Hi, I'm Ara and I'm a photographer.  

I do a great many kinds of photography, and have worked in studios, on film sets and even done the occasional wedding in the past.  

These days, due to poor health meaning I can't run a full time business any more, I'm pretty much a hobbyist, and only shoot what I love. I mainly shoot roller derby and LARP, and get a real kick out of showing people themselves being Big Damn Heroes!  From scrims to British Champs games, small LARP player events to big arena battles where the future of nations is decided, I love derby, I love LARP, and I *really* love shooting them!

When I'm able to, I also love shooting live performance - burlesque, bands, circus... if someone's up on a stage (or doing walkabout) being awesome, I love to be there documenting the awesome.

This stuff does take time though, and adds to wear and tear on my equipment. I still have to pay for insurance (including public liability, so if I somehow manage to injure you with my equipment, you get a payout too!) for this work, and I have to pay travel, food etc - so I'm swallowing my pride and asking for a chip-in from you guys, the awesome people I point a camera at.

I'm aiming to produce at least a photo-set a month, publicly available, released under CC-BY-NC. I'm hoping to be able to produce a lot more than that in practice!  

I haven't thought of perks for patrons yet, but that'll be coming soon, along with a nice header image and all that pretty stuff.

I'll be attempting to blog as I go, keeping people updated with what I'm up to, where I've been, and where I'm going to be.

Thanks for reading this far, and if you decide to chip in, thank you so much for helping me keep documenting people doing amazing things!
