Born and raised in Delphi, Greece, Kostas developed a love of the visual medium from an early age. By the age of 13, he was documenting family, social and cultural events that occurred in his picturesque town in the foothills of Mt. Parnasus. Kostas spent endless hours producing short films. He eventually teamed up with well known artists in Athens to advance his skills and also appeared in various theatrical productions in Athens. As a natural born artists he also studied photography and has a varied portfolio of landscape scenery and portraiture from Greece and the Bay Area. His talent in Photography gave him the added skill of learning composition and lighting which is an integral part of producing films that only skilled photographers are able to master. This attribute gives Kostas an edge over most other video producers.

How does Kostas Petrakos Photography differ from all other photographers? The answer is that I studied photography when digital did not exist. I invested years perfecting my talent. In today's high tech environment, everyone can become a photographer. However, the years of experience makes the real difference. Viewing a beautiful photo on the screan is often different from the real print that you receive. If the print does not look as clear as what you see on the screen then you have not received a high quality photo.
