An inside look into the lens of photographer- Edris Davarian!
Please introduce yourself to the readers:
I've been a professional photographer for the past 10 yrs. I have worked as a photographer for models, weddings, singers and actors. I look at my photography as an art. I am an artist and I take my work very seriously. Over the last 10 yrs, photography has become my passion. There is something about photography that relaxes and excites me and a certain thrill that I get when taking pictures that cannot be expressed with words. I prefer to photograph special moments, capture beauty, and make my viewers see it through my eyes.
When did you first decide to get into photography?
Upon graduating from college with an Art degree in 2002, I decided to follow my passion and dream of becoming a professional photographer.
What are your favorite subjects to capture?
I truly love photographing people. I love capturing the expression and emotion of a person. Discovering new faces and first time models, the innocence they walk in with, and the beauty that exudes once they are in front of my lens.
Did you get any professional training for your skills?
I was a self taught photographer who learned from watching other great photographers back home. My college art degree really helped bring out my creative and artistic streak. I saw beauty, colors, and emotions in every subject!
Who inspired you growing up?
I was tremendously inspired by seeing fashion models in magazines and the photographers who were able to capture the beauty, sexiness and rawness of the photos.
What have been some of the highlights so far, for you as a photographer?
I have photographed over 430 models, actors and singers and thousands of freelance subjects. Seeing first time models getting their careers started based on my photographs is very gratifying. I feel proud of my work and the fact that I had something to do with these models that has led them to their own success.
What projects are you currently working on?
I mainly work with modeling agencies. I am in charge of discovering new models on a weekly basis. I also do freelance photography for weddings, editorials and private photo shoots.
