Here is a recent shooting made for commercial use by the Greek dealer of a major nutritional supplements company. This was done on location, in a traditional bodybuilding-oriented gym in Athens.
This is from a portrait shooting for a young and talented classical piano performer/teacher named Elina Iordanoglu. The whole session was shot before and during one of her recitals, on location.
he Athens Circus Festival is a yearly institution now in its 6th year and counting.
The event is organized by Circus Dayz in association with Technopolis of Athens, an open venue in the heart of the city. The aim of the festival is to produce an event where all circus acts can be showcased, being a home for different international and Greek artists and collectives. For them, this is a chance for ideas and thoughts to be exchanged but, furthermore and most importantly, to showcase their craft to the Athenian public. In the duration of the Festival, workshops, concerts and shows are held, for the pleasure of the discerning audience.
A few days ago, I had the great pleasure to shoot at an exciting performance, expertly comprising elements of dance, aerial acrobatics, live music and audio-visual feeds, all carried out by a very talented team of artists.
The group in question is called “Nefelopetra” (which is, of course, Greek, and could be translated as “Cloudstone”), and was formed in 2009 by Nefeli Markaki and Petros Politis. At this point I will let their own words describe the modus operandi:
It was this time of the year again, for the annual Zombie Walk event; this is always arranged for the last Saturday before the end of the Carnival, which was last Saturday in Greece.
You can read more about the Zombie Walk phenomenon in my blog entry for last year’s event. This time the general theme for the event was based on the hugely popular “Stranger Things” 2016 TV series.
A couple of months ago I had the opportunity to shoot at an event organized by Requiem For Greece. The main concept is that of a live role playing game based upon the Chronicles of Darkness and Vampire: The Requiem (Second Edition) from Onyx Path Publishing.
I love vintage cars; it would probably be obvious from several past similar shootings, which I do any time I have the change. Being also a bass player I also love electric basses, especially vintage and hotrod/modified ones.
