Bringing some local lifestyle to a villa photo shoot in the South of Crete
Photographing villas for me is a substantial part of my work. The main aspect I try to implement in this type of work is of genuine lifestyle during each photo shoot.
This is what I incorporated when I recently photographed a small villa in the renowned village of Sfakia in the South of Crete.
Sfakia is known throughout history for the bravery of it’s inhabitants during every single war that the island has been involved in. A proud group of people that now see thousands of tourists flock by during the Summer due to the passage from the Samaria Gorge and quaint neighboring villages like, Loutro, Fragokastelo and others.

Some of the best rising wedding photographers in the world
When the highly respected list of rising photographers of Rangefinder Magazine came out, I was stunned and ecstatic to see familiar names on the list.
Well for this bunch of photographers it is obvious that the world has spoken and stated that they are ahead of their game and leading the way to new and exciting places.
Photographers such as Pablo Beglez, Lukas Piatek, Rafal Bojar, Daniel Alonso
Beyond the simple acquaintance, some of them were more than happy to share their story, or “secrets” of trade and even have a beer or two.Does this make me a better photographer?No..! But I am glad to know that I am on to something good. Just ...
Dancing and eating into the new year in Chania Crete, Greece
Why I supported TEDx Chania
To start with, I need to emphasise on how much every professional, in just about any field, has to find time and effort, and give back to the community they practice their business in, and not just expect to receive ALL THE TIME.
With this in mind I try to find and help with my profession, individuals or groups, that strive, work hard and have a vision. My job then is to help that vision become audio, visual, or both.
I can either photograph, capture a film or simply guide in the best way that I have learned thus far.
TEDx Chania approached me with the need of photographic coverage of their speakers. Being the low season of ...

Yet another hard task was tackled the other day with the results still in the making.
A while bach I came to an agreement with long time client from Denmark Lotte Herstal, owner of Divine Villas in Chania Crete to shoot some short clips for the 2017 promotion of the villas.

24h escape to the South of Crete in Paleochora
It all happened mid week, 75 min away in less than 24hours in September.
Paleohora in the South of Crete is our favourite destination "get-away". Amazing beaches, great food and family atmosphere.
And all that can be arranged within one stop. Just drive up to the "Palm Tree" and you are done. Perrakis family takes care of the rest. Rooms, food and tones of smiles.
We have always loved hanging out there from our single days up to now as a family. Andreas, one of the three brothers has been a buddy of mine since my cycling days and now we both enjoy time together as dads.
If that ain't proof of friendship longevity I don't know wha ...
Local festival with a photo expo at Zymvragou Chania Crete, Greece

Q & A with filming / editing mini workshop with cinematographer Hector Torra in Chania Crete, Greece.
A while back I had the chance to attend a workshop that helped change my perspective on some core personal and professional aspects in my photography.
Best of all I had a chance to make some good friends that I now also call part of my network. One of them is Hector Torra. A cinematographer from Spain with a spirit and humor similar to myself.
Hector and his girlfriend, the lovely Carolina came to Crete to visit the island and spend some time together. While here we had a chance to talk shop and try to find ways to potentially work together. In my opinion it is just a matter of time.
In the mean while I asked Hect ...
