Spyros Catramis (Greece)

I am a greek semi-professional photographer and a Law Professor based in Athens. I studied photography at “Atelier Nicéphore”, in Grenoble, France. In 2010, I attended a Masterclass workshop with “Magnum” photographer Patrick Zachmann. I was shortlisted at the “Sony World  Photography Awards 2010” and won the second prize at the “National Geographic International Contest – Greece 2008”. My photographs have been exhibited at the “Arles Photography Festival”, Dubai, New York and Japan. I have cooperated with “National Geographic” magazine-Greek edition and the greek magazine “Dance”. My work has been published in many magazines, in the “COOPH” website and in the leading greek magazine “PHOTOgraphos” (PHOTOgrapher). I’m a contributor photographer of “Getty Images”, “EyeEm” and member of “Lensculture” Community. Photography is all about imagination, excitement, inspiration, passion and personal interpretation of reality. I like to observe and point out the detail. I try to discover the invisible. When I feel moved, I just press the shutter button. But it isn’t me “taking” the photo; it’s rather the photo that is offered to me. You can see more photos at:

For many years I was shooting with M Leicas. I bought my Fujifilm X100S camera in 2013. In the beginning it was just another new camera. But little by little, the more I used it the more I liked it. It became my companion, my eye, my imagination. Every time I pick it up I know I can trust it.

I just like street photography and the X100S is just perfect in my hands for street photography. Although it’s undeniable that interchangeable lens cameras are more versatile, this camera gives me the inspiration to experiment and helps me to explore my vision. I realized that to use only one lens is not a limitation, but rather an advantage. In this way I can focus in creativity rather than changing lenses. Nevertheless, I also use my trusty X-T1.
