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.

    La Campagne à Paris est un lotissement du 20e arrondissement de Paris. Il fut fondé en 1907 par le pasteur Sully Lombard sous forme d'une coopérative destinée à permettre l'accès pavillonnaire à des personnes à revenus modestes.
    Bonne journée.
