My name is Frank, but among the photographic circles I sign under the artistic alias of "Gimme". I m 35 years old from Athens, Greece and I m part-time & amateur photographer shooting various kinds of photographic themes, i.e. portrait photography, themes, abstractive, (un)conventional photography, landscapes etc.
I graduated from the School of Photography at Piraeus, Greece under the guidance and teaching of Mr. Kimon Axaopoulos.
After graduation, I joined the photo team "Photoerevnites", which consists of graduates of the abovementioned School, and I am a full time member and active photographer of the team. Also, I am responsible for the role of public relations and communication of the abovementioned team.
My main tool of photography is Digital but I can work (if required) with analogue/film/slide photographic equipment. As you may tell my greatest passion is Photography - every aspect of it whether it be landscape, nature, portraiture of people, artistic approaches etc etc..
I m totally devoted to my Photographic projects and dreams and I try my best to become better and better and quoting Plato Rivellis' motto: "If you think you ve reached the top and there is nothing else to depict within Photography's limits, then it's time to pack up your gear and start another hobby"...
I think it says all!
