Meet Gil!  

Gil lives in Westchester, NY with his wife and two young sons.  These days he spends a lot time on the floor with his little guys playing with toy tractors and reading lots of books.  He has been a freelance photographer since 2000 and loves meeting new people through photography.   

As a photographer, my approach is to be part of the action that surrounds me.  Elevating what is observed into the real moments that tell our stories. My skills are paramount to my good work but my relaxed personality instantly puts my subjects at ease.  I focus primarily on kids, families and business professionals but am happy to accept almost any visual challenge. Feel free to contact me anytime to discuss your next project.
