Andrea Olivo

Born and bred in Durban, South Africa, Andrea soon falls in love with photography and relocates in Milan in 2003. There he begins a quick career in fashion and portrait photography and he is noticed by one of the best agencies in town, Aura Photo Agency, which will soon invite him to be part of its team. 

With a great technique and a natural sense of humor, Andrea can create beautiful, elegant images that are at the same time funny and positive, rich with many references from his vast cinematic and photographic culture. His women are sexy and free but never trivial, and their personality comes out strongly from each shot, his men are cool but never taking themselves too seriously. All this was a breath of fresh air is the world of fashion photography, often stiff and pretentious.

To be on set with Andrea means before anything, having a hell lot of fun, and all this positive energy becomes evident in his work. His cool, relaxed approach and his peculiar style are nowadays well recognizable and appreciated by important magazines like Vanity Fair, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Grazia, Gioia, Highsnobiety, Elle, GQ and many other independent mags, as well as big clients like Versace Jeans Couture, Fendi, Max Mara, Diesel, Marionnaud, Jeremy Scott, Mediaset, Carrera, Aperol, Yoox, Bmw, Porsche, Sportmax, Campari, etc.

Andrea Olivo is represented worldwide by Aura Photo Agency.
