John-Paul Pietrus

John-Paul Pietrus was born in the Philippines and raised in the midwestern United States. He studied photography, film and painting, and moved to Hong Kong to pursue his photographic passions. After working for a period as a news photographer, he transitioned to fashion—a shift that eventually took him to London to focus exclusively on editorial and commercial assignments, art commissions, and filmmaking.

His fashion and beauty photographs are characterized by vibrant and dynamic compositions that are emblematic of the creative energy of the industry. He employs the distinct stylistic elements of super-8 in his filmmaking, adeptly weaving fashion into compelling narratives and themes.
Pietrus has received numerous awards of recognition and exhibited internationally.
