Aby Tannas

Hello, my name is Aby.

I took up photography about four years ago. I live on Vancouver Island, where it rains for almost half the year and the sky is constantly grey. I felt constantly starved for vibrant colours and light. I started with flowers, capturing their lines, shapes, textures and their vibrant colours which I desperately craved. From there my photography has slowly evolved, however my goal has always been the same. I want to capture the essence of my subject, whatever or whoever it may be. While I specialize in travel photography, my guilty pleasure is street photography. I want to make pictures that can transport viewers to a certain place and be present in that moment. I want to make pictures that evoke emotions and resonate.

Please leave me a message or send me an e-mail if you’d like to work with me of if you’d like to purchase some of my photos. More about me and The Hangry Beast
