Aidan Guerra says he’s not always good with words, but calls his lens the “paintbrush” that allows him to visually interact with and reflect the world he sees.
The self-proclaimed photography “addict” has been taking pictures since he was a kid. He is rarely without his camera.
Now he has his own photography business.
“I thought it was an art form that was really unique,” he says. “I really like people. And I see things that maybe most people don’t pay attention to.”
Aidan works in dramatic portraiture, dabbles in mixed media, and roams Edmonton with a street photography group to record the city’s grit and raw beauty.
He has a knack for unique lighting, along with photographing the unexpected.
“Sometimes I’ll see a moment and stop a person so I can capture it,” he says.
Aidan is often hired to cover events for local non-profits.
He is currently working on a project to visually document Edmonton’s old buildings “before they are demolished because of modernization.”
He is available for portraits and other photography work.
