About me

 

I was born on the 3d-12-1943 in Thessaloniki Greece. I am a gynaecologist-obstetrician specialized in Infertility and In Vitro Fertilization(I.V.F). I'm also much interested in History, Art, Archaeology theater and cinema in which I like to refer in my photos. In the last fifteen 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'm doing my best to keep in touch with all modern and..metamodern fields in photography but, 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.
Time passes though and the worse thing is to be left behind and loose contact with the... dragon fly pixel! Honestly for how much longer we'll still be able to get the delight of the Velvia and Provia film marvels? Even in London they are becoming a scanty luxury...
