About Me

I've been doing photography since I was young boy, acquiring my first Canon aged 6. I learnt the art and craft of photography from my grandfather, an experienced photographer who I still look up to. I began to experiment even more when a digital platform arose in the 2000's. Though there's a certain sentimentality about working with film, I feel that growing up in the digital era deeply affected my manner of working.

My photography took a professional turn in '08/'09 as websites across Greece began featuring my work. In '09 I moved to London and studied theatre & psychology while exploring the art of photography, as well as music and dance. As of '10 I began to teach Capoeira seminars in the UK and Greece an used the opportunity to expand my landscape portfolio. In '11 and '12 I did a lot of personal work and read up on photography which led to my busiest summer ever in '13. After the successful summer in Mykonos, Greece, I decided to spend 8 months in Brighton, from where I travelled to various locations in the UK to work on all artistic endeavours. I spent the summer season in Mykonos, Greece once again, taking on other projects such as weddings and baptisms, and have now moved to Athens.

I am currently located in Athens, Greece. Feel free to contact me regarding shooting rates. I'm open to TF* so long as you propose an idea that benefits my portfolio.

*Please do not contact me with a list of rates & services, I rarely work for free myself and am not associated with any label/magazine that requires me to hire models.
