Andres Aranda Professional Photographer
My name is Andres and I am a photographer. I obtained my Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Graphic Design in 2012. Prior to graduating college, I pursued, professionally, Real Estate. It was in the business of Real Estate, helping families and investors buy and sell property, I first became fascinated and intrigued with photography.
Photography began as a hobby. I would take pictures of homes and upload them for various Realtors & home-buying purchasers', for their previewing pleasure, to MLS. I started acquiring the “knack” and eye for capturing stunning and powerful images by photographing and staging homes and showcasing them online. As time progressed, as my work gained recognition, other Realtors began hiring me to also take photos of their listings. I even began creating virtual tours and flyers. Taking pictures, editing and organizing them took on a life of its own and became its own mini-business. As my skills and creativity matured, I also began photographing people and started creating and designing business cards and other various stationary and marketing media. It was in Real Estate where my future as a photographer would be born.
There is no limit to what I can do with a camera. There isn’t one particular aspect nor subject that I prefer to shoot over another. Versatility is essential; being able to capture stunning images of anything and everything is what truly inspires and ignites the passion within me to excel at what I do as a professional photographer.
I’m definitely a people person; I love to make people laugh, I’m very outgoing and fun-loving. All of my attributes as an individual and each of my characteristics are key and beneficial qualities to possess; being personable and approachable help me to excel, especially in this particular industry. It definelty helps when working with families, but even moreso when photographing kids! As a daddy myself, I love children, no matter how young nor old. More importantly, children are comfortable and love being around me; children of all ages are usually easily entertained by my expressions , peronality and fun-loving character.
I believe it’s necessary to have that trust and respect for one another when taking photos. Genuinness, sincerity, owning integrity, possessing great foundations and morals, all help to not only be successful, but help you, as a customer, to be comfortable when working with a professional who is taking pictures of your most prized, precious, and timeless images. I love what I do, I’m good at doing it, and most of all, photography is a gift that I’ve been blessed with. There’s more to taking a picture than just pressing a button on a camera… it takes awareness and recognition. After all, every winning smile, every timeless image, are each in themselves, precious “Moments in Time!”
