Vangelis Kalos, International awarded wedding photographer
I grew up in Athens and for the past eight years I have been living, studying and working in Trondheim (Norway).
I am interested in every kind of photography as long as it gives me the feeling of creativity.
I work mainly with digital format, but I also work with black&white films. Photography is the medium in which I can best express myself: it synthesises art, inspiration, technology and connects me with nature and people.
After many years of dedicating myself to black and white photography, with many hours spent in the darkroom, in 2008 I moved to digital. Following this change in format I have enhanced my photographic capabilities, styles and interests.

photographic project "be as you are"...
Aside my work that is available in this website, I am running a photographic project which celebrates the female beauty in a natural and honest photographic way.
My portfolio consists of a collection of analogue/film, polaroids and digital photographs, with the duty to respect and appreciate the models as they really are.
The whole procedure of the photo sessions manifests what I call "pure photography" and gives value to the interaction with the models in real time and not later in the post-production of the images.
My photographic project is available in a dedicated portal, please press the following link.
