Pierre André Transunto
Pierre André was born in 1970 in Uccle-Belgium. He began to take a keen interest in photography and started shooting at the early age of 14. He enrolled in the Cinematography and Television High School of Rome, "Roberto Rossellini", at which time he also carried out an apprenticeship at a photographic studio where he later became a partner at the tender age of 21. Moving to Milan in 1994 he began working for Piazza Sempione, L'Uomo Vogue, Vogue Pelle etc. In the following years his work took him travelling between Milan, Paris and London and in 1998 he settled back in Rome where he started working for Valentino. In the same year PAT Photostudio was founded.In the last 9 years PAT has had a very successful collaboration with "My Tribu" realizing numerous national and international fashion, media and advertising campaigns. Experience Funder at PAT-NETWORK January 2011 - Present (3 years 6 months) Photographer and videomaker, editor and supervisor of the different workflows. The challenge at The PAT-NETWORK 2009 - 2013 (4 years) In 2009 the “Tribù” grows up as a new reality born out of Pierre André 's will: the PAT-NETWORK. For the past 9 years, PAT Photostudio has been a specialized laboratory for advertising, fashion and portrait photography. The studio has also always taken care of the touch-up and post-production phases of its shoots, thereby constantly delivering finished high quality products to its clients. Moved by the desire to extend his passion for film making and communication and aware of the ever growing need for industry professionals to be all-encompassing; Pierre decided to review and enlarge his original project of a straight-up photographic studio. Taking advantage of sturdy relationships woven over the years with other communication professionals, Pierre got stimulated into creating what has now become PAT-NETWORK. A network of freelance professionals of the advertising and entertainment industries that collaborate with one another for each project in a dynamic tailored around the customer's needs. PAT-NETWORK is a flexible structure that enables customers to utilize either all or only part of the studio's professional sections therefore avoiding the costs of unneeded resources. In the past five years Pierre André has reintroduced himself to cinematographic studies and the moving Page1 image, specializing in documentaries, glidecam-operator and editor,whilst continuing to work extensively and successfully in photography.
