Dreaming of Maldives
The story and Who we are
We are not a travel agency, nor are we in partnership of any kind with any travel Company.
We are Maldives lovers since 1999 and World experienced travelers for decades.
Our team is composed of one photographer/Videographer- Sakis, and myself, -Rozenn, Travel & Tourism Professional for 15 years and working today as an Editor and Web Designer.
The Dreaming of Maldives Collection was created in 2005 with our very first Photography Book - Dreaming of Maldives 1 and the first of a series of Maldives Yearly Wall Calendars published every year since then.
Dreaming of Maldives 2 was released in 2008 and the last one, Dreaming of Maldives 3 more recently, in 2011.
To complete your experience of the Maldives, we have created this Website where we present you hundreds of photos and many videos as well as 2 blogs (in English and French) to tell you more stories, show you more photos and update you on the latest news.
We constantly travel from South to North of the Archipelago and so far, have visited around 75 Resorts, Hotels and Liveaboard Safari boats... we are always on the move to discover more.
All featured news, information, reviews, images and videos that you will see are independently selected by us.
We are dedicated with our website, blog and Editions to show you the Best and Essential of Maldives and make you dream from wherever you are.
We hope to contribute to make you discover your next destination and find your ideal Resort for your Holidays.
Who we are...
Our (small) team
Sakis and myself work together as a small passionate team...Here we are in a few words :
Sakis, the Photographer and Videographer
Specialist in Hotel & Resort Photography, Travel Photography, Aerial Photography and Lifestyle Photography, Sakis founded Impressions Photography in 1994 and has established his reputation by focusing on quality, creativity and elegance.
His vision, sense of colour and style are instantly recognizable.
His work has been featured in many Travel magazines and books worldwide. His photography is also represented by Stone, Image Bank and Robert Harding Photo Agencies.
Self Publisher and Co-Author of the Maldives Photography Books Dreaming of Maldives and a series of Yearly Maldives Calendars, he is today a leading photographer of the destination.
Since 1999, Sakis has created an extensive and unique collection gathered under the name “Creative Collection”.
In 2005, he published the first Edition of the successful photography book, Dreaming of Maldives™, as well as Maldives yearly calendars and a series of postcards.
The Second Edition of Dreaming Of Maldives™ was published in 2008 and the 3rd and latest one in April 2011.
He is also known for his unique aerial image collection of the Maldives.
He made his first aerial Photo shooting in Maldives in 2000 from a seaplane and is today a specialist in the field too.
Immediately thrilled and inspired by this experience, he soon decided to explore and manage this domain by photographing from various aircrafts and helicopters (some aerial photos of Seychelles can be discovered on his official Website).
Skills and knowledge have allowed him to create a unique aerial photo collection of the Maldives, renown internationally.
Sakis photographs with one single aim : to bring back unseen and exclusive images that would perfectly depict the real dreamy and amazing beauty of the Maldives.
With extensive travels throughout the Maldivian Archipelago, he has visited more than 75 Hotels and Resorts, ranging from 3 stars to famous and luxurious properties, far and unknown Atolls as well as local Islands.
