A photographic walk around the Acropolis in Athens Greece.

This past Summer I photographed the wedding of my friends Christo and Eleni in Chania Crete Greece.

On the same day they baptized their little boy Dimitri.

The unfortunate part of the whole day was that Dimittri go bitten by a bug the night before and had his hansom face swollen throughout he day.

So I decided one day to make it up to the champ. The family live in Athens so we never had a everyday chance to meet up and have me photograph Dimitri.

 

A few weeks ago I was on a business trip in Athens and finally had an opportunity keep my promise.

 

I wanted to photograph Dimitri with a new approach I am trying.

It’s a photo session just like I photograph my own daughter. Simply hanging around, with just one camera, no assistants and fancy lighting or big modifiers. Things that can sometimes get in the way and cause me to lose a moment.

Now don’t get me wrong, I love and need all the equipment I usually use, but when I “slim down” like this I better focus on my subject.

An kids tend to respond better a lot sooner too.

 

It’s like having me for “A day in your life”

I have to be extra sharp not only to catch the right instance of a moment, but better yet, foresee it coming. Being a rookie dad myself chasing my little girl around all day helps too :)   The Pedersen’s from Norway contacted my asking to be photographed somewhere with local nature and also on the beach. A very nice combination. I suggested the well managed Botanical Gardens in Chania for the first part, then the beach in front of t ...

Rethymno Crete Greece family photographer. A birthday gift from Norway
The gift of a family photo shoot for a birthday has been very high on my request list for the past couple of years. When people travel from around the world and decide to visit Crete they love to combine the scenery with the gift of a family photo shoot. Such was the case of the Grann’s from Norway. The family of 8 with now two little members chose to celebrate their mothers 60th birthday within the Fortezza Castle of Rethymno Crete. Six children and now the two grandchildren walked around with me in the morning heat of August, all together with a sense of explorers. I melted and they loved it. In their own words: The pictur ...
