This is what people say

I booked this experience to enhance our photography skills and tour parts of Santorini that otherwise we may not see. My wife was uncertain regarding the photography part of the excursion. However, Judy made her very comfortable from the initial introductions. Judy is an experienced professional photographer and that came across immediately. My wife was using her iPhone and I was using a Sony RX100. Judy was able to explain exposure compensation, ISO, histograms, Aperture vs Shutter vs Manual and how best to use all of these to get the best photos given the lighting conditions. She was able to explain these photography basics in a very simple way and have us understand and implement them within the first hour. The rest of our tour was taking different shots and having Judy review them pointing out how they could be improved. We were also able to visit certain areas of Santorini that most tourists never get to see.

What did you enjoy the most?

The best part was seeing how much our photography improved and our resulting photos from the rest of our time in Santorini. Our friends loved how dynamic our photos looked.



Judy was AMAZING!!! Not only does she have 30 years of photography experience, but she was so friendly and easy to learn from! She showed my boyfriend and I how to use a brand new camera and also how to shoot better photos in on our phones as well. It was incredible how much we learned in only 5 hours and how much better our photos were from the start of our session to the end. I think both beginners and experienced photographers can learn a great deal from her! Highly recommend!!

This tour is a must! Judy was absolutely amazing. I am not a photographer by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, I have never even had the slightest interest and have always felt that "a picture doesn't do it any justice" and that you are better off just enjoying what you see while you are there. But, this was a trip of a lifetime for us, and everyone kept asking us to bring back lots of pictures. So when I saw that this private photo tour was available, and it was a good way to see the island with a local guide, I booked it. WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED. Judy gave us some really great tips and tricks to take truly outstanding photos. Since being home I cannot stop looking at the photos I took, AND I have proudly shared them with friends and colleagues who have asked me if I had a background in photography! Some even said the pictures were so good they looked like they were from a movie set! This tour was truly the highlight of our trip. Book this tour. You will love it!

The day with Judy was the #1 highlight of our time in Greece. She lives on Santorini and knows it so well that while hordes of tourists were on streets near us, we were seeing the same views on streets that were not crowded. We were in 3 villages, were taken to the best food at a local restaurant, learned about the island, and taught photographic tricks of the trade we did not know even though we are experienced photographers (esp. my husband). I even learned a few things that helped me take better photos with my phone... Aside from all that, Judy is kind, fun to be with, and a delight to spend the day with. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to know more.

Judy was absolutely amazing! I’m not sure what I enjoyed more - the beautiful scenery and hidden, untouched locations she took us to, or spending a day with Judy learning how to better compose the scene and learn my camera in a different way. She was amazing! She had separate itineraries based on our interests and adapted well. An absolute MUST in Santorini. Thank you Judy for a day we will never forget and a new love for a hobby we will enjoy for years!!

Judy is an AMAZING tour guide! She is a very laid-back and positive person and it was really nice to sit back and relax while she drove us to so many different unique and beautiful spots! She took us all over Santorini and personalized all of our photo stops based on what we liked. We were only using our phones and she provided so much helpful info about how to get the most out of our pictures. We took this tour at the beginning of our trip and we're already applying everything we learned! Judy was so fun to spend the day with and took us to places only locals know about - we hardly saw any other tourists all day. Highly recommend taking this tour with Judy for a unique, personalized tour of the island!

Judy is an absolutely incredible teacher and this tour is amazing! She takes the time to help to teach and improve your photography skills no matter what your skill level or amount of experience. She will take you to unique parts of the island to get the shots that few others will ever manage to find. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour for anyone who enjoys photography and wants to get to know and experience Santorini on a level that only a local can provide.

Judy was amazing. I am an avid photographer and she taught me so many simple hints that I know will make me a better photographer in the future. Plus, my partner was not an big picture taker, but came along. She left being really excited about taking photographs, and we spent the evening shooting our way around Oia. What fun. This was without a doubt the highlight of our trip to Santorini, and that is saying a LOT for anyone that knows how amazing Santorini is. Judy takes you to places you would never find on your own, and shows you how to capture them in pictures. Priceless!!!

We had a fabulous day with Judy! She taught me so much in just one afternoon about photography and how to improve my skills. She was also just a lovely person to be around and spend time with! She took us to several spots on the island that we would not have visited otherwise. Can’t recommend this tour enough!

This was a one-of-a-kind tour. My photography immediately improved after Judy spent a half hour at the beginning of the tour giving me some pointers. We then spent well over 5 hours touring Oia and getting some amazing shots. We were able to access areas otherwise inaccessible to the public, which was really cool. Judy even treated us to delicious gelato at Lolita’s. Tour is pricey compared to some others but well worth the money. You’ll get to see a side of Santorini you would not otherwise get to see.

We had an amazing day following an itinerary designed to suit our interests. Great individualized photography instruction done in a super helpful and constructive way. The time flew by! You don’t have to be advanced in photography to enjoy this.

I rarely write reviews but I felt obligated to share how incredible this day was. I booked the tour for my girlfriend and I, and we found ourselves taking photos with Judy well over our allotted time slot, having the time of our lives. Judy is a world-renowned photographer and she teaches you how to dramatically improve your photo taking skills within the first half hour of the trip. Regardless of what camera you have, you will learn. I found myself taking photos I never thought possible. As the day progresses you pass through amazing areas of Santorini, each one more breathtaking and secluded than the last. Every once in a while you meet someone that absolutely loves what they do, and Judy is one of those people. If you want a truly engaging, educational, & exceptional tour, then look no further than Judy. Thank you Judy! For a more detailed review read mine here:
