Since then I have attended several courses and workshops with photographers such as Alec Soth, Anders Petersen, JH Engstorm and Stratos Kalafatis. In 2015 I took part in two six weeks seminars of Depression Era for documentary photography (''New Documents? with Pavlos Fysakis and Pasqua Vorgia) and night photography (''Nightstalkers'' with Angela Svoronou and Yannis Hatziaslanis). Since fall 2016 I have regularly attended in various Athens School of Fine Arts courses about photography conducted every semester.

A part of my project Lucid Dream has been shown in Photobiennale Thessaloniki (2014) and has presented in the magazine WIP (issue 13) and in the Greek Foundation platform (2016).

In my world, analog film is still relevant to photography, though I sometime embrace the digital realm.
