Stylianos grew up in Heraklion, Crete.
He started taking photographs and attending lessons at the Hellenic Photographic Society of Crete.  Soon,  he realized that if he wanted to become a  better photographer, he should listen and learn from a variety of people about photography. In February of 2007, he joined the Photographic society of University of Crete (F.O.P.K).

Stylianos has worked around Asia photographing for IRIN News, the award-winning humanitarian news service of the United Nations.
In 2013, after a short business trip to London and Paris, he went to Morocco for a short period of time in order  to photograph and explore a  culture that is drastically affected by Europe but also, the fighting between the tradition and the new European lifestyle (just like it happens in Greece).
In the beginning of summer 2013, he came back to Greece willing to “comment” on the situation of his country.  With his partner, journalist Fragkiska Megaloudi,  they worked on issues like “Crossing into the unknown: the plight of Migrants in the fields of Greece” , ” Poverty in everyday life” and ” The middle class situation in crisis”, projects that got published in numerous media such as The Press project, Eleytherotypia, The spiegel.
In October 2013, Stylianos was honoured by the Greek President of  Democracy.
