My name is Ara. I am a professional portrait/lifestyle/product photographer based in Los Angeles, California. It all started with writing imaginary stories when I was younger, until the day I picked up a camera and discovered another way to express myself. 10 years ago I got my first camera:) Finally 6 years ago at one moment I was like “This is it!” and I became obsessed with photography forever.
Telling stories!!! That’s what we all photographers looking for in this form of art. And I’m not exception. But exception in a way that I tell my stories with my vision, that’s the power that nobody can take from me. The story telling power that lets you communicate with almost 8 billion people in this planet.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I’ve done Fashion/Engagement/Family/Portrait/Product photography and lot more. I’d say they all have different techniques to shoot but also share a lot of things in common. Lighting/composition/color grading I can name those things forever but all comes down to one thing that I mentioned earlier. Story! Those all are puzzles which is different in every scenario, when you get them right you’re story is complete. There is no right or wrong technical things in art but there is fundamentals and experience. So back to the question how do I make my photographs special? well, I solve the puzzle and try to make the story as deep possible.
A fun fact about this photographer
I studied acting at collage for 2 years and was into mixing music for 3 years. Which was fun I enjoyed and learned a lot. Not only it was fun it now helps me to lot with videography.
