About Gerardo

Welcome to After Image Studios, a professional photography business specializing in capturing the beauty and essence of food, headshots, and commercial photography services.


Using top-of-the-line equipment and technical expertise, we work closely with each client to exceed their expectations and bring their vision to life. Whether it's a delicious dish or a professional portrait, our commitment to excellence ensures that you receive nothing but the best.


My educational background is in graphic design and photography. I began my studies at Cerritos College where I focused on graphic design. At Rio Hondo College, I expanded my skills by studying both graphic design and photography, ultimately earning my A.S. in Commercial Art. I continued my education at California State University-Long Beach, where I earned my Bachelor's degree in Studio Arts with a concentration in graphic design and photography.


I come fully prepared for every session. My toolkit includes a camera with 2-3 lenses and accessories, a laptop, a tripod, and lighting gear such as a light reflector and diffuser. Additionally, I bring along safety equipment like sandbags and various cables to ensure smooth operation. For specialty shoots, I may also have shooting surfaces or extra items if discussed in prior consultation. You can trust me to come equipped with everything needed for outstanding photography results.
