Perhaps the most important thing we will all do on our photographic journeys is finding and defining our own unique visual style. If you want to be a better photographer, it’s a journey you too must take. The visual style is what separates each of us from other photographers. It’s how we choose to look at the world and present it in our photos.
My visual style is definitely creative and fantasy-like. You always need to think outside the box, from a new perspective. Don’t focus on the main subject. Look around it as a frame. I experiment with a variety of media, always trying out new ideas and techniques and combine digital aspects with several types of photography and digital art. My work primarily focuses on fantasy themes such as Greek mythology and creative fashion editorial ideas. I enjoy working with photography and combining my digital art with this. I have always been interested in art and photography. I was first inclined to follow it as a career while browsing through my oldest brother, Constantinos Kalfuntzos portfolio – he was studying fine art and photography at the time.
When Urban Meets RuralEvery destination requires a different dress code. The particular shoot is an Urban breeze vs. Greek Goddess theme.
Inspired by the Greek Goddess Artemis. ‘The Olympian goddess of the hunt, the moon, and chastity; in time, she also became associated with childbirth and nature. No more than few days old, she helped her mother Leto give birth to her twin brother Apollo. Artemis was very protective of her and her priestesses’ innocence. Consequently, she wasn’t very nice when some of them weren’t so careful. Even though Plato says that the name “Artemis” is related to her virginity and the Ancient Greek word for “unharmed” or “pure,” we now know that its origin is undoubtedly different and possibly even Persian’.

WHERE THE ART MEETS THE NATURE seems like an appropriate title both for this editorial and the direction spring/summer trends are taking us in.
In her own words, Claudia says: ‘’Modeling is something I always wanted to do. When I’m in front of the camera I feel free I feel like I can be anybody I want. Everything is about being creative bringing the imagination from your mind to the picture. You became an artist. Once the photo shoot is done I feel like I added another story to my life. Every shoot is a unique experience that takes you somewhere else away from the basic routine.’’
