I am a musician, painter and photographer. I love the rawness of life and love capturing it in my creative work. I am excited about creating loads of fashion and emotion photography that expresses beauty, style and 'Rawness'.
Gabriel, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
My passion is to express beauty and contrast in the most creative and impactful way. My passion lies in raising people's vibration and touching them with colour. I am new at photography but natural at accentuating beauty in a shot with colour and final creative edit.
Who is your inspiration in life Gabriel? How do you keep inspired?
Nature, people and colours are my inspiration, and they are everywhere to be captured on Film.
We all make mistakes Gabriel; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Photographer; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I realise that it's best to keep focused on the job and not get sidetracked.
Gabriel, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Photographer, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?
I always ask and listen to their needs first. Then I discuss with them and show them my ideas also for their shoot. Communication and Taylor making a clients shoot as they specifically ask is the only way to go.
Please tell us, Gabriel, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
I always make sure to do my homework on each shoot before the shoot date. This gives me a guideline as to when I am able to book each client in and roughly how long it would take the shoot and create the final editing process.
Gabriel, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
I showed them examples of my idea, and they felt inspired.
Gabriel, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
Photographing my kids.
Gabriel, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
An example was creating a Shadow World, basically working with bodies to create animals etc. I felt like a child again with paints and a canvas!
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?
Go within your intuitive and playful creative mind, observe what works and express yourself completely!
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
I'd like to photograph all these categories.
