About The Photographer


Hagop has always been a photographer, it is not a career change. He is and always has been a full time professional photographer.

Photography Background

Photography is something he had a passion for since he was very young when his father bought him his first camera. He learned from a professional photographer friend of the family about exposure, lighting, developing film… then became the “official photographer” for his high school. He started in photojournalism and gradually developed his portrait skills. He also learned retouching on both negatives and prints.

As he matured, Hagop has become an award-winning photographer. He has learned how to pose portraits but at the same time have them look natural. The contemporary portraits and professional headshots he creates for his clients bring out their personality in a comfortable and relaxed manner. He improves his craft by keeping up with photography technology and listening to the needs of his clients.

Retouching

He started with digital retouching on version 2.5 of Photoshop in 1994 and has
mastered his skills using Photoshop and other software. He will retouch your
digital photo with you present so he has your input. Clients are amazed at the level of expertise he has in retouching.

Experience

Over the 25 plus years photographing in the San Francisco Bay Area, he has photographed portraits for doctors, lawyers, students, CEO’s, authors… just about any profession you can think of. The list of companies he has photographed includes Frank, Rimerman + Co. LLP,  Amazon, Oracle, Johnson & Johnson, Stanford University, Microsoft, Varian Medical Systems, Adaptive Insight, Howard Rome Martin & Ridley, Chase Bank, K&L Gates, Absolute Mortgage Banking, Longitude Capital, IMorgon, Oncomdx, Redbird Advanced Learning to name of few.
