Imagine that this picture is yours, inspired by your personality, framed in the landscapes that you choose, captured on the lens from a different angle. The best time to take pictures is evening hours because the light and the colours of nature reveal the beauty of the scenery. We will introduce you to local places that you haven’t seen before and we will start together to create moments that will be captured to the camera. The Venetian fortress of Koules built in 1540, the walls and gates of the old city, the tomb of most famous author Kazantzakis and many landscapes located just few kilometers outside of the city of Heraklion, give us many options to choose the right setting for your own pictures. The available days for the photoshooting session are Monday, Wendesday and Friday, it lasts 2 hours and you will be excited with the pleasant atmosphere, the positive energy and the place that you visit. At the end of the photoshooting session, we are going to relax in a traditional cafe to treat you with local food and drinks. Your pictures will be ready and sent to you via email within 2-3 working days. In fact, you are going to receive 3 pictures through email in order to choose two of them that express you mostly. Then, your selected pictures will be post- processed in order to enhance its features and quality. The final form of the selected pictures will be in high definition quality in order to be able to print out your portrait in any size that you wish and it will be send to you via email. When you book the experience, we will send you a questionnaire to fill in with basic information in order to organise properly the whole session based on your requirements (landscape selection). I am looking forward to meeting you in Crete and start creating together your moments and amazing experience.

From there we will take our boards and dive into the clear waters of the beach for a small ride with SUP and then our practice will follow. Stand Up Paddle - SUP - boarding is an ancient form of surfing, which is becoming more and more popular all over the world. Although this is a high intensity exercise, it does not cause any physical injuries. This is why it is ideal as a group workout program, as yoga. Those who know Paddle boarding describe it as "walking on the water", as it can only be done in calm waters such as lakes and seas without waves. A paddle board looks like a surfboard but is thicker and wider so you can stand upright on it. The program includes a surfboard on calm waters and exercises on the board. It nourishes 85% of the body muscles, whether you are an advanced trained or beginner. The roots of the Paddle Boarding are located in ancient Polynesia, while the modern exercise method has been revived by the surfers of Hawaii. After the end of our practice we will enjoy a dip in the lovely sea and drink frozen local raki. The duration of the course is 1 hour, from 19:00 to 20:00.

It begins high from the White Mountains and ends to the small beach of Marmara. It is one of the most beautiful gorge walks in western Crete and not so crowded like Samaria gorge. The walk from Aradena village to Marmara beach isn’t very long, (about 3.5 hrs) but some walking experience is recommended due to the path at some places isn’t very well maintained. Before we enter the gorge, we will visit the village of Aradena which was abandoned in the 1950s for the reason of vendetta, we will discuss about the cast of mind of the Cretans that time and we will get a good idea of traditional Cretan architecture. Till 1986 the village had no connection by road. At that time a spectacular Bailey bridge constructed that spans the deep gorge. It is the tallest bridge in Greece for bungee jumping. Before the bridge was constructed, the connection of Aradena was possible by an old stone path (traditional kalderimia), and from this kalderimia will be the beginning of our trek. Aradena and generally Sfakia are full of kalderimia due to the difficulty of making roads at such a mountainous place. They required a lot of work and this is the reason they are so spectacular, given the few means of that time. After we pass the kalderimia, we descend to the riverbed where we will have the opportunity to observe the cliff dwelling flowers and if we get lucky griffon vultures that nests in the cliffs of the gorge. Then, we end up at Marmara beach, an amazing small pebbly beach shaped at the exit of the Aradena Gorge. Marmara in Greek means "marbles" and is named after the petrification of the place that forms spectacular sea caves. There is one small tavern near the beach, where we can have a cold beer or refreshment and supply with water for the rest of the trek. After we take our swim at Marmara, we head for Loutro, a small fishing village east from Marmara beach (about 1.50 hr). Here simplicity rules. The access to Loutro is only by boat or by foot so we can enjoy our coffee or meal away from the noise of the cars. Loutro also has a beautiful pebbly beach for those who still have the energy. The program of the tour is as follows: * Departure from Rethymno at 7.00 * Arrival at Sfakia at 8.30 * We take the bus to Aradena at 9.00 * Arrival at 9.30 in Aradena, where we are touring the abandoned settlement * At 10.00 we enter the gorge and start walking * Exit the gorge until 13.30 * 2 hours free time on the beach Marmara for bathing and / or eating * At 15.45 departure for Loutro * At 17.00 we arrive at Loutro * 1 hour free time * On 18.10 we take the ferry to Sfakia * Return to Rethymno This excursion offers a unique way to enjoy the beauty of Southern Crete.

If you want to have dreamy artistic photos of yourself floating that’s your chance! This package refers to everyone that wants to capture himself or herself underwater. You can be a model, or not. That’s also an amazing kind way to capture pregnancy! So, pregnants are welcome as well! We meet early in the morning (6.00am) at the beach! We will discuss on model’s preferences and poses, as well as the model (male or female) is having a professional waterproof make up. Nextly, the model (woman) chooses the dress that she is gonna wear on the photoshooting. (In case that there is a male model, clothing is being pre-decided before the photoshooting day). While the model is ready, we start the photoshooting! There is a variety of images that we can achieve depending on each person’s swimming ability. Starting from stable images in shallow waters to floating effect images in deep sea waters! The photoshooting will take place for around 3 hours. At the end of the photoshooting, the model is being offered a breakfast at a local place close to the beach. The best 40 images are being delivered in digital files within two weeks, fully edited & in a high quality, ready to print! (Please have in mind that underwater photography is much more demanding than a normal outdoor photography. So we need to take much more photos in order to achieve a good one). You can now live the magic into the clear blue cretan waters! The photoshooting can take place in any Cretan beach of choice upon arrangment.

Together we will cut wood, light a fire, fill the cauldron, distill raki, drink, cook,  eat, sing, dance and have a great time. At this place, 4 generations back, from my grandfather and onwards, my family owns a legitimate, small, traditional raki distillery. Every year we have a feast. We distill raki or tsikoudia, the typical Cretan drink. Since we do not sell raki, but produce it for ourselves, our family and our good friends, we maintain the traditional way of distillation and we use the methods we learned from our grandfather. I invite you to join us and learn all the secrets of “the soul of Crete”, the excellent quality raki.
