AHG Photography

In 2016 one of my iPhone photos was featured in an Apple campaign – Shot on iPhone 6s – colors. The photo was displayed on billboards in 23 countries, and magazines around the World.

My photography journey started in 2001, way back when cameras had films and slides. I developed my skills over the years and joined the digital photography world. I supported small businesses by providing headshots & business photography.
