Aaron’s first important email was sent to Graham Nixon, owner of Resist Records – his favourite bands label. Aaron was 14, and it was poorly written, but Graham replied saying he would check out the bands single when it was recorded. From that moment on Aaron became addicted to making stuff happen, and I realised it was as simple as ‘doing it’. Since then Aaron’s recorded that single, toured the country and went on to book national tours for different musicians as a promoter. Aaron then entered the world of advertising as a strategist, working for big and small brands including Samsung, Gatorade, Pepsi, NFL, Dyson and Sailor Jerry. Throughout all of this, Aaron fell in love with photography and film and has now begun doing both of these things professionally under the name ‘the a:m creative’, flying drones and working closely with social influencers creating online content. Aaron’s love of communication and creating media stems from the love of connecting with people at a deeper level, and for that reason everything he creates he aims to elicit some form of emotion connection with his audience. Aaron believes in the power of storytelling over all else.

The photo was a RAW photo processed through lightroom and then photoshop. I used lightroom to bring out the colour and exposure, and use photoshop to sharpen the photo and adjust curves.
