John Lanasis is a Photographer Actor and Filmmaker, trained as a drama director at the BBC. His photographic work has sold in Harrods, Selfridges and Jasper Conran and has been published in a number of magazines and books. Greece Magazine called him 'The Monet of Photographers', though his strong attraction to contemporary subject matter and the search for 'patterns in the chaos' as he calls it, has led to a style change in recent years. His photographic inspiration is partly drawn from artists such as Andreas Gursky and Michael Wolf, but most compositions are viewed as a cinematographic frame and each scene as prospective film location while he imagines what type of scene the location would lend itself to. In that respect his inspiration is also drawn from filmmakers such as Bertrand Blier, Claude Berri, Francois Dupeyron and Bernardo Bertolucci amongst many others. John is currently in development as a producer with a remake of the 1977 BBC Television Drama Series 'Who Pays the Ferryman' He is based on the Greek island of Corfu.
Public schooling in Athens, Greece followed by four years in creative arts and photography, MA in Creative Advertising and Marketing.
