Stella Meligounaki,was born in 1978 and grew up in the Cretan seaside town of Chania.

She has loved photography ever since she was a child when she got her new photographic camera ( a pocket one) in the first grades of primary school.

In 2007 she attented the seminars of photography that are organised by the Greek Photographic Company of Creta for beginners photographers and since then she has become a member of it. ​Her love for photography grew along with the necessary knowledge and a dslr has become the extension of her hand.
