NiAN for Nikos Anagnostopoulos
I was born in 1982 in Athens - Greece. I grew up in an environment in which photography was always present as my father was a press photographer. Still it was not before the age of 22, after studies in tourism and film, that I found my own way to photography. I started working in my father’s company and learned the crafts of operating, editing and taking pictures.
Finally, using my creativity and developing my skills through constant practice I was able to work, particular in baptisms and weddings where I was most interested in. In 2006, I founded my own press photography agency, A-Press Company, in which we mainly cover the photography of political and business events, like meetings, presentations, openings, celebrations and award ceremonies, as well as theatrical and musical stage performances. The year after, I became a member of the Greek Photo Reporter Union.
