Gabriel Medina was born in the city of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. It was his father that put a camera in his hands for a first time when he was 6 years old. At that time, he started to develop his artistic abilities. He began practicing photography and video auto-didactically, in this process he fell in love with those disciplines, discovering his vocation. He has always liked to attend art galleries, museums and concerts and being involved in that world, marveling at how the creativity and cameras work together to accomplished beautiful and spectacular things. This made him wish to be creating instead of watching. In March 2004 he immigrated to the city of Miami, one of the most exciting and culturally diverse cities in the United States. Since he was a teenager, he worked in personal projects and photo editing assignments, gaining experience and knowledge on those areas. He is a faithful believer that without God he cannot do anything, being this his engine to do a work not less than perfect in every area.
