About me

Hey there! My name is Gilberto Hackl (you can call me Gil).

I’m an economist based in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. During the past years, I have the privilege to travel many different countries. Photography for me, it’s all about the passion.

Welcome to my travel blog! This is where I share travel tips and amazing photography with you from my travels.

Since I was young, I distinctly remember the magic of my first camera, with seven years old. Through the camera lenses, a whole new world opens to me. My pictures are very deep inspired by the work of Ansel Adams and Sebastiao Salgado, my compatriot.

“Each photographer brings his own light from when he was a kid — in this fraction of a second when you freeze reality, you also freeze all this background. You materialize who you are. This is why if you give the same camera to two different people and ask them to shoot the same scene, something different will always emerge. Personality seeps into the mechanism. Magical thinking maybe, but true.” Sebastiao Salgado

 I think that it’s the perfect definition of my work. My photos are simple the reflect of my background, my ideology, and my beliefs.  I hope you enjoy it!
