My photographic journey starts a bit differently than usual, by not "owing a camera since I was young" but by a hobby I used to have since I was little. The curiosity of observation. I always loved to observe people, their surroundings and fill my eyes with pictures and colors. And this simply because a thousand words, emotions, smells as well as music can fit into a photograph. 
 
The biggest part of my cinematic style was formed by my love for cinema and music. Believe it or not, photographs have music within them. Looking at a photograph evokes an emotion is the same way as listening to a song and these can be combined into one: a photograph that brings to mind a melody. 
 
Things I like: cinema, music and food from all around the world, animals, tea and warm smiles. I speak English and Spanish.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I am located in Athens, Greece. I charge a travel fee when outside Athens or abroad.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I have been photographing weddings for 7 years now and I have shot more than 120 weddings as well as an equal of 120 christenings.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

My style is a mix of 90% photojournalism in order to capture the moments in a very natural way that would later become the precious memories of the couple as well as some 10% guided photos during their portraits in order to make pictures of high aesthetic but with a natural feeling at the same time.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

The most typical wedding package I offer includes a pre-wedding shooting, the preparations of the couple, ceremony, portraits of the couple as well as family and group photos and of course the wedding party.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I have a showroom, where I meet with couples to discuss about their weddings and showcase my work. If they live abroad we can always use skype.

We are happy that we found Manos to do a couple photo shoot for our anniversary trip to Greece. He was extremely easy to communicate with throughout the process and he is a meticulous photographer that even carefully gave us consultation on the clothes for the photo shoot to make us well prepared. The photo session was delightful, and everything was made easy and smooth by his cheerful, warm personality and professionalism. He knows exactly the good spots for pictures and the results proved to be excellent. The quality is high and the quantity of pictures he delivered also came as a pleasant Read More surprise. The pictures have a very natural touch, and they truly capture moments that are ordinary but meanwhile exquisite. Some pictures are like snapshots of a real film. There is also a good balance of close shots focused on the projection of stillness, emotions, and personality and those from some distance that nicely display the flows of movements. You can put faith in Manos if you want natural but meaningful photos that show the beautiful rhythm of everyday life.

Manos was the best wedding photographer we could find. He's very professional and focused on his work. You can see the passion and that he truly loves what he is doing. We had a great fun during the photo session, felt very comfortable and could be ourselves, which resulted in a wonderful effect on the photos. Manos guided us, but all was very natural. The photos we received left us speechless - now it's hard to choose which one we love the most and which we should hang on the wall. Manos captured the most romantic and touching moment, caught all the best of the most important day of our Read More lives. If we had to choose one more time, we would definitely decide to work with Manos once again.

As a wedding present our brother gifted us a photography session during our honeymoon. That’s how we met Manos and we are so happy how he was able to capture our time together in Athens. He helped us feel comfortable and documented the day so perfectly. He was great to work with and I never felt nervous or posed, so our photos were the essence of us! We like that his style is natural and tells a story. I will cherish these memories from our honeymoon and would recommend Manos to anyone looking for a photographer while in Greece!
