My world is about living a purposeful life, creativity and storytelling. I love coffee, language learning, photography, my faith and creativity. I am passionate about telling stories through writing, photography and video. Images and video are powerful tools in moving the heart.
Photography is my medium of choice in the creative process. The camera is a powerful tool that allows me to tell the stories that would otherwise remain untold and voiceless. Being human is an incredible adventure. My content has been featured in digital ads, trade publications and marketing collateral. Based in Portland, Oregon with my incredible wife, Jaylene, and our non-human children: Charlie, Harley + Roscoe, I create purposeful stills and moving pictures for myself and other cool people to enjoy.
Together with my wife, we co-run the creative photography company – Jaylene and Aaron Photography. We work with brands, startups, influencers, commercial businesses and cool people looking to have their story documented (www.patelzick.com ).
Outside of telling stories, I am a language learner, volunteer, husband, dog lover + coffee enthusiast. I look for inspiration in simple things and love to travel.
