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 video games, 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 and modeling industry which became a new outlet for him allowing him the opportunity to showcase his creative personality in real life situations.
After years of finding himself and falling in and out of love with modeling, Giovanni finally decided to pick up a camera which would dramatically change the course of his professional and creative life for years to come. 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 for elaborate and fanciful character design with the world of editorial fashion. Being able to juxtapose his love for the two allows Giovanni to uniquely express himself. His charismatic personality allows for him to connect with his subject in a unique way creating a distinct body of work for the audience, and an engaging experience for the clients.
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.
