Photography 101 Workshops 2019
INTERNATIONAL AWARDED PHOTOGRAPHER & CINEMATOGRAPHER/DOP
Panos has a style that marries color, light and perspective with emotion. He is an artist, editor and technician. His first multi-award-winning film, ‘Greek Skies’ involved 55,000 photos, 825 hours of shooting, 8400 kilometers of travel, 650 hours of editing, and countless hours of praying.
His detail oriented vision has led him to earn recognition from the prestigious festivals around the world.
Panos began taking photos at the age of seven, clutching the precious Kodak his father had given him as a gift. In their small village of Agria, the boy soon found an important outlet in the creativity of the photographer’s lens, and quickly honed his professional eye.
After his miraculous healing from cancer, Panos devotes his mission to those in need, less fortunate and most importantly to Glorify God for the gift of life.
I love teaching photo enthusiasts how to make the most of their cameras and imaging software.
Workshops and Private Lessons in our 101 Photography are taught differently than most “cookie cutter” workshops.
– Questions and comments are encouraged throughout the entire class.
– The class may be modified on the fly if the class seems to want to go in a certain direction.
– I try to effectively convey the “how and why” of photography, not just “click by numbers” approach. In other words, I want you to know why a technique works so that you can apply that technique beyond the examples from class. “Teach a man to fish…. right?”
I look forward to helping you reach your artistic goals.
