Vegas Giovanni is an American photographer born in Pensacola, FL and raised in Atlanta, GA where he currently resides. Giovanni has had a knack for thinking abstractly and embracing his natural curiosities since childhood. While growing up, he was fascinated by the world of manga, anime, and videogames, which now serves as a catalyst for most of his creative endeavors. Throughout his teenage years, Giovanni struggled with self-identification during that time he discovered the fashion industry and modeling which became a new outlet for him.
After years of exploring painting, drawing and design, he finally picked up a camera. Giovanni was able to merge his passions: elaborate and fanciful character design with the world of fashion editorial. It wasn’t until attending the Savannah College of Art and Design, where he received a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Photography, that Giovanni was able to combine his passions to create fanciful photography. Being able to juxtapose his love of fashion alongside his interest for anime, allows Giovanni to express himself uniquely. His charismatic personality allows for him to connect with his subject in an unique way to create distinct bodies of work.
To date, Giovanni has been featured on Billboard Music, VH1, MTV, BET, Hypebeast, XXL and currently has work on Fox’s number one hit series, Empire. Giovanni continues to build his brand and further his professional career in photography.
