My name is Araya (rhymes with papaya) and I am a Los Angeles based photographer specializing in portrait and entertainment photography.
I am a premier entertainment photographer with Getty Images and WireImage as well as a photographer with Lucasfilm, Ltd. and a contributing photographer with Pasadena Magazine. I work out of the Los Angeles area but I am available to travel for photography shoots.
Photographing events is natural to me and photographing portraits inspires me. Photography is my passion and my livelihood. I’m always learning new techniques and allowing myself to be inspired by everything around me. I tend to have an active imagination which lends itself well to abstract and creative photography. I love to laugh and I live creatively.
I enjoy one on one interaction as well as the creative camaraderie of working with a team of talented people. I’m a "people person" and I can walk into a room and know everyone within the first 10 minutes.
Feel free to contact me with any further questions.
