About me


I was born in 1943 in Thessaloniki Greece. I'm interested in History, Art, Archaeology theater and cinema in which I like to refer in my photos. In the last years I'm tending more to the digital field. My themes are mainly landscapes, ecology and nature, thus I love "static" photography using tripod, hand photometer and quite often medium format. I prefer the so called "pictorial" photography because I beleive that in such you can better approach the reality of subjects. Documentary and journalism photography refering to social problems and everyday life is also very much to my liking.
My favourite equipment are the D700 and D800 from the NIKON family with a collection of dedicated, SIGMA, and TAMRON lenses and from medium format a 645D Autofocus MAMIYA( PHASE ONE) with a LEAF APTUS D22 digital back.
I must admit, that I am a rather old fashioned darkroom obsessionist stuck to good focusing, depth of the field, hand photometry, assessment of highlights and shadows detail, good contrast in b+w and the rest of the stuff that- once upon a time- was the Bible of the dark room fanatic!...On this aspect, to my opinion, Ansel Adams is unsurpassed..
It's not always easy to have good teachers in photography so, i beleive,it is much better to learn from each other and there is always time for that..
I thank you all for offering this chance to me.

    Dear Alexander,
    thank you so much for all your generous comments on my Olympia series ... and I really appreciate all the information you have given me - we had no guide and no written information, and wikipedia does not tell me enough, so I am grateful to find out from you what the old ruins are ... so fascinating !!!!
    I was actually there in the latter 80s backpacking and by train .... and I was surprised how much I had forgotten.
    Next stop Kerkira - but again only a visit for half a day as in all of these cruiseship stops !!
    greetings and thanks again !!!

    You did very well and you showed an ugly side of the beautiful in the other our country. Your text were excellent and I am with you in your such efforts!
    Unfortunately there is an unaccountability which many times, seeing such things, believe me weeps my soul...

    Alexander, thank you so much for your comment!
    This photo I posted of course does not belong to my own photographic style but because of yesterday's feast of St. Patrick, I thought to participate by my self in this event with an old photo of my last trip to NY, because since a few months I am a guest on American territory in New Jersey.
    I will be happy whatsoever to see your own photo of this temple, because I know that will be better.
    Me pollous xairetismous, Christos
