I've been a photographer and graphic designer for more than 6 years. As a photographer, I've worked in different areas much as photojournalist, social, culinary and life style. Captured memories has been my latest passion, my photography style is fresh and candid, because I believe that pictures must have soul and that's true smiles and unique gestures. In addition to being a host I'm leader of the airbnb community in Buenos Aires. About myself, I like travel, sightsee, make new friends and share cultures. Discover and rediscover Buenos Aires is one of my favorites activities.

Gissel is a jewel on AirBnb. She met and exceeded my expectations - not only for the photo shoot only but so much more as you're about to read. Her English is impeccable (very rare in this part of Spanish South America) which made communication between us flawless. Guys, when I say this girl is special, I mean it. Reading past reviews, I was convinced that she's the person I want to work with for this photo shoot. She not only made me feel super comfortable but went above and beyond - suggesting different poses, and locations. She also kindly accepted to take pictures of me using my phone and camera. And boy, weren't the pictures just out of this world! I loved loved loved my pictures. This girl is a pro. After our photo shoot, Gissel took me to the Palermo area where we had the most sumptuous breakfast of the most sumptuous pancakes, carrot cake and croissants (yea I'm a foodie). We also got to share yerba mate, and it felt really special. As I was leaving Buenos Aires, I forgot my phone at the airport. Gissel not only followed up with the airport police and made sure that my phone was recovered, but she also helped me with translation of police documents that would ensure I get my phone released. In addition to that, she constantly updated me on my phone's whereabouts and even made arrangements with DhL to make sure I get my phone shipped to me in Kenya. Gissel and I started off as client customer relationship, but we shared so much and have now transformed into friends. I am looking forward to fulfilling my promise of showing her around my hometown when she visits. If you're looking to do a photoshoot while in Buenos Aires, Gissel is the one you need in your corner. Look no further!

This was such a great experience. This was my first time doing a photoshoot and Gissel made me feel so comfortable. She's very educated and helped me learn about BA during the shoot. I am so happy I did this and I highly recommend this experience!

This was a perfect excursion to do. We did not walk that far but we were able to capture key parts of the city in the background.

Gissel was perfect for my photos in Buenos Aires! Not only that, but helped me out with getting a SIM card at a shop nearby. Above and beyond! Gissel is literally an expert with the camera and you can tell Gissel has done this before. I was also given recommendations to the area and stories about some of the things that we took photos in front of. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to get photos taken in the BA or Palermo area.

We had a wonderful experience with Gissel. She took beautiful pictures of our family and was able to keep our sleepy 10 month old son active and engaged. The pictures are beautiful and we loved seeing a bit of Buenos Airs with Gissel as our guide. She was prompt, easy to communicate with, very friendly, and talented. Would recommend to anyone.
