About Golden Lion Photography

hired 5 times on Thumbtack

How does your service stand out?

With a background in production design in the film industry and as a screenwriter, I'm often visualizing in my mind. I like to believe my work can tell stories in an almost cinematic way. But unlike the motion picture, the art of photography captures images in a way no other medium does, and this is what drives my passion.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

The excitement and expectation of capturing something unique and extraordinary.

    We hired Gabriel to photograph Corrosion, an alternative club night in Boston. Working with him was a great experience, he was attentive to what we needed for the event and he captured some fantastic images of our guests.

    Absolutely stunning work. No one has yet to capture the essence of "me" and my dancing as this photographer has. He has such a gift for seeing and understanding exactly what should be conveyed through the lens of the camera.

    Even in an environment as hectic as an on-stage circus performance, Gabriel shows a masterful talent for capturing character and expression in his portraits. I highly recommend him!

    Gabriel Rizzo had photographed my "first look" and my wedding last month in Newton. He was very professional and patient. From the first moment I contacted him, he was very interested in helping me with everything and also to find a perfect place for the "first look". I am sure It was a challenge for him to capture the best and right moment for me and my husband, considering the very cold weather and the snow flakes, that brought some magic to the moment.
    Every single detail and shot made me very happy with my pictures. I would recommend him to my friends and to you!

    Gabriel Rizzo has an amazing eye. He has the ability to get inside the action he is shooting as if he is on-stage with the dancers. His photographs capture the physicality of the movement and clearly depict the emotional power of live performance. His work has a fine art sensibility that generates timeless photographs.
