Greece: Vintage [Post #1]

So this is the first of a series of blog posts dedicated to my trip to Greece in November 2017.

They are going to go as follows (and I will add links as they get published):

Greece: Vintage [Post #1]

Greece: Fashion [Post #2]

Greece: Rock [Post #3]

Greece: Tourist [Post #4]

Greece: Ruins [Post #5]

Greece: Classical [Post #6]

Greece: Abstract [Post #7]

I’m excited to write about my trip and share some of the work I did there with you.


Basically, this series of blog posts is being written because I was lucky enough to get to work for a whole week in Greece. I was invited there by a fantastic photographer called Rick, who goes by the name Garden of the Muses for his photography work. He took me to some amazing places and I saw so many wonderful things. I’m not surprised that the photographs from the trip are all so good! You can access his website by clicking here if you’re interested in seeing more of his work.


When I was looking through the images Rick sent me (while I was back in cold, rainy England!), I saw that he had edited several of the images with a particular style. They really jumped out at me. I think it gives the images a certain timeless quality that I can’t really explain. I decided they would form a great little group of images for my first blog post, to introduce the sort of work we did.

I’ll be honest, some of the poses in the images I’m about to show you are a little clumsy for my tastes (well, I can’t nail it every time can I?). I probably wouldn’t have liked some of these images if they had been edited differently (and by differently, I guess I mean, in a more average kind of way). But they seem to really work in this style for some reason and I’m not sure why. It just goes to show that editing really does make a difference to the image.

[The poses I am talking about  here relate to photographs 3, 4 & 10 in particular]

There are also a few images in this post that are included in future blog posts, just edited differently (by differently, I mean black and white). These images in black and white are among my favourite images from my time in Greece. I feel like those same images in this particular editing style makes them into something else, and I like them for a whole different reason. I’m not even sure if that paragraph reads well, so I hope you understand what I’m getting at. Basically just that these images in this style are awesome. Those same images are even better in black and white and you’ll see those in other blog posts. I think that makes a bit more sense. Maybe. Moving on…

[Here, I am talking about photographs 2, 7, 8 & 9 in particular]

It’s amazing how something simple can change your opinion of a photograph. That’s why I decided to give these images a post of their own. I’m not going to say much else in this post. I’ll shut up and let the photographs speak for themselves.

I hope that you like these shots as much as I do. There’s just something about these images in this editing style that makes them so different. I can’t explain it, and I’m probably making a mess of trying to explain it. Let me know in the comments which ones are your favourites! If I had to pick just one, I think it would be number 9!
