At the Studio with Elizabeth

Dancer and performer Elizabeth came by the studio to assist me with a project I am working on.

After our lighting test, we collaborated on a few warm images for the heck of it. Working on impromptu images is the most fun part of working with a performer.

Corporate Headhot Photographer - At the Studio with Arlan

Photographed Actor Arlan Godthaab at the studio this past week. Wanted to create a portrait that provided a pronounced stature. I also wanted to have fun and tried a late 19th Century appeal in the latter images.

Arlan wrote his own marketing copy for the image above

FotoNuova Photography Opens Studio in San Marino

SAN MARINO, Calif.—Feb. 8, 2010—Increasing demand for creative, classical-style portraiture has inspired the birth of a new photography studio in San Gabriel Valley. Twenty-year-plus photography veteran Aaron Gil has turned his knack for capturing priceless moments into a physical address: FotoNuova Photography officially opened its doors at 936 Huntington Drive in Suite E.

“We are absolutely thrilled to share a unique perspective of interpreting imagery with the community,” said San Gabriel Valley native Gil, whose work is inspired by vintage images and classical paintings. “We look forward to working with others who appreciate the aesthetic value of high-quality photography.”

For Gil, who has been practicing photography since 1988, the studio will provide a space for consulting with clients and shooting onsite portraits and headshots. Gil currently specializes in weddings, portraits and on-location event shoots. In addition to his longtime freelance work as an on-location/wedding photographer, he will now hold full-time office hours from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. every Monday through Friday.

The interior of the studio reflects Gil’s introspective shooting style—designed by Style Network veteran Camille Cothron (“Dress My Nest”), the space embodies clean, vintage timelessness with a European ambience. From the plush client lounge offering visitors wine and sparkling water to the multitude of photo displays and fully-equipped shooting room, the venue resonates an establishment dedicated to capturing the natural beauty and autobiographical essence of each subject that walks through its doors.

To book an appointment, interested parties may call (626) 688-6047.
