Manolis Spanakis | About
Biologist and amateur photographer from Greece living in France. I practice street, object, landscape, seascape, cityscape and people photography since the 70's. I have been using Zenit B, Canon T70, Nikon F2 and, recently, Nikon F6 cameras with negative film (mostly Fuji Reala or 200 ISO). I correct, enhance and sometimes mess about the scans with Photoshop. I am also using digital video stills (SONY) or a mobile telephone (SONY ERICSON with 8 MPixel camera) and I have just won a Lumix TZ10 12 MegaPixel digital camera in the Greeka 2010 photo contest. Some of my photographs have been published in the following travel guides edited by Greeka.

Publications in 17 Greeka travel guides:

Amorgos, Anafi, Astypalea, Folegandros, Hydra, Ios, Kefalonia, Kythira, Milos, Naxos, Paros, Serifos, Sifnos, Skiathos, Sparti, Spetses, Syros.
