Presenter Bio

Ed Aghajanian is a self-taught photographer who has taken formal classes at the Cleveland Photographic Society, as well as attended a number of seminars and workshops over the years.  When he was 19, Ed's mother handed him a Kodak Instamatic camera as he was going out the door to a college field geology class in Northwestern Wyoming.  When Ed told her "I don't know anything about taking pictures," she reminded him that he did know how to read and that there were instructions inside the box. Ed read the manual and he's been taking pictures ever since.

Ed's primary focus is landscape and nature photography.  He dabbles in macro photography and architectural photography, as well.  He has also shot sporting events, primarily NCAA Division I Lacrosse. 

For a sample of his work, you can visit him on Instagram: @lighttrecker22.
