Love Crete? Love Nature?
Two unique and exciting workshops to experience the power and magic of this beautiful island.
Crete is an ancient and powerful place full of beauty and magic. A profound energy here awakens your senses, intuition and power.
These unique opportunities invite you to experience this energy through photography, nature, meditation and self-discovery. These can be added to your holiday or retreat. Get in touch for us to discuss your needs!
Intuitive Photography Workshops
Discover the incredible magic and beauty of Crete through a creative and inspiring exploration of photography.
I will take you through playful and meditative exercises to reconnect with your most authentic and instinctive creative style.
Together we will explore our heart connection with the world around us, and dive into its light, colour, textures and sights.
What you’ll do
After heading into nature together , we will begin with a short meditation to connect, and I will frame our activities for the workshop. I will then run us through a series of exercises focused on getting you connected to your camera and the world around you new in a new and exciting way.
These will cover three main themes: intuitive shooting, light and framing. After each exercise we will come together to share our insights and experiences. I will also be able to answer any questions throughout the workshop.
We will finish by sharing and talking about your favourite shots from the workshop, and a hot cup of tea or cold drink.
The workshop is for all levels, from beginners to advanced. The aim is to provide you with a new method to connecting with photography in an intuitive manner, while also giving you some tools to improve your skill and composition.

Self-Discovery Journeys in Nature
Be guided on a journey of personal discovery through mindfulness, meditation and time in nature. Connect with yourself and your inner world while immersed in Crete’s beautiful nature.
What you’ll do
We will start by meeting and walking into nature together, to find a quiet space where we will sit and start with a first group meditation.
You'll be asked to connect with your intention for the journey. Based on this, I'll lead the group through a series of exercises such as:
connection with nature
In-between each exercise we will walk a little and come back together to connect and share any insights. I will be available for any questions or for any extra support.
Towards the end of the journey we will come to a final spot where we'll share some iced tea, before closing the journey. We'll then make our way back to the starting point together.

What previous participants are saying
“After having been on a photography 'session' with Ed, I won't be able to visit the same place without seeing the magic of it! Using photography as a medium - it became very alive and graceful. Sharing and seeing results of others was a delight.” - Maria
“Thank you Edward, not just for a wonderful few hours in nature but for reminding me of my joy in photography. I feel as though I have let go of a fear of getting it perfect, capturing the right light, exposure or framing. It now feels simple and effortless and the results are some of the best photos I have taken that really capture a moment in time. “ - Rob
“I loved the combination of photo-shooting and nature...really lively and unforgettable experience.” - Vicky
“What a joyful journey it was into the land of awe, innocence and magic of photography gently led by Edward’s loving and inspiring presence combined with his experience and knowledge of photography. Thank you Ed for creating the space to explore and feel free and safe at the same time.” - Amaryllis
“Re-Awakened my Photographic Creativity. What a super workshop, in a very beautiful secret place, lost in nature (but not far away!), Edward gently guided us through several exercises, engaging us in trusting our instincts to make strong images. A very friendly & helpful tutor, we played with light & colour to make some unique & interesting pictures. Accessible to any level of experience, I believe Edward can inspire everyone to enjoy making improved images. This workshop will add a whole new experience to your holiday in beautiful Chania. Thank you Edward, I hope to participate again.” - Jill
