E-light was born in a small café in East London.
After hours of brainstorming and research on advertising photography, it came to our attention that a large number of companies are still in need of top visual representation to better connect with their customers and stand out among their competitors.
The name arose naturally after our commitment to shed light on your brand, online and offline.
Inspired by digital artists and photographers at a young age, I enrolled in the Leica Academy in Athens in 2010, where I got my Diploma in Creative Photography by Global Leica Akademie Greece. In 2014 I moved to the Uk, where I studied Photography at the University of Plymouth and I worked closely with top tier photographers in order to understand more about the technical aspect of photography. After receiving the Bachelor Degree I immediately started my freelance career in the Uk and abroad.
In 2019 I volunteered as a photographer while traveling in Asia for a period of three months and that helped me to discover my passion into street and travel photography and opened my eyes to new creative horizons.

I began my career in portraiture and fashion photography in 2010. In 2012 I moved to London and in 2013 I spent few months in Indonesia working as a photographer in a fashion house. It’s in this Asian land where I discovered a strong passion for travel photography. Back in Europe, I travelled all around Europe for personal and commissioned work.
In 2018 I moved back to London, where I worked with creative agencies and model agencies. In 2019 I travelled for 3 months in Asia, starting from India and then Vietnam, Thailand and Myanmar for projects on portraiture and travel photography. Over the years I have understood that portrait photography is my tool for understanding the soul and the inner beauty of the people I have the pleasure to meet.
