Born and raised in Thessaloniki - Greece within a family of active professional photographic interest. At the age of eighteen I attended photography seminars, followed by a BA (honours) in Photography, seminars with the title 'European photography' and finally a Masters degree, always in my favorite subject...Photography.
Recently, I have been selected as one of the top 100 international wedding photographers for year 2016.
During a Wedding day, people experience intense moments and I am there to record them and describe them with my photographic images. I never interfere and try to be «transparent» and capture the moment, the feeling, the situation!
The only photographic session at which I interfere during the day and give instructions and directions is when I am left alone with the couple in order to have their wedding portraits, which I name «Creatively Directed Wedding Portraits”.
Therefore my photographic style and aesthetics is a mixture of “Wedding Photojournalism” and “Creatively Directed Wedding Portraits”.
I have been awarded a Masters degree in photography from a British university and I have won numerous photographic awards.
As an International wedding photographer I am available on wedding assignments worldwide.
