Mamma Mia! Behind the Scenes

Mamma Mia! on Skopelos

It was a January afternoon of 2007, when I received a phone call from the Greek production office of a big Hollywood film.  They told me that they were looking for shooting locations on a Greek Island and that they liked my aerial photos of Skiathos and Skopelos in my website, since I currently have the largest archive of landscape stock photos from the Sporades islands, Skiathos, Skopelos and Alonissos, including the deserted islands of the national marine park. The film was Mamma Mia! Being part of the film crew, I had the opportunity to document the whole procedure of the filming. It was a great experience. I will never forget the first morning  I met Pierce Brosnan at Milia beach, which was the base of the film shooting. It was a rainy  morning around 8.The first day of  the filming on Skopelos.  He was wearing a  nice hat. ”I said good morning, welcome to Greece”. He shook my hand and said. “Pierce, what’s your name son?”
