Yianni Aspradakis is a photographer I worked with in a previous job. He is one of the warmest and most unassuming men you’ll ever meet, and I made especially sure to stay in touch with him because he is Just. That. Good.
People often talk to me about how they feel certain photographers charge too much while others do not… and in some cases they have a point. There is no such question with Yianni, however. His speed, his process, his professionalism and his results are such that I will happily pay whatever he asks.
Today, aside from being an event co-ordinator and relationship facilitator, I am Yianni’s assistant. The person we are photographing is very important in entertainment circles and is notoriously difficult to get a hold of (we’ve literally got ten minutes with him)… but I was honestly more excited just to be able to watch Yianni work.
