Deno Kontoulas - Photographer, Olympic Gold Medalist, Astronaut, Fabricator
Even though Deno is writing this bio himself, he is writing in third-person because that's how he saw it done in other bios. Deno is a native of North Carolina where he has lived most of his life except while he was in the military, during which time he lived other places. He found a passion for photography when he met a girl who liked photography, so he said he also liked it to try to impress her. Turns out, he found he actually enjoyed photography, but not the girl so much. In just over a year, his hobby turned into a profession. Deno started out shooting portraits and opened a small studio. He was doing a lot of headshots for real estate agents when one of his clients asked if he ever photographed houses. Deno had no idea what he was doing, but that has never stopped him before. He shot a few homes and was hooked. He is now a full-time real estate photographer. Deno was voted best Triad real estate photographer in 2016 by his mom whom he paid $20 to say so.
