It started as a regular exploration of the streets of Shoreditch, in London, that soon turned into a photo session, shooting portraits of my good friend Dimitris. It was a great opportunity to explore hidden locations, catch up with a good friend and try different camera technics and themes. Although not a model, Dimitris’ account is worth paying a visit.
Color is life. But B&W photography is art. It gives you that false feeling that time has stopped at a different time and era. I tend to capture and play with colors, but I find some very intriguing with B&W photography. This page features some of my recent B&W work.
Someone once told me that what you see it’s not always what you get. Sometimes you need to look at things from a different perspective to discover their true beauty. This perspective is what I try to unlock shooting the streets of the cities I visit.
When looking things from the top down, instantly, everything looks more exciting and interesting. Add #beautifuldestinations to the mix, and the result is magical. I carry my drone everywhere I’m allowed to fly to capture stunning scenery from an eagles’ perspective.
Portrait photography is often underrated these days. With many of us trying to capture unique and never-seen-before stills, we tend to forget that beauty sits right in front of us. Sometimes all it takes is a faded smile or a sided look to lighten up people’s faces. Those small, yet unique emotions is what I’m after.
The world we live in is beautiful. Often, we take it for granted not paying the right attention to our suroundings. All it takes is a second to step back and capture that moment in our memories for life. For everything else, I use my camera to capture the great outdoors and revisit memories that might get faded due to pass of time.
I tend to capture colorful, bright images that communicate happiness and life. But some times I go on the other side and start playing with shadows and darker colors. Welcome to my dark side.
I consider myself lucky to be living in London. That mix of old and new, is the city’s unique characteristic and something I can’t help but take pictures of, every time I pass by one of those stunning building.
Sometimes things are not as you see. You have to look closer to or from a different angle to unfold its true perspective and beauty. That angle is what I look out for when I shoot buildings and objects.
