Gabriel Nivera


About & Contact

Let me tell you a little bit about me.

I was born in Boston, but grew up in Indonesia, Hong Kong, & the Philippines. I finished law school in the U.K. but decided being a photographer was more fun than being a corporate lawyer. I am based out of Los Angeles & Toronto. I am ethnically Filipino and a dual-citizen of the United States & Canada. I love to travel, eat, drink, seek adventure, meet strangers, make new friends, get into silly situations that turn into crazy stories to share, and of course take the occasional photograph.

I am curious and love to immerse myself in a project; soaking in as much information as I can. I love to collaborate closely with people, be it the subjects of my photographs or my creative partners. I strive to create a memorable shoot experience filled with thoughtful images that tell an engaging and interesting narrative.

I am available for commercial and editorial projects anywhere in the world so long as my two passports can get me there.

Let’s create something magical and have a great time while we’re at it!
