As chief executive officer of Art Partner, Giovanni Testino oversees the representation of an elite roster of photographers, stylists and fashion film directors such as Merc Alas and Marcus Piggot, Terry Richardson, Willy Vanderperre, Lucinda Chambers, Melanie Ward and Anthony Turner.
Co-founded in 1992 in collaboration with celebrated photographer (and Giovanni's brother) Mario Testino, the agency is now widely recognised as one of the foremost sources for creative talent and has partnered on editorial and advertising projects with clients such as Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Benetton, Versace, Dior, American Vogue, Interview and Harper’s Bazaar.
Alongside artist management and representation, the agency also offers a full in-house production and development service from its offices in New York, London and Paris and currently produces over one thousand projects per year. Giovanni also oversees the full Mario Testino portfolio through the sub-division ‘Giovanni Testino Inc’ and also introduced a licensing and syndication service for artists represented by the agency, offering full support in the development and printing of books, posters and print sales.
