Sand Dunes: born of the storm

Against stretching sands and skies thick with clouds, and photographed from upward angles that visually exaggerate, Akiss Paraskevopoulos‘ models look like Titan deities. The simple styling only serves to add to the Homeric drama of the photos, with lightweight pieces that catch the wind but never detract from the two models – Adhiel Tulba and Rhianna Porter – as the main focus.

A sexualised interpretation of the season

Ahead of Louis Vuitton putting officer’s caps and leathers on the runway of their fall 2011 collection, Akiss Paraskevopoulos had already been playing with Night Porter themes. Now the leather cap emerges from the wardrobe once more, this time reinterpreted in colour with a fetishist-meets-biker feel sitting alongside a number of the year’s other motifs. As such, you’ll find this is a photo shoot that…

Luiza Zimmer poses

Akiss Paraskevopoulos is well versed in a range of different photographic styles. He can excel in the dreamy and light-filled as equally as in the real and unprocessed. But the other thing we always look forward to in Akiss’ work is his ability to bring out a fierceness, a raw sensuality, in any subject.

Memory of a dream

Akiss Paraskevopoulos is expert at creating a dream-like quality in his photos; like the foggy mist that shrouds the memory of a dream as it fades away, but whose cloudy trail you cling to so as to not entirely forget. It’s in sunlight filtering through clouds, in the distant colouring of the images. Here Akiss shoots the beautifully pixie cropped Meagan Hughes for yet another…

Bouma’s beauty

Akiss Paraskevopoulos has a particular style that straddles the space between natural innocence and sensual beauty. He has a knack for capturing mood over detail, making his portraits – like this one of Annely Bouma – particularly beautiful in spite of (or perhaps even because of?) the minimal makeup and styling.

A very fashionable force

Update: We’ve fixed up the broken photo that was included within the pictorial. You can now see the full pictorial at the bottom of this article. We’ve seen fashion mix with sport of late, but this shoot of boxing in bikinis by Akiss Paraskevopoulos really does take the amalgamation to a different place. With (presumably) simulated punches and models collapsing against the boxing ring, the…

A valiant adventure

Fabio Novas and Giorgos Nikolaides are styled with a purposefully rugged bent by Christos Michailides in the February 2011 edition of Men’s Health Greece, however possibly even more noticeable is the audacious nature of the shoot. Photographed in motion by Akiss Paraskevopoulos must have taken some skill as the models weave and jump between stairwells in a seaside setting. This is one shoot that does…

Heavenly corsets

Given the sumptuous detailing they offer up, it’s hard to imagine Theia’s corsets being worn as anything but outerwear? Captured by Fashionising.com’s contributing photographer Akiss Paraskevopoulos and modelled by Elena, this latest photo shoot gives an old fashioned feel to an old fashioned garment that sits somewhere between vintage photography and a voyeuristic study.

Saulyna: Beauty sans Photoshop

Several times a year it’s an issue that raises its head, thus, of late, we’ve turned our focus to the role of Photoshop in fashion. Fashionising.com’s personal take is that Photoshop is akin to make-up: a necessary part of the process, but one that can easily be abused. By way of comments and correspondence many of you agreed – regular contributor Akiss Paraskevopoulos, however, took…
