We talk to Antonis Engrafou, a portrait and commercial photographer based in Limassol, Cyprus. His aesthetic of work is influenced by the old masters of art and this is his approach to his entire body of work – commercial and portraiture. His storytelling approach shows emotions, character and stories through the people he photographs: “When I take a picture I want the viewer to feel a connection with the person I’m photographing and transfer the feelings and emotions to them”. His storytelling technique creates unique lighting and colour in the photoshoot to achieve the desired outcome, “a fine art approach to subjects”.
In the past few years, he has worked for numerous projects, both for clients and personal. His work has been seen in magazines, billboards and books. He has been featured in numerous blogs, awarded in prestigious competitions and Antonis was voted by Luerzer’s Archive in 2011 as one of the 200 best Ad Photographers and in 2018 was the Grand prize winner in the Productions Paradise Spotlight Awards.
