Sotiris Zafeiris

After studies on artistic photography with acclaimed photography teacher Plato Rivellis and being a member of the Photography Cycle in Athens, I finished my BA studies on photography in 2001 after attending the Photography Department of TEI Athens (Technical University).

During and after my studies I worked as photographer artist in residence for various councils, teacher of photography, I have organized photography events and exhibitions.

Late 2001 I relocated to the UK-London where during 2003 I formed my own company of multimedia and 360VR photography with the name IMMERSIVE360. I was the Creative Director and main photographer of the company creating 2d panoramic images and 360VR panoramas for corporate use. With Immersive360 I have done many photography projects such as Thames Luxury Charters, Design Museum, London Fashion Show, Capio Private Hospitals, Rocco Forte and Royal Garden Hotels and others. We also won the Award of the Innovative Business of the year of 2006. In 2006 I was also a finalist for the Cannes Sony Photographic Awards. After Immersive360 i relocated to Fuerteventura-Canary Islands where i worked as the Creative Director of La Isla Tranquila, a visual multimedia travel and business guide for the Island of Fuerteventura.I have designed and photographed the visual content for the guide.I also worked as events photographer for various local events and traditional festivities. I also worked as a professional freelance photographer for sports events, architecture, portraiture, editorial and advertising photography. Coming back to Athens the last year i work as a freelance photographer with advertising companies and magazines from Greece.

I have participated in various solo and group exhibitions in Athens and the UK with most memorable the Museum of Benaki in Athens. I have published my photographs in various publications such as the Sunday Times, Photographos magazine, Views and Aspects photography book, Form and Design photobook, National Geographic for Greece.

I am photography supplier to various photolibraries such as Science Photolibrary and Untitled.

As an artist using the medium of photography to express myself my views are: I am particularly concerned on the photographic elements such as light, time, forms and content and the transformation of all these in a new whole that goes beyond "reality". With influences from photographic Masters of the past such as Eugene Atget, Garry Winogrand, August Sander, Walker Evans and others as well as from Eastern Mysticism every image comes from a particular feeling being in a "trance" or a creative joy beyond words. My photographs are a personal comment on what is happening around us and it is not visible through our senses but it can be experienced through feelings.
