Constant reinvention has lead to a legacy of provocative image making at Harry Giglio Productions

Harry Giglio recounts the beginning of his company this way: "I started as an assistant and then opened a small studio in Downtown Pittsburgh. I began to attract assignments from advertising agencies and design firms. My client base quickly expanded beyond Pittsburgh, and I began working all over the world. I soon developed a passion for studio work—shooting all types of subjects: people, animals, industrial products, food, glassware and much more."

When asked what makes his approach unique, he says, "Whatever I am shooting, I strive to create images—to tell stories—in ways that have never been done before—to see things as they are usually not seen. That's always the challenge... that's always the reward—for my clients and for me."

While still photography is a mainstay, recent projects have included video assignments in multiple cities that focused on unique career stories and profiles of accomplished professionals. Video shoots such as these are often packaged to offer clients an array of still photos, as well. "The settings for these shoots can be demanding. I have shot in the heart of San Francisco and in the middle of swamp—all in the same day," he explains.

"With today's technology, it's less about where you're located and more about the talent and experience you bring to an assignment. But one thing is for sure: When I shoot in Philly, I never leave without a visit to Pat's Cheese Steaks," he says.
