From an early age had a restless artistic spirit and loved to take pictures. But his passion for photography began in 2000 when he attended photography courses at Adult Education Centres of the Ministry of Education and Culture. So begins the challenge for the art of photography. In 2001 became a member of the group photo CYTA-TEY and then the Cyprus Photographic Society. He was also a member of the Photographic Club Lakatamia and Strovolos Photography Club by attending lectures and artistic photography by taking part in various activities and exhibitions. He is also a member of the International Federation of Art Photography FIAP (Federation Internationale de l'Art Photographique) and in 2010 acquired the title of artist photographer AFIAP. Polis is characteristic of the will, to learn as much as possible about the art of photography. The art that fascinated him since he expresses perfectly. It is truly remarkable in itself a clear and his effort to reach these levels. The effort continues taking part in conferences, courses and seminars organized from time to time by various organized groups. Parallel read and informed about the art of photography through various means. The reward for the effort to photograph Polly with the passion that moves and impresses comes as a natural consequence of both the original effort and love for the art of photography. Participates successfully in several international and local photo contests. Many of his photographs have won awards in several local competitions and posted in group exhibitions and several have posted a distinguished and international lounges. In 2006 he was given the opportunity to present for the first time a small sample of the photographic work of participating with two other artists, photographers, who excelled in the competition "Photographer of the Year 2005", the photo exhibition organized by the Cyprus Photographic Society. Photos were also used to issue the guidebook issued by the Directory Services Cyta as well as a collector's calling cards. At the beginning of his artistic career of the first photographs were taken with an Olympus SLR that belonged to his brother. Then he bought his first semi-professional camera Canon EOS 30 and in 2006 acquired a digital camera. As he says in the course of evolution as an artist photographer important role played by the "teachers" who's helped him through his knowledge and experience to cultivate and develop his talent. Some of them are Pericles, Socrates, Takis Dimitriadis and Mr Paphitis why Stelios and thanked him initiation into the art. According to him the photo is the only thing that stops time. The photo to relax helps him forget, travelling to the magical places, full of colours. Through the photographic lens sees things that may not see some other people. He believes that photography is a way to give each artist his mental world. He photographed various subjects enough as a matter of saying to irritate the eye and touches the soul. With camera in hand feel free to express itself through the images that move and manage to express it. The aim of everything is to travel through his photographs, while trying to pass messages to those who see them. Positive messages, colourful, love and hope, transmitting optimism for life. But someone observing the human figure through the photos of feelings other than joy, hope and love can distinguish feelings of sadness, anger and pain. The lens is for communication through much of his own sensitivity that is beautiful and true in our world today. On this website you can see my work where several my photos are hosted in this area.
