Thank you for visiting my page. I figured you might be interested to know a bit about me. Well, for starters, my name is Amin (pronounce it like “I mean”). Let me first start telling out some basics about me, then why it did take (I will try to avoid cliche as much as possible) for me to be a photographer.
Okay, I’m an (almost) 30 years old grad student at Purdue. I like doing research and learning knew things every day. I was born in Iran but now I’m living in West Lafayette, Indiana.
Enough of these cliche, I know my educational backgrounds are not even related to photography, but does it have to? Really? I am not trying to downplay the legitimate educational background here, but I strongly believe that “being passionate” about photography, authentic moments, and real people is way more important. Especially in this era in which we can learn every thing Online (Which that’s how I did it).
But why I am interested in photography? Especially portrait photography (which I consider myself one) Well I am pretty introvert guy, and for people like us, communicating your feeling is somewhat hard.
All those years I was passionate about mathematical and computer sciences but I had the hardest time explaining my feeling to others, but everything is different with portrait photography, you can observe then, try to feel they mood (either happiness, sadness, anger, etc). You can feel the moments. As the famous Don McCullin said:
“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” –
For every project that I want to do, above everything else, I want to keep my passions about your photos. It is important to avoid feeling nervous, which trust me, is a real thing. I’m open to meet you before for a coffee and discussed logistics. Especially this could be helpful if we are trying to have big project.
The services that I try to cover is Portrait session, engagements/weddings, boudoir, and other party and gathering, Here are some basic package that I’ll be covering, but please feel free to contact me and discuss everything in details.
