Rhodes is one of the most photographed cities in Greece thanks to the world-class heritage bequeathed by the medieval Knights Hospitaller. The Order of St John of Jerusalem occupied Rhodes from 1309 to 1523, transforming the city into a stronghold. Their fortifications will be the focus of your photography masterclass. How will you capture the story of Rhodes through your images? Your visit begins with a theory session where your National Geographic-trained photography guide will share tips on composition, lighting, and storytelling through photography. To add an exciting dimension to your day's photography, your tutor will run a competition to find the best shot of the day. With that motivation, you'll walk around the perimeter of the fortress and through the huge gateway, capturing shots of the medieval elements. As you enter the old walled town of Rhodes – which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1988 – more exciting shooting locations will reveal themselves, including the Street of Knights and the Clock Tower. Your guide will offer technical advice, demonstrate the best angles, and point out good places to capture wow-factor photos. Once the photography tour is complete, you'll relax over refreshments and discuss the day's images with your guide, who will give your group an evaluation of the day's work. The best image will be chosen in the context of its connection with National Geographic values, and once the decision has been made, a winner will be declared.
