BIOGRAPHY
Photography together with music are my two major mistresses! I continuously flert with them and maybe some day I'll get involved with them professionally. Unfortunately, my generation seems to turn away from anything that has do with art and although I consider myself an artist in mind and soul I myself recently finished economic and management studies in the U.S and England. Maybe it will come into use for an artistic endeavour. Photo.net is a jewel and I have learned a lot from everyone here. Most importantly I've learned through my mistakes. Sometimes a harsh critique is the most valuable piece of information you can get: as long as it explains why and how to correct poor results. If anyone feels unjustly rated by me, may they know that I try in a poor critique to be constructive, and in most cases, give an explanation to help them improve. By no means can one be an authority in art due to its purely subjective nature so what is important is how we all feel and any comments on our work is just an opinion. If anyone feels they have received unjustly a poor and/or uneplained rating please alert me in any way. I am more than happy to explain my point of view and share any knowledge. In my photographic activity I am mainly attracted to landscape-cultural-nature photography and slowly uploading work I've done in Greece and its islands and other countries: USA-Czech republic-United Kingdom. **My website is still under construction but will soon be ready**
