Gio Staiano is an accomplished international photographer with images regularly published in major media worldwide. After studying photography at the University of Arts London, he moved to Denmark where he assisted influential commercial photographer, Stig Rune, for two years. This was followed by a return to London for an additional four years to assist renowned fashion photographer and director, Zanna—it was in Zana’s studio that he mastered the art of the 10×8 polaroid. Gio has spent the past 15 years refining his distinctive artistic style to capture memorable portraits that blur the boundaries of his subjects, not allowing the camera to totally reveal who they are. Gio lives along the Amalfi Coast in Italy with his wife Lene, who is expecting their first child.
