Raised in Washington D.C., Gabrielle picked up a camera at 17-years-old. She learned photography the old- fashioned way and spent countless hours in the darkroom as a high school senior. After graduating high school, Gabrielle moved to New York City to attend NYU with the intention of becoming a doctor. After her first year as a pre-med student, she quickly decided to abandon medicine and follow her passion for art history and photography. While studying photography, Gabrielle worked with photographers Mary Ellen Mark and Bruce Davidson whom she forged meaningful relationships with. While continuing her work part-time with Bruce Davidson, Gabrielle spent many years working in a black and white photo lab as a professional spotter, retouching fine-art photographs by hand. In 2014 she was looking for a change and decided to move out West to start her career as a freelance photojournalist in San Francisco. Gabrielle found a great deal of guidance by attending the Missouri Photo Workshops, the Mountain Workshops and the Eddie Adams Workshop. In 2016 Gabrielle joined the staff of The San Francisco Chronicle where she has been pursuing both stills and video. Most recently she began organizing the Bay Area Women Photograph meet-ups where photographers in the San Francisco gather for events, to share ideas and collaborate on work.
