Born in Pensacola, Florida and raised by his sister and his single mother, Ian was always encouraged to freely explore his creative gifts and flourish as a free spirit. Ian discovered his ability to draw and design at an early age. Around the same time, he fell in love with gaming and anime culture. These things combined allowed the young artist to lose himself in the fanciful worlds he built with his imagination.
After relocating to Atlanta at the age of fourteen with his mother, Ian stepped away from visual arts in hopes of re-identifying himself. Time passed, and an immense amount of growing occurred. Ian soon found himself drawn to the luxurious realm of fashion. He strove to be a part of it; first in the modeling industry where he faced numerous levels of creative barriers and fiscal obstacles, including being homeless for months at a time, and later, in the photography industry. This slight detour did not, however, stop his climb to the top. After crashing and burning, there rose from the ashes... Vegas Giovanni was born.
Equipped only with a camera and the burning desire to achieve greatness, Vegas took off head-first into the high fashion photography industry. The goal was set-- he was to become the photographer he had always wished to work with, producing only the most tasteful and alluring of photos. It is clear to see now that Vegas is working toward accomplishing his goals.
