Interview: Photographer Peter Papapetros (Greece)

Can you tell us a little about you?

First of all I would like to thank you for giving me the chance for an interview and for publishing some shots by me. Well, I am 50 years old. I work as a free lancer cameraman for the National TV Channel ERT and also as a photographer for photoshoot, wedding, concerts and other.

How and when did you get into photography?

Well from about 15 years old I was taking pics with film cameras. Then a friend of mine bought a dslr camera with film and I liked the way that she was taking pics and I decided to buy a cheap camera to start practicing to a new way of taking photos.

What does photography mean to you?

Photography is a way to express your ideas, thoughts, feelings and other things. In a photo you add your imagination, fantasy, love and of course your technical way to create a stunning image.

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

My style of photography is mostly boudoir, nude and portraits. Lately I must say that I became a wedding photographer because I like so much talking wedding photos.

Where do you get inspiration from?

Mmm… From photographers that I like. For example, a photographer called Nigel Holmes because he is really good for boudoir and nude photography which I like very much. Another example is Jake Hicks. He inspires me very much because he is so amazing of using the gels and creating all these stunning images.

Do you think in advance what you want in the picture?

This depends on the concept, for example if I am going to take a portrait, I have to know the lighting which is VERY important to create a perfect shot. The look also is very important because you must catch the right moment to click! So according to the concept I create the pic in my mind and then I click.

Studio, on location or both?

Both but sometimes studio is better but again it depends on the concept.

Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

Good question. I am not going to lie to you. I am a paid professional but sometimes I do some tfp photoshoots as most photographers do.

What has been your most memorable session and why?

There was a film noir concept and a make-up artist asked me to do the photoshoot. Well, we were about 12 people. It was amazing experience and the result was great.

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

Nikon, 70-200 2.8 and 50 mm 1.8

What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?

You have to love this! If you don’t love it enough you will not go further. You need to watch often other photographers, taking pics as often you can and be in touch always.

What do you think of our new magazine?

Well, I saw some of them and looks really nice.
