A lone boat on a lonely river in Luang Prabang, Laos. 


Editorial and travel photographs shot on a variety of assignments around Asia and beyond--from the remote northern reaches of Mongolia to the beautifully dense and chaotic streets of downtown Tokyo and elsewhere in between. 

about aaron

Hello, I’m Aaron. I’m an editorial and commercial photographer based in New Orleans, Louisiana. After spending the first 15 years of my career living abroad, I moved back to the south to be near family, and to engage in stories closer to home.  

I’ve worked around the world for some of the industry’s largest companies and publications, and my photographs have been shown in galleries in the US, Vietnam, and Malaysia. 

Outside of photography, I spend my time gardening, painting, and renovating my very old house. I also take a lot of walks with my two wonderful dogs—Arlo and Maya.  

I’m a light packer and an easygoing travel partner. I’m available for assignments in New Orleans and beyond, and would love to hear from you.
