Bio - Aaron Meyers
<span style="font-size:20pt;">W</span>elcome! Feel free to look around my photos, take a peek at my travels, and enjoy yourself. I'm always bringing my camera with me so remember to stop back again soon!

Aaron Meyers is an amateur photographer living in Silicon Valley, CA. He shoots mainly nature photography but is slowly expanding to people and more!

Although I've only had a dSLR since 2007, I've always had a camera attached to my hip. My interest in photography started when I was in middle school and I was invited to spend 2 weeks sailing around the water of Vancouver, British Columbia. I found my dad's old Canon AE-1 and brought it with me. As an Electrical Engineer, my hobby for Photography grew as I started to learn about Image Processing. In 2007 I bought my first dSLR, a <a href="http://imaging.nikon.com/products/imaging/lineup/digitalcamera/slr/d80/index.htm" target="_blank">Nikon D80</a>, and quickly outgrew it's poor low-light capabilities. In 2009 I upgraded to a <a href="http://imaging.nikon.com/products/imaging/lineup/digitalcamera/slr/d300s/index.htm" target="_blank">Nikon D300s</a>. Slowly but surely I'm upgrading my gear as I expand my skills, ability, and continue my travels around the world.

After graduating from the <a href="http://www.umich.edu" target="_blank">University of Michigan</a> with my Masters degree in Electrical Engineering I moved to California where my love of the outdoors is able to roam! I quickly picked up new hobbies in <a href="http://www.aaronmphotography.com/Sports/Skiing/" target="_blank">skiing</a>, <a href="http://www.aaronmphotography.com/keyword/hiking#867399724_r9KE7" target="_blank">hiking</a>, <a href="http://www.aaronmphotography.com/keyword/camping#867399724_r9KE7" target="_blank">camping</a>, scuba diving and rock climbing. Many of my photos come from my yearly pilgrimage to <a href="http://www.aaronmphotography.com/Places/Yosemite/" target="_blank">Yosemite National Park</a>. I love photographing nature but I am also starting to try my hand at <a href="http://www.aaronmphotography.com/people" target="_blank">portrait photography</a> as well.

I hope you enjoy my photos. Everything I post here is for sale. I take many more pictures than I post here and if you are looking for something in particular, feel free to contact me! You can also find me on <a href="http://www.twitter.com/leftquark" target="_blank">Twitter</a>, <a href="http://www.facebook.com/aaron.f.meyers" target="_blank">Facebook</a>, and <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/leftquark" target="_blank">Flickr</a>.

About Me, Hire Me, and more...


Welcome, and thank you for visiting aaronmphotography.com!

Aaron Meyers is a landscape and wedding photographer living in Silicon Valley, CA. Though trained as an electrical engineer at the University of Michigan, Aaron is never happier than when in possession of a good camera and a great view. His love of the outdoors makes for frequent forays into the Californian wilds, where he delights in the stunning vistas of Yosemite National Park, Lake Tahoe, Big Sur, and the Pacific Coast - but it was in Vancouver, British Columbia that (with the help of a pod of orcas and his dad's old Canon AE-1) he first learned to combine his love of nature with a talent for snapping pictures ... He's been hooked ever since.

Though it was the enticing beauty of the natural world that first drew Aaron into photography, he has come to appreciate some of life's other treasures as well, and has since widened his aperture to include a passion for photographing events and weddings. No longer content to merely capture the beauty of a breaking wave or piercing sky, he strives also to capture the moment when lives are joined and joys bestowed; moments that can be cherished and remembered in their fullest and most perfect light. As a photographer of reunions, wedding rehearsals, ceremonies, and receptions, Aaron has earned the high esteem of his clients and is always eager for his next assignment.

Thanks again for visiting the site! Aaron hopes you enjoy his photos and encourages you to visit again soon to catch the shots from his latest travels. If you see a photo you particularly love, please know that all photos posted on this site are available for sale. Also, Aaron always takes many more pictures than are actually posted here, so if you're looking for something in particular please feel free to ask. You can also find him on Facebook, and Flickr.
