Two Mann Studios recently spent 4 months traveling throughout Australia, Greece, and Croatia. Right before their trip started – literally on the way to the airport – Erika and Lanny Mann stopped in at The Camera Store and purchased 2 mirror-less cameras. Using the Fuji XT1 and the Sony RX1, Erika and Lanny captured their journey and have shared their beautiful photographs in a three-part blog series: Australia, Greece, and Croatia
After two months of travel and adventure in Australia (click here for photos), it was on to the Greek Islands for our first international workshops (click here for photos) and an ambitious month of travelling with Madelyn and Timmy.
Here are just a few of our favourite memories from Greece:
– Dining beside the sea on the freshest grilled calamari, baked feta cheeses, and the finest olive oils on Earth.
– Island hopping from Paros to Naxos to Santorini to Mykonos.
– Madelyn and Timmy’s reactions to the nudest beach(es) we “accidenlty’ stumbled upon.
– Catching up with our friends Kirsten (Lewis) and Greg Bethmann in Santorini and having Kirsten photograph a “Day In the Life” session for our family.
– Sharing and learning on a mountain-top villa with wonderful photographers from Greece, India, Dubai, Switzerland, Germany, the Netherlands, the UK, and Canada.
– Catching up with Erika’s sister, Meagan, who took care of Madelyn and Timmy during our workshops.
– Dining, swimming and cliff jumping at La Grotta, where they filmed parts of the 1981 James Bond movie, “For Your Eyes Only.”
– Mango Mint Daiquiris on the beach in Mykonos. Simply the best cocktails we’ve ever experienced.
– Crete (where we lost 1200 photos).
– Hanging out on secret little, secluded, boat-access-only beaches in Corfu.
– Exploring “The Blue Eye” (photo below) and other caves in Corfu.
– The people of Greece, especially Thanassis, Yiannis, Yiannis, and Giorgos!
As photographers, we often rely on images, in place of words, to share our memories and feelings. And so that’s exactly what we’ve done below, along with some stories and artwork from Madelyn’s and Timmy’s journals. Stay tuned for Croatia, coming soon.
