—  About

I was born and raised in Athens, Greece in 1992. Studied graphic arts but was more drawn into photography, in which I continued my studies. I became interested in commercial still life photography, particularly in food and beverage. In 2014, while finishing my studies I started working at one of the two largest in production food and beverage photography studios in Greece, Say Cheese Studio. Started as an assistant, but working in a challenging, high-paced environment required me to step-up my game fast and helped me to develop skills far beyond the technical aspect of photography. Learning to engage with clients and undertaking whole creative projects from start to finish. Photographer/Retoucher/Studio Manager is what described my work best. We were working with multiple clients in different sectors of the food and beverage industry. From brands like McDonald's, Nestlé, Unilever and FrieslandCampina to Michelin star restaurants like Botrini’s, Funky Gourmet and Varoulko. During my time there I always took advantage of any spare time to realize many personal projects along my good friend and fellow photographer John Triantafyllos. In September 2018 I left Greece for London, where I now work as a freelancer.

I enjoy the whole creative process from start to finish. Conceiving the idea, gathering all the equipment, props and people to achieve the image I have visualised. I strive for perfectionism and quality. I try to learn constantly and to expand my fields of knowledge in every aspect of my life and work. I believe in good cooperation and at knowing your field in the best way possible before contributing your ideas and cooperating with other professionals. I enjoy traveling and working with other people.
