1. What is the place you love most to visit and when do you go?
I would not say there is a place because it fascinates every new place I visit. However, I always like exploring the islands of the Cyclades that marry the endless blue of the Aegean Sea.
2. What is your favorite habit?
I like to go to places I do not know and photograph.
3. What do you love most about your work?
In my job, I like discovering new places that I know of new people, facing new challenges in every project, and I will always find a new reason at a time.
4. Recently visited Santorini, why did you visit it? Tell us two words about your trip.
Santorini or Thira located in the southern Aegean Sea is an island known for its volcanic activity. I think it's one of the top destinations so I had the opportunity to travel there like that in April for three days. I wanted to see the black beaches and the photographed Oia.
5. What makes Santorini so special?
There are unique places on the island that one can believe is not on this planet. It combines incredibly white and blue and will always have landscapes that enchant you and unload you.
6. We are only for 48 hours in Santorini, what should we definitely see or do?
The island is not very large and has many places to visit worth to go and feel their energy. On the basis of the map, I first visited the northern part of the island and then the south. I was in Messaria in the middle, so I first started from the beautiful Fira, the capital of Thira., The view from there is enchanting, it has pedestrian streets with many shops and 587 stone-paved steps for the accuracy leading to Gialos (Fira Hydra), where donkeys will be the trademark of Santorini. I continued with Imerovigli, which is incredibly charming and quieter than other places. There is also a beautiful route that you can walk along the island several kilometers and get to Oia. Then I headed for Oia and went to where is the caldera where it is a cavity formed as a large balcony, usually at the highest point of the site suitable for admiring the view. The bend from Ammoudi just below gives you the advantage of having a panoramic view of Oia. The next day I visited the traditional settlements of the island that are Pyrgos, Emborios and Megalohori, where you will see architecture, colors, and culture. I loved being lost in the close-ups of photography like a labyrinth.
7. Stands for the particular peculiarity of its territory, which landscapes and places made you a special impression?
What seemed to me very interesting is the geological and morphological part of the island. I was impressed by the stones, textures and the different colors that gave birth to the ground. The contrast of the dark rocks inspired me for photographs in the minimalist view of the frame. As I mentioned earlier, I wanted to visit some of the special beaches of Santorini so I go to Red Beach and Kamari. A unique spectacle that undoubtedly fascinates you.
7. A trip you would like to do, next destination that you would like to go to;
I look forward to the next destination because whatever it is will be something new. I would like to visit the continent of Asia at some time on a great record trip.
