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 and religions, 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.
From 2017 Gil is based in Chengdu, China.
Here following his love for photography, he founded the first international photography club in the Sichuan region. Chengdu Photo Club, and within a year the club has more than 1000 members.
He is a public speaker, photography instructor and shoots documentary stories for NGO’s. His photos have been shown in various travel magazines both online and offline.
In his free time, when his energy isn’t being poured into his craft, Gil can be found riding a motorbike or joining friends for a spicy Sichuan style dinner.
