My name is Aaron Rideout and I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawai. Ive been working as a full-time freelance photographer since 2009. Prior to that, I was working as a preschool teacher where I stumbled upon photograhy. It first began as a means to document my students but soon progressed into an obsession. Not long after than, I was encouranged by everyone around me to persure a different career. I used most of my savings to purchase cameras, lenses and lighing equiptment and the rest is history.
