Everyone’s seen photographs of the Greek Island of Santorini and wondered whether a place this beautiful really exists? Well, I’m here to tell you it does and it’s just as gorgeous in the flesh, if not more than it’s portrayed in those photographs. There are photo opportunities everywhere you look on the Island of Santorini. From the crystal blue waters surrounding the island, to the towns perched on top of the sheer cliffs, to the amazing sunsets that can be captured looking out from the town of Oia – your camera will be running hot!

Personally I really enjoyed capturing the beautiful architecture of this Greek Island. The traditional Cycladic style of the houses and buildings on Santorini are so unique to the island. Their use of block colour, rendered concrete and simple shapes is highly recognisable. Many of the houses boasted pretty courtyards overlooking the breathtaking views, complete with pot plants, an intimate table and chairs for two as well as a few lazy cats sleeping the day away.

I hope you enjoy viewing the photographs as much as I enjoyed taking them!
