Photographer / World Wanderer
When not taking portraits in his studio or running photography workshops, Gil is traveling the globe documenting people’s lives and photographing the human story in its natural element. His constant quest to capture the emotions and faces of people from all cultures, both in remote and populous regions of the world, has led Gil to spend much of his time in South East Asia and Africa.
Gil’s calm and friendly demeanor, his artistic eye for detail and his ability to think fast under pressure makes him a perfect problem solver for any shoot.
Based in Chengdu, Gil is the founder of the Chengdu Photography Club, the first international photography club in the Sichuan region. He is a public speaker, photography instructor and shoots documentary stories for NGO’s. His photos have been shown in travel magazines, exhibitions and are in the private collections of photo lovers around the world. In his free time, when his energy isn’t being poured into his craft, Gil can be found riding his motorbike or joining friends for a spicy hotpot dinner.
