Photographer, living in San Francisco.
STEVEN MANOLAKIS is an international photographer based in North Canton, Ohio in the United States. At the young age of 18, he moved over to beautiful Sydney, Australia where he discovered his love for photography and travel. He focuses most of his work overseas, drawn towards places of cultural difference and natural beauty.
An adventure seeker attracted to the outdoors, he is always on the lookout for the world's most beautiful landscapes. His passions for travel have already taken him through the great Himalayas in Nepal, the Sahara Desert in Morocco, and to other great places such as Jordan, Israel, Fiji, Spain, UAE, New Zealand, and Australia.
I am a photographer living in beautiful Perth, Western Australia. My first foray into photography was taking my first Kodak Instamatic on a trip to Africa when I was 11 and I was a bit hooked. But like 99% of us, have found
so many other aspects of life more dominating, so wasn't able to apply my love for it as much as I'd like. But over the recent few years, I've decided to make the leap and put a big focus on advancing my love for photography and start my own photographic business.
I've had some accolades awarded to me by Australian Photography in 2015 & 2017, awarding my Landscape, Black&White and Nature entries as Highly Commended and Commended. Also in 2017, I was awarded Top 10 Emerging Photographers by Capture Mag in their Photographer of the Year's Art category.
My personal favourite style of photography is landscape and travel (combining two loves is a real bonus). But more recently I am enjoying pushing the boundaries between photography and art, with a particular emphasis on movement in imagery and especially that of the ocean, of which we are so blessed with here in Australia. And my other newfound love is aerial photography. I recently purchased a DJI Phantom 4 drone, which is a lot of fun to play with. This aerial vantage point for photography opens up a whole new way of capturing at the extraordinary beauty of Mother Earth.
Después de darle muchas vueltas a la fotografía, al fin encontré en 2.015 en la fotografía de calle y en la documental, las que más me apasionaban. Desde entonces no puedo dejar de hacer fotos.
