My family and friends have been my greatest pillars of support in my endeavors. Words can hardly capture the depth of my gratitude for their unwavering love and encouragement. I am fortunate to have wonderful parents, two amazing siblings, and a loving partner who shares in the joy of raising our two beautiful children. The essence of who we are is often shaped by those around us, and I consider myself immensely blessed to be surrounded by such a supportive family and friends.
Throughout my journey in photography, I’ve had the privilege of meeting many incredible individuals in the industry. Their support goes beyond just providing equipment like bags, cameras, or drones. It’s the encouragement of my dreams, those crucial five-minute conversations that shift perspectives, or simply the boost needed to strive further. This page is a tribute to those who have joined me on this journey through my photography career. While I may not be able to thank them enough, I believe they understand my immense appreciation, and I am always there for them just as they have been for me.
Action for Wildlife is a group, composed of dedicated volunteers, that is committed to rescuing and treating wild animals in Greece. They provide first aid to sick, exhausted, or injured wildlife. Upon recovery, these animals are released back into the wild. Their efforts span over two decades, welcoming anyone eager to support Greek wildlife, even without veterinary experience. Funded solely by subscription fees, they persist in their wildlife protection mission, driven by a strong sense of unity and purpose.
As a content creator for Action for Wildlife, my role involves producing images, photographs, and videos to promote the organization’s mission. Through this partnership, I aim to inspire everyone to contribute in any way they can to the conservation efforts of wildlife and nature in Greece. Information on how you can support these vital efforts can be found on their website.
Repella, one of the oldest and largest photo stores in Thessaloniki, has been a steadfast supporter of mine for as long as I can recall. I spent seven full years working there, during which time Costas, the store’s owner, became like family to me. We’ve shared numerous experiences over those years, and I can’t recall a single serious disagreement between us. More than anything, Costas is an exceptional human being, a quality I value above all else. It goes without saying that to this day, most of my photography equipment comes from his store.
Manios Cine Tools, an outstanding company based in Athens, represents a range of high-value brands, including Canon, Think Tank, Peak Design, 3 LEGGED THING, Aputure, and many others. There’s much to say about Cecilia (who shares her name with my daughter), Tonia, and Andreas. The key thing is that they are wonderful people, radiating positive energy and good vibes. Our meetings, whether at the company’s offices or at photography shows in Greece and internationally, are always enjoyable. We engage in endless conversations about photography and cinematography. They are my go-to individuals for a second opinion or when I need specialized gear.
