Portfolio of the week
Who are you?
My name is Aaron Pedersen, I am an editorial & commercial photographer in Edmonton (western Canada). I like to take a more personal approach with my subjects, by that I mean I’d rather not get to complicated in setup and focus on what the person in front of the lens is doing an how to get the best out of them.
What are you inspired by?
I’m a big of a nerd when it comes to photo history and theory, so I love reading and hearing the stories behind photographs. I just read an article about Carl Fischer’s late 60’s Esquire covers and got me buzzing.
What was the last movie you watched?
The last film I watched was Made Of Stone, the Shane Meadows documentary about The Stone Roses
What was the last book you read?
I’ll be honest, I read mostly magazines but I have a long standing bookmark in Todd Babiak’s "Come, Barbarians"
Do you have any role model?
I have no particular role models but I’ve always been pretty influenced by the work of Rankin and David Bailey
What is your next creative project?
There’s a couple music videos in the works and about to start a promo for a modeling agency I work closely with.
What do you like about Portfoliobox?
What I love about Portfoliobox is that I can manage my site and put the work up that I want people to see with ease. The changes are instant so I can preview as I’m working on it. Plus the overall design is great, I get compliments on it all the time.
