Life takes us on unexpected journeys...
Although for a long time I thought I would be a neuroscientist, I eventually left the ivory towers of Cambridge University and Harvard to follow my first love: photography. As an eight-year-old, I was enamoured with a Mamiya rangefinder film camera. Today, as a fine-art photographer and as an unrepentant romantic, I’m still committed to working with film.
I live in Cyprus, a beautiful island in the Mediterranean, with my wife, photographer Alexia Themistocleous (sweetmamaphoto.com) and our two children (4 and 6). As a cultural omnivore, my interests are as eclectic as the island we ’ve made our home: riding my horse, impressionism, playing jazz on the piano, interior design, and fashion. I’m happiest when I’m on the move, whether sauntering through the bright piazzas, narrow calles, and half-sunk stairs of Venice, or taking Lady (our dog) for a walk. When Alexia and I are not on adventures with our two children, you might find us rustling up a Tartiflette Savoyarde or drinking a Spritz Veneziano looking out over the Mediterranean.
As I have discovered, each couple is its own world – a tapestry of shared tastes, memories, and laughter. It’s my privilege to tease out the threads of those histories in a shoot which is both visually exquisite and radiantly true to your individuality as a couple.
What inspires us
We have been married for almost a decade no. We feel our own relationship is a constant stream of creativity, mutual mentorship, tenderness, strength and fulfilment, and our greatest inspiration when we photograph other couples!
We went from married to parenthood all while maintaining this business. We are doing our best to run it in a way that will inspire our two kids, Demetra and Alkiviades, to do whatever they choose with passion and a great sense of responsibility!
Our heart sings when we travel! We have traveled in four continents and even back-packed Europe! But our favorite places in the world are Tuscany, Venice, and the Loire Valley in France! We 'd like to think that we photograph less with our cameras and more with the experiences we collect from our travels!
