M05299 presents photo tours, photo safaris and photo workshops in digital and film from the island of Santorini in Greece's fabled Cyclades.
1. How long has the business been operating and how did it start?
We have been educating students for the past eight years since 2006!
I first experienced the fabled Greek light in 1994 and had an artistic epiphany, an awakening that has led me to explore over fifty-five Greek islands.
2. What is your company's mission?
Our mission is to awaken our students to the power of light and working with the digital medium. We have created a forum from which students can learn about the Greek culture and language whilst making the finest images of their lives. Our job is simply to put you in the right place, at the right time, with the most perfect light.
3. What does your company specialize in?
We specialize in both digital and film photography using formats from 8x10 view to 35mm. We are expert in Photoshop CS-6 and in Lightroom and still process our film and print silver images by hand.
4. Who is the founder or owner of the company and briefly describe his/her past activities?
Glenn Steiner is a multiple award-winning pro photographer from San Francisco who has worked for many of the world's finest art directors and graphic designers in search of visual purity and simplicity of vision. I am the winner of the prestigious 'Best Ad' from the New York Advertising Club in 1987 and of the Epcot Award from Eastman Kodak in 1984, among many others.
5. What is your most popular travel package and why?
"In Search of the Real Greece" wherein we explore the lesser known Venetian villages of Santorini, rarely seen Anafi and pristine Thirasia.
6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?
That through photography, we have fundamentally changed one student's life and taught them how to see the unseen, using light as metaphor. That student is now a practicing pro photographer.
