Alexandros is an adventurous, positive, energetic, and outgoing personality. His thirst for new challenges in life remains a constant need. From his early teens, the camera was an essential companion that followed him everywhere. Nightclub & Event photography marked the beginning of his quest for exploration with intense photo shooting, image editing, and social media activity – eventually achieving his own style. Despite his freelance shootings in corporate events and various other experimental works in still life, interior design, scenery, and weddings, it was portrait photography that eventually revealed his genuine interest, capturing his subjects mainly in black & white.
During his studies and research work as a photographer, he became influenced by 20th-century portrait & fashion photographers, such as Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, David Bailey, and Peter Lindbergh. Clearly, through their minimalistic approach and embracement of simplicity, Alexandros attempted to share similar work in portrait photography during his final project work leading towards his graduation, titled “Less is More.”
After building a strong foundation in photography, Alexandros made a career transition to the technology industry. He now works for Google, channeling his passion for creativity and innovation in a different domain. While he continues to explore his love for photography, his focus has shifted to his role at Google, where he contributes to the exciting world of technology and brings his unique perspective as a photographer.
Portrait photography remains an interest with enormous challenges in a continuous effort to enhance his skills in capturing a subject’s character and personality.
His long-term ambition is to become a renowned fashion photographer, striving for “simplicity which is the ultimate sophistication”.
