Gabriella Marks is a San Franciscan expat music shooter turned chef-and-farmer groupie. She arrived in New Mexico on pure intuition, but knows why she stays: the spectacular high desert light, the lenticular clouds, and the humbling experience of urging a single squash plant from the dry clay soil and ancient pueblo pottery shards in the garden. Her respect for, and relationships with, the farmers and chefs in the region grows daily.
A recognized name in the regional food world, Gabriella has been expanding her horizons to encompass lifestyle and portrait work in the Southwest and beyond.
From a working perspective, she’s driven to discover in every single shot an opportunity to frame moments and light in harmonious and striking detail. Perhaps the most single most powerful thing she has learned is how essential good listening – to the client, to the subject, to the environment – is crucial to creating the right image.
Gabriella lives just a touch north of Santa Fe out in the wilds of Pojoaque with her very short and rather long chiweenie, and an opinionated flock of little feathered dinosaurs, commonly known as garden variety backyard chickens.

Stories are the reason I do what I do. Everyone has a story. Some are inspirational, some tragic. Stories can change the way we view the world around us and is why I have chosen to devote my career in the pursuit of storytelling. My love of cinema growing up and the stories narrated through the big screen have had huge influences in most of my work today.
