Miami, FL       |      Mexico City


Light, Subject, Moment.

Whether on a street photography session in Mexico City, editorial commissioned work for companies and organizations in Miami, or creating artwork for art galleries and collectors around the world, Rodrigo's organic documentary approach documents natural yet dynamic moments in his images.

Documentary freelance photographer Rodrigo Gaya Villar uses his decades of experience to showcase the magic of the everyday through photographic storytelling.

Currently available for commissioned work.

"Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished, there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again." Henri Cartier Bresson
