About me

 

I was born on the 3d-12-1943 in Thessaloniki Greece. I am a gynaecologist-obstetrician and I specialized for eight years in England in Infertility and In Vitro Fertilization(I.V.F). I'm also very much interested in History, Archaeology and cinema. I'm doing photography from my early teens ( more than fourty years) but in the last fifteen 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. Travel photography also interests me a lot. 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- mainly through my doughter who presently does a Master on Photography and Modern Arts in London- 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..
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 marvels? Even in London they are becoming a scanty luxury...

    Hello Alexander, I just popped in to say thankyou for your Easter wishes, and my I wish you a very happy and peaceful one, enjoy every moment of it.
    Here in the UK, sadly Easter seems to have got pushed into the background and almost forgotten. All the shops are open and there seem to be very few celebrations. Sad but true.

    Thank you again
    Sue
