Meet Gil Marom

Today we’d like to introduce you to Gil Marom.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
I was born in Israel and moved to Dallas at the age of 12. One thing that hasn’t changed about me since I was a little kid is my continuous love for anything and everything creative. Besides taking photos of my family and friends, I have been a dancer for over 15 years and dipped my feet in both singing and acting. After attending the accredited School of Media and Strategic Communications at Oklahoma State University, I developed a passion for graphic design and photography.

Once I finally moved to SoCal, I started pushing my creative skills even further. Every month, I made it a priority to take on a photo shoot and come up with a creative concept for it. Eventually, that led to new clients reaching out, wanting me to help capture them and their loved ones.

All this hard work paid off, as I recently moved to my dream city of Los Angeles, working within my dream industry – creative advertising. Now living here for over a month, I’m eager to seek and chase after my dreams of becoming a creative director either within advertising or entertainment.

Please tell us about your art.
Like some photographers, I continue to rediscover myself. The artist in me keeps telling me: “keep changing”. While the designer in me says “keep a strict branding”. It’s constantly a toss-up. I always inspire for my work to be clean, but with a “kick”. Something that makes you go “WOW!” I draw inspiration from browsing vintage/retro photography and design. It’s my favorite! While I don’t consider my photography to be retro or vintage, I definitely use my inspiration as my driving force during editing. While I truly enjoy the traditional family portraits and headshots, I love coming up with concepts that are out of the box and require a little extra work, thoughtfulness and research.

We often hear from artists that being an artist can be lonely. Any advice for those looking to connect with other artists?
Do your research! After doing searches on google and Facebook I was able to connect with some really talented photographers in the Southern California and Los Angeles regions. Besides finding some great Facebook groups, I am also using Model Mayhem and the app Pro Photo Shoot which is a great way to find both photographers and models.

How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
As a young photographer, I currently only showcase my work online, except for my first feature in Voyage LA under “Flashes & Strokes: A Tale of Two Mediums” 😉
