ioannis-pananakisWHO I AM

First of all I think is very funny to talk for myself in the “third” person, really, but I’m not gonna do it...So, Ioannis Pananakis...
I’m just kidding.

I was born in Thessaloniki,in the north part of Greece and my first involvement in photography was because of my father, who is a photographer (of course...) so from a very young age I was helping my father in a studio and in still life photography mostly, learning all the “secrets” and I was really very lucky not only that I had someone to help me, but also because I grow up in a period that the film,the black chamber and all those magical items was rulling the world of the photographer.

Parallel to the photography sector, I was studding freehand drawing for a couple of years, which is still my hobby and after that it was the time for the Greek Univercity and another 3 years to take my Diploma of Photography. From then I am working mostly as a freelance photographer and cooperate with many magazines,newspapers and companies in Greece like Greeka, but also international like Airbnb.

The last 5 years my base is in the beautiful island of Santorini and working as a Santorini wedding photographer, trying to do my best and capture this special day for you.Most couples come for their honeymoon photoshoot in Santorini or their pre/post wedding photo session, so my goal is to accomplish a result that will make you more than happy and meet your expectation of your dream photography session in Santorini.

My style in photography is more photo journalistic,I like to capture natural images and creative portraits but I am willing to follow your needs and personal style, for more editorial photoshoot.Generally, I cover all the mainland in Greece, not only Santorini, but I can also travel international upon request. That’s all I believe, now I am going to capture my photo, you know...the one that I’m holding the camera! No, I’m not gonna do that also...
