I hold a BA in Journalism from Dublin City University (First Class Honours, top of class), and I’m completing an MA in International Journalism from City, University of London.
In January 2017 I joined Dublin City University’s School of Journalism Associate Lecturer.
In July 2017 I was invited to join Getty Images creative talent community.
I am a full member of the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) and of the National Order of Journalists (ODG – Italy’s professional register of journalists).
In May 2015 I won “Photographer of the Year” at the Hybrid Media Awards. The category was judged by Getty Images and The Irish Times photographer Kieran Frost.
In June 2017 I was awarded Michelis’s scattapostavinci Food Photography Prize.
Former Head of DCU’s School of Communications Paul McNamara has said of me: “I would place Gianluca in the top two per cent of graduates on a programme that has been running for 25 years and produced in excess of 750 graduates.”
