Born in the States from Greek parents, and ever since my childhood I was blessed to breathe the atmosphere of three inspiring cultures: American, Cretan and that of the picturesque village of Plomari on the island of Lesvos. During different periods of my life, I had a chance to live in the places such as Fairfield, Connecticut, Plomari on Lesvos, San Luis Obispo in California and now permanently Chania on Crete. All those places and their people inspired me and left a significant mark on my vision of world. They helped me to precise what type of life style I would like to follow and how I could introduce it to the others. Photography entered into my life more than twenty years ago and it never abandoned me while I was developing a comprehension of simplicity and the importance of light in our lives. I have always been an outdoor person. Climbing mountains, Para-gliding, Scuba-diving, sailing, running short and long distances, and even cycling professionally for many years around the world. This involved a lot of traveling and lots of unforgettable images through my head. Residing in Chania on the island of Crete in Greece, allows me to bring into my photography the most precious element of my images, natural light coming through the blue skies and resonating from the beloved Mediterranean sea. I am a life style photographer capturing images of people and their special moments. Most of my photo sessions take place in the Western part of Crete, but I am always excited to be commissioned , anywhere else in the world.
