Shownotes


Until photography became a cornerstone of his life, Dimitris used his camera on his travels to make the normal touristic shots. „Remembering my life through the art of photography is what keeps me going.“ These days, taking pictures has a different meaning for him.

He says: „Sometime in 2010 and after a series of events I discovered artistic photography. Got totally hooked and since then photography is a part of my life everyday. I started as a street photographer, but nowadays I will make photos of anything I find having artistic value. Family, friends, objects and still enjoying the streets. Remembering my life through the art of photography is what keeps me going.“

Among the photographers who have greatly influenced his style are Lukas Vasilikos and Achilles Nasios. About the importance of having a mentor in photography, Dimitris says: „I think they are very important, because they have the experience and have developed a vision. Through discussions with them you discover things you have never thought of. It’s impressive how a photo that you might not be able to fully appreciate can change though the feedback of others – and ultimately it makes you look at it in another way. It’s not only all about changing your opinion about that particular photo. But you start thinking in other aspects. "

„You can find exciting things to photograph at your doorstep and even in the smallest of places.“

For example, when I came back from India I still was very focused on street photography even though I had already started to work on other things.

And it was Achilles who encouraged to further broaden my view. He reminded me that photography was all around me. You don’t have to go to India to take interesting pictures. You can find exciting things to photograph at your doorstep and even in the smallest of places. These things you might eventually discover yourself with time. But a good mentor can speed up that process in a helpful way. That’s why I think that mentors are needed in photography.“

Fernweh

In meinem Podcast interviewe ich Menschen, die ihre Reisen zu Erlebnissen jenseits der eigenen Komfortzone machen. Die Kamera spielt dabei eine große Rolle.

Fotografie

Die Fotografie ist ein Türöffner. Eine „Eintrittskarte“ in eine neue Welt.  Mit der Kamera tauchst du noch tiefer in einen Ort ein und kannst ihn bewusster erforschen.

Persönliches Wachstum

Reisen ist die beste Lebensschule. Die Fotografie kann dir nicht nur helfen, Land und Leute besser zu verstehen. Sondern auch noch mehr über dich selbst zu lernen.
