Lake Kerkini is artificial and was created in 1932. It’s part of Serres Prefecture, located at one hour distance (100km) from the second biggest city of Greece, Thessaloniki. Lake Kerkini has been declared National Park according to Ramsar Convention and it is one out of ten wetlands of International Importance of Greece. In our days is one of the best birding sites in Greece, where you can find 300 rare and protected bird species that live and breed here.
I am a Professional Photographer that every year shoot the area of Kerkini, its landscapes and its big population of the great Dalmatian Pelican!
Follow me to a one day visit and shoot the great Dalmatian Pelican that lives and breeds here and the beautiful landscapes that are located at the foot of the mountain Kerkini (Belles).
Photos from Lake Kerkini, and especially the great Dalmatian Pelican, are every year featured in publications and big photography contests.
On this one day visit we will follow Dalmatian Pelican and capture its unique behavior. With respect to these great waterbirds we will create unique images and learn the value of nature. My Workshop is suitable for every kind of photographers, regarding their skill level.
We will photograph from boat early in the morning. Later we will make an off road trip around the lake searching for photo opportunities of birds.
I will guide you to create unique images, providing information about camera settings and shooting tips.
I will show you wildlife photography techniques and will be there to help you at the field.

Recommended Photo Gear
If you dont have something from the above list you can contact me to arrange for you to rend it.
As we will be starting early in the morning you must bring with you very warm clothes, including gloves, scarf, cap and ideally thermal Underwear Set. Of course, you will need warm shoes, ideally water-resistant and a waterproof jacket.
Winder in Greece is usually harsh and temperatures can drop close to 0 Celsius.
I suggest you will be dressed in layers, that is to wear several pieces of clothing on top of one another, so that as the day gets warmer you will be able to adjust your clothes and temperature.
