Information about Giorgia
I am a graduated documentary photographer providing high quality work for a variety of media. I work effectively with others but I am also competent in leading and motivating a team to efficiently achieve innovative and polished results. I am an highly self-motivated person who works well on own initiative to achieve desired goals and demonstrates enthusiasm for the development of new ideas and concepts. Pushed by the desire to influence people through photography and art I built an extensive knowledge working with agencies, magazines, festivals, museums, schools.
My knowledge and experience as a documentary photographer combined with my sensitivity for sharing and communicating ideas create sparks for teaching and class debate which catch on quickly. I am always positive and willing to participate in any of the duties and calls to action teaching demands. In addition, I am motivated and interested in learning about my professional performance by being proactive, requesting feedback and points about my teaching.
I am uniquely self- reflective in my professional role, trusting the power of review will set the framework in place for an ongoing successful development of my career path. I care about what I deliver that a quality of service is reached in the role I am entrusted with.
I have been working in schools (early years - adult) over the last five years and I have never disappointed anyone nor my students.
