A bit about the Photographer

Christiana Vasilas

Travel Photographer / Writer & Web Developer

Award-winning, Greek American, New York City-based travel photographer, Christiana Vasilas, has been honing her skills in photography for nearly two decades; studying under master photographers at NYU, National Geographic, Nikon USA, and Olympus USA schools of photography. Having traveled extensively throughout the United States and Europe, forever with a camera in hand, she takes the road less traveled to discover the true essence of the destination. Her use of sharp contrast and shading help to illustrate the moment in time that she has chosen to capture. 

 

Christiana’s fine art collections can be seen in public and private collections across the United States and Europe. Visit Portugal, Portugal’s official tourism board, recently recognized Christiana as one of the top 5 photographers in the world to have expertly portrayed the beauty and history of their country through photography. Her trademarked prints have been shared by over 30 organizations in the USA & abroad ranging from 5-star hotels (Corinthia Hotel London), restaurants (Il Posto Rino), DMCs (Downtown Alliance), Blogs, Shops (Thiki Greece), Press Outlets (Hedges Hamptons), Vineyards (MacLaren Wines), Charity Organizations (The Hellenic Initiative), and Art Collectives (New York City Art Walk) to name a few.  Christiana V. Photography & Design was recently named as a premier small business of the Mediterranean by The Mediterranean Lifestyle!

Selected as one of the top five out of 2,000 photographers for photographing a Portuguese UNESCO world heritage site and sharing a personal connection to the site.
