Hello, Holla, Hairetai (the Greek version)!!
My name is Athanasios and my surname is Papadopoulos. That is a very typical Greek surname if you do not know that already 🙂
Allow me to introduce my self.
In a few words…I was born and raised in Thessaloniki – Greece.
My father was a cinematographer and supported me in my decision studying photography in Great Britain.
I have been awarded a Masters degree in photography from a British university and I have won numerous photographic awards in wedding photography and also in travel photography.
Regarding wedding photography, my two biggest achievements were to be selected as one of the worlds top 10 destination wedding photographers of year 2011 (“Brides” magazine “Conde Nast Travellers”) and one of the top 100 international wedding photographers for year 2016 (by “wedding photographers society”)!
During a Wedding day, people experience intense moments and I am there to record them and describe them with my photographic images. I do not interfere and try to be «transparent» and capture the moment, the feeling, the expression, the situation!
The only photographic session at which I interfere during the day and give instructions and directions is when I am left alone with the couple in order to have their wedding portraits, which I name «Creatively Directed Wedding Portraits”.
Therefore my photographic style and aesthetics is a mixture of “Wedding Photojournalism” and “Creatively Directed Wedding Portraits”.
As an International wedding photographer I am available on wedding assignments worldwide.
