About me

I was born in Filia, Lesvos, Greece 
and I am a permanent resident of Mytilene, Lesvos.  

After many years of working as director of OTEShop branch 
located in Mytilene,  I retired in 2009. 

Upon doing a photography course offered by the Photography Club Of Mytilene (FEM),  and 
I became involved in photography its processes  and have since been trying to ‘work with light’ as best as I can.

I have been General Secretary of the board of directors of FEM and have participated in its exhibitions, 
and I have taught: 
the history of photography, the mechanics of the camera, the lenses and the rules of aesthetics, 
in the courses offered by FEM. 
Apart from these, I also organise the showing of documentaries having to do with photography, 
and films with an eye  to showing how photography is used to add to the director’s ‘message’. 

I am a big admirer of films especially those directed by Andrei Tarkovsky,Federico Fellini, Luchino Visconti, 
Ingmar Bergman, Fritz lang, Michelangelo Antonioni, Carl Theodor Dreyer, Luis Bunuel, Yasuijiro Ozu, 
Jean- Luc Godard, Kengi Mizoguchi, Vittorio De Sica, Elia Kazan.  

I have had the good fortune to attend seminars offered by teachers 
who opened my eyes to the truly wonderful world of photography. 
These seminars were taught by: Platon Rivellis,Vassillis Gerontakos, Labros Papanikolatos,Panayiotis Kasimis,
Lukas Vasilikos,Stella Johnson,Yiorgos Depollas,Stratos Kalafatis. 
I would like to thank them for their advice, knowledge and love. 
And of course, I extend my gratitude to the former president of Photography Club of Mytilene Stratis Tsoulellis 
who introduced me to photography.

I study and follow all the pioneers of the art of photography.
I often attend seminars and courses to be informed and to be taught ...

Katioula,Fani,Maria they are the women of my life and I thank them from the depths of my soul....
