My photographic focus is on bird- and nature photography on the island Cyprus. The Location in the Eastern Mediteranean and the year-round warm climate provides all migratory birds on his annual travel from Europe to North Africa and back a rest area for stopovers. Many birds remain also the wintering on the island and some, such as the "Cyprus Wheatear" or the "Cyprus Warbler" breed only on Cyprus.
In addition to photography I create also video documentaries about the bird life, landscape, interesting places and archaeological sites from bygone times. I reports on the nature and BirdLife of Cyprus currently in my blog
As a nature and bird photographer, I am an active member of the international bird protection organization BirdLife Cyprus. I support conservation actions and with photo and video posts for publications at exhibitions, in the website and magazine of the organization.

Photography was always a part of my life, whether in the family environment, in the clubs and in working life, the camera was there always a part of this. Particularly I like remember my "black and white photography time as I spent many hours in my own darkroom at home.
Lightroom and Photoshop now replace the darkroom. Countless digital photo and video recorded shots every day around the clock made with Smartphones, tablets, cameras and other devices. Much is immediately uploaded to the Web or even stream of humanity to view freely.
But is the snapping of everything and everyone the photograph which I imagine.
No, but when I´´ am stay as a nature photographer somewhere alone in nature with the Camera, waiting for Animal ore Bird or capturing Landscape, this often brings me back in the time in the Black- and White Darkrum for many hours.
