Customer Spotlight: Gustavo Ortega

2 months ago 250 Views

We have a number of talented and interesting customers all across the country and we think it’s time to shine a spotlight on them. Every month we will be spotlighting a customer and ask them to share their special talents and experiences in the photography and video world. This month we talk to Gustavo Ortega from Orlando, FL.

Tell us a little about yourself and what you do?

I love film & creating art! I’m a cinematographer (Storyteller).

How did you get into photography and/or video?

Everything began 9 1/2 years ago at my beautiful beach wedding in Puerto Rico with our wedding photographer. When I saw our 1st picture I said “That’s what I want to do”. 5 years later I transitioned into video because I saw another opportunity to grow my business. At the time I felt comfortable enough with what I could capture and it was the best decision I would ever make.

Where are you located?

I’m located in East Orlando by the Waterford Lakes area.

What are some of your favorite hobbies/interests outside of photography?

Spending quality time with my beautiful wife and my two precious boys.

What is your favorite thing about being a photographer/videographer?

That I get to travel the World to places like Dubai, Faroe Islands, Denmark, Manchester England, most of Latin America, USA, Canada and much much more…

What is your least favorite thing about being a photographer/videographer?

Editing!

What is your current favorite piece of rental equipment?

Canon’s 14mm f/2.8 L series lens.

If you were going to a deserted island and could only bring one camera & lens – what would it be?

I would take my DJI Phantom 4 to capture everything from a birds eye view.

Where can people follow you or find your work online?

My website is GustavoOrtega.com. You can also find me on Instagram (@Gusort), Facebook (GustavoOrtegaPro), YouTube, and Vimeo.

Last and most importantly, what is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
