More about Gabriella S....
What do you love about your job?
I love the emotion a person can give when they are staring down my lens. The curiosity that one can find in a picture is what amazes and draws me in. I absolutely love being able to create this beautiful curiosity which is snapshotted in a small moment. Also allowing people to be drawn into someone else's gaze is the essence of why i love photography as it allows people to leave their own thoughts behind and focus on what's in front of them.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done a lot of event shoots and i try to float around without being intruding. This is definitely key to capturing those natural moments between people as some can be quite nervous with a camera around them. Lately i have been shooting families and that has been great. I try to interact with the family and get them doing things they love to do and keep the poses quite natural. I also do a lot profile shoots and prefer natural light and being outdoors as this creates a more lifestyle feel to balance the corporate side of their job. I find that clients will always love the outdoor shots more than the indoor shots.

A fun fact about this photographer
I almost stopped photography due to a really harsh and abusive set of feedback i was given on some of my work. I chose to continue and here i am writing this fun fact while being a snappr photographer. Sometimes people's opinions can be quite degrading but it will always be your choice as to what you do with that opinion or feedback. It doesn't define you!
