In recent days photographer Gabriel Ramírez Romagnoli has tried to capture, what he likes instead of his usual photography work, even he feels also his work as wedding photographer as a very beautiful job.
He loves to develop own ideas and to translate them into photos, although he almost has no time to do this kind of ‘own’ pictures, but he doesn’t let pass any opportunity to do so, when he gets the chance for it.
So Gabriel has a lot of photographic heritage in his family, but never realized this until he had a reflex camera in his hands. He doesn’t know why, but somehow it was very easy for him to understand and to work the camera.
When he was 34 years old, he began to study for a degree in photography. Unfortunately it was not possible before due to the poor economic situation that prevailed at home.
In the beginning Gabriel did portrait photography with everyone he could find, until someone suggested to pay him for his work. Of course it was only a small wage, but Gabriel realized, that he can charge for his photography.
So in his photo classes Gabriel was very attentive. His teacher was old an, who had
Once back in Mexico City under challenging circumstances with his mother in a hospital with cancer, his Uncle, whose job is to be a doctor and who kindly bore the expenses of hospital for Gabriels mother, invited him to breakfast.
His uncle didn’t understand much, what was happening in Gabriels life at that time, but took him to his office and asked him, what he needs for his studies. Gabriel replied hesitantly, that he would need a camera for about. Immediately his uncle pulled the needed money out of his savings and gave it to Gabriel.
With this money Gabriel bought the Canon Rebel Xti and started to capture everything he could. The Canon was very versatile compared to the analog camera, he had known until then.
Gabriel just in time bought a 60D, which was the camera, that gave him more flexibility to work at weddings. After that came the 7D Mark II and 7D and 5D.
Today Gabriel teaches at the University, he studied himself and currently is training to grow as a photographer. He still loves to take pictures and occasionally does sessions with models.
