And finally! We are in Santorini and preparing for our very first Lightedpixels getaway.
I haven't exactly shared this. Over the years, I have had couples and friends ask me about Santorini and also expressed interest in visiting the island. I have always enjoyed the island and the people here. The resort that I stay in is a warm and friendly place and the guys who run it are genuinely nice guys to hang around and talk to. While it is not luxurious, it more than makes up for it with its chilled and friendly vibes.
Last year, I decided to book the entire resort - all 15 rooms. I also extended the invite to the couples I have shot for and friends. Thankfully, all 15 rooms have been taken up and so we have our very first getaway!
For the first time, I am away on a trip on a tour rather than a photoshoot ha. The plan is to bring everyone together. Some have heard or seen each other on our social media but have never met. Now they can. It is also a great opportunity to make new friends. My plan is to bring everyone around the island especially places that I have discovered over the years - little hidden gems. We will also be exploring the beaches, the wineries and of course some of the best restaurants I have visited. The hope is to keep it casual, fun and for everyone to make new friends and memories.
Because I am a photographer, the tour will also have a slight photographic slant to it. Marklin from the @lightedpixelspixies is here too! Together we will provide photography advise. Marklin will also conduct sunrise, sunset and Astro photography mini lessons.
This is a pilot for us. In time, we will organise a second getaway. 😃 And of course, my dear friends, if you are keen, let us know. Cheers! More images to come!
