I’m not the only one photographer of my family, my father and my brother had a lot of “know how” in this field also. But the older photographer of my family (as far as I know) was Apostol Galmeanu, one of my uncles.
Apostol Galmeanu had a photographic studio in Bucharest in 1920, the studio was located on 192 Viitor Street in the year of 1920 and 10 Niculae Tei Street in the year of 1930. So, I have to say that my family has at least 90 years photographic activity background, since 1920.
