Ladolea (https://www.ladolea.gr/) has been my first client to whom I did food styling and food photography work. Melissi&Co is a Greek company launched by two young professionals, Panos and Thanos Kloutsiniotis. Passionate about the premium olive oil produced in the ancient region of Corinthia, they were inspired by a single vision: to create truly authentic Greek products. Driven by a profound respect for Greek heritage the company’s founders consider it an essential component of their work to collaborate with individuals who honour and share their respect for the rural and cultural traditions of the country. Thus, our collaboration begun and on a monthly basis I have been taking pictures with their products while cooking, in recipes and setting up concepts to photograph. This collaboration was the reason I actually started working more on my food photography, food styling, making my own backdrops and developing my own personal style.
