More about Ari R....

What do you love about your job?

I appreciate the often unseen beauty of everyday life, and I strive to capture that in every picture. I want my audience to feel a connection to my photographs through the story that they are trying to tell.
My photography is a visual symphony of everything I have lived, all the music I’ve heard, all the books I’ve read and all the people I’ve loved.

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

I have done portraits, events, wedding, aerial, landscape, commercial products and food photography. Although my style of photography is unobtrusive, I enjoy working with the subject in a friendly manner making the shoot a fun experience as well.

A fun fact about this photographer

I would love to one day build a night sky observatory in my backyard, however, I am afraid that I would spent excessive amounts of time in it. Maybe one day, when I am old and retired :)
