About Marco

Marco Franchina began his career as a fashion photographer in Milan, Italy, where he shot for prestigious Italian magazines such as L’uomo Vogue, Linea Uomo and Grazia.  After moving to New York City, he was commissioned to work with Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine, photographing celebrities such as River Phoenix, Oliver Stone, Sarah Jessica Parker, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers.  He also has photographed Willie Nelson, Winona Ryder, Jewel, G-Easy (Rap Artist) and Audrey Napoleon (Producer/DJ) and many more.

While in New York, Marco was approached by an Australian agency to work in Australia. He worked for top fashion magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, Follow Me Men, Studio and Dolly.  After working in Australia for a few years, he moved back to NYC to work for several magazines including Modern Bride, Seventeen, SELF and Rolling Stone. He has also shot several music videos, commercials and fashion catalogues in his career over two decades.

Testimonials -

"Being the agent for photographer Marco Franchina was a wonderful experience. He was very easy to “book” because of his glorious imagery in his portfolio and the fact that his results were “spot on” with what each client’s needs were. He also has a great personality which made his team and clients have a fun EXPERIENCE. He was so in demand that I hired two more agents (Traci in LA) and (Jill in NY) to keep up with hundred of bookings which included Seventeen magazine, J Crew and Interview Mag" - Bonnie Winston

"Marco is a true artist.  His photographs depict such passion and truth and provoke thought which is what art should be about.  His diverse background, with all forms of photography have kept him very current in both commercial as well as fine art.  He’s one of the best!" - Thomas

"I've known Marco for over twenty years. I would not only like to speak about the integrity of his work but more importantly about his integrity as a friend. Marco is one of the most creative people that I've had the pleasure to meet. He is a true artist. His work is meticulous, clean and sharp. He is a master of light and shadows. He truly captures the essence of expressions and moods. His subjects feel at ease and that is evident by the photos that he produces. Marco is kind, patient and easy to get along with. I’m a big fan."  - Jamie
