Diana Cordero Gamboa (Corgam) was born in 1984 in Zacatecas, Mexico, in a household where music and music iconography were always present. At age 8 her life changed forever when MTV hit her eyeballs and melted her brains. Music and images blended together and manipulated in such freestyle form. Diana aspired to become a director just like her idols Michel Gondry and Chris Cunningham. She pursued a bachelor's degree in multimedia & communications, where she got her first formal training in photography and video production. At the same time, Diana grew obsessed with music as a listener, as a player (she’s been playing drums since 15) and also as a capturer.

 

At 23 she left Mexico for the first time to pursue an MFA, where she got a Degree in Cinematography in 2011 from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. That same year, she began interning for BAMM.tv, an audiovisual recording music company. After a year, she became Director of Photography and Lead Video Editor. Having worked in this position gave her key tools to the work she does nowadays with photography, specifically in the areas of post-production and color. It was also in 2011 when Diana created Synesthesia, an experimental and documentary music photography webzine, where she explores visual storytelling, digital manipulation, color grading and other photo techniques as an aim to further explore the  music photography genre.

 

She still lives, shoots & plays in San Francisco.
