I grew up in London in the 1960s, the son of Greek Cypriot immigrants. As a freelancer I started photographing musicians at live venues for record companies, who would later give me work photographing album covers and publicity material. I was also shooting personal work and selling it to publishers of posters and fine art prints. In the 70s and 80s I travelled extensively in Europe and the USA, building an archive of travel and commercial images that I sold through various photo libraries, primarily Getty Images. I moved from London to Spain in the early 90s and continued working as a commercial photographer until very recently. I now work only on my personal projects for print and exhibition, dividing my time in Spain between Murcia and Madrid.
