Read what some of our other patrons are saying about GFP:
I own an event planning company and have known Gustavo for many years. He is a true professional and excellent photographer! We most recently hired him for a client's rehearsal dinner and the photos were beautiful. His turnaround time on the edited files was very quick, and the print ordering process was very easy. What I also appreciate about Gustavo is he always looks polished and professional at events - he comes wearing a crisp suit, and has a sleek camera set up so he's not too intrusive to guests. Whether he's shooting a married couple, a headshot, or a Fortune 500 CEO, he knows how to interact with each client in a way that makes them feel comfortable and well taken care of.

Gustavo was the perfect choice to photograph our corporate event in the Bay Area. He was timely not only day-of, but in the delivery of the photos afterward. We had so many fantastic photos to choose from and we really appreciated that he captured all aspects of the event. He is professional, yet very personable and warm - we enjoyed our conversations with him during down time and sincerely look forward to working together again in the future!
Sheila W., San Francisco
Gustavo was an absolute pleasure to work with. He offered to come to my office, and was here precisely on time, with all of his equipment. He set up quickly and just as quickly shot a series of great shots (and I am no beauty).
He has a very warm, comfortable personality that puts you immediately at ease, gets his pictures, and is done. He sent me finished copies ahead of schedule.
I heartily recommend him. Reasonably priced, professional, pleasant and very talented.
Richard B., San Francisco, CA
You cannot get anyone better than Gustavo in the Bay Area. I saw his work before I asked him to come and take our headshots, and then I saw how he works, and I could understand why he is so good. First of all, it is all about lighting, and nothing looks good in bad lighting. Then, his style is amiable, and that makes you feel very comfortable and relaxed in front of his camera, and that shows. I cannot recommend him enough.
Gerardo G., Walnut Creek, CA
Gustavo is nothing but professional. He showed up on time and had his very nice equipment set up and ready to shoot on time. As a business owner I appreciate this very much. Coordinating this company team photo shoot was hard enough so when Gustavo was prepared and on top of the logistics of our photo shoot I was very grateful. Our team pics and individual headshots turned out exactly how we wanted them. He's a master of the art! Thanks Gustavo.
Nick C., San Francisco, CA
Gustavo is a pleasure to work with for any occasion. Not only will you look great he will do it with you relaxed and comfortable. Gustavo is timely, professional and friendly all at the same time.
Adrian C., Financial District, San Francisco, CA
Gustavo was a consummate professional. From the way he scheduled my appointment, total preparation for the session, immaculate attention to detail during our shoot, fantastic guidance on what I needed to do in the session and the great pictures he took. He turned the initial cuts the same evening. A few days later after I confirmed the ones I wanted, he had them cleaned up and ready for me to use within days. It was a true pleasure working with Gustavo. I would gladly recommend him to others. Great experience and product in the end.
Muntashir H., San Francisco, CA
Friendliest photographer and human being! Gustavo is one of the BESTS! I truly love how easy it is to communicate with him when talking about what's important for headshots. He makes me smile and I always look forward to working with him. Simply a Genius!
Klodhya G., Portland, OR
All photographers aren't created equally. And that's exactly why you should have your next Headshots done by Gustavo. He has a particular finesse to his craft to make someone feel naturally comfortable in front of a lens. Hands down, the best Headshot craftsmanship I have seen!
Wouter V., San Francisco, CA
Gustavo is a dream to work with! I work at a venue and recommend him anytime I can!
I've worked with him in many capacities from weddings to corporate events. I've watched him interact with guests and he makes everyone feel comfortable and at ease.
I ended up seeing it first hand for myself when he took my headshot!
He responds quickly to requests and emails which makes the planning process a breeze. Once he's onsite, he gets the right shots and the end product is great!
If you're considering hiring Gustavo - DO IT! You won’t regret it.
Jenni R., Las Vegas, NV
If you're looking for a quality photographer, Gustavo is your man! I updated my head shots this year and was impressed how quickly Gustavo was able to get me in for the shoot and get me the proofs. It took me longer to choose which photo I wanted to use than it did for Gustavo to get the final proof back to me. Gustavo is a class act, great to work with for any of your photography needs!
Jake W., San Francisco, CA
I've worked with Gustavo several times as the manager of a successful yoga & Pilates studio in Cow Hollow. He is incredibly professional, thorough & does amazing work. Along with group action shots, he has done all of our instructor headshots which are framed on our wall. We receive endless compliments on our "wall of fame," and several inquiries about the photographer - Gustavo! He knows how to capture anyone's pure, beautiful essence. Such a gift and we are so lucky to have Gustavo as a friend, client & photographer!
Britt P., San Francisco, CA
If you are very picky and are a perfectionist, you will love to work with Gustavo. I have a very challenging personality and have been said to be a difficult client, however Gustavo and I communicated just fine and he picked up on all the needs I communicated quickly and accurately. He was very accommodating to changing the lens on his camera to capture a different type of look after nearly a whole session of me feeling not so satisfied with the shots captured. He had a quick turnaround and payment was easy to make.
Nataly Z., San Francisco, CA
Gustavo was incredible to work with! He is extremely professional, yet was able to help me relax in front of the camera and evoke the best poses for my professional headshots. Posing in front of a camera and holding a fake smile has always been difficult for me - Gustavo's conversation and banter was very engaging and made me laugh, which was reflected in the colorful expressions and reactions in my head shots.
His attention to detail is second to none; between each shot he fixed my flyaway hairs ensured that my blouse and jacket were perfect. He stood at different heights and angles, allowing him to capture various profiles to help me find my most attractive angle. Unlike most photographers I've worked with in the past, Gustavo let me review and choose my favorite angles from the camera so that we could focus on those for a majority of the shots.
It's clear that Gustavo has a trained eye and a very unique talent for photography. I've already recommended him to multiple friends and next time I need photos, I know exactly who to call. Highly recommended!
