Andrea Gandini was born in Milan in August 1976.

After graduating at the University of Arts, Music and Cinema of Bologna ( Italy ) he moved to Paris where he is now based.

He began his career working in documentary. Following on purpose the the random actions of all sort of people, he developed his passions for portrait. And it’s through portrait that he approached fashion and advertising photography.

Attracted by realism, his images are faithful to the basic notions of sobriety, graphic and spontaneity where the hazardous element is consistently a fundamental step in the creative process.

He loves creating a warm and enjoyable environment on set where his subjects can rely and safely express themselves.

Among his clients are MaxMara, Bulgari, Mario Valentino, Pomellato, Kiko, Etam, Lancaster and more recently he directed commercial and experimental videos.

His personal work has been exposed at the "Royal Academy of Arts" in London, the "Jitterbug Gallery" in Paris, the “Hlam Design Gallery” in Milan and at the "Porto Antico" in Genoa.
