Who Is Behind All This
My name is Thanos Chatzitsakos
I am a Web & Graphic Designer from Greece.

Being a Graphic Designer, I used to retouch images on Photoshop long time ago, and do some remastering in general (color correction, cutout, editing). But I didnt own a camera back then.
At some point, I realized that I actually like working with photos more than I thought I would, so it felt right to get a camera in my hands.
I got my first DSLR, a Canon (EOS 700D), its kinda basic and for sure an entry level DSLR, but I fell in love with it since day one and I'm using it nearly every day.
I rarely use the kit lens (EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM), when i need to get wide shots I use Canon's pancake lens (24mm f/2.8).
But my personal favorite is my prime 50mm f/1.4 lens, using it with my Softbox i find it a killer combo for portrait shots.
I love runing personal projects like some of the ones you ll be seeing here.
Being free to run my own projects, keeps me creative and helps me re-discover my own limits.
Though i was fortunate enough to be working on professional projects too, on my early beginning as a photographer.
I try my best to be creative and work with what I got.
Thankfully, I have lots of friends with cameras, every now and then, we ll go out shooting, mainly street photography.
Often we show eachother our work and get a critique and insightful comments.
I find it extremely important to have professional contacts, from other photographers to makeup artists, hair stylists, models, Videographers, even computer designers and web developers.
I recently moved in London, a city with amazing opportunities for street or nature photography, however I travel back and forth to Greece often for client meetings.
Thank you for taking the time and looking into my work, it really means allot to me.
P.S. oh, and ...
ALWAYS SHOOT RAW!
