Four Seasons Staff

Every member of staff at the Four Seasons Astrir Palace Hotel Athens is committed to doing everything in their power to make you feel at home. Tender loving care in hospitality comes with a smile.

Nowadays, we have the means to create a profile for every guest and to know what they like so that we can make sure they have it, but it’s also important that we respect their privacy.

MYRMIDONES_dimitris_vlaikos_photo

MYRMIDONES photo-book release

MYRMIDONES_dimitris_vlaikos_photo"MYRMIDONES" is the imprint of Dimitris Vlaikos' search on the island of Aegina for the last 20 years.
Focusing on people, the photographer walks a path of observation and understanding of the elements composing the place where he was born and raised.
Light, a key tool in his work, turns into an object of study in terms of its effect on the character, perception, creativity and course of life, both of the island's inhabitants and of himself. Through his lens he wishes to discover how his experiences have become the memory which influences and shapes his choices, his perspective and the aesthetic approach to his work.
The images in the book present moments from the daily life of the inhabitants, portraits of people interacting with their environment, and all those elements that make up the culture which inspires, challenges and embraces the Myrmidons of yesterday and today.

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 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.

El Sistema Greece "The orchestra of life"

El sistema Greece, The orchestra of life for Kappa Magazine Cover.
«In 1975, conductor Jose Antonio Ampreu created the first youth orchestra to develop at El Sistema. Believing that music is primarily a factor of social development and integration, he tried to remove the poor children of Venezuela from the streets and protect them from the various dangers they faced in the slums, including them in music and more. Thus, he was inspired by the pioneering educational program of El Sistema, striving to offer children more than just learning a musical instrument – cooperation, self-expression, discipline, ambition. All of this, summed up in the famous slogan of El Sistema “Tocar y Luchar”, meaning “to play music and to compete”, remain the goals of the organization, which now has branches around the world. As Panagiotis Tsiridis, pedagogical director of El Sistema Greece, says, “the object of our work is not music, but the child. Our goal is to lead each child to creation, with music as the main tool “. El Sistema Greece has been operating in our country since 2016, offering free lessons of violin, viola, cello, horn, trumpet, flute, clarinet and percussion, lessons in choir, music kinetics and music theory, “to children and young people regardless of origin, language and religion». The photoshoot took place at Maliaras private school. Text by Myrto Katsigera.

Ermis Music composer for the cover of Kappa Magazine of Kathimerini

Styling: @iro_tsou
Photo editor: @ioannachronopoulou
Interview: @vlasis_kostouros

"I am self-taught on the piano. My older sister, Eleni, had started classes and so we bought a piano at home. I was excited, I was experimenting on my own and at 13, after endless efforts, I wrote my first melodies. One of the first pieces I wrote was about a theatrical performance of "Glass World" at school. It was a subtle and fragile sound. At the same time I wrote another piece, which my friends encouraged me to send to the Ministry of Tourism, because it reminded them of ouzo and Greek summer. I sent in a random mail that I found the piece and a letter and they immediately replied that they like it very much and they want me to write them one more. I went crazy. It was the first time someone showed acceptance for my music. Eventually these songs played in the Visit Greece campaigns."
