About me, from back then till now
Because I am a boy of light
Born in the States from Greek parents, since my childhood I was blessed to breathe the atmosphere of three inspiring cultures: American, Cretan and the spiritual one arriving from a picturesque village of Plomari on the island of Lesvos.
During different periods of my life, I had a chance to live in the places such as Fairfield, Connecticut, Plomari on Lesvos, Chania on Crete and San Luis Obispo in California. All those places and their people inspired me and left a significant mark on my vision of world. They helped me to precise what type of life style I would like to follow and how I could introduce it to the others.
Photography entered into my life more than twenty years ago and it never abandoned me while I was developing a comprehension of simplicity and the importance of light in our lives.
I have always been an outdoor person. Climbing mountains, hang-gliding, cycling for many years, running short and long distances involved a lot of traveling and lots of unforgettable images ran through my eyes.
Everything in my life just happened to deliver through my lenses an outcome the way you can see it now.
Residing in Chania of Greek island Crete, allows to bring into my photography the most precious element of my images, natural light coming from the beloved Mediterranean sun.
I am a life style photographer capturing images of people and their special moments.
I have a privilege of photographing weddings and baptisms as well as taking families and individuals on the photo journey around places that always make their stay in Greece a unique lifetime experience.
I am and I have always been faithful to my Greek-American background. I have been lucky to live around places that taught me what a quality of life means.
I love interacting with people which is a core of my work. I love food and breathtaking locations which led me to photography of travelling, food and exceptional hotels and villas.
Sport remains my passion and my publications on different events appear regularly in Greek magazines.
Most of my photo sessions take place in the area of Chania, in the Western part of Crete, but I am always excited to discover another angle, somewhere else.
Here I am hard at work.. 🙂
