THE KITE SURFERS PORTRAIT PROJECT

Chasing The Wind At Lefkada
THE STORY

I was fascinated by the kiteboarding action at Leftada in Greece when i visited with my wife. On my first visit I shot on the beach for two three hour sessions, shooting action and managing to get to know a lot of the riders.

The photos i got as well as the vibe, energy and kindness of the riders inspired me to initiate a special project to capture everything with more creative control and vision.

THE PROJECT

Two years later i managed to revisit Lefkada with my assistant photographer Giannis Magdalasidis and shoot my first fine art project, called “Suspended Flight”.

I focused on portraits of the members of the Lefkada Kitesurfing Club to showcase the human side and the unique character of each rider, in both a controlled studio environment that we set up in a gym and also in their natural environment at the beach.
