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 couldn't of asked for a better photographer. Manos captured everything so perfectly. He was extremely helpful, and responded to all messages promptly even when communicating between Greece and the U.S. We are so grateful we found him. Thank you Manos for capturing our special day.

Working with Manos was a breeze, and a ton of fun! He did a great job capturing photos leading up to the event and it was easy to work with him. He took great care in setting up and capturing some of those special moments (first looks, bridal party preparations, family photos, etc). He really has a passion and a knack for capturing amazing, joyous, spontaneous moments all throughout the celebration and party! We, our bridal party, and all of our guests can't wait to relive the memories from that day. Thank you Mano for your hard work and dedication!

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.
