Nino Muñoz is a fashion, entertainment, and advertising photographer and director known for images that are at once sophisticated and sexy. His photos have been published worldwide in Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, GQ, The New York Times Magazine, Out, Vanity Fair, Esquire, Flare, and Numéro, among others. He has shot campaigns for clients including Lexus, Bruno Magli, Fabletics, Stuart Weitzman, London Fog, True Religion, and Victoria’s Secret. And he is one of the entertainment industry’s go-to photographers, both for celebrity portraits and for movie and TV campaigns for studios such as Warner Bros./MGM, Hulu, YouTube Red, Columbia Pictures, 20th Century Fox, CBS, NBC, and The CW.
In addition to working with some of Hollywood’s best-known names—Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman, Tom Cruise, Daniel Craig, Channing Tatum, Jennifer Lopez, Scarlett Johansson, Beyoncé, Kerry Washington, Kate Hudson, and Julianne Moore, among many others—Nino has also enjoyed a long collaboration with Gisele Bundchen, whom he first photographed for British Vogue in the early 1990s. “Gisele and I were already friends at the time we did the Vogue story together,” Nino explains. “She saw something in me, and she believed in me as a photographer.”
Underlying all of Nino’s work is his unpretentious, appealing personality. “So many people put on a front when dealing with high-profile figures that it becomes an obstacle,” he says. “I approach actors and models like I would anyone else—with respect and kindness.”
