About
The word photograph literally means “writing with light”. You could write a report about a moment, or, you can write a poem about the exact same moment. This exactly is John Makris’ viewpoint on photography. 
Born in 1989, John Makris is a Professional Wedding & Portrait Photographer and a Photography Educator based in Athens. He studied I.T. but his love for photography proved a greater influence for his later choices.  John’s great love for wedding photography led him to want to share all his knowledge and influence others too about the art of photography. 
His main objective, a wedding, the couple, family, man… He believes you cannot succeed in a good shot just because you are alert and quick, or because you are fully trained, or you have the latest gear or simply because you have great imagination. He believes it is the combination of all the above that makes a good shot plus realizing that since you are taking photographs of people, emotions are involved. He is positive that the most important ingredient in the success of a photographer is never ceasing to ‘feed’ his aesthetics through observation, study and making continuous progress.
Having shot many weddings in every nook and cranny of Greece and in many countries overseas, he has come to love wedding photography dearly. He believes it is an extraordinary way to narrate the most beautiful day of a couple’s life together, to contribute in recording the story and offering the couple and their relatives a kind of special heritage.
John Makris has been awarded with a number of photography awards in Greece and on a worldwide level. He has won the title of the World's Best Wedding Photographer of the Year, three years in a row (2017,2018,2019), according to Wedaward.com. He was in the 2nd Place in the world at 2020 WPE International Competition, and in the 3rd Place in the world in the 2020 WPI Competition. He has also won many awards in Competitions such as WPPI, SWPP, PWS, COSMOS AWARDS, ONEEYELAND, WEDISSON, and more. He is a Godox Ambassador in Greece, a Fundy Storyteller and he is also a Judge in some Worldwide Photography Competitions.
