Gian Andrea grew up in a small town in north of Italy, where, since he was a kid, he played with photography. He then moved to Milan for college. His photography there grew from roots in the arts of architecture and theater. When he traveled to New York he started exploring celebrity and fashion photography. As a self taught photographer, his approach to photography is both instinctive and conceptual, where his ability to direct his subjects allows them to have the freedom necessary to express themselves.
Gian Andrea currently divides his time between Europe and the US. His photography encompasses a full range of work that has been published around the globe and includes advertorial campaigns for the fashion and music industries, as well as celebrity portraiture and countless editorial publications. He has collaborated with Vanessa Hudgens, Kristin Chenoweth, Brooke Shields, Beyonce`, Clair Danes, Alicia Keys, Adrian Greenier, Chris Brown, among others.
