the weather may be cooler, however particularly good to take pictures because Greece has beautiful light.

Fewer tourists: One of the most significant benefits of visiting Greece off-season is that popular attractions, archaeological sites, and beaches will be much less crowded, allowing you to explore and enjoy them more peacefully. For example, Delphi, where you must queue to enter during the high season, in winter you could take beautiful shots without all kinds of disturbing factors.
Authentic experience: with fewer tourists around, you’ll have the opportunity to interact with residents and enjoy a more authentic Greek experience. You’ll be able to visit small towns and villages that are less frequented by tourists, allowing you to better appreciate the culture and traditions.
Winter on the islands: Some of the smaller Greek islands may become quite quiet during the off-season, with many local businesses closing for the winter. A good example of what is possible on an island during the winter season is Rhodes.
Explore the Medieval City of Rhodes: The well-preserved Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage site and offers a fascinating glimpse into the island’s history. Wander through the Street of the Knight’s, early morning or during the blue hour, you’ll get fascinating light.
Visit Ancient Lindos: This picturesque village is home to the Acropolis of Lindos. The quaint alleys are deserted, but it is nevertheless still lively, incidentally then very suitable for a model shooting.
Then drive further south towards the beach of Prasonisi, here you have a fantastic opportunity to take shots with grey or ND filters.
The mainland of Greece, the Peleponnesos for example.
Unique atmosphere: The winter season brings a different atmosphere, with the possibility of snow-capped mountains, misty landscapes, and moody skies that can add depth and character to your photographs.
Soft light: The winter sun is generally lower in the sky, which creates softer light and longer shadows, resulting in more flattering and dramatic images.
Vivid colours: The winter season can bring out more vibrant colours, especially after rain when the landscapes appear more saturated and lusher.
