Chicago Photographer Gino Baileau on the rise! June 17, 2011 Hey fellow Chicagoans – Dana Ragazinskas from Billy Dec’s office here! I’d like share with you this “up and coming” photographer that I dig – even Perez Hilton has taken note! Gino Gusich, also known by his artist name Gino Baileau, is a self-proclaimed photographer who grew up in the suburb right outside of Chicago called Melrose Park. At 20 years of age and a college student at the University of Illinois, his talent is far beyond his years. I’ve always said that you can’t judge a book by its cover, nor can you really understand what’s going on inside it until you’ve really taken a look at it. That’s exactly how I feel when I look at Gino Baileau. Although he has a strong “tell it like it is” personality, he remains mysterious and hard to figure out. This is what drew me in, leaving me wanting to know more about him. One thing I knew for sure was that when it comes to photography, he means business! Gino first picked up a camera about 3 years ago and he hasn’t put it down since. He pushes the creative envelope every chance he gets. Since the time I sat down with Gino about a year ago (which you can find on his website under: Reflection Magazine Interview), he has definitely hit his “to-do list” hard since! Gino has recently recorded 3 songs, created a blog for himself, and updated his website with even more pictures and interviews to add to his already large collection. Photos seem to make the world go round. We take pictures to remember, to share, to connect with others, and to express ourselves. With just a click of a button and a sudden flash, a camera instantly captures a moment in time, freezing it for all of eternity. It has been said that “a picture is worth a thousand words,” but when it comes to young photographer Gino, a picture seems to be worth so much more. So be sure to follow Gino Baileau with me, as we watch him turn his dreams into a reality because he definitely has a one-way ticket to the top. 6 Responses Cindy June 17, 2011 This is great!
