Necessity inspires expression as much as it mothers invention. While living on an enchanting Greek island, Arielle Kristina was often surprised at how few well-crafted photographs were available of the stunning landscape and unique architecture. The realization that Crete was suffering from the outdated photographs in its tourism literature was brought to light when Arielle Kristina attempted to create an informative travel website. Most of the available photos were of a low quality that was not appropriate for modern web design. In an effort to incorporate quality and compelling photos in her website designs, Arielle Kristina began to photograph the nature and history around her.
Arielle Kristina's initial professional work was so well accepted by the community and the internet viewers that she began to pursue photography as both a practical and an artistic medium. Several years later, Arielle Kristina has built a large portfolio of artistic and dramatic photography from around the world. Some of her photos have been featured by National Geographic and Outdoor Photographer.
Thank you for allowing me to share my love of photography with you. My true inspiration to develop a photography portfolio stemmed from my attempt to create quality design work for travel companies in Greece. As I searched through the available stock images, I began to see what a need Crete possessed for beautiful photos to promote this popular tourist location. The picturesque landscape and unique architecture of Crete effortlessly provided countless photos that seemlessly integrated into my design work.
From these humble origins, I began to travel and photograph popular and remote travel locations. I always sought for a unique angle or dramatic element to distinguish my photos from the predecessors. Years later, I am still photographing the beauty that I see in the world around me.
Some of my photos have been featured in world-renowned publications including National Geographic and Outdoor Photographer. Furthermore, I have been honored to be named one of flickr's top photographers for Mallorca, Spain and Crete, Greece.
I am starting a new enterprise that provides not only stock photos for design use, but also supplies fine prints and photo books of my most esteemed work. Please visit my Events page for information on galas and promotional events in which I will participating.
Thank you for helping me to share my passion for quality and artistic photos with the world!
