At the Emmanuel Fine Art Photography Gallery, we’ve made it our mission to provide superior product quality, customer service, and user experience to all of our visitors. We aim to prioritize:
For over 32 years, Emmanuel Panagiotakis has been constantly pushing the frontiers of fine art photography. He’s built a reputation and creating incredible art by capturing the total range of light and colors as the human eye can see. He is driven by a desire to be the best in understanding and appreciate light. To experiment with new ways of capturing and seeing the moment in his photography. His life’s mission is knowledge.
Leroy is a corporate leader in Pittsburgh and a Western Pennsylvania native who met Emmanuel through their involvement in their community’s youth soccer program. Once Leroy learned of Emmanuel’s talent for capturing strikingly beautiful images, they joined forces to create a space that would bring Emmanuel’s work to life. Leroy’s involvement in the Gallery is a way for him to add to the local cultural scene while helping his friend realize his dream.
At the Emmanuel Gallery, we are dedicated to helping clients in designing their ideal space. Please contact us if you’d like to order one of Emmanuel’s prints, have questions regarding price, or have a special request. If you are in the Beaver or Pittsburgh region, you are also invited to visit the gallery in the town of Beaver during business hours. We can also take appointments outside of standard gallery hours. We’d be delighted to welcome you and answer any queries you might have.
