"There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer." Ansel Adams
Hi, my name is Gabriela and I was born and raised in Bucharest, Romania. I owe much of my artistic upbringing to my father, Viorel. I grew up watching him develop photos in his improvised dark room, and following his lead I developed a passion for the process of photography. These influences have stuck with me from the beginning, and my photographs reveal not only my artistic background, but also the passion for photography I learned from my father.
After a brief foray into economic studies,I returned to my creative roots, and my early love of photography segued into the world of moving pictures. Working as an editor for MTV Romania and as an associate producer at Music Channel Romania, I was prompted to return to academia, receiving my degree in cinematography from Hyperion University in Bucharest.
The ocean’s charm has since stolen my heart from the bustle of city life and transplanted me to Cape May, New Jersey. That is where my passion for photography has fully flourished in the bright and beautiful sunlight. I recently moved my photography business to Maine and I am very excited to meet you. If you want an updated family portrait, capturing your dream wedding or if you just need more photos for your growing business and social media, just reach out.
