Raised on the beautiful Island of Crete in the Aegean Sea surrounded by nature, from high mountains to endless blue seas, Manoli first started shooting with film cameras to create timeless images of a lifestyle not many get to experience.  Surfing, dramatic landscapes and environmental portraits is his world.

Currently based in NYC and shooting film exclusively, Manoli's bag is always packed with at least two of his favorite cameras, the Bronica ETRsi and a trustworthy Leica CL, and will often be found roaming the streets with a camera in hand.
