Gala Ricote

Gala is an evocative photographer whose vibrant imagery captures the beauty of humanity in vivid colors. She was born in Mexico City, raised in Miami, FL and is currently based in Los Angeles, CA.  Gala's passion for photography ignited at a young age, influenced in part by her parents— a commercial photographer and an accomplished actress. Her journey into the world of visual storytelling commenced with studies in cinematography and advertising at the University of Miami.   

What sets Gala apart is her profound ability to see and express beauty in every detail. Despite facing hearing impairment since childhood, she developed a heightened sense of observation, a trait that profoundly influences her work. Gala's photography is characterized by its vibrant colors, placing humanity at its core. Her unique perspective is also enriched by her extensive travels around the world since she was very young.

Gala is on a mission to shed light on stories with a purpose.  She is deeply passionate about representation and inclusivity, and her work serves as a powerful advocate for the diverse stories and people she has encountered.

When not behind the camera, you can find Gala at the beach or on the road, traveling in a camper van with her partner, Daniel, and their dog, Joaquin.
