My name is Hooman and photography has always been a large part of my life. I built my first camera with my dad when I was eight years old in my hometown of Winston-Salem, NC. That first camera is what taught me about composition, light and timing.
My first SLR camera was a used Nikon which I received as a high school graduation present. I took it with me to Wake Forest University; and as I got my degree in Physics, I found myself taking photos of everything from university events to landscapes. After college, while working as a corporate pilot, I continued developing my skills as a photographer by taking photos of bands throughout North Carolina; and then in 2005 I was asked to photograph a wedding.
Wedding photography combined what I had been photographing my whole life: Portraits, photojournalism of events, landscape, music, and capturing the most important and elusive element of any good photo: emotion.
I was hooked from that first wedding and transitioned from a career as a pilot to a career as a photographer. I still fly for pleasure, but photography is now my full time passion. I photograph around 50 weddings a year along with a handful of family sessions.
I live in Winston-Salem, NC with my awesome wife Debbie and routinely cover weddings all over North Carolina, as well as around the country and international destinations.
