I was born in Athens where I studied direction of photography at the Staurakou art school of cinema and television.
In 1995 I began working in the reporting and photo-reporting industry.
I was asssigned as a camera man next to war correspodents in Belgrade in 1999, and Palestine in 2003.
I had the opportunity to work on many foreign campaigns, in Belgium, Moldavia, Algeria, Venezouela, Syria and France. Moreover I was part of the crew that filmed documentaries in a number of countries such as Cuba and Turkey.
My work is defined by my passion for photography and people. Every photograph has to capture a small bit of the human condition, beyond borders, language and civilizations.
That is why I am almost exclusively shooting portrait, maternity and destination wedding photography.
Every photo tells a story. The story of a person, narrated by the expression on his face.
The connection between the person behind and in front of the camera is especially important to me.
I strive to get to know the people I am shooting, to adapt my shooting style to their character and emotions, so that the final result will encompass the true uniqueness of their moments.
