Photographer Tokyo Japan

My name is Giancarlo Marino. I’m a fashion, editorial, beauty and swimwear photographer based in Tokyo, I’m a pro photographer located in Japan.

My work has been described as classic, romantic and clean. Also hard and sometimes dramatic. These are all the qualities that make up the perfect image. I try to nail it every time.

I was born in Napoli, Italy. I picked up my first camera at age 12. It was a Kodak camera bought with the money I saved from my weekly allowance. I began photographing the beauty that surrounded me in my hometown. In high school I began to take interest in the beautiful Italian designers I saw in fashion magazines such as Vogue and W magazine. Being 100% Italian it was love at first sight. I was famous fashion and celebrity photographer Jerry Avenaim’s assistant for 1 year. Sometimes I use many of his advices to achieve the best results when I shoot.

As I started working as a freelancer photographer, I was part of advertising campaigns such as Armani, Diesel, Banana Republic, R&R Eye-wear. I collaborated with magazines such as Elle and Vogue. Worked in the Italian and US fashion industry for over 20 years before moving to Tokyo Japan.
I currently work mostly in the Asian fashion market.
