More about Gabri A....
What do you love about your job?
The reason I love photography is that I love telling and sharing stories. A well-known cliche quote says, "A picture is worth a thousand words", well I do believe that to be true. As a photographer, I have the opportunity to capture special moments in people's lives and tell their stories in an honest, artistic, and unique way. I love my job because of the exciting moments. Photography is the perfect way to preserve one’s important milestones and I consider myself lucky to be present at those moments. I love the process of photography. There’s much more to a photo session than the shoot itself. It brings me joy to edit, use my creativity, and select the best images.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
Besides shooting people, my experience as a photographer includes shooting watches, pens, bags, surfboards, and food. Whenever I shoot for a brand, I always come up with a vision board so as to set expectations for the client and illustrate how the shoot will take place. However, I prefer to show my previous work when shooting events, weddings, portraits, and other personal assignments. During the shoot, I always do my best to make the clients laugh and have a good time. Playing music, or simply talking and telling jokes is a great way to loosen up and take fantastic pictures.
