is a destination wedding and portrait photographer based in Athens and Vienna, ready to travel all around Europe to cover your wedding day. From the cycladic islands and Santorini to the Alps and furthe more, feel free to send him a booking request for your special day.
He is a professional photographer specialized in documentary photography and creative wedding photography. After completing his first Master’s degree in Visual Communication and Media studies in Athens, he continued his studies in London with a second master’s degree in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography awarded by UAL (University of the Arts London). The last 11 years he’s been working on numerous documentaries for greek NGO’s like “The Smile of the Child”, “PRAXIS”, “Medicines of the World”, “Medecins sans frontieres” and “Create and Do” and has also been participating actively in exhibitions in Greece and UK. His work has been published in newspapers and magazines across Europe, from the german newspaper “Die Zeit” to Uk’s “Wedding ideas” and Greek newspapers ” Eleutherotipia, to Ethnos, Ta Nea “. A piece from his project “Young Greeks under the economic crisis” was exhibited in the National Portrait Gallery in London as part of the 2014 Taylor Wessing Portrait Photography Awards and was chosen as well in the 2014 RPS international UK Print Competition and in Benaki Museum as part of the Athens photo festival . In 2013 in Greece he was awarded in the Athens Photo Inspiration competition. Through his solo exhibition “HIV. LUSAKA/ZAMBIA” resulting from his photographic documentary located therein, he succeeded in gathering a relevant fund which was then donated to the “Mother of Mercy hospice” in Lusaka, capital of Zambia in Africa, engaged to the improvement in the living conditions of patients in terminal stages of HIV. The way in which he photographically approaches a wedding differs from the usual style observed in the Greek market, because he manages the covering of a wedding in the same way he would do with a documentary, with spontaneity. The photographer specializes in observing an event and shooting it without being noticeable. This brings as a result authentic and spontaneous photographs.
