Carlo Dalla Chiesa



Carlo Dalla Chiesa grew up in various European locales and turned his childhood hobby of taking portraits of family and friends into a successful photography career that has now spanned 25+ years. Having studied under renowned photographers such as Alberto Tolot and Neil Kirk, he embarked on his own prolific photography career in 1987. Dalla Chiesa quickly established himself in commercial photography by bringing a fresh vision and modern approach, along with welcoming creative input and collaborations. 


Carlo’s work has been featured internationally in high-profile ad campaigns for L’Oreal and Garnier along with a variety of publications such as Vogue Spain, GQ, and InStyle. He has garnered praise for his portraits of celebrities such as: Mariah Carey, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Salma Hayek, Clive Owen, Hallie Berry, Hugh Jackman, Eva Mendez, and Jennifer Lopez.    

After years of being dedicated to film photography, Carlo’s creative passion was renewed through the advent of digital technology, and he started the successful ADC Media in Los Angeles with Tolot. 


Always trying to stay ahead of the curve, Carlo spends his free time experimenting with new technology including pulling still photographs from motion footage taken with a RED Epic camera to classic stop-motion techniques and product photography to create fresh perspectives on macro photography, animation, and videography.
