Kridon Panteli's Photographic works are essentially subjective impressions of his own experiences, which develop by intuition. After starting work, his hands seem to take over and create their own essence of dynamics, producing the crisp, target-hitting images to which his customers have grown to expect. Colour, form and expression are the mainstays of his dramatic portfolio, which have attracted a wide audience in all parts of Europe and beyond.
Also an excelled airbrush illustrator and Graphic Designer, Kridon Panteli looks back at years of professional experience including work in Advertising and Publishing, customising in Europe's aircraft and transport industries.
For Kridon Panteli, teaching illustration and photography has been a labour of love for many years, handing down valuable professional experience to today's creative youth. He has taught multimedia at various schools and colleges around Europe. Lecturing for the renowned Letraset® company took him for to Germany and Switzerland, enabling him to pass on his skills (in German and English languages) to students from all over Europe.
Answering to what was one of his most satisfying and remarkable professional experiences as a freelance illustrator, he mentioned an adventurous trip on a luxurious passenger liner in the Indian ocean, teaching airbrush techniques to a far-reaching audience, an experience which triggered off his illustration and photography period devoted to sea travel, including depictions of the America's Cup winning vessels, which prompted the production of a brilliantly illustrated international yacht calendar.
Today, Kridon works on a variety of personal illustration and photographic projects. His ongoing photographic portrait project Artists, Artisans and Athletes a series of striking classic images, taken on medium format monochrome film, and hand printed on silver based fibre base paper to ensure quality and longevity.
In contrast to his classic portraits, Kridon's illustration background influences his love of architectural photography, using digital equipment, he constantly experiments to produce unusual and individual images, creating the extra ordinary out of the ordinary, colourful and pleasing to the eye.
