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.

Blend In

This is a fashion editorial that we did with my talented friend Yiorgos Mesimeris in the streets of Plaka, Athens. The idea was obvious; Blending in with the ambience. Seven different minimalist looks with backgrounds to match. The gorgeous Tilde Rasmussen from D Models was in town this rainy day and Marita Politou made sure her hair and make up matched the mood.

Istanbul World Tourism Forum 2016

A few weeks ago I was invited by Blogger Casting to attend the World Tourism Forum in Istanbul. It was a great chance to visit this great city again and also stay at the seductive W Istanbul.. Although I was a bit unlucky with the weather, I did manage to shoot some photos which I have included in this post.

Taygetus

My latest visit to my hometown Kalamata, Messinia, was accompanied by bad weather. But as my friend and fellow photographer Thodoris claims, that’s the best time to go out and shoot. And that’s exactly what I did. I didn’t find any friends that could join me, so I took Grappa (you know, man’s best friend) and we drove to the mountains. It was pouring but the thick fog really got me going…one of my favorite visits in Taygetus so far. I have also included some pictures I took in December in the same area, to make this my first post in 2016! My next goal is to climb this mountain to its peak (2407m) and photograph everything along the way.

Industrial E75

Last week my friend Fanis, aka @fanellas and I decided to go on a little scouting trip, to find some interesting spot for photography. We decided to leave Athens and head north. While driving on the national highway E75 we saw some empty silos on the side of the road so we took the first exit and headed there. What we found was quite interesting. Here is a selection of the photos I took. We are definitely going back soon…
