Light, Subject, Moment.
Rodrigo Gaya Villar (b. Miami, 1987) is a freelance photographer, artist, and visual storyteller. His style takes cues from his studies as a photojournalist & cultural techniques gathered throughout his academic journey.
After a few years working as a celebrity, nightlife, & PR photographer in Miami - Rodrigo began developing his signature storytelling approach to all his work. Including but not limited to, long-form cultural documentary projects, and abstract fine-artwork.
In 2020, Rodrigo founded Gayaman Visual Studio, LLC, a freelance photo & video production studio, based in Miami FL, with offices in Mexico City which focuses on producing organic, documentary-styled content for a wide array of clients.
