Atlanta based portrait photographer specializing in headshots, lifestyle, candid, glamour, corporate and conceptual portraits. My style of photography is to create powerful and artistic images of my clients through effective use of lighting, staging backdrops and poses. As a portrait photographer my goal is to understand and build a connection with my subjects, creating an extraordinary, relaxed and comfortable atmosphere for me to capture stunning images of my clients. It is important to me to ensure that my client’s experience not only sets the stage for great images to be captured but is also unforgettable.
Inspired by iconic images and stylistic experience with an understanding of lighting, materials and styles built upon my Applied Science degree in Photography, I am able to achieve candid and unique portraits. Portraits aimed to elevate the artistic imagery of my subjects. I will not only ensure your experience with me is worth sharing with your friends and family, but feel that when you finish having a session with me you will feel like the best you have ever felt.
Arik, our photographer, did a fantastic job. We love our family photos and very much enjoyed the session with him. He made it so easy for us and even the kids enjoyed it.
Our pictures came out so great! I highly recommend him and will definitely use him next year again.
Wow! We are so happy with our our family photos and our extended family has been complementing us on the photos we recently had done with Enspire. Our photographer, Arik made us feel so comfortable and was very professional. He set up for the still shots first and then the action shots came out so well. He was timely every step of the way and with four kids that was important for us.
I hired Arik to photograph a 50th birthday party for me as my gift to the birthday girl. He was very attentive and is the most professional person I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. The photographs came out beautiful! I’ll definitely hire him again.
We are so happy with our family Christmas pictures. Arik is every patient, very attentive And very accommodating. We look forward to working with him again in the future.
Arik is very timely and patient with his work. He completes preparation well in advance and makes sure his clients feel comfortable during the session.

Arik rendered phenomenal work for our agency, surpassing our formidable expectations for excellence, while gracefully adhering to deadlines and thriving in an often high-pressure environment .

I recently shot creative and moody style portraits for my modeling portfolio with Enspire Photography and I can’t wait to book another session! Friendly, professional & talented. Simple characteristics of a great photographer, yet it’s getting harder to find individuals with all three these days. Check out Arik’s work, you won’t be disappointed!
