My name is Aaron Palaian. I'm a Detroit area photographer that's lived and shot in the cities of Pittsburgh, Chicago, Houston, Leadville, Boston, and more. I grew up northwest of Detroit and just recently returned with my family to live in Lake Orion.
I was formally educated in Visual Communications (Bachelor of Fine Arts) at the Illinois Institute of Art in Chicago, 1999-2002 where I received an education in graphic design, website development, typography, packaging, marketing, drawing, painting, and photography. My true love has been photography from the moment I first picked up a real camera about 15 years ago.
Every unique moment only happens once, and if I can be there to capture the best of those moments and freeze them for others to enjoy, well, that's a pretty special thing. There's really nothing like it.
