Autumn in Santorini

Somehow Santorini has never lived up to the hype in my book. Perhaps this has something to do with me spending a part of my military service on this island back in 2001. It had been many years since I visited and I can say this island has changed a lot. A lot of development, many hotels and hundreds of houses have been built in areas that didn’t even exist residentially years ago. However, what has remained intact, is the amazing beauty that has made this island what it is today. A photographer’s dream, literally, everywhere you look you can snap an amazing photo. I was lucky enough to stay at Oia Mare Villas for a few days and explore beautiful Oia, one of my favorite regions on the island. It was also a good chance to test out my brand new Sony A6300! Check a selection of photos I made from my October visit in Santorini!

Summer closing in Kefalonia

Just like the last couple of years, there has to be at least one summer visit in the Ionian islands and to be more specific, in Kefalonia.  There are a few posts already about Kefalonia (and you can find them here, here, here and here) but I can’t ever get enough of this beautiful island. Especially when I have friend that like to pose for me around! Check some of the photos I took in August on the island!

Back to Nisyros

Two years later and I’m back on this little volcanic island on the southeast Aegean. This time I didn’t get the chance to go to the volcano but you can see the photos from my previous visit here. Nisyros is a very unique island, there is a very special energy to it (some say it’s the volcano) and some of the most otherworldly landscapes. I stayed at the wonderful village of Emporios again and had excellent food at Triantafylos’ taverna almost every single day. A must do apart from visiting the volcano is a day trip to the nearby island of Gyali for swimming or snorkeling. Below are some photos from my latest visit!

A week in Patmos

Patmos had been on my list for a while now and this July I finally made it there. It’s definitely a very special place and I would recommend it to everyone seeking tranquility in their vacation. I was lucky enough to be with friends that know the island very well so my time was well spent. I was even luckier to be a guest at the excellent villas Onar just a few minutes away from Petra beach which made the whole experience truly unforgettable. I will definitely try to be back next year!

MiRo

A few months ago I visited Nefeles Mainalon Resort to shoot an editorial for Celestino. We planned ahead with the rest of the team and we also collected some dresses from the Greek fashion designers MiRo. Here are some of the shots I chose from that particular shoot with our model Mariana. It was a very cold day on the mountain but we enjoyed every minute of it! Styled by Yiorgos Mesimeris muah Konstantinos Sakkas.

Bologna

My childhood friend Gina has been living in Bologna for many years now and although she always told me to visit I never made it. Until a few weeks ago that is, where I finally made a long weekend trip to this beautiful Italian city. And to be honest, three days are more than enough to see most of it and long enough to survive the fantastic but fatty food that comes with it. My favorite place for lunch was Tamburini and for dinner it was the excellent trattoria della Gigina! I returned to Athens feeling fatter than ever but I would definitely do it again soon. Here  are some photos from my trip!

Evrytania

Last weekend I was lucky enough to be invited for a long weekend at Oniropetra Boutique Hotel in Karpenisi, Evrytania. This region has been on my list for a while now but I never had the chance to arrange it properly. Luckily, Hotel Brain made it all very simple. The hotel is really great and I would definitely recommend it but what’s even better is their excellent breakfast. Below you will find some photos from the property and many photos from the fantastic region of Everytania. I need to go back soon and explore the beautiful nature and the surrounding, picturesque villages.

SILO

Remember the Silo ? Well this time my talented friend Yiorgos Mesimeris styled the handsome Alex Apostolou from VN Models and we did a men’s fashion editorial.
All clothes were from Dimitris’ Petrou “Empêchement” FW 2015-2016 collection.
A collection inspired by the city of light, Paris, through the eyes of the great French writer Emile Zola (1840-1902) as immortalized in one of the great works, revives the Germinal, with a modern approach and a nostalgic look at the past.
