About Photography by Aaron
Photography by Aaron is owned and operated by Port Huron, Michigan photographer Aaron Smith. What started as mainly a passing interest blossomed into a passion to create the best imagery possible. After starting out with film in the late 90s, Aaron has happily transitioned into digital and loves keeping up with the latest techniques and technology not only behind the lens, but also in post processing.
One of my favorite quotes of all time, is from a very well respected National Geographic photographer, Sam Abell.
“Above all, it’s hard learning to live with vivid mental images of scenes I cared for and failed to photograph. It is the edgy existence within me of these unmade images that is the only assurance that the best photographs are yet to be made.” – Sam Abell, Stay This Moment : The Photographs of Sam Abell by Sam Abell (Photographer), Robert E. Gilka , ISBN: 0934738726
That quote sums up the entire reason I keep taking photographs. Memories can fade and change over time while photographs capture these moments frozen in time, forever. Trying to capture those moments as I saw them, through my own eyes, is what drives me to capture the best photographs I can.
My desire, my passion, is to capture those moments.
