About me

My photographic journey began in 2010, in my own ex bar in Athens, at approximately 3 am.

Today, I work as a freelance photographer/ creative director, writing words and capturing images for commercial purposes, media, products, art events and all kind of people.

As a professional photographer, I deal every day with what we all know: a picture is worth a thousand words. As a copywriter, I can highlight these words to promote your business.

I strongly believe that the combination of these two professional abilities can really add some more freshness and creativity to your company's goals and success.

My main professional career started as a copywriter and within a few years continued as an associate creative director in major advertising agencies in Greece and Cyprus.

At some point, I decided to enter the hospitality business, as an operations manager, in my own bar in the centre of Athens which became one of the most popular artistic places in the city.

After 8 years, I started working as a bar manager in Taleton 4* Hotel and a bar team leader in Westin Costa Navarino Resort Both were contracted jobs.

So, my whole professional career has been based and developed through communication with people, building meaningful and profitable relationships and offering creative services that have kept alive my desire for further development.

That is probably why I have been recently recognized as a member of the Top10 Best Photographers 2020, by the Creativepool team.

I have also organized two personal photography exhibitions in Nicosia, Cyprus. "Shooting Lorca" in 2017 and "Closed" in 2019.

In my free time I like to do some street photography, where conditions, characters and emotions always create many and unexpected twists. I also enjoy scuba diving, basketball and theater performances.

I try to be on the streets all over the world, as I love to travel and write travelogues.

I like Pink Floyd's music, drinking iced coffee and, as a Greek, I often order souvlaki to eat. My favorite animal is the pig and the most unforgettable trip was in Cuba.
