Vasilis is a great example of thriving in an industry independently, with the right tools by his side. Read on to find out what he thinks is most important when it comes to dealing with clients.
Thank you so much for agreeing to talk with us! Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and your work?
My name is Vasilis Barachanos, and I’m a photographer and cinematographer based in Greece. I have worked on various projects. with brands like LV, Dior, Bagatelle Group, Vice, Eastpak, and Bacardi.
How do you find Greece in terms of solo work / digital nomadism regulations?
It’s been 2 years since a huge development that has got many individuals into solo working, the government is working on some developments to create an ideal place to work as a solo & digital worker! Still needs a lot of work with the taxation systems but I think Greece is a nice place to work as a solo worker.
How and why did you start doing solo work?
I started working solo because of the freedom of working the way I want and expressing myself through my own work. Of course, it takes time to develop a discipline in working hours, and a lot of times it takes more time working solo compared to being in an in-house company. The challenges you have and the missions you can accomplish are just as rewarding as working for a top-tier business.
How did you come across Ruul and how long have you been using our features?
I have been looking for an online invoice service, and Ruul was the most simple and easier among almost every other option. I had no issues setting up clients' details, and received impressive support when I had any questions regarding the invoicing process. It still has many features to discover and use.
