Food Photography for Hotel Grand Bretagne

Going through the photography process, challenging my self in new methods as a photography speaker, clients are always the best "creative friends" to unlock views and angles in order to please them and their viewers. Food photography, a common field for  magazines and advertising as well, it is a field that challenge the artist - food photographer to brake the rules and through his creativity, to serve a well cooked photography plate.

"In a spirit of renewal, Executive Chef Asterios Koustoudis of the Grand Bretagne and King George hotels in Athens has appointed new heads of restaurants at each venue. In doing this he's done what all good chefs should do, and used tried and tested ingredients in innovative ways to create excellent new results Experienced chef Nikos Livadias, who has worked in leading restaurants in Athens and on Santorini and Mykonos, arrives as the new chef de cuisine at Tudor Hall, promising to add a new dimension to modem Greek cuisine. He brings with him high aesthetic standards and a talent for creating dishes with fine lines and geometric shapes that entice at first glance. Food photography continuous with the young chef Giannis Liokas after stints in London at restaurants such as Fera at Claridge's and Davies and Brook with Daniel Humm. He returns to Athens to take the position of chef de cuisine at GB Roof Garden. The restaurant's menu remains definitively Mediterranean, but Liokas' style is a shade more homey, and the food is filling and no for the soul. Clearly devoted to creative Greek cuisine, Asterios Koustoudis is promoting fresh seasonal produce across all the menus focusing on dean flavors and supporting smaller, high-quality local producers. These underlying principles are evident in both restaurant and are Needy translated to the dishes themselves. As for the meal's sweet epilogue, the talented new assistant pastry chef Alexandros Koufas will supervise the preparation of recipes created by the distinguished 'Messier Arnaud Lehrer, while also creating his own stunning desserts for the degustation menu - impressive and delicious, like every ending should be. Beginnings too, should do this fantastic four has been brought together to create unforgettable high-quality gastronomic experiences in Athens".

Bureau Veritas Campaign 2021

The project was to show with commercial photography and specially portraits in action, how BUREAU VERITAS proves value of inspection technologies on ocean bulk ship.  An Oceanbulk vessel was the Bureau Veritas testbed for different types of remote inspection technologies and techniques (RIT) as BV, Oceanbulk and Glafcos take the lead in using robotic solutions for ship inspections.
Bureau Veritas (BV), a world leader in testing, inspection, and certification (TIC) has directed and supervised the testing, establishing ‘proof of concept’ and operational purpose, for remote inspection technologies and techniques, including an aerial drone, a miniature remotely operated vehicle (ROV) and magnetic crawlers, on an Oceanbulk double-skin supramax bulk carrier, built in 2008 and classed by BV.
The remote tools were supplied and operated for the purposes of the photoshoot by Glafcos Marine, a Greek technical services specialist, which has been developing and refining the marine application of these technologies for many years.The tests were conducted under the same conditions and, to secure the necessary information, were required at an ‘intermediate’ survey for a bulk carrier of the age of the subject ship, between the second and third class renewal surveys.

The photoshoot of the advertising campaign took place in Syros shipyards Greece where the vessel, making a short visit, was inspected during a recent call to the Neorion shipyard in Syros for work on the stern that required a specific ballasted condition.

Food Photography

Seeing food as an art expression gives you the choice, the joy to play with the impression of the food through the eyes. If the pleasure of the eyes comes before the pleasure of the taste, it has an effect on the taste.

Anthony_Howard_Portrait_commercial_Photographer_Athens-Greece_Dimitris_Vlaikos-1

when observing people, one is always amazed by the many different forms they take and the expressions a human being can have – expressing cultures, character, colors and habits. have you ever considered how unique each one of us is as we express our own culture, language, family, country, profession, artistic influences and way of life? we call this encapsulation a “portrait” and it is what i find most fascinating as i endeavor to capture it all in photographs.
