My name is Makis Makris. I was born and have been residing in Kavala, Greece.
I studied “Greek Civilization and Culture” alongside Graphic Arts on “Interior Decoration”.
My first steps into photography were in 2009, when i attended a photographic seminar which organized by the Photoclub of Kavala, of which i am an active member until now.
From January 2017 i also am a member of the BULB Photo Collective (Bucharest Urban League of photographers for the Balkans), which is based in Bucharest, Romania.
