Hello, my name is Stavros Sakellaris (my friends call me Stav) and I'm a freelance photographer based in Melbourne providing a variety of commercial and corporate services. Excuse the self portrait above, I'm not a good model.
I've been using an SLR camera for over 30 years and there's nothing I like more than a new challenge in photography. I love telling a story through photography and sometimes turning the images into moving pictures to create movies. Take a look at my videography page to see what I mean.
At the age of 13, my brother handed me an SLR camera and asked me to take photos at our sister's 18th birthday. I did a crash course using the instruction manual that came with the camera and flash (there was no internet in those days). I worked out my settings and distances and luckily enough the photos worked out so well, that I became the extended family photographer. I studied photography in the days when we developed film in the darkroom but thankfully (although unromantically), we now post process on computers. In 2003 I started my own business working as a commercial photographer based in Collingwood, Melbourne. My portfolios include fashion, corporate, architecture, events and portraiture.
I haven't won any awards because I haven't entered any, but I hope this website can showcase my work and have you be the judge. Most boxes on here are not individual selects of my favourite images but projects. Click a photography category that corresponds with your line of requirements and feel free to browse.
I am still learning the art of photography till this day and I enjoy creating images as much as I did the first day I was handed a camera. I look forward to a new challenge every day so call me to discuss your project.
