Meet Our Ambassador: Esteban Gil

We’re so excited to announce this Ambassador because it feels a little bit like introducing a family member!  Esteban Gil was one of the first users and early supporters of Aftershoot, he started using it in August 2020. 

Because of his infectious enthusiasm and love of the photography community, he joined us at our booth at WPPI and at Shutterfest 2021. We think he was even more beloved than our magical unicorn!

Esteban is the Founder of Steel & Flint Society which has ongoing education for photographers and hosts online workshops. Join him in the Steel & Flint Society Facebook Group to meet other photographers who are looking for inspiration and creative ways to run their business!

You can view more of Esteban’s work at his website, or get social with him on Instagram at @egilphoto.

Get to Know Esteban Gil

Meet Esteban Gil, Connecticut-based wedding photographer, and educator based in Guilford, CT.

Esteban Gil, wedding photographer

Over the years, he has honed his raw creative abilities into a talent that is undeniable. Esteban places importance on capturing emotion first and art second, but consistently succeeds in turning almost every moment into artistry.

His work is easily recognized by his well-thought-out framing, out-of-the-box creativity, and even more so his imaginative use of light – be it natural or flash.

Through the Steel & Flint workshops and corresponding Facebook community, Esteban has cultivated an environment that fosters growth through education, group discussions, artistic challenges, unlimited access to guidance and advice, and friendships.

As he continually strives to grow in his own abilities and career, he never hesitates to advise, encourage, and help others to grow

He was also voted “World’s best-looking photographer” in 2019, 2020, and 2021 by Himself.
