About organizerMy name is Nikos Kokkas. I was born in south-western Germany, near Stuttgart in 1972. I grew up in Thessaloniki but my family immigrated to Germany for a second time when I was 15 years old. That functioned in a way as a “new beginning” in my life and that was the point where I started expressing a growing interest in travel and photography simultaneously. I bought my first SLR camera, a Minolta X-700 by the age of 16 and started discovering the endless aspects of light, in colour and B&W. Carrying a camera on a daily basis, it started being obvious how my life would proceed. Self-taught and having already traveled a lot in Europe, “camera in hand”, I returned to Greece in 1995, to Athens, with only one aim: to start working as a freelance journalist and photographer.
Speaking three foreign languages, English, German and a little French, I started producing and publishing my own subjects. My topics which drew inspiration from Greece and other parts of the world ranged from architecture and interior design to travel and social issues. So far I produced and published over 60 travel and social issues from Greece, Spain, France, Switzerland, Italy, Sweden, Germany, U.S.A., Israel, Panama, Zambia, England, Ireland, Oman. I am a member of the Greek edition of National Geographic Magazine, having produced 6 subjects from different places in Greece with a certain point of view. A few years ago, I developed an interest in portraiture making it a very important part of my work until today. I collaborated with numerous major Greek magazines and newspapers.
I live in Athens.
