About the Speakers:
Gail started out studying architecture at Syracuse University. After two years, she realized she was more interested in seeing the architectural wonders than learning how to creat e them. She decided to take a two - month break from college and meet up with a friend and travel around Europe. That two - month trip turned into a yearlong back packing odyssey around the world. When Gail returned, she knew she wanted to purse a lifestyle of travel and exploration and thought th at photography would lead to that end, and she enrolled at Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA. At the time she was one of six women in a school of six hundred. It was her first experience being in a predominately male environment.
Using photography as an excuse, Esteban has travelled to more than forty countries around the world. His passion is to experience the world and capture it all with his camera. He is a Sony ambassador, represented by YellowKorner Gallery worldwide, a photography professor, leading many creative workshops, photography expeditions and conferences about his own work. When Esteban is not photographing some remote country, he’s working in the studio, processing his photographs and researching about new places to visit and choosing his next adventure. Also, his professor career and photography curator work has turned him into a restless person who is always curious looking for new references to share with his students and photography lovers. This passion turned him into an international World Press Photo Global Talent nominator.
