Charoula Stamatiadou is 27 years old who was born in Drama, a small town in Greece,
but is currently living in Athens where she moved in 2009 to pursue her dream and get
experienced with a bigger audience.
"Photography is a way to free my mind. I started shooting because I needed a way to explore myself and redefine my thoughts. I tended to imagine black scenes of mystery with creatures hiding on shades. Photography was the way to express all that I had into my soul. I started shooting in 2007 just to banish my depression, then became a reason to meet a new person I had inside of me. It was the first time I believed on my abilities; I was feeling that I found a spell to heal my pessimism. As I was trying to reach my dream, I was experimenting on different styles of photography and also added color on my pictures. Since then I am trying to study new things and improve my work day by day. My recent inspirations comes from pure beauty, romance, retro scenes and light."
"I usually cooperate with independent fashion designers and upcoming hairstylists / make up artists. I love meeting new people and share our vision, I think it's the best way to grow up as an artist. I love shooting with others and make them feel unique and beautiful. I feel completed when I manage to make my work remarkable to different people and you may spot different themes or concepts which have nothing to do with previous work of mine - that's me!"
