The adventurous spirit of Alexandros Grymanis has led him to photograph action all over the world for global sports brands – the ambition of the athletes he shoots matched closely by his own. "You need to push yourself in my job, and not just be good but be yourself with your camera," says Alex, who has been travelling the world since 2009. "You'll never get bored. You'll get out there and have the freedom to do whatever you want."
The Canon Ambassador grew up in Peristeri, in the western part of Athens, Greece. His parents owned a sports shop where he spent time as a youngster, which gave him a sense of curiosity around athleticism. "As a child, I played football, did karate and skateboarding," he says. "Then I started snowboarding, surfing and climbing, which I still do now. I still enjoy the liberation that the extreme sports mindset can bring to my life."
