Niki Riga

Niki is one of the most known chess photographers in the World and she's based in Greece.

She says that portrait photography is her favourite, because: I really enjoy looking out for that special look, that extraordinary moment, that fleeting feeling - this is why I love working at chess events.

She has worked as a freelancer or official photograpger in several major chess events, including the 2018 World Championship match in London and the 2019 World Chess Grand Prix series.

Recently Niki has expanded into other fields as well, most notably being appointed as official concert photographer of the famed Greek artist, Yannis Charoulis. She has also dabbled in theater and social event photography, as well as making campaign work.

She is also an International Chess Arbiter. You can follow her work on Instagram.
