He successfully completed his studies after 3,5 years although the average was 5 and he graduated with honors as one of the top 3 students of the year.
After that he became the youngest Informatics Professor at 2 educational institutions. Later on he started his Master in "Digital Media" at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. At the same time, he started to study wedding photography, because he loved to work at events where people are happy and smiling all the time, and started to combine the "knowledge with the talent".
He uses his own special "Photography Style" where he expresses himself, his perception of everything that happens around him as well as the feelings that he perceives that day, more freely. In a way that he observes what is "really true" at the wedding day and he makes sure that he records it, with his own unique photography eye.
He believes that having the talent to "see" a moment and the knowledge to "click" this moment makes the perfect combination.
In the end, all the beautiful memories, the true feelings and the magic of the wedding day, shall remain for a lifetime through the wedding photographs. And that's why he believes that photography is a passion that shall never fade.
He works as a wedding photographer at Thessaloniki, Greece where his headquarters are but he also travels everywhere in Greece or abroad.
