gunnisal. Get yours at bighugelabs.com/flickr

From early age I have been interested in photography. But not serously getting involved until twenty years ago or so.

 

People are my favorite genre. Portraits especially. I also like shooting candid on the street.

 

I´m not so much into flowers. Nor sunsets.

 

Thank you for taking time to look at my images.

Gunnar will deliver. He doesn't fool around. His images are always visually entertaining and I do envy him. Makes me want to pull the eyes and brains out of him (and use them for myself, of course). Brilliant photographer and I am happy to have known him online for quite some time now. All the best.

Gunnar's portrait work is so inspiring. Every face seems to tell a story and the use of B&W adds authenticity and character to each image. I am always in awe at how he manages to produce such flawless and impressive work time after time. I have a lot to learn. Congratulations on a wonderful body of work. Phili

His pictures speak loudly about the real beauty, the beauty behind the eyes of these people, the stories their expressions/faces tell are touching. Gunnar´s gallery is a treasure.

When i stumbled on gunnisal photos i got inspired to try to get the same moments as he gets out of his photos. Incredible insight and emotions that gunnisal gives his photos with the right shots.

An inspiration is the first word that comes to mind when I think of Gunnar and his work behind the camera. He knows how to bring out what to me seems to be the very truest essence in a person whether he is in Nicaragua or Africa. It is my goal to be able to take portraits nearly as well as Gunnar. Until then I will … Read more

Gunnar´s portrait Art Exhibition on flickr is a brilliant example of how photographers can publish photos and gain popularity through their skills. He chooses his subjects carefully and has a keen eye for the moment - his work in Africa never ceases to amaze me.

His photos reveal a huge respect and love, he has for his subjects. He also has a beautiful artistic eye for color and composition. So he makes beautiful non’people photos too.

I love Gunnar's work and style. Love his portraits and the people moments he captures, filled with life, with emotions. Also his b&w processing is awesome. If you like people and b&w - like I do - you must follow his work. Keep going on, we love it all the way. Rui

With his camera he managed to capture the essence of this wild and beautiful continent so well: love & anger, joy & sadness, curiosity & shyness, solicitude & abandon, hard work & pleasure, defiance & meekness, worry & patience, you name it! Oh, if these photos could just speak… A sincere BRAVO, Gunnar! (c: Kate (Hungary)
