About The Photographer

Photography Background

Hagop has always been a photographer, it is not a career change. 

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, he now applies the skills he learned into his digital retouching.

Professional Photographer

He is and always has been a full time professional photographer. 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. Visit our Portfolio.

He improves his craft by keeping up with photography technology and listening to the needs of his clients.

Hagop’s retouching skills started with Black and White negative retouching in his first studio. A few years later, he learned how to retouch color negatives and prints. 

He started with digital retouching on version 2.5 of Photoshop in 1994 and has mastered his skills using Photoshop and other desktop publishing software. He also creates digital art.
