I had the pleasure to shoot Black Rock & also stay at the studio in August and it was one of the most beautiful weeks i had during this summer. It's a gorgeous place in a truly breathtaking island. A state-of-the-art recording studio located in Akrotiri at the southwestern tip of Santorini just 15 km away from Fira. And when we're talking about inspiration, location is everything.

I shot it on the 7D, various lenses, filters & the Glidetrack Hybrid. Edited & color corrected in FCP.

Black Rock is a combination luxury villa and world class recording studio located on the magnificent Greek island of Santorini. Build in a style that combines modern and traditional Cycladic architecture, Black Rock blends perfectly with the Aegean landscape. A heaven of inspiration and tranquility between sea and sun, offering a breathtaking panoramic view of the Aegean sea, and the volcanic islands.

Black Rock Studio won the Best New Studio In the World title by Audio Pro International (Industry Excellence Awards 2009). A judging panel of over 100 industry experts and executives, including some of the most respected figures in the business, voted & gave the title to Black Rock.

Santorini voted as the Best Island in the World by Travel + Leisure (World's Best Awards 2011 NYC). Santorini is a new World’s Best Island Overall winner, moving up from its No. 6 ranking on last year’s list of Top Islands Overall and displacing the Gal├ípagos from the No 1 position.
