Hello Photoion students and photography fans, it’s time for another Student of the Month interview.

Each month we select one of our students who have shown the best progress and we showcase some of their work. We also sit down with them to learn about their photography journey and where they are going with their craft next. The winner also gets a £50 voucher to be redeemed against any of our courses.

This month we sat down withAlkiviadis Tsitsigkos

I have been passionate about photography for years, but because of work, hobbies, and other life commitments, I never got around to properly getting into photography. It was always a camera on the mobile phone that would do the trick.

In 2015 I decided to do my first mountaineering trip after having been inspired by a movie. I had my reasons and I was determined to try the adventurous challenge on ascending Mont Blanc. This serious trip was also a reality check, as I would not accept climbing the French Alps and not taking amazing photos. I had to create amazing memories.
