Aaron Anderson

My journey started back in 2009 when I stole my wife’s camera (her birthday present no less) and fell in love with making pictures. I am now a commercial photographer who specializes in portrait, sport/action, and composite imagery. Currently, we are roaming the country as family of five in an RV… seeking good lighting and a great cup of coffee! I’ve been blessed to work with some incredible clients like Monster Energy, Bosch, Oracle, Ariat, Dragon Alliance, First Bank, and many more. Mostly, I’m just grateful to make pictures of stuff for a living. There’s a moment on every set where I pinch myself and say a little thank you to the man upstairs.

Aaron Anderson is a dedicated student of fashion photography. In fact, he credits much of his skill to years of studying lighting setups – and the regular issue of Vogue! Today, Aaron is undoubtedly a guiding figure for many himself, picking up the mantle from those who blazed a trail for him.

Like all the most creative image makers, Aaron imbues plenty of passion into his work. His keen interest in cinema has shaped his photographs through the years, with a focus on complete scenes. A garment may be the star of the show, but everything in your frame should tell part of the story.

While Aaron can’t transfer all the knowledge he’s acquired through his years of study, he can narrow it down to the bare essentials. In his video above, he discusses just how effective a focus on environment, colorful lighting, and creating a physical set can be. The examples illustrate his philosophy, but then it’s over to you to run wild with creativity.

Soak up Aaron’s expertise, then let the fun begin. His chosen winner will be creating their next project with a FUJIFILM X-T4 and XF16-80mmF4 R OIS WR! Document an image, then upload it using the ‘Enter Now’ button below by 11:59PM (EST) on October 31, 2022. You can also download a PDF with a summary of Aaron’s advice, which is as follows:

1) Use your environment
2) Be bold with color
3) Create a set

Good luck!
