Gian­franco Dal Bianco

Qual­ity with an Ital­ian accent
The son of a pho­tog­ra­pher, the Vicentino Gian­franco Dal Bianco moved early to Brazil where he came to set his own stu­dio and work for some of the most pres­ti­gious mag­a­zines and adver­tis­ing agen­cies, shoot­ing fash­ion, table top, still life, inte­rior design and food, to finally spe­cialise in cars – from stu­dio to set loca­tion to For­mula 1.

Global before Glob­al­i­sa­tion
In 1980 Gian­franco left Brasil to work in Europe – he started in Lon­don, then went to the Fiat Stu­dios in Turin, shoot­ing Lan­cias, Fer­raris, Maser­atis and Alfa Romeos, besides Fiats. Gian­franco was then invited to join Boule­vard Pho­to­graphic, the leg­endary car stu­dio from Detroit. After a few years there and in Los Ange­les he moved to Mex­ico where he lived for a decade and estab­lished a large stu­dio both for him and for rental.

An eclec­tic port­fo­lio
Gian­franco has worked for most of the major brands in the auto­mo­tive indus­try : Fer­rari, Maserati, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Vaux­hall and Piag­gio in Europe ; Ford, Chrysler, GM, Peu­geot and Mit­subishi in Amer­ica ; Nis­san, Renault, VW, Gen­eral Motors, Ford, Honda, Jaguar, Mazda, Toy­ota, Mer­cedes and Chrysler in Mex­ico. Today his port­fo­lio is quite eclec­tic and besides cars –which include web images pro­duc­tion such as 360º visu­al­iza­tion and Quick Time Vir­tual Real­ity– there’s a lot of peo­ple, food, things and places.

A Per­sonal Touch
“A great deal of energy and sen­si­tiv­ity accom­pany me from the cre­ation of sets and def­i­n­i­tion of styling to every pro­duc­tion detail. Art direc­tors are look­ing for pro­fes­sion­als capa­ble of extract­ing the max­i­mum from their tech­niques and cre­ativ­ity while keep­ing focus on a com­pet­i­tive price,” he says. Gian­franco has returned to Europe, more pre­cisely to Lon­don, UK.
