ABOUT

HEY THERE! I’M AARON, A PHOTOGRAPHER AND VISUAL ARTIST LIVING IN PITTSBURGH, PA. MY PHOTOGRAPHY RANGES FROM WEDDINGS AND PORTRAIT WORK TO LANDSCAPES AND STREET PHOTOGRAPHY. THESE DAYS, MY VISUAL ART PRIMARY FOCUSES ON THE USE OF WHAT I CALL FLUID ACRYLICS. 

 

VISUAL ART WAS MY FIRST CALLING, SPECIFICALLY REALIST GRAPHITE DRAWINGS FOLLOWED BY ABSTRACT PAINTINGS USING TEXTURES. ALWAYS LOOKING FOR SOMETHING NEW, I DECIDED TO TRY PHOTOGRAPHY. EQUIPPED WITH MY NIKON D3300 AND KIT LENS, I SET OUT TO LEARN EVERYTHING I COULD ABOUT IT. GETTING THE BEST OUT OF MY SIMPLE EQUIPMENT IN ANY SITUATION WAS VITAL TO ME. I QUICKLY BECAME PASSIONATE ABOUT LANDSCAPE AND STREET PHOTOGRAPHY BUT I WANTED MORE AND SO I TRIED MY HAND AT WEDDINGS AND PORTRAIT WORK.

 

THAT WAS 4 YEARS AGO. SINCE THEN, I HAVE SIGNIFICANTLY UPGRADED MY GEAR, AND NOW COVER AROUND 5-6 WEDDINGS PER YER AS WELL AS MANY PHOTO SESSIONS RANGING FROM ENGAGEMENT SHOOTS TO SENIOR PHOTOS.  ONE OF MANY FAVORITE PARTS OF PHOTOGRAPHY IS BEING ABLE TO PURSUE MY CREATIVITY WHILE MEETING AND WORKING WITH NEW PEOPLE ALL THE TIME.

I AM CURRENTLY BOOKING WEDDINGS, ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS, AND REGULAR PORTRAIT SESSIONS. EXAMPLES, PRICING, AND OTHER INFORMATION CAN BE FOUND IN THE PHOTOGRAPHY SECTION.

AS A SELF-TAUGHT ARTIST LIVING IN PITTSBURGH, I TRY TO DIVE INTO MY CREATIVE SIDE EACH DAY. CONSTANTLY LEARNING, I AM NOT AFRAID TO EXPLORE NEW IDEAS, TECHNIQUES, OR WORK OUTSIDE OF MY COMFORT ZONE.

FOR THE PAST YEAR, MY WORK HAS BEEN FOCUSED ON THE USE OF FLUID ACRYLICS AND RESIN. AFTER A YEAR OR SO OF SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS IN THE STUDIO, I CREATED MY OWN MIXTURE OF ACRYLIC PAINTS, VARIOUS PAINT MEDIUMS, AND SOMETIMES SILICONS. USING THIS MIXTURE ALONG WITH A FEW SPECIFIC TECHNIQUES, I’M ABLE TO CREATE PAINTINGS THAT ARE INTERESTING AND UNIQUE. MOST TIMES, I PRIMARILY PAINT ON EITHER WOOD PANELS OR STRETCHED CANVAS BUT SOMETIMES USE HEAVY WATER COLOR PAPER AS WELL. OTHER THAN PAINTINGS, I ALSO USE THIS TECHNIQUE TO CREATE EVERYTHING FROM CUSTOM CLOCKS, TABLES, JEWELRY, DRINK COASTERS, AND EVEN CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS.

MOST OF MY COLOR PALETTES ARE INSPIRED BY MY VISITS TO PLACES LIKE THE JERSEY SHORE, MEXICAN CARIBBEAN, AND MOST RECENTLY ARUBA. I’VE ALWAYS DREAMED OF LIVING ALONG THE BEACH SOMEWHERE AND MY GOAL WITH MY WORK IS TO REMIND EVERYONE OF THESE BEAUTIFUL PLACES. 

THOUGH MOST OF MY RECENT WORK CONSISTS OF FLUID ACRYLICS, MY CREATIVE STREAK STARTED WITH REALISTIC GRAPHITE PORTRAITS AND SIMPLE PEN DRAWINGS.

I CURRENTLY HAVE A SECTION DEDICATED TO ALL AVAILABLE CURRENT WORKS. BUT YOU CAN ALSO SEE MY INVENTORY BY SCHEDULING A STUDIO VISIT, SEEING ME AT AN EVENT, OR BY SIMPLY EMAILING ME WITH QUESTIONS.
