I am George Vardakis, a dental surgeon as a profession and  photographer,  based in Heraklion, Crete, Greece.

Born in Thessaloniki in 1968 and now live and work in Heraklion, Crete.

Taking part in international photographic competitions have won major awards and numerous medals and several Honourable mentions and diplomas.

In 2013 published together with Nikiforakis Polychronis, photo album titled {3 days, 2 photographers, 1 event} themed by the MATALA FESTIVAL 2012.

In 2016 published together with my friend Charles Weber, photographer from Switzerland the book “Ethniki Odos”.

Member of the HPS (Greek Photographic Society),  H.Ph.S.C. (Hellenic Photographic Society of Crete), SILLE SANAT SARAYI, GPU (Global Photographic Union), FIAP and PSA (PHOTOGRAPHIC SOCIETY OF AMERICA).

I appreciate the people I meet, the places I go, the hours I keep, and the spontaneity in every shoot. I appreciate the raw reality of everyday life, the fleeting beauty of those in-between moments, and I do my very best to take every picture with that in mind.

I want my viewers to relate to my photographs through recognition of and familiarity with the situations, the emotions, and the energy so much that they wonder if they are looking at a picture of someone they know.
