ABOUT ME

I started out in the Australian film industry in 2004. As an assistant I prepped gear and travelled across Australia and internationally, working with some of the country's best directors such as Baz Luhrmann, Jane Campion and George Miller, and training under some of Australia's best cinematographers such as John Seale ACS ASC, Russell Boyd ACS ASC and Andrew Lesnie ACS ASC.

While working in the industry I studied photography in Sydney, and learnt black and white darkroom photography for a number of years. Later I moved to the US to specialise in cinematography, where I trained on shooting 16mm and 35mm film.

I'm currently based in Sydney, but have a full Greek/EU passport and will travel anywhere for the right job. I'm a member of the Australian Cinematographers Society and in 2012 my work was recognised with a Gold ACS award.
