About Me

Hi, my name is Gusmank. I am a professional Bali photographer, born and risen with the warm and spiritual culture of Bali.

A lifetime ago I started out as a creative director of a wedding magazine. Those years taught me all about visual storytelling and the beauty of wedding photography. In 2016, I was selected as one of Fujifilm X-Photographer specializing in wedding photography – undoubtedly one of my photography journey highlights.

My works can be described as a combination of fine art photography and photojournalism. The goal is to create beautifully crafted images but keeping the moments authentic.

With over 10 years of professional experience, I’m providing a wide range of Bali photographer services such as wedding photojournalism, pre-wedding or engagement, honeymoon, and travel photography. A professional Bali photographer available for destinations wedding around the world.

Love of My Life

This is my girlfriend Angendari, we’ve been together for 13 years (!!!) since I was in University and she was in high school! She also a graphic designer. We built this company together and she is the one who manages this company and design everything.

Our love life is the inspirations behind all my works.
