Though his studio is stocked with impressive props and backgrounds, certified professional photographer Aaron Pepis abides by an old-school philosophy: treat every subject as a star. He captures stills of families, high-school seniors, actors, and even pets during customized shoots, and travels off-site to meticulously document weddings. His talent for preserving personalities in his images has led to his status as an in-demand lecturer and magazine contributor, both in America and overseas. Additionally, he can restore cherished antique photos that have been damaged or even ripped into multiple pieces.
