A bit about the Photographer

Christiana Vasilas

Travel Photographer / Writer & Web Developer

Christiana V. Photography & Design is spearheaded by Christiana Vasilas.  A Greek-American, New York based, award-winning travel photographer.  Photography has always been a passion of hers, and in 2014 she held her first solo exhibition, and in 2019 formally founded and trademarked her company.  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 & Greek America Foundation).  

 

In 2022, the Art Collective - New York City Art Walk - selected 2 of Christiana's works highlighting her beloved Greece to be broadcasted for 2 days on the billboards of Times Square in August and again December, following the success of her work in the 2021 Long Island City/Astoria Showcase. 

 

Christiana V. Photography & Design was recently named 3x as a premier small business of the Mediterranean by The Mediterranean Lifestyle in 2022. Most recently, she was awarded the honor of being the featured artist for the Independence Day Celebrations at the Consulate General of Greece in New York, where her Evzone collection was on display.  Following the Consulate exhibition, Christiana was invited to accompany the Archdiocesan Cathedral Choir and Youth Choir on their whirlwind tour of Anatolia and Greece capturing their religious pilgrimage and concert, and was the guest of the Presidential Guard of the Hellenic Republic on Oxi Day in Athens, Greece. 

Come see the world through her lens! #christianavphotography
