For those about to rock, I salute you...
I first held a camera at a Sisters of Mercy concert in Athens back in '97. It was only a tiny compact one with a built-in flash and the results were pretty bad, but I got instantly hooked on live photography and my world has never been the same since. I have been chasing artists and bands for that perfect unique onstage moment all over the world. Following my passion I have gone to various gigs and festivals around the globe, meeting some of the most amazing characters.
In the first few years I wasconcentrating on the gothic scene, but these days I'm likely to shoot anybody from Alice Cooper to Milva and my portfolio ranges over a very wide musical spectrum.
My work has seen the light of a variety of media:
CDs ::: Clan of Xymox - Live, Diamanda Galas - La Serpenta Canta
books ::: Mick Mercer – 21st century Goth
magazines ::: SONIK, Darklife, Zillo, Snoozer, Music Life, Metal Hammer
web ::: avopolis, raymanzarek.us, Diamanda Galás, Clan of Xymox, starvox and -oh so- many others.
I am currently based in Greece, contributing work to avopolis, SONIK and Metal Hammer Greece. I am always interested in new bands, magazines and ideas and I would love to hear from you. If you'd like me to cover your gig/concert/event or contribute photos to your publication, get in touch and we can discuss it further.
