Keeping this in consideration, what does the root word graphy mean?
-graphy. The English suffix -graphy means a "field of study" or related to "writing", and is an anglicization of the French -graphie inherited from the Latin -graphia, which is a transliterated direct borrowing from Greek.
Likewise, what is the Greek and Latin root for photo? It comes from the Greek, phos, photos. This Root is very much involved in PHOTOgraphy of all kinds; so much, in fact, that we think the word PHOTO means PICTURE.

Consequently, what does the Greek word photo mean?
photo- word-forming element meaning "light" or "photographic" or "photoelectric," from Greek photo-, combining form of phos (genitive photos) "light," from PIE root *bha- (1) "to shine."
