My family and friends are my biggest supporters in what I do. It is very difficult to express how grateful I am for their support and love. I was lucky to have a great mum and dad and two great siblings and of course my loving partner that bears the rising of our two beautiful children. A human being is defined by the people that surrounds him or her, and I am blessed to be surrounded by my family and friends (you know who you are).
During my photography career I met a lot of beautiful people in the photography industry, a lot of them support my projects and me personally. And I don’t mean providing me with bags, cameras, drones etc. Above material things, is the support of your dreams or just a five-minute talk that will change your perspective or give you an uplifting feeling to try more. This page is dedicated to people that are travelling with me and my images during my photography trip in life. I cannot thank them enough, but I am sure that they know how much I appreciate them, and I am there for them.
One of the oldest and biggest photo stores in my hometown Thessaloniki, Repella, has been my suporter for as long as I remember. I worked in the store for 7 full years, and basically I consider Costas, the owner of the store, my family. We have been through a lot together during that 7 years and I can’t remember one time we had a serious argument. Above all he is a great human being, and that is the most important quality for a person. No need to say that up until now I buy most of my photo gear from the store.
Manios Cine Tools is a great company based in Athens, representing high value brands, like Canon, Think Tank, Peak Design, 3 LEGGED THING, Aputure and many more. There are a lot to say about Cecilia (who has the same name with my daughter), Tonia and Andreas, but the basic thing is that they are great people, with positive energy and vibes. We always have fun when we meet at the company’s offices or in photography shows in Greece or abroad, and we always have to say things about photography and cinematography. They are the people I turn to when I need a second opinion for something or specialized gear.
