My name is Amin Rahnama, and I'm a Photographer / Graphic Designer and Web Developer based in Bethesda, Maryland.
My passion for photography is closely related to another passion - painting which goes back to my childhood and my family. I'm from an arty sort of family. A family of nature inspired painters who were my first inspiration to become an artist. It was through painting that I saw and felt the spark of inspiration, power of imagination and the magic of creation. Painting taught me how to see just like what Dorthea Lange said about camera, "the camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera".
As I evolved by going through stages and changes in my life so did my approach toward art. I realized that capturing a brief moment of vanishing reality can be as profound and powerful as recreating the universe based on our own experience and understanding of life. I moved from painting to photography because of the ease with which I could freeze a moment with real visual elements from the real world.
The philosophy behind my photography is not merely to document and capture things as they are, but to share what I saw, experienced and felt at that moment.
Photography is my passion and this web site is to share them all with you and get your feedback. I would love to hear from you, so feel free to contact me and leave comments via the contact form.
