Michael Grecco

Michael Grecco is an award-winning photographer and director based in Los Angeles. He is recognized internationally for his high concept imagery, mastery of lighting, and powerful connections with his subjects. His immense body of work encompasses fine art, celebrity portraiture, music, and commercial and editorial photography. Born in New York City, Grecco attended college in Boston, where he began his professional career shooting for the Associated Press and covering the music scene for the legendary FM radio station WBCN. Previously unseen photographs from his time as a music photographer feature in his latest book, Punk, Post Punk, New Wave: Onstage, Backstage, In Your Face, 1978–1991 (Abrams), and the accompanying multimedia exhibition Days of Punk, which premiered at Photo London in 2021. Currently, it is on view at La Térmica Museum in Malaga Spain, where the opening drew major international press coverage. The show will continue to travel the world.

Michael moved to Los Angeles in the late 1980s when he was invited by People Magazine to come west to be a celebrity photographer. He has continued to create new work ever since, and his images have appeared in publications including Time Magazine, Vanity Fair, Esquire, The Boston Globe, The Guardian, and Rolling Stone, among many others. A father to three, he lives and works in Santa Monica with his wife and their two Russian Blue cats. In his spare time, he can be seen exploring his adopted hometown’s diverse neighbourhoods and subcultures on his Triumph Bonneville motorcycle, a favourite camera in tow, ready to find, capture, and inspire. Michael Grecco is represented by Atlas Gallery and Iconic Images in London, The Howard Yezerski Gallery in Boston, Modern Rocks Gallery in Austin, TX, and The PhotoGallery, Halmstad, Sweden.
