Thomas Chrisohoidis started his fascinating photography career from a small darkroom in his parents home when he was only fifteen years old.
After finishing high school then the thrilling field of sports gained his attention and he made his breakthrough by capturing all of the big global sports events and their protagonists.
With his lens, he captured four Olympic Sports events, ten World Cups, and numerous Final Fours.
He adapted to the new era—from the analogue to the digital world—by always using the latest technological innovations.
Thomas Chrisohoidis created the biggest sports photo agency in South Europe, called "Action Images," and the first digital sports photo archive.
Then the most recognizable and prestigious artists and public figures let themselves loose at his lens. A series of portraits, photo shoots, and fashion campaigns followed thereafter.
He has published five annual photo albums in luxurious editions.
Since 2012, he has expanded his artistic field to moving images. He was captivated by the endless opportunities of air filming and has directed numerous music video clips, corporate videos, and film campaigns. All of these were connected by one principle: cinematic point of view of high aesthetics.
These last years, he has been dividing his time between Mykonos and Athens as a director and photographer.
How it all started
For years, friends and clients have been asking for photos of mine that they could use to decorate their houses and professional environments. The idea of actually creating a website where pictures of Greece could be available instantly to everybody crossed my mind when a friend told me, "I want to take Greece with me with your photos." Even though I had already moved on to the world of videography, I continued to capture still images of all the authentic scenes along the way. Old loves die hard, and here we are. A series of travelling photos of Greece, the result of years of travelling through the most iconic of the Greek islands, is already up, ready to travel and artistically invade your home and work environments.
Because Greece is the Sun that heals all.
Greece is Perfection. The Ideal.
Greece is Art. From where everything started.; from where A set out to find B.
Because Greece is the blue that meets the white to become blue again.
It is the palette of colours that merges into one when the Greek sun reigns.
Greece is her jasmine. The vine. The Basil. The vanilla sweet. The watermelon from the backyard. The tomato you cut from your garden.
Greece is authentic. She is the foundation upon which we built this world.
Because Greece is her traditions. The legends, the heroes, the circular dances, the festivals, the secret schools, the chapels with the cross that tears the sky, the monasteries, this burning faith in something greater…
Because Greece is not confined to her narrow geographical boundaries but extends to all that spreads like an epidemic of embrace all over the world.
Because Greece is universal. She is her endless touch, unceasing through the age
And this is my Greece: Greece through my lens.
I want my pictures to create vibrations. I want them to smell. I want them to taste, to include sounds and whispers—to activate all the senses.
I want them to speak directly to your heart. To unlock your inner euphoria.
And in this digital world that everyone clicks, I don’t click if I don’t have “the” click.
That’s why I want you to take Greece with you. To deliver Greece to you, in your home.
Because Greece is the Lighthouse—the unbreakable light that will illuminate you, even when the curtains come down…
