A little history and insight into a family’s legacy of creativity….In 1966, upon his return from the Airforce where he was aerial recon photo specialist, Konstantinos Manolis Sr. opened his first studio in downtown Athens, Greece. He specialized in the art of studio photography and dark room film development and printing. His family business passed to his son Kostas Manolis Jr. who immigrated to the United States in 2014. Konstantinos Jr. started at a very early age, but on his 17th birthday, he took the lead in his family business while studying photography at visual arts school where he received his photography certificate and teaching credentials. Konstantinos Jr. has shown at major museums including the Benaki Museum, National Archeological Museum, Historical and ethnological museum of Greece, Greece War Museum, Greek Parliament, and in numerous Private collections.
Now in the greater San Diego and So Cal area, the newly branded ‘Frame and Style Photography’ specializes in weddings - with Konstantinos Jr. capturing the love and ubinue spirit of over 300 happy couples over 15 years.
This visual arts dynamo has also developed over twenty publications for Catalogs and Books, over ten Gourmet food photography shoots for restaurants, and hundreds of jewelry and artifact shoots for Museums and private businesses, and photographed over 300 corporate events.
