aaron riveroll | about me
My name is Aaron and I'm a photographer. I love taking pictures...but I really enjoy taking pictures of people. I specialize in glamour photography, casual and fashion, and wedding/engagement portraiture. I've also been known to do a little videography as well as a little web and graphic design. I designed the site you are looking at now, as a matter of fact.
Oh, and I've been told I make a killer peanut butter and jelly sandwich. So what if the person who told me that was my mom??
So here is my bio...short and sweet (which, incidentally, is how I like my women)...
I live in San Diego California. I grew up in a small town about 40 minutes northeast of San Diego called Ramona. The town itself is famous for cows and not much else, but it was a great place to grow up. I went to school at Point Loma Nazarene University and graduated in 2002 with a degree in Music Education with an emphasis in vocal arts.
With degree in hand, I headed out into the world. The most natural thing to do after getting a degree in music would be to start a career in mortgage lending. We all know how that business turned out...and since the bellyflop, I've been taking pictures full time...and I LOVE it. I'm not in a hurry to head back to the cubicle.
I like to have fun. I would hope people would discover that within 5 minutes of knowing me.
I am a self-taught photographer...meaning I don't have any formal traning, per se. I learn by doing, by reading books, blogs, web sites, pamphlets, brochures, and other publications, by looking at examples, by listening to podcasts, and by surrounding myself with talented people.
I am a published photographer.
I will make you look ridiculously good-looking.
I shoot with Canon cameras and lenses.
I'll most likely add to this list of little interesting tidbits about myself...but for now...that's it. Feel free to ask me anything your little heart desires...and I hope to work with you in the future!
