Although I am Greek and I live only some 20 km away from the famous and wonderful Lavrion (Greece) for the last 30 years, I started visiting the dumps and mines quite recently, in 2013. I had a passion for minerals since my childhood and a small collection of Lavrion stones that was offered to me by a friend of my parents by 1980. However, since I didn't have the chance to explore the labyrinth of galleries as a teenager, my other passion for the sea and the animals led me to become a marine biologist rather than a geologist. My research during the last 20 years is dedicated to the study and conservation of whales and dolphins of the Greek Seas and the Mediterranean.

As I was already a professional underwater photographer, specializing in macrophotography, it was not difficult to fall in love with the new for me world of mineral photomicrography.

I use a CANON EOS 5D Mark II and a macro 105 mm for low magnifications. I add belows and a Carl ZEISS 25 mm for high magnifications. I started using CombineZP photo stacker in my first steps and shots, but I have now (March 2015) downloaded Helicon Focus, which seems very very promising after some tests and according to articles and comments from kind people who share their view in mindat.org.
