Born in Larnaca-Cyprus, Maria first picked up a camera at the early age of ten while on school trips. Since then, film was her best friend. Later on, in life – influenced by self-portraiture and fashion photography, Maria went on to study the subject in order to gain academic and practical skills. That’s when she flew to London to find herself living there for eight years before returning to her country for a better life and a more challenging career.

Growing up with the rise of social media and digital techniques, Maria has worked and collaborated with various influencers as well as brands. Her portfolio is available on this website for you to discover. Her professional photographic experiences took her to different countries such as Morocco, The Netherlands and not only.

Maria finds inspiration in researching, listening to music and reading books. For her, a project/brief it is yet another story and not just another task to do.
