His grit, creativity and passion have become a winning combination for Gabriel Maia.
All around us, we see people either driven by their passion for doing something in their respective niches or have kept striving to achieve excellence in the same. In both cases, success most of the time has been achieved by people, only because they have totally fallen in love with what they do and suggest people in their industry and the world to do the same and follow their dreams. The world of photography has seen and welcomed many talents over the years, but only a few have gone ahead in making it big. We came across one such highly passionate and talented photographer named Gabriel Maia, who has attained unique success as a professional photographer, also because his success is shared with his daughter, who has equally excelled in the niche, learning the nitty-gritty of photography from her father.
Gabriel Maia had found passion in photography since his childhood and when he was all of 17 years, he purchased his first more advanced camera (Olympus OM-2). Initially, he began capturing many football games and, along with it, also shot images of nature and the environment. However, his interest in photography got serious when he began using the cameras of Canon and Fuji. As a father, Gabriel Maia ingrained the seed of photography in his children as well. This is why both his son Bruno and daughter Rosiane love photography. His daughter earlier on used to become a model for her father. During this time, she developed more interest in the niche and would closely observe the many tiny details of the entire process of photography.
Travelling is also something this lovely family of photography lovers has always loved. Hence, they started travelling to exotic locations and captured the best of the scenery and destination in the process. Gabriel Maia later learned about the Photo Vogue Italia curated portfolios. This motivated Gabriel and Rosiane to plan a photo expedition in Indonesia and purchased the necessary props. They captured thousands of images, edited them and even got approved by the Vogue Italia editors. Today, Gabriel Maia’s images are a part of the Photo Vogue Italia and Art + Commerce.
Talking about an interesting fact, Gabriel Maia says his daughter not only modelled for him but would also capture photographs like him, which would ultimately make it to Photo Vogue Italia or get published somewhere. Seeing the images captured by Gabriel or his daughter Rosiane, one can know the father-daughter bond they share in producing the best of art there is through photography.
