Welcome to my private online photo portfolio!
My name is Saki or Atha (from Athanasios) and I am passionate about two things: photography and travel.
My passion in photography lies in capturing night or blue hour shots, which I find particularly enchanting. There is something magical about photographing the city lights at night, and while it can be challenging, the results are always worth the effort. I have a keen eye for composition and a deep love for interpreting the art of photography. Additionally, I enjoy post-processing my photos to bring out their full potential, and have developed my own style of editing night shots. My editing technique aims to capture the full spectrum of light, down to the smallest detail, and I avoid relying on HDR/DRI or any other automated processes. Instead, each photo is crafted individually, by assembling different layers and exposures.
In addition to my love for photography, I am also an avid traveler. I believe that travel opens our eyes to new cultures, experiences, and perspectives, and enriches our lives in so many ways. I love discovering new destinations and capturing the essence of each place through my lens. I am excited to share my love for night shots and photography, as well as my passion for travel with you. Please feel free to take a look around my page and let me know if you have any questions or comments.
Last but not least, I reside in Hamburg, Germany and consider myself to be a hybrid of German and Greek cultures. I am rational like a German, but also emotional like a Greek, and take pride in my Macedonian (Greek) and Byzantine (Greek) heritage, which you may notice reflected in my photos. The latter, without any intention of conveying a politically motivated statement, either directly or indirectly.
