Why good photos always come back to faces
While shooting on Santorini, I was reminded that you really get to know a destination through the people that live and work there.
Futuristic ferries, but the charm is timeless
I first came to Santorini in the summer of 1984. Brought up in Greece, it was my first holiday with friends and without family.
How to flirt in Greece
“Hi, I’m Stelios Onassis, pleased to meet you,” says a demigod as he lies down opposite me in the open-air lounge bar in Athens.
Athens is charming and fun – it is!
I am often challenged. “Why don’t you give that stinking ‘souvlaki hell’ a miss?” my friends ask when I say I am going to Athens.
A never-ending night in Athens
New Yorkers may claim otherwise, but Athens is the real city that never sleeps.

Where the view never changes
As I sit on the porch of my hotel overlooking Fira and sipping a Greek coffee that is thick and black as molasses, the owner, Lambros joins me with a plate of shriveled black olives, salty kefalotyri cheese and a bottle of wine made from Santorini’s unique assyrtiko grapes.
The perfect sun-kissed getaway
Hello Greece, where the islands make up a world apart that has been attracting visitors since the gods of legend.

In reality, it is a flirty, sexy place with a social life that destroys productivity and is perhaps the cause of an economic crisis that even the famed oracle of Delphi did not see coming.
