Born and raised in Southern California, as
a first generation Iranian-American,
I majored in photography before
redirecting my focus to fashion and
later pursuing a career as a costume
designer for film and television.
While traveling the world, I have taken the
opportunity to return to my first love and
capture the essence of countless cultures.
Often seeing beyond the blinding poverty,
to bring to life the beauty within the
darkness, I hope that my work moves and
inspires others to travel and search the
world for it’s hidden splendor.
My background in fashion combined with
my deep love for photography results in
images with vibrant textures, colors and
energy. Whether I am shooting fashion,
landscape or people, I love to bring out
and highlight the beauty, energy & life
in everything I capture.
