He started his working life out as a journalist, who lugged a camera around, taking a snap as he gallivanted around the world writing many news reports for an assortment of employers. Over time the passion for the visual, and in particular the still photography passion, grew as did his skills. His news images have graced the pages of many publications ranging from the New York Times, the Vancouver Sun to the Sydney Morning Herald and the Otago Daily Times as well as many others.

He's put the pen away, honed his self-taught photojournalistic skills with a New Zealand Diploma in Photography (Level 6) in the Manawatu and now focuses on making quality imagery for his corporate, editorial and individual clients.

It is a question that is often asked. Giordano uses that with which he can make the image that you want and does the job perfectly.


In the past it has been a Canon 7D, Pentax K3, Canon 6D and a Canon 5D III. On one occasion it was a Hasselblad while on another a Canon EOS 350D was used.

These days he uses a Pentax K1 II with an assortment of lenses and Godox lighting as well as other gear that is needed. 


That too is a question that is often asked. Prices will depend on the shoot and how much is involved, what props are needed, travel etc. However, as a rough guideline the rates for portrait shoots are as follows:

  • South Africa - R1800 an hour plus R7.00 per kilometre (beyond 25 kilometres from home base).

  • New Zealand - $140 an hour plus 88 cents a kilometre

  • Digital images supplied, prints are extra and are dependent on the printers and what type of print is wanted.

  • Studio/Venue hire is extra

Giordano Stolley retains all copyright of images, unless otherwise agreed to specifically in writing. Sharing of images needs to be requested, with full disclosure, so that Giordano Stolley can determine if a fee is in order, if any.
