Ari Rex APP.
Ari Rex is an international award winning photographer based in Canberra.
His interest in photography started when he was a little boy. His father had an old Zorki camera and Ari was fascinated by it, since then his passion for photography kept growing and expanding.
Ari is driven by perfection. His broad technical knowledge has allowed him to work in many fields of photography including portraits, weddings,fashion, events, products and aerial photography. For Ari there is nothing as magical as when the camera captures the full splendour of the Milky Way arching over the horizon. It is a skill he loves to share through specialist courses for those keen to perfect their own experience of capturing the stars.
Ari holds an Advanced Diploma of Photography from CIT, Canberra.
He is also an accredited member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP).
"My photography is a visual symphony of everything I have lived, all the music I’ve heard, all the books I’ve read and all the people I’ve loved "
“I appreciate the often unseen beauty of everyday life, and I strive to capture that in every picture. I want my audience to feel a connection to my photographs through the story that they are trying to tell.”
