********READ THIS BEFORE CONTACTING ME!*******
Hello! Thank you for checking out my work. I am currently shooting again with a limited availability. If you would like to work with me, please send me a message at contactgabino at gmail dot com. I will be able to return your message much faster that way. If you have contacted me and I haven't replied, just send me a nice little reminder. Life is ever busy and I must apologize if I didn't get back to you.
*********No surprise ESCORTS!*************
I do not allow models to show up with escorts without checking with me first. If you show up with an escort they may be asked to wait in the car or you may be turned away. I had an open policy but a model brought a shady friend who stole stuff from me.
Ps. Please do not message me complimenting my work and how you would "love" to be apart of it. Then once I agree to shoot with you, send me your rates. I believe in professionalism, and that is not professional behavior. I will ignore any future communication from you.
With that said if you like my work and want to send me travel dates and seeking work, that is fine. I cannot stress the importance of stating your intentions clearly from the beginning.
If I reply and want to hire you, I will.
I'm a college grad from Cornish College of the Arts.
I am mostly interested in night/evening photography right now, but I also like to branch out whenever possible.
This may include;
Seasonal stock images
I like to use film whenever possible. I love the look of film and the process, but sadly its becoming harder and harder to do... Dam you KODAK! DAM YOU!!!!!
I also shoot lots of digital and I love to print.
Prints look so much better than LCD screens. =P
I WILL NOT photoshop anyone to make them look like a porcelain doll. If you're having someone alter your photos to a high degree to make yourself look better then you actaully are, you are lying to yourself and anyone that you may potentially work for. Plus natural just LOOKS BETTER! Little changes here and there are fine. For an example, small skin blemishes. With that said using photoshop to achieve a certain artistic look is fine.
Note to Models:
I would like to meet with you first before the actual shoot, usually just for coffee or lunch to go over some specifics. This is also to protect myself from flakes and to see if you are actually serious. Its also better for me to see what your personality is like before we start shooting. Trust me, it helps.
Feel free to contact me for more information regarding rates.
I am more than reasonable.

I hate to sound rude, but please do not contact me for a TF wedding. I have shot weddings before and I do not need to add that type of photography to my portfolio. I only accept paid inquiries regarding weddings.
Lots of images, and regularly updated!
