On a personal note

Sophocles has been at Pictorials since 1994 and has become very well known for his style of portraiture and wedding photography. He is primarily a photographer of people. This is what he enjoys and does best and the string of awards he has been presented with over the last four years is proof of his passion for photography.

"...Alexiou is no ordinary high-street snapper."
