Best season for photoshooting in Greece

Every landscape photographer knows that the best hours for photoshooting is early in the morning and late in the afternoon, when the sun light is soft and not as strong as in the midday. The best seasons for taking photos in Greece is spring and early autumn, when the day is long and the weather is certainly sunnier than winter. There may be some storms or clouds in Greece in spring and early autumn months, but generally the weather is great and sunny. Summer is also a great time for Greece photo shooting, but the towns and locations are busier in peak hours.

Photography tips

The most important tip for taking photos in Greece is to check the weather forecast from the day before. In summer and autumn, sudden storms could break out in the afternoon, although this is not a frequent case. Of course, this weather change could end up into a very interesting theme for a landscape photographer. In general, the weather is all sunny and bright in Greece from April to October, with some sudden exceptions. Also the best hours for landscape photoshooting is early morning, when the large crowds are still sleeping.
