Cyprus: Antonis Engrafou

Antonis Engrafou is 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 color in the photo shoot 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.
