Hello

do you know... what photography is?

I am a professional photographer working for more than a decade based in Athens, Greece but also located in Corfu and Mykonos islands. I have collaborated with many newspapers and magazines, advertising companies, hotels, shops and other while have been specialized in street photography, fashion, still life, interiors and exteriors.

I enjoy my work and always have as priority to please my customers by giving the best of myself.

It is the physical evidence of a past time in which we capture, in order to remember for ever.

When I am not taking photos, I enjoy travelling around the world. I am pretty happy when I get to do both. I have been working as a photographer for magazines and newspapers since 2004 and been fortunate enough to document people all over the world.

I am originally from Johannesburg, South Africa but grew up in Corfu, Greece.I love to create pictures that tell stories as well as documentary people in their most honest and vulnerable moments.

My work is a collaboration with my clients. I am not a strict photographer that only captures what is there; I am capturing how I am feeling about it as well. Only interested in real smiles, real expressions and real motions.

I have learnt during my time as a photographer that my favourite images are created when there is a genuine communication between the person I am photo shooting and myself.

My intension is to help create the space for my clients to be themselves and above anything else to remember what they felt on their photo shooting day.
