I am a portrait photographer and live streamer living in the San Francisco Bay Area. I was born in the Philippines, but moved around quite a bit as an Air Force kid.
When I was five living in Berlin, I remember begging my parents for a camera for Christmas. They bought me a Kodak Instamatic, you know, the one with the flash cubes you can only use once?
Then in high school in South Carolina, I was known as the “video guy” and was responsible for editing the video announcements at school. I still have a passion for videography, which extends to my video live streaming services I provide today.
I didn’t get serious about photography until 2004 when I bought my 1st DSLR, Canon 10D. My photography styles have followed the events in my life and at the time it seemed like everyone was getting engaged, so I was taking a lot of engagement photos. Then naturally, those folks were getting married, so I started doing a lot of weddings. Next came the babies, and I even had kids of my own so I was doing lots of newborns.
Currently, I love creative edgy lighting for photography. You can expect that I will have a fine attention to detail on your project and you can rely on me to execute on your vision.
When I’m not photographic clients, I’m usually photographing my family, especially my two boys. Feel free to check out my other site www.garycruz.com where I share my different YouTube channels from Gadgets to Investing.
My musical taste ranges from The Cure to N.W.A.
I still create and manage websites. Here are a few examples:
