Georgios Giannopoulos (Ggia)[edit]


My name is Georgios (born 1975), I have been contributing to Wikipedia and related projects since 2007. I have studied electrical engineering and computer science. Currently I am working as a teacher of computer in secondary education. I am passionate about black and white photography which I started working since 1993. I develop my black & white films myself but after 2005 I stopped developing photos in a dark room and I am using a film scanner to scan the negatives. The manual cameras I am using include Nikon FM2 and Leica R4 but most of the images I upload in commons are shot by a relatively recently bought (January 2009) Nikon D700 full-frame SLR camera. In my personal blog you can find mostly my black and white photographs. My Nikon D700 has also a GPS and most of my uploaded photos are geo-located.

I love traveling and I like to photograph architecture and monuments. A lot of my images in commons are panoramic images created by stitching software.
