I was born in Greece but moved to Scotland in 1997. Coming from a warm climate, my first impressions were how wet this country was! Needless to say that my first impression of Scotland simply being one big puddle of dampness evaporated like dew drops in the morning sun, as soon as I started visiting the highlands. I was totally overwhelmed by the sheer beauty of Northern Scotland and this, in return, led me to rediscover my fascination with photography.
After falling in love with the Scottish countryside I bought myself my first SLR film camera and this is where it all began. I am now using Fujifilm digital cameras.
What is it that I like so much about taking pictures of natural landscapes? I like the feeling of being humbled by the beauty and majesty of locations. I also love the quality of natural light as it touches every part of a scene, especially during the ‘Golden hours’ and the challenge Scotland’s weather can throw at me. Do I have a favourite location? Not really; I am happy to be wherever there is beauty and beauty can be found all around me.
