“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” – Ansel Adams

Biography

Canadian born photographer Christalla Kyriacou studied at both Ryerson Polytechnic in Toronto and The University of Arts in Camberwell London gaining her BAA and MVA respectively before moving to Cyprus .

Working alongside an interiors photographer gave Christalla further studio experience and before long she was becoming immersed in her own projects staying true to her desire to explore all genres of photography from portrait to landscape to abstract art pieces, all the time learning more about colour, about light and about the stories behind the subject.

 With her natural sense of style and cosmopolitan attitude to life, it was no surprise that she was soon noticed by the capitals leading fashion editors and commissioned to shoot fashion editorials for such glossy titles as Madame Figaro and Harpers Bazaar.

 In recent years Christalla’s camera has rarely been idle. Whether shooting for commercial assignments, teaching at the European University of Cyprus or working on personal projects, she continues to explore all avenues of her art and has contributed to several exhibitions. She also uses her talents to help charitable causes such as The Argos Animal Sanctuary. Christalla now not only shares her in-depth technical knowledge of her art but her boundless enthusiasm too with the students at her co-runed yearly photo workshops.
