About Zagori

Zagori is one of the most photogenic places in Greece and Europe. With its unique terrain, wide range of altitude (from 400 to almost 2500 meters above sea level), exceptional biodiversity and magnificent architectural heritage, the photographic exploration of Zagori’s 1000 km2 could take a lifetime. For more information on the area, please visit www.zagoriview.com,
an online guide created and run by the photographer.

The photographer

Photographer Costas Zissis offers private or group workshops in this majestic landscape he researched extensively over many decades. Costas is Zagori born and he has lived and photographed Zagori for more than 30 years. He self-published postcards of the area over many years as well as the photography hard cover book ZAGORI in  2006, a collection of some of the best iconic landmarks of the place, captured on film. He also had his photography work on the area published in numerous major Greek and international printed and online media and did as well numerous photography exhibitions in Greece and Switzerland. He is a member of the Chamber of Fine Arts of Greece and photography is his main profession. With his extensive local knowledge and years long experience, Costas will take you to locations and secret spots that provide ideal photo opportunities for you to capture the beauty of this varied and wonderful landscape.

Some information for participants

The photography workshops or photography tours -you can call it your preferred way, depending on your personal special approach to photography- are aimed at visitors with any level of photography knowledge and experience. For best results, guests are recommended to use a camera with manual settings and RAW format capabilities, DSLR or Mirrorless ILC. However, this is not essential, as modern smartphones, with or without  lens accessories, offer some advanced photographic capabilities. Carrying a tripod is also recommended, as it will help guests to create better quality images, especially when using long lenses or shooting in low light and at the same time allows higher control on framing and composition.

Tour program

Itinerary #1. We explore the nature and the landscape of West Zagori in this 5-hour tour.
We meet at the Vikos village square, where the Mouth and the deepest part of the Vikos Canyon can be captured. Then we continue our expedition and our photography talk along the banks of the emerald Voidomatis River. Our photography tour will go on at the village of Papingo, where we will capture its scenic landscape and picturesque architecture.



Itinerary #2. We capture the architectural heritage in Central Zagori, the stone bridges around the village of Kipi and the well preserved villages of Dilofo and Vitsa.

Each tour lasts five hours and includes transfers, starting from any Zagori village. Tours include short walks or hikes over easy walking terrain to selected locations with the best views and photo opportunities. All tours are guided by Costas Zissis who will be happy to share his local knowledge and offer expert advice on photographic topics. Depending on the weather, some elements of the tours may change.
