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 very much interested in History, Archaeology theater and cinema. 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 like the so called "pictorial" photography because I beleive that in such you can better approach the reality of subjects. Documentary photography 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..
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...

    Dear Alex, I followed your advice to seek for pictures of Balafas. Wow, now I will try to acquire a book of him via internet. And I have learned that your pictures of Greek people from the North are well inspired by his work and his way to look at their living. Brussels is history for me, my new job will include business trips to Caspian region. Will have the Leica and the 28lens with me. Philipp

    I feel for your love of film, I also had a very hard time to leave analogue and switch to digital but had no choice, Namibia is remote and the films were unattainable and to have them processed was just about impossible, so I switched but I still mourn the depth of color of using film. I have the D700 as well but am thinking of getting a 2nd body as changing lenses in dust storms is not really fun. best regards,cathy

    se a te han dato le vertigini, figurati a me che soffro di cervicale e domani vado dall'otorino (forse anche labirintite)
