Reprising a role as a naked Goddess: Taryn Andreatta

The right photographer, the right model, and the ways to create beautiful art out of nudity are endless. No clothes or accessories are needed when Akiss Paraskevopoulos and Taryn Andreatta pool their creative talents; and in a shoot all about pure natural beauty, anything else would only take away from the final product. In the absense of clothing or props or urban backdrops, Taryn’s presence…

A naked Goddess and dramatic clouds: this shoot has both

How something can be simultaneously so peaceful and so dramatic is a work of alchemy only Akiss Paraskevopoulos could understand. Engineering exactly that contradictory mix in his latest photoshoot starring Taryn Andreatta, Paraskevopoulos’ lens sees his undressed muse as a Grecian Goddess belong to the past, present and future; one who stands tall against the drama of the skies and relishes in the hushed, peaceful…

Weekend beauty: Ksenia Pavskaia

With long hair and even longer limbs, model Ksenia Pavskaia has that glamazonian appeal. In this series of photos, photographer Akiss Paraskevopoulos lets her natural beauty shine – with simple backdrops, simple styling, and raw shots that keep Pavskaia’s razor-sharp bone structure and enviable hair the focus of each frame.

In the blue mountains

For many a photographer, travel isn’t just about hitting the tourist destinations. It’s about seeing every new landscape as an opportunity. On a recent trip to the other side of his world, Akiss Paraskevopoulos saw Australia’s Blue Mountains – so named for the blue haze that seems to linger over them when viewed from a distance – as one of those such opportunities. With fierce…

Girl as boy, girl as girl

Some common threads of themes can be revisited and reinvented time and again: if done right, we’ll always be drawn to take notice. Here’s one you know: girl as boy seduces girl as girl. It’s the intrigue of a Sapphic theme magnified by the alluring confusion of androgyny. Akiss Paraskevopoulos‘ new take on the timeless plot forgoes the lingerie and lace stockings that are often…

Light in the darkness

Akiss Paraskevopoulos‘ recent video Petites Gouttes De Soleil was all about the mood. It flickered with the obscurity of another era; the clothing more a contribution to the mood than the cause of it. In the final photoshoot, however, the styling no longer frolics at the edge of the greater picture. Instead it’s beautifully captured both in detail and as part of the Gothic setting.…

A little drop of sun: weekend watch

In its flickery black and white, Akiss Paraskevopoulos‘ latest video could have come straight off some old film reel. That would be, of course, were it not for the styling by Martha Dimaki that gives an edgy, modern take on Gothic Victoriana. Akiss gives us a voyeurs view of the subject, creeping up across a deserted cemetery, or capturing the model through ornate wrought iron…

Behind the lens

Photography works in the most magical ways. It all lies in the power of the click that lasts no more than a few microseconds, but it’s a real deal breaker. From the contouring light on the face to the delusional sparkle on a dress, the lens is powerful enough to do anything. Or make anything look like what it’s not. Photographer Akiss Paraskevopoulos looks at…

Lost world down under

Akiss Paraskevopoulos didn’t waste any opportunities on a recent trip to Australia. The craggy rockfaces and outback sandy plains became the perfect backdrops for photoshoots like this one, titled Lost World. And a lost world it could be. Only the clothing betrays the fact that this isn’t some ancient setting roamed by prehistoric man. But there’s a subtle tribal feel to the clothes none the…

Weekend watch: playground love

If you fancy getting swept away in a dreamy relaxed mood, the kind of mood that only rustling long grasses, wildflowers, and soft, rustic cotton and lace dresses can create, then here’s a video to indulge in. Directed by Akiss Paraskevopoulos, who applies the soft, sensual style of his photography to this vintage-effect clip, it’s perfectly set to the jazzy yet mildly melancholic tones of…
