I am sure about something: that every single person has their own story, and it is a unique story. This is what I am interested in very much: telling stories with my camera. I am often asked what equipment I use and I usually answer that I primarily use my eyes. And my heart, my soul, indeed all the passion I feel for photography.
- I had been working in a bank before I became a professional photographer. One day I realized I was not on the right track, because I wanted to deal with people instead of numbers.
- My favourite hobby is smiling, but I also love paragliding, rock climbing, and having long conversations about the purpose of life.
- My name Meli in Greek means honey, so I'm no doubt your sweetest photographer ever! :)
