…and why should you choose to shoot with him?
John(ny) Gianniny is a Brooklyn-based photographer who finds peace in the pursuit of truth and beauty. My Photographic vision is formed from the same mindset, and I enjoy a session where I can create slowly and intentionally. I love working with individuals who can both confidently take the lead in their expression and presentation and take direction easily as well (If you don’t feel that these are strengths of yours, don’t be discouraged – I’m happy to work with you and I’m confident that we’ll get there).
Outside of photography, I am a NYC public school teacher – I really enjoy working with my students and I teach technology in the context of a learning environment that is prioritized for students with disabilities. I love the experience of the momentum that I feel on my motorcycle as I glide through the streets of Brooklyn. I have recently reassessed my relationship with music and have started building some compositions – hopefully you’ll be hearing about some of that after I have more time in my studio. I have an active hand and love illustration. If I haven’t done so yet, I will be uploading some of that on this site soon, as an extension of my artistic interests. Finally, I should mention the gold & silversmithing that I do under the alias of Love & Other Demons. I have been making jewelry for the past six or seven years, and I continue to do so here and there in the background, enjoying the process and the slow meticulous nature of the work.
I utilize a large amount of my time working in a creative capacity and try not to get particularly fixated on any specific medium. Different concepts require different resources, materials, and outcomes, and I enjoy learning new technologies, production techniques, or skill sets in order to pursue a vision.
