A vivacious and energetic person easily at home in social groups, who thrives on hard work and a challenge. Eleni will keep on with any problem until she finds a solution and adapts well in any circumstances.
Eleni’s photographic style: She ‘sees’ photography as an art form. The key worlds in her portraiture are Glamour, Beauty, Perfection. She stages images in an artistic manner and edits them later to get a high-fashion look, yet she marriages this style with a photojournalistic approach to create drama. Eleni prides herself that her images reflect the true character of the person in the picture in an honest and comforting way. She doesn’t pose people, she sets up situations, she lets people to react in them, and she captures what is real and beautiful, coming straight from the heart. Eleni specialises mainly in Portraiture and Wedding Photography but she also undertakes private or commercial commissions in fine art, fashion, business and editorial.
