A few words about me
I am a professional wedding and portrait photographer based in Athens Greece. I studied Electrical and Computer Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens but I have been into photography longer than I remember myself.
What to expect
As you have noticed I fancy making clean cut portraits while searching for candid moments that provide a documentary,storytelling touch to my projects. Every project is unique and so are the people involved in it, nonetheless I always try to deliver an experience similar to what you have witnessed so far.
I enjoy working with fun and sincere people that value photography and I will be glad to hear your ideas about your portrait session or event. Please feel free to ask anything you would like about my photography and I hope we will make a good match, besides where there is a will there is a way.
