Meet Gene, not only the man behind the name but the man behind the camera. For 15+ years Gene has earned his living working with incredibly talented people in the entertainment and publishing industries. He received his BA in fine art from The Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and went on to receive his Masters from SVA (School of Visual Arts) in NYC.


Professionally, Gene is an award winning cover artist in the publishing industry with a special focus on sci-fi, fantasy, and cinematic art. He created GM Studio, LLC, as a full-service digital art studio where he’s able to bring his passion for cinematic lighting and energy to his still shoots. Because he shoots a lot of entertainment work the studio is often full of incredible props and costumes. The atmosphere is professional and inspired so pick up a sword and have some fun!


Meet Lucas, our studio’s Creative Director and your new best friend. From the moment you request a session, Lucas will take the reigns as your photoshoot wingman.  Lucas will guide you through the process and make sure you’re comfortable every step of the way, from on-set direction, to delivery of shots and retouches.


Lucas began working with GM Studios, LLC shortly after leaving LA where he worked as the Studio Manager for a top headshot photographer. His experience as a studio manager allowed him to perfect a unique method for putting subjects at ease and capturing the very best of each session. He also knows firsthand what it’s like to be in the hot seat as he’s been a working actor for 15+ years. This experience is vital to the process as he knows exactly what our clients not only want but need in order to succeed in this business. At the end of the day, Lucas wants to make sure you’re 100% satisfied with your photos and he won’t rest until you’re there.
