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 both the digital and film medium.
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 me
Our volunteering work
Both Alexia and do our best to give back to the community that has been so good to us, and encourage others to do so as well. You can find out more here
I went from married to parenthood all while maintaining this business. My wife, Alexia, is a constant stream of creativity, mutual mentorship, tenderness and strength. Together, we are doing our best to run our businesses 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! Meet our family in Venice!
My heart sings when I travel! My wife and I have traveled in four continents and even back-packed Europe. I 'd like to think that I photograph less with my camera and more with the experiences I collect at each magical place I travel to.
