Martin R.

Thira, Santorini, Cyclades, Greece

I can be found on the Cycladic island of Santorini, in the Southern Aegean, truly one of the most magnificent islands in the world.

My first visit was in 1983, loved it so much, I came back. I have plenty of experience with the island, it's people and traditions.

I have been photographing on Santorini & internationally professionally for many years capturing personalities from the former King, Constantine II & Queen Anne-Marie of Greece to The Wall Street Journal's Senior Editor, Mariko Sanchanta. Published with Time Inc. (U. S. A. ), Courrier International (France) and CIO & OutPost Business & Travel Magazines (Canada). J. P. Morgan Concierge, Thomas Cook & Top notch cruise lines Cunard/ Queen Elizabeth. Paul Gauguin, Wind Star/ Spirit

You won't find any coloured placards here, no crowded buses either. You'll be picked up at your hotel/ villa or from your cruise ship and I'll take you to some of Santorini's most sought after locations, villages, tavernas & beaches where you will experience the local hospitality.

Whether you're here for a short time or many days, either an amateur/ novice photographer with a point & shoot hand held camera or a more serious photographer with a dslr. . . or hey, just want to be shown around the islands wonderful sites, I'm here to help you.

A British/ Canadian National & Greek resident, University educated (BAA Hons. ) in Photography and College learned in Computer Management. I hold multiple G, M and Int'l. license's, am world traveled and a certified PADI Freediver.

A Recent Review of this guide

Ron and I had a nicely paced day with Martin. We easily met up at the top of the cable car and from there he drove us around the beautiful island of Santorini. It was hot so we took a break for lemonade & ice cream and he ultimately dropped us off conveniently to get to the cable car. I wasn't sure in advance if he was going to discuss details about taking pictures or just the right places to shoot from. This was more of the later. We do private and ship tours and this day with Martin was worth it.
