I work as an auto me­chanic, and in my free time I en­joy my two favourite hob­bies: pho­tog­ra­phy and mo­tor­sports. I got into pho­tog­ra­phy about six years ago – I par­tic­u­larly like pho­tograph­ing land­scapes, which re­quires you to be very thor­ough and dis­ci­plined to get the best re­sults, but I also like ac­tion pho­tog­ra­phy, which is more about split-sec­ond tim­ing and also in­volves an el­e­ment of luck some­times.

I have al­ways en­joyed look­ing at paint­ings and beau­ti­ful pho­tos, and I want my pho­tos to have an artis­tic qual­ity, and to con­vey some­thing of the magic that in­spired me to take the shot. I have stud­ied the work of many great pho­tog­ra­phers over the years, in­clud­ing the land­scapes of Joe Cor­nish and the wave and ocean pho­tog­ra­phy of Clark Lit­tle.

I spend many hours out­doors with my cam­era, and I es­pe­cially like to take pho­tos dur­ing the golden hours of sun­rise and sun­set. At the mo­ment I’m en­joy­ing cap­tur­ing long-ex­po­sure seascapes, for which my Lee Big Stop­per and other ND fil­ters are in­valu­able – I’ve taken pho­tos us­ing ex­po­sures of up to ten min­utes.

I live in the city of Ioan­nina, in north-western Greece, at the
