Spiros Politis



Whether shooting chimps in L.A, blowing up headphones and vinyl records in the studio, directing cheeky tiger cubs in luxurious condos or unruly Beastie Boys on the streets of Lisbon – I have always relished a challenge in my photography.

I have been called a problem solver – and since the age of 8 when I blew up the German battleship Bismarck on the local lake (well- a model of Bismarck) I have been on a great journey of discovery with photography.

I have met and shot countless incredibly talented people who’ve shared a bit of themselves in return for looking good, and I’ve worked for wonderful brands, bands and companies from across the globe.

I love taking the grain of an idea and bringing it to fruition.

Every day I wake up looking for that next part of the journey.

Wanna join me?
