Actually, I think he is using film. He mentions it several times in this interview: http://www.platonphoto.com/interview/cnn.html .
I think that people with a British accent truly have that down-to-earth talk. They kind of sound intelligent, like somebody you can trust.
That's what I said...? He was using film of some sort. There's too much grain in that guy's portrait. It wasn't like it would have been extremely dark if he was in a studio setting.
I think he's a greek ex-pat, and that's just his name. Or do you mean pretty much dropping the surname?
Yeah, dropping the surname to sound all artsy.
But you know what? I like his work. It's hard to get good people photos. It all comes out wrong. I've seen wedding photographers work and they try their hardest to make the people laugh. They crack jokes left and right to make them feel comfortable. It's hard for someone like me who's usually silent to crack jokes. I'm just not that type of person. It's the fact that he pulled off the photos while making the photos look natural. That's awesome.
